On a related note, where has the AMG forum gone? I used to check the yearly top album threads a lot to find some new albums to check out.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 Foreign Language Film Countdown

Pretty sure I've seen six of the one-pointers.

Audition was the first Miike I saw. I wasn't a huge fan back then, but I think it deserves a rewatch, to be honest. The viewing of The Way of the...

The Werewolf and the Yeti? I think it's pretty decent and I've seen it like half a dozen times. It's probably the best Naschy I've seen (surprisingly, none of them have been abysmal).

Re: Lets Talk Football

And in the shadow of the dramatic events, let's not forget that Finland won their first-ever appearance in any major football tournament. Perhaps not very convincingly, but still. Yay, us :)

I'm well-known for my strong dislike towards Scream, It's a prime example of everything that's wrong in American horror. And it's not meta enough to realize it's just another stinking teen horror.

I believe it's a quite common opinion that those bombs saved lives. Not everyone agrees, of course, but many believe that the traditional war against Japan would have caused way more casualties.
