I thought it was about time to do another post about stuff I haven’t written full reviews for. Without delay –
Tetsuo II – I didn’t review this one because I reviewed the first one and there really isn’t that much else to say about it. There’s more body horror, more strangeness. It’s definitely worth a watch if you like the first one or interested in some of the stranger Japanese horror out there. It has a more traditional narrative than the first one and is more accessible but it’s still strange. I don’t think it’s as good as the first one.
There is a third Tetsuo film that I haven’t seen. One day I will get round to it.
Ring of Bright Water – My mum recommend this to me and I was quite surprised. It’s a nice little family film that has some funny moments. The shark hunting and cutting the shark up wasn’t nice to watch, but the rest of the film is great. It’s not something that I would have stumbled across, but I’m glad I’ve seen it. I just don’t have much to say about it, which is why I didn’t write a full review. It’s funny and enjoyable.
My Generation – The documentary from Michael Caine about the counter-culture of the 1960s. Very entertaining and interesting. I saw a trailer for this when it first came out and thought it looked good, took a while but I finally got around to seeing it. It didn’t disappoint. I think anyone who has an interest in history, music from The Who or The Beatles or Michael Caine will find this one worth watching.
I can’t remember what it was called, but when watching My Generation, there was a trailer on the DVD for a documentary about The Who and their managers. I ended up watching this as well, which was okay but was very long and could have been half the length.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
