Lowlife Love Child



This week we take another trip to Serbia and learn how to bowl like a professional. First up we thumb a ride in the most distinctive bus in Europe, see some snuff up close, and witness The Life and Death of a Porno Gang. Then we take a break to find zen in an abduction scheme before the league semifinals with The Big Lebowski. One endlessly quotable film and one about how absolutely awful life is. Who thought we'd find so much in a Serbian shock film or the Coens would make us so damn depressed? Might have that reversed.

Amphibian Blackjack A-Go-Go

This week we take our chances going against ninjas, the mob, and an interestingly themed New York gang. First we take a look back at the wild days of Los Vegas with Casino, the only movie where De Niro doesn't play a good Catholic boy. Pesci is still Pesci, as that holds the Universe together. Next we take a tour of NYC's sewer system with a group of Muppets and a De Niro impersonator to learn the secret arts of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Finally we emerge into gloriously campy beacon of hope that is the Village People who are THE Sound of the 80s... because they Can't Stop the Music.
All that and a Mystery Guest, Tyler weeps, Craig is forced to take a hard look at his life, Kevin tries to make many parable comparisons, and Dave realizes he is the most secure in his sexuality.

Japavalanche

To conclude Japanuary we dive into four films curated by Nathan (who was unable to join us due to Ninjas). First up is Noburo Ando's Chronicle of Escape and Sex (aka Account of Filthy Escape into Sex aka the greatest title we have ever seen) a true account of lead actor Ando's month long run from authorities and the women who comforted him. Okinawa Yakuza War, also inspired by a true crime event, finally brings the great Sonny Chiba to RotP. Fires on the Plain shoves our faces into the horrors of war. Finally Takashi Miike arrives on scene, you just can't have Japanuary without him, and spins another tale from the files of Noburo Ando, one we assume must be heavily fictionalized or else the force ghosts have a lot to answer to, in Deadly Outlaw Rekka

New Tokyo, Same Old T



The penultimate week of Japanuary 2019. First, Tyler proves an old pervert can not change his crusty tighty whities with the in name only sequel New Tokyo Decadence: The Slave. The 2007 softcore Japanese BDSM film where a boring girl meets a boring master. It's not at all what you think it is... it's much much less. Then Craig bring the brilliant ray of sunshine that is Beat Kitano into our lives with Boiling Point. Some guys, some baseball, some violence, and Kitano. What more could anyone possibly need?
Also we learn new things about Kevin's romantic history and Dave remains comparably calm about everything.

Mesmer in the River



Japanuary continues with two solid contenders. Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Cure takes a look at hypnosis, murder, and a very pointed social commentary that escaped at least one of us. Then we take a look at our second Lone Wolf and Cub film with the fifth entry in the series in a lazy attempt to trigger Kevin's film sequence compulsive disorder, Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in the Land of the Demons. Also Dave enjoys porn free breathing room, Craig tries to swallow his pain, and Tyler plots deeds too unspeakable to type. All that and a whole lot of regretful name mangling.

Misshapen Sybarite



Still recovering from the internal damaged received last week, RotP barrels full steam into Japanuary. First up, Tyler doubles down on the fetish films with Tokyo Decadence, which turns out to be far more than meets the eye... because it's banned in Australia and South Korea! Then Craig unveils Horrors of Malformed Men, the underseen precursor to Toei's pinku violence series. Dave finds his mental happy place and Kevin finds a new thing to try on Tuesday date night. We apologize to his wife in advance.

OUCH Secret Satan

We bring 2018 to a horrifying conclusion in the only way we know how... gifting each other movies designed to bring the maximum trauma to the recipient. Bibleman Adventures LIVE! A Light in the Darkness starts the festivities with a side hug. Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie has unexpected consequences. Fifty Shades of Grey teaches us all an important lesson about life, love, and the privileges of being brain dead as well as filthy rich. Finally, Carry on Matron shows us the real pain and horror hidden in the English Music Hall Tradition and the insidiousness of saucy holiday postcards.
There is much weeping, whippings and gnashing of teeth... Join us, won't you?
