Best Buy had some dvd's on sale for Black Friday. Joe picked up a bag full and Mike picked Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Joe was the only one who had been to the theater to see it. None of the rest of us goes much. Brad and Angelina are married. They have fake jobs to cover up their secret lives as international assassins. They don't tell anyone, not even their spouses. Their marriage is in one of those rocky places. We meet them talking to a counsellor. We see bits and pieces of their life's as they sneak around. Each gets an assignment to take out a guy and on that hit they cross paths without realizing who the other hitman is. The secret organizations that they work for put a hit out on the other shooter. Now they are after each other. Yi-yi-yi! There's a lots of action and explosions. At one point they blow up a whole house. What must the neighbors think. The movie is directed by Doug Limon. You might have seem some his other movies. I like Go and The Bourne Identity. I didn't like Swingers but mostly for the two main characters. Limon works in tv a lot. I haven't seen any of those shows. Lack of interest. Most of M&MS was pretty interesting. Especially for 5 bucks. I don't know if I need to buy one. I can always borrow Joe's if I need to see it again, but it was fun for the evening.
Thanks to a sale at DVDPlanet Sperhauk picked up a copy of the Kekko Kamen Live 4 disc set. It's a Japanese film series based on a Go Nagi Manga. It was also made into some Anime. Kekko Kamen is a super hero that doesn't wear any underwear. There's nothing to wear it under, her costume is that head covering and scarf. Oh, and those boots. Maybe she wears socks. That would be sensible. There's some reason behind the costume but I can't imagine caring. The box has the 4 films made in 2004, there are 6 other live action movies, three from the early 90's and three from 2007. In this series we follow the trials and tribulations of the young ladies at a school for tv announcers. The staff likes to hand out some weird punishments in a special cage down in the basement of the rather cool school building. You can see a bit of it here in this trailer at YouTube. Watch out there's many naked breasts there. More pictures here. More of that nudity. The girls are cute and that helps because there isn't much good to report on the movie. There isn't much story or such. Most of the action follows around a gal who isn't doing that well at the school. She's the first to be punished. She's tied to a merry go round horse in her underwear and smacked with a riding crop. Soon Kekko shows up and knocks all the teacher's out. The mysterious boss watches on close circuit tv and laments the return of Kekko into his naughty life. She ruined his other school with her naked girl savin'. It's a short movie but unusual. Not for most. Hopefully the rest of the series will be as fun. And it was fun some of the time, childish at others, and unbelievable at others. The good guys do win and Kekko is pretty cute. Not our usual fare and we're all the better for it.
