83: Kamikaze Podcast

Download episode 83, here.

It's an Alex-lite episode this week, but this allows me to make a review without any fear of sudden mentions of Napoleon, The Age of Reason or any links to Yale MP3 lectures.

Shootin' The Breeze

Alex beseeches you to try and get Stereopony on the Jimmy Fallon show. Here's a link to the forum.

Review: Kamikaze Taxi

What do you get when you cross a Peruvian immigrant, a Yakuza and a corrupt politician?

That's easy: One of the best films of all time. An absolute masterpiece and without a doubt, in my personal top ten.

Shootin' The Breeze

A mysterious thin Gaijin with glasses appears in the Japanese adult video classic, "100 innocent girls study the penis #3". Alex denies any involvement.
More on this cinematic gem, here.

We chat a bit more about the Ghost in the Shell live action film, I smell disaster.
Alex also rants about how he hates Hollywood not taking credit for their remakes. The departed comes to mind.

Look at the US Infernal Affairs DVD cover:

Now to those who have seen it; where the hell is the damn chick with the gun? She does not exist. Great job marketers. Great job. Now everyone thinks its some cheesy spy movie.


Review: Bakemonogatari

Alex reviews a series centering on a high school student? Does this spell disaster? Listen and find out.

Note: Get THOR's 1080p release.It contains improved animation and art that was incomplete for the TV airing.
