Debt to Cinema 049: Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky

As someone who loves comedic gore, especially Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson’s offerings, all I needed was a gentle reminder from Edgar Wright on Twitter to finally scratch this Hong Kong classic off my list. Its everything you want and then tons more than you’d ever expect. If you’ve ever laughed out loud at the sight of blood I’m sure you’ll love this manga adaptation just like me #IdBuyThatForADollar

Debt to Cinema 039: The Red Violin

What the world needs now, is love, sweet love, its the only thing there’s just too little of – especially for Classical music. That’s not the topic exactly, but it is instrumental in the main character’s creation. This is the second sabbatical episode and our first attempt at a new intro. Even if it sucks, hopefully us trying something new can get you to share what you thought.

Debt to Cinema 036: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Last week my romance pick wasn’t quite my tempo, and this week Steve’s isn’t his. Perhaps we should start making selections for one another? For some reason, Ang Lee’s acclaimed Chinese martial arts/tragic love story, didn’t strike his fancy, but it leads to an interesting discussion on public perception of classics and the struggle of swimming against the tide of universal acclaim.
