Movie Night - August 28th, 2010

Movie Night, with lot's of Japanese things that rocked.

Highschool of the Dead, Episodes 1-4
   Highschool students and zombie outbreak, with lots of fan service during the first episode but that tapers off thankfully. Not that i mind it, but it seemed out of the feeling of the show. Like it more than i was expecting to, and it kept getting better too as the episodes went on. Interestingly, the show aired on tv in Japan, and according to Sankaku Complex (site nsfw, possibly), the censoring was pretty heavy and at times odd, "massacred by censors" post, and "now censored everywhere" article. Also seems to be censored with black and white areas both, so there's that to keep in mind. DvD is unedited though.

Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl
   Yes, again. Mostly because some hadn't seen it, and also because it's awesome. ;)

   Also by the maker of the above. Less batshit insane, although it did have some moments, but a more complete movie with actual plot and more character development. I really, really want him to do a kaiju movie now, even though there was a good bit of that here, i can just imagine how fun it would be. ;)
