Some New Movies

I bought a few new DVD’s worth mentioning:

  • Kung Pow: Enter the Fist – Steve O (of Oderbattle fame) has taken what was probably a really bad 70’s kung foo movie not staring him, and turned it into a really bad kung foo movie staring him. Using computers and stuff he has taken the original film and added himself as The Chosen One and new dialog..why? I dunno, he’s either a comic genius or a nutcase.
  • 8 Mile – Eminem has taken what was probably a really bad 90’s rap movie, not staring him into a really bad rap movie staring him..oh waitaminute. I actually enjoyed 8 Mile and I’m not afraid to admit I’ve liked Eminem before he became MTV safe. The usual complaint about 8 Mile is that there’s not enough music, which is true, but the rap battles make up for it, worth a look.
  • Westworld – Picked this up cheap from JB (my favourite shop in the whole world, this week), the classic sci-fi featuring a shaved monkey and a tube of toothbpaste…umm, wrong movie! I haven’t seen this since I was about 12, and I loved it then, I haven’t watched it yet, I bet it’s aged really badly.

Don’t worry, I’m not turning the Rancho into a movie review site, I suck at reviews (as you can see).
