I stand corrected. Sorry for being overly hasty in judging you - it's just that I've had some bad experiences with cheetahs.
Anyhow, I'd really like some comments as to how you liked the film, Bone Tomahawk that is.

Thanks Monty. I now feel assured that I'm not a "cheater" for posting here when I get to see things early - and I would have grabbed that first check even if not posting about it here, so it wouldn't be available for someone else anyway. I've also been posting in the ongoing obscure challenge, where I'm planning on stopping when I reach 100 (probably in a few days). But I'd thought I'd continue posting here, since the first checks come around less often. Now I will.

I usually post a short sentence about how I liked a film, and I realize now that Bone Tomahawk was an exception. I think that was because I didn't quite know whether I liked it. I watched it to consider it for a horror film festival - I mean, Kurt Russell and cannibals in the wild west, that sounds awesome! Sounds like a John Carpenter movie! But then it turned out to be something completely different. A few men, including Kurt Russell, Matthew Fox and Patrick Wilson, spend most of the movie wandering the desert. Slowly. With lots of talking. But there are indeed cannibals, and they are terrifying. And I enjoyed the calmer parts as well, I was just initially disappointed that it wouldn't be the perfect horror festival film I had imagined.

12. Inner Demon (2014)

Australian horror, the second film in a trilogy that I want to explore. Sort of a home invasion movie, but then suddenly more like Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and then something else entirely.

Sounds like a great western though. And a return to form for Kurt Russell as well, I gather.

13. Last Girl Standing (2015)

What happens to the final girl after the movie is done? In this movie, she is very traumatized, sees the killer everywhere although he is supposed to be dead. A good idea for a movie, but it ends up being a bit repetitive once the action gets going.

I'm working on these two lists:

https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/kine ... ort=checks
https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/japa ... ort=checks

I just sort them by checks and watch the bottom films. For the Kinejun list I have everything available with Eng subs either on my watchlist or owned.

I'm only watching three films a day so it's not that bad really.

Also if you're too lazy to update the first post just setup the challenger script and run it whenever there's new posts.

I see, that's a pretty low number - I'm sure you can do better. Anyway, congrats on getting Double Suicide at Nishijin checked on the very day of its release. I like your aggressiveness.

As for this challenge, I guess you've noticed that I've sort of semi-retired from it (my last update scorewise was last November) so if you and the other guys are interested in keeping track that automated script of yours sure would be handy. How do I go about setting it up? Seems like a lot of work...

My rating system is weird. I barely comprehend it myself. When I start watching a movie I give it a 7, like automatically every film is a 7. Because that to me means average. Then I let the film influence it. If it didn't make me feel anything negative about it well I can't give it less than 7 because less than 7 means less than average so it doesn't fit my rating system and if it didn't really WOW me either then the rating is a 7. Average. Nothing more, nothing less. Just average.

edit: I should add that since I give every film a 7 the rating lives through the film, going up and down.

Thanks for the explanation. I am, however, weary of installing new stuff on my rig - call me paranoid but that's just the way I roll.

That's why it's open source and free software that guarantees the four basic freedoms one of which is the "freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish".

3. The First Emperor (Tan Dun, Metropolitan Opera Live, 2007)
World premiere of opera by Tan Dun (or Dun Tan), who wrote scores for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and other films. With Plácido Domingo in the title role of the emperor who began the Great Wall. Wonderful mix of Chinese and Western instruments (composer conducting), and a powerful ending. Production by Yimou Zhang (whatever that means).
:run: STILL the Gaffer!

33. Rokyoku komori-uta AKA Game of Chance (1965)

I'm also tempted to include Yagyû renyasai: hidentsuki kageshô (1956), as the sole other checker has zero checks on the Kinema Junpo list + zero checks on the Galloway list and yet he has supposedly seen this ultra-obscure samurai film?

I'm watching J films until new year because I'm working on a few lists. Also I just took a 9 month long break from movies where I only watched Ida during that time so I need to catch up and I think I can watch a few J films before watching some other stuff :p

54. Scoutman (2000, Masato Ishioka)

First check on the Donald Richie list which has some really interesting films. Falls in the same genre as Bounce KO Gals (1997) and Love & Pop (1998). The latter is the better film of the two with some interesting camera work. Although while these two films are about teen girls dating older men for money, and while Scoutman also has that, Scoutman is more about guys scouting for young girls on the street to do Adult Video. Also Scoutman has a lot more breasts.
