Crows Zero I & II, The Incredibles.

 

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).

For info, controllers have long cables like we had in Europe and its original adapter plugs that has the same home and a 110/220v switch. In short a real small hybrid. But let the technical side and space for pictures as I propose here a side by side unique because it is the Super Comboy with its version of Super Mario All Stars Korean next to his Japanese counterpart, one Super Famicom (with its version of Super Mario All Stars also):
