    Time and Tide

    ★★★★

    Delightfully eccentric, consistently exciting and sometimes unusual action, influenced by John Woo, multilingual because why not? Another Hark Tsui classic.

    Starshaped

    ★★★★½

    The filmmaking, the state of the band, the banter, the performances, everything is 100% pure chaos and I love it so much. They don't even play Star Shaped here!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Me: "Is this going to be... Diabochic?"

    Anna Kendrick, like a minute later: "Are you trying to Diabolique me??"

    Yeah I had a lot of fun with this.

    Hooptober 7.0: 2/33

    Anime legends Katsuhiro Otomo, Satoshi Kon and Keiko Nobumoto collaborated on this solid little live-action movie that serves as an endearing commentary on xenophobia and getting over prejudices.

    The dynamic relationship between the yakuza protagonist and the foreign supporting cast is the best thing about this, but despite the title there is actually very little horror here, and it did leave me wanting more in that sense.

    Also, as a huge X Japan fan I very much appreciated the inclusion of their song Celebration here.
