Well…. it’s finally the end of November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Naturally our “Family Tradition” continues, and we’ll be off for the next couple of days to bask in the warmth and love of Carolyn’s Sister’s family again and share with them the blessings of the season… along with all the yummy food to be had too of course.
Given that, I’ll be away from the ol’ Litterbox till Saturday, but this wee Catgirl still wanted to wish all my Gentle Visitors, blogging friends, and casual lurkers alike a wonderful Holiday and, until next time we meet, a hearty “Meow, meow for now!”
Yep… November has continued to chug along at it’s busy, busy pace keeping me occupied with responsibilities but… every once in a while… I still do manage to shake all of those things and indulge in some brain rotting movie fun to share with you all. This time out, I’ve an odd little bit of zombie apocalypse fun… Malay style. “KL Zombi”, an honest to goodness Malaysian Zombie film. 🙂
Our synopsis… well here it goes… “KL Zombie is a story of five friends who each have their own dreams and hopes of a better life in the big city. But those lofty ambitions come to a screeching halt when a deadly virus outbreak turns its inhabitants into zombies. Oblivious and bumbling pizza delivery boy/hero Nipis has to put his life on the line in order to save himself and his friends from being infected by the virus.”
I’ve had this disc for a few weeks now, but it’s taken a bit for me to get around to being able to give it a proper watch. Thankfully, with Thanksgiving a few days away, Carolyn and I finally found the time for a proper “Movie Nite” snuggle on Sunday…. and some brain eating zombies (Just gotta have those…. 😉 ). So just how was the resulting evening entertainment wise? Guess all you curious Gentle Visitors will have to “Read On” to find out… 🙂
Psst! This way for more!
Yay!! A day off at last!! So how about a new Review for all my Gentle Visitors? Well… I’ve got one for you, and given your Favorite Catgirl’s recent cranky anti-social mood of late, I suppose it’s downright appropriate to do one for the Chilean Action comedy exploitation mash-up “Tráiganme la Cabeza de la Mujer Metralleta” or as it’s known here in the US, “Bring Me the Head of the Machinegun Woman!”.
Our synopsis reads like this: “Santiago Fernandez is an aimless young slacker in Chile who is content wasting his life away spending hours on the couch at his Mom’s apartment playing Grand Theft Auto and fantasizing about an exciting life of crime and gun fights. By night he works a dead-end job as a DJ at a club owned by ruthless Argentinian gangster boss Che Longana. One evening, Santiago finds himself trapped in a bathroom stall as Longana holds a secret meeting to make known his offer of $300 million pesos for the head of Machine Gun Woman, his once ex-girlfriend now turned lethal hit-woman, who wants him dead. Discovered eavesdropping on the conversation, Santiago’s only choice to avoid being executed is to lie, claim he knows Machine Gun Woman, and offer to bring her in for the reward. Although the Gang-lord doesn’t believe his story for a moment, he is still given 24 hours to make good on his claim. It’s then that Santiago’s loser life turns into a real live action video game of its own chock filled with missions, guns, sexy women and brutal violence.”
Crazy exploitative action, 70’s Grindhouse style, with all the sexy “bad girl” action a bad movie junkie like me could want. Ooooohhhh yes!! Is our bad girl anti-heroine gonna go hog wild crazy with her personal Arsenal of Doom? Are ridiculous numbers of slimy scumbags gonna get their butts kicked? You betcha!! 😉 So… for a look at the details, all you have to do is “Read On” o’ Gentle Visitor and enjoy all the guilty pleasures of revenge cinema melodrama, South Americano style.
Psst! This way for more!
It’s… it’s…. November?… Really?… When the heck did that happen? And more importantly… how the heck did I miss it?
Bleeeeehhhh…. So darn tired… soooo darn cranky… at everybody… and nobody… all the darn time of late… and so definitely ready to get away from work and grab some well deserved “Me Time”. (Goodness how I just hate being “boss” at work sometimes….) When the heck that’ll actually happen is anybody’s guess… but I’m thinking it had better be soon. Before this “crazy cat lady” goes all postal on somebody and loses it big time. That’s never a good thing…. ’cause when this wee lady finally gets pushed to my limits it always ends in a spectacular emotional blow-out of epic proportions. Seriously. Then I’m miserable and have to apologize to somebody… sometimes several somebodies… for losing it.
But… I didn’t want my blogging friends and Gentle Visitors here at the Litterbox to think I’d forgotten you all, so consider this my way of touching base while I try yet again to rally some energy…. and scrape together some free time… to get back to things ’round here in more proper fashion.
Till then expect things to be a little sparse round here, post wise. I’ll try to get a Review or two in the next few days, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for me to actually get around to them. 😦
