Speaking of Korean monster movies, here's a rarity---the 1985 North Korean kaiju flick PULGASARI, in living color with mid-'80's electronic score:

Hmmm--the few communists I know might like this one! A monster that serves the people and is cool with being part of a rural socialist collective, as long as it can chomp up all the iron it can get its claws on!

Happy New Year, one and all! Just celebrated a birthday last week, and finished watching all three of a young Bruce Lee's early films--THE KID, AN ORPHAN'S TRAGEDY, and THE GUIDING LIGHT---all pretty decent films, and it was nice to see some HK films made before 1965 for a change. Also saw the recent Korean drama MOTHER, which was very good, even with its devastating ending. Finally got ANGEL OF KICKBOXER, a really good old-school Yukari Oshima fighting flick (I still don't have enough of her films,dang it). Also got Jackie Chan's THE SHINJUKU INCIDENT, CITY OF VIOLENCE, and am still awaiting Korean film-noir THE CHASER, which can also be seen here:

Got a batch of old-school kung-fu flicks, amongst them one called KILLER ELEPHANTS, which seems to be a Thai flick. This was interesting to see because other than BORN TO FIGHT, I've rarely seen any Thai kung-fu flicks from the '70's, and haven't finished watching it yet, but it does feature a scene where some thugs are stymied by elephants blocking their attempts to get away on a dusty road.

THE HEADHUNTER---Thought I'd seen all of Chow Yun Fat's classics from the '80's, but I found this one on one of my cheap dollar store 2 movies-slapped-on one-DVD purchases. Chow plays an ex-Vietnam veteran-turned-hired killer who's willing to off anybody for a price,no questions asked. He winds up getting acquainted with the niece of one of his employers, a determined reporter played by a young Rosamund Kwan---who happens to be investigating a case her uncle in involved knee deep in. A tense, downbeat drama with a naturally unhappy ending,of course--it's pretty good and worth tracking down.

PULGASARI was released on VHS by ADV and in recent years has had a couple of screenings in the US and Canada. The film is infamous for being directly supervised by Kim Jong-Il and directed under duress by South Korean filmmaker Shin Sang-ok, who had been kidnapped by North Korean forces.

I'm hoping SECTOR 7 will be more along the lines of THE HOST and actually be good.
