50. Highlander: The Final Dimension
The rainy weather means more inside time and more games and movies Plus a lot of Library Videos came off of hold yesterday and were picked up.
43. Samurai Champloo - Volume 1
44. Zatoichi(The Blind Swordsman) Episode 2 - The Tales of Zatoichi Continues (Zoku Zatoichi Monogatari)
More about the Zatoichi series (from back cover): With 26 film sequels and upwards of 100 TV episodes. Shintaro Katsu is the legendary Zatoichi! He's a low ranking blind masseur who lives by the Yakuza code and answers his foes with a deadly cane sword. By far, one of Japanese cinema's most time-honored screen personas. Zatoichi is, to this day, the ultimate anti-hero and champion of the common man
45. Karas: The Prophecy
46. Dora-Heita (A library Loan)
More about Dora-Heita (from back cover): Koheita (Koji Yakusho) is a samurai with such a reputation for debauchery that his nickname is "Dora-Heita" (Alley Cat), so his appointment as magistrate of the most corrupt township in all of law... But little does everyone knwo that it's all a carefully constructed front to outwit the criminals and outfight the righteous samurai who think he's too disgraceful to live!

Labels: Angelina Jolie
Did some camping this weekend but was also able to fit in a few movies.
22. Diary of a Mad Black Woman (play) - DVD
23. Madea's Family Reunion - DVD
24. Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Library Loan)
I've mentioned before that I get a lot of videos/dvds from the library. I usually place the videos on hold online and then the County of LA mails out a notice that it arrives. The holds are free and you get to keep the movie for 7 days. So even if you are a family on a budget, there are always options. Try it.
21. Meet the Browns
Labels: Tyler Perry
18. Sansho The Bailiff
19. Chunhyang (Library)
20. Meet the Browns (play) - DVD
14. The President's Last Bang (County of Los Angeles Public Library)
From the back cover of The President's Last Bang:
A "wildly funny whirlwind of anarchy, violence and sex" (New York Magazine), The President's Last Bang depicts the brutal reality and ensuing chaos of a political coup with unapologetic frankness, unexpected humor and unrelieved intensity. Imaginatively recreating the 1979 assassination of South Korean President Park Chung-hee, writer-director Im Sang-soo dares to make complex, realistically neurotic hcharacters out of the most polarizing figures in modern Korean political history....
(skip a bunch of stuff)
Sang-soo's coolly dynamic camera reveals the most scandalous 24 hours in twentieth century Korean memory with fluid grace and uncommon skill, and his cast anchors The President's Last Bang's remarkable mix of expose, tragedy and farce with keenly observed characterizations. It is contemporary Asian cinema at its most courageous, audacious and insightful.
15. Sansho The Bailiff - County of Los Angeles Public Library
16. Why Did I Get Married (play) - DVD
17. Madea Goes to Jail (play) - DVD
