I've got short reviews on Mission Kashmir and Tears of the Black Tiger. Oddly, these are both musicals. The main event is Wesley's Mysterious File.

Apparently, gangster comedies were the big thing in South Korea last year. I'm adding My Boss, My Hero to Kick the Moon and My Wife is a Gangster. Once I get Hi Dharma I'll have a complete set.

There's a boatload of new capsule reviews. I went to the video store the other day, which I haven't done in a while so I've filled in a few holes from last fall. Then, of course, there were the new releases for the weekend.

No full metal reviews today, just The Bourne Identity and Windtalkers.

I watched Versus the other night, with my hubby. Here's what he had to say about it:

Japanese zombie gangster flick. Pretty sure that 99.9% of the budget was squibs, fake blood and zombie prosthetics. Oh, and leather goods. Definitely the movie Kurasawa would have made, if he was psychotic.

I give it the full treatment.

Today's entry is the drama Princess-D.

This week I have the blaxploitation spoof Undercover Brother and the action extravaganza 2000 AD.

I've finally added credits and pics to Avalon.

Ummm... It's only been three weeks since I posted an update. I will try to do better. Problem is watching the movie is easy, writing the review is hard.

This week I have The Master, Enigma, and, of course, Episode II.

Well, Spider-Man finally opened. Was it all I dreamed? However, that is not the main review of the week. That goes to The Emperor's New Clothes. See what I thought.

We are well into the second quarter of 2002 so I have archived the first quarter.

By the way, I don't expect to post anything next weekend as I have to finish my project.

Sorry I didn't post last week. I had a big homework project and I had to see The Scorpion King, of course. I saw Rain in Talk Cinema and I have a little to say about it. I also have some notes on the Second Time Around with Ekin Cheng and Cecilia Cheung. The major review is of an oldy but a goody, Jet Li's Hitman.

I've got another slogan :

  • For the movies that have come and gone, somewhere!

Last weekend I saw the Korean epic, Musa so I have a review and some screen captures I think are pretty good. Also, I didn't exactly see the French film, Time Out.

We here at NotComingSoon.com are trying to come up with a slogan. So far we have:

  • For the movies that are foreign, obscure, big-screen and kick-ass, ALL at the SAME TIME!
  • Not Coming Soon to a theater near you, you culturally imperialist Yankee dog!
  • Reviewing globally since the last millenium

Obviously, these aren't quite right. If you have a better suggestion, please email me at NCS@NotComingSoon.com or use this form.

Today, I have reviews of the Korean blockbuster JSA and the Hong Kong gender bending comedy Beauty and the Breast. Also, I fixed The Legend of Zu so that clicking on Sky King or Enigma doesn't bring up a picture from Jakarta.
