    Bad Boy Bubby

    Bad Boy Bubby (Nicholas Hope) is a 35-year-old manchild, confined his whole life by his domineering mother--who uses him for sex--to a two-room tenement apartment. She has convinced Bubby that the air outside is poisonous, donning a gas mask every time she leaves

    Fantastic choices my friend...Kudos for your taste in movies man...

    Let me add Kids (story about teenagers in the mid-90s) and Battle Royale (children deserted on an island, forced to hunt and kill one another; literally banned from publication in the US).

    I love Ichi and Audition.. Have you seen Mikke's contribution to Masters of Horror? It was the only one that Showtime wouldn't air... Worth checking out if you like his other stuff...

    No, I've heard about it though. Is it available on DVD? It's funny I'm not normally into horror or violent features, not against them, they're just not my thing. A friend recommended Audition and I just instantly enjoyed Miike's style. I've watched a few of the films of the Japanese new wave horror directors but none have grabbed me the way Miike's over the top style has. I also have Ley Lines and Fudoh on DVD. The problem is that none of these titles seem available for rent here in town, so I'm usually "forced" to buy them (I know, I know, I really need to join netflix)

    You're just saying that because you know our tastes are so similar :ha:

    Have you updated your DVD Afficianado page since they changed the site? I thought they deleted everything... I was pretty pissed, it took a surprisingly long time to frickin' enter all of those damn titles. I'm really not too crazy about the "improved" site.

    lol Miike's name used to drive me nuts. I never knew how to pronouce it, so it was always awkward attempting to discuss his films or trying to inquire about their availability at a store. It wasn't until I purchased Ichi the Killer on DVD which had a little featurette on it that I learned I had been indeed pronouncing it wrong all along. I think he should change his name to Mike Rooker... Rooker doesn't seem to be using it much these days.

    Um...there wasn't one. It just appeared that way to the military dad.
    Later, he makes a move on Spacey in the garage, showing us that all his homophobia was just a cover for his own homosexuality, and why his wife is virtually lifeless.

    I thought that was a very important scene for the storyline....the son realises that he has a chance to escape his father's iron-fisted rule, and admits to being a gay gigolo to do so, which of course wasn't true.

    That was the film that killed Bob Dole. The idiot went campaigning for president on the "Stop Senseless, Gratuitous Hollywood Violence!" platform, and used this movie as his effigy.
    Guess what? The topic of the film is the negative effects of senseless, gratuitous Hollywood violence!
    Dole showed the world what an idiot he was by unwittingly bashing an ally. Repeatedly.
