It’s movie night again, and tonight I am going to watch Japanese classic Battle Royale, which is different to the Hunger Games unless you’ve never seen it in which case it is identical.
This version is the funky 3 disc edition with a free comic and multiple different box covers. If you like that sort of thing. Which I do. So it is good.
In fuckbonkers future Japan, to stop people being idiots every year a class full of kids is sent to a remote island and forced to fight to the death. It is nothing like the Hunger Games. No, really it isn’t.
WHY IT IS GOOD!
It’s a bunch of kids brutally murdering each other in a variety of nasty and sometimes hilarious ways.
WHY IT IS BAD!
Everyone says The Hunger Games is the same and it isn’t. The ending is a bit naff, and the sequel is guff.
CHANCE OF FALLING ASLEEP!
6/10 because concentrating on subtitles is hard.
INTEREST FROM TWITTER!
Most people seem to think it is a good idea for me to watch it, but nobody has any funny or exciting anecdotes, not that I asked. Usually they’re very forthcoming about such things. It’s the same with sexual injuries. They’re always trying to show me the scars on their ladytwinkles.
RATING ON THE FUDGECRUMPET SCALE OF AWESOMENESS!
