Love Hermeto Pasocal. The first track definitely has a bit of an Ennio Morricone vibe.

Frank Zappa -- Cosmik Debris

"Look here brotha, who you jivin' with that cosmik debris?"

Django Unchained 7.62836/10  -- Entertaining.  I like that Tarantino actually made his spaghetti western, after Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds which were obviously spaghetti westerns taken out of the west.  Made me nostalgic for spaghetti westerns and reminded me of this board.  The Franco Nero cameo was aimed at the .01% of the population that we represent.  Hooray for us!

Hallucinogen - In Dub 8/10   Top track - Gamma Goblins (It's Turtles All the Way Down Mix)

Shpongle - Are You Shpongled? 9/10 Top Track - Divine Moments of Truth

Been giving electronic music a chance lately, on account of going to some bass-heavy dubstep "rave" a few weeks ago that I thoroughly enjoyed.  Although, that kind of music, I've found you can really only appreciate on the proper sound system in the proper frame of mind.  But digging a little into the genre a little i've found some stuff i can really get into.  Apparently, the key to electronic music is that they take any genre, and if they make it actually sound good/musical/something-you'd-actually-listen-to-at-home-and-not-at-a-party they throw a "psy" in front of it.  Psydub, psytrance, psybient.... It's nothing i've really looked into before but 'tis expanding my horizons.

Kick-Ass 8/10

Man my brother got back in town and my mom decided we needed to go to the movies as a family.  This looked dumb as hell but it was actually just really entertaining.  Off-beat humor juxtaposed with just shocking, over-the-top violence.  No substance at all but there's no substance in anything nowadays, so what the hell.

Just saw this not long ago.  I thought it was very entertaining, but I sure as hell could have done without Clint's song at the end.

One thing I remember thinking about this movie is the way the characterization and themes seems to come off as some kind of inverse of "Unforgiven."  In Unforgiven, we see Munny begin from a character claiming to be completely repentant, absolved, and eventually he recesses into the cold-blooded violence he spent the entire film reproving.  In Gran Torino, we see the exact opposite.  Kowalski seems to pride himself on his unavailability, justifying his coldness with what he saw in Korea.  And in the film's finale he transcends this, he makes redeems himself, makes the ultimate sacrifice for something greater than himself.  And as a martyr he can rest in peace, far different than Munny's final cry... something along the lines of "If any one of you sons-of-bitches takes a shot at me, I'll kill you and your whole family and burn your house down."

That's one thing I liked about this film, it seemed like a companion piece to Unforgiven to me... the Yin and Yang of old-man ass-kickery.

Damn, Noodles, you never cease to impress me with the quality of your productions.

This is the greatest moment of my life and I will not be a complete person until I see it four times in the theatre.

(Hopefully that will satisfy FC.)

Michael Franti -- 8/10.  This guy put on a great show, really pumped up the crowd on a Tuesday night..  I really dig his vibe and his music and his message.  He's like Curtis Mayfield meets Peter Tosh.

Yeah, the rastas really like those spaghettis. There was even one group or artist going by the name Clint Eastwood some time back, IMS.

The one problem with The Harder They Come is having to listen to the title track again and again. That's why, when a reggae movie is indicated, I always reach for Rockers. Lots of artists in that, so there's no time to repeat anything. The story's not too bad either. Hmmm, seems I remember hearing about a Rockers Blu-ray. I better go check on that . . . .

Yeah they kind of overdo the main theme.

481 pages, god damn.  I've been off this board too long.

The Harder They Come, 6.5/10.  Mediocre but entertained me.  It would be a five but I give plus one for the soundtrack, which is some real good stuff, and another .5 for the scene in the middle where they are all sitting in a theatre watching the machine gun scene in Django!  That took me by surprise, and then they flashed back to it at the finale.
