Et hop, Three new Blu-ray movies in the video library! The first box contains the 2 films “Crows Zero” director Takashi Miike, one of my favorite Japanese directors with Sogo Ishii and Takeshi Kitano (whose last feature film “Outrage” is really excellent also). Miike's films have the distinction of being always either hyper violent (voir Ichi the killer) or else downright unhealthy (I think back to Gozu… ) but sometimes comic fantastico (yokai wars, Sukiyaki Western Django). It is also to him that we owe the film adaptation times and my bad for not Ryu Ga Gotoku (yakuza). In 2 films Crows Zero, we are in the high school gang fight loubars : the “Bancho”. Another theme of violence so, but with some very funny moments, see fantastic (some guys are so hefty that is is simply inhuman!). If we could transpose a Beat'em all film, Crows Zero is the perfect example.
Largely based on the eponymous manga (it even inspired Worst, GTO, DROP and other manga like this), Crows have also had the right to his game on Saturn at the time, All Beat'em with a superb 2D whose price is unfortunately very high.
Note that apart from Japan, this case appears to be an exclusive French, it is zoned B and, From what I read in the Support Forums, many people we envi these two films. For once we are well served in the hexagon, and for 24 the euro 2 movies on amazon.fr, I was not going to miss!
Next comes the latest film from Pixar studio to do us the honor to come out in blu-ray (I think it came out only a week ago) : The Incredibles. I rediscovered this film commissioned by Disney with great joy for indeed I had not seen since its release. It is always so funny and it has not aged badly at all, Pixar quality short one and that's it! It's fun, long, damn good, for all ages, and blu-ray release is again on top.
