Sit down, my friends, I’m going to tell you a story about The Future. 2008 is just around the corner, and there’s a lot of movies that will be coming out, not just in North America, but all across the world. I’m very excited about some of these films. But today, this morning, I found a movie that I’m more excited about than any other film. This movie is truly the definition of that overused marketing term. “instant cult classic”.
I give you the trailer for Japan’s latest affront to taste, Machine Girl. I haven’t seen this much blood and gore in a movie trailer. Ever. Arms lopped off, heads severed, faces peeled away to reveal sinew and bone. Saucy stuff, indeed. I’m not thinking anyone is going to say this is the most original movie; the machine gun/chainsaw arm is an explicit call to Evil Dead/Planet Terror. But, hot schoolgirl amputee with a gatling gun arm! Finger food, throwing stars, flying guillotines, drill bras and stumps! Just watch the damn trailer, and remember, when you hear about this whacked out noise from your friends, Frankie already showed ya.
This weekend in Richland Township, Pennsylvania, 2 women dressed as ninjas held up a gas station by pointing a samurai sword at the clerk. Early Saturday morning, the suspects bound the female clerk with duct tape while held at swordpoint, and put her in a restroom. The security tape shows one of the women stealing cash from the register, then finding the key to a bottom safe and cleaning out the rolled coins. The ninja then attempted to open the top safe but, after failing that, the two girls then filled their bag with scratch-n-wins and cigarettes.
It’s really surprising to me that Pennsylvania has such a ninja problem, as less than three percent of the population is of asian decent. Obviously it’s not exactly necessary to be asian to be a ninja, but it’s certainly more common. As things stand though, these were very poor ninjas, getting caught on camera, operating in the daylight, and failing to get into the primary safe are all big mistakes. Hopefully their sensei sees this on the news and chastizes the errant students.
