Ahoy, Citizens!

This week on SCC, we had our BFF Tyler on, yet again, to help us dissect our newest Second Class flick. And it should come as no surprise, that as a group, we decided to watch the highly anticipated (for us, anyway), Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance!

This movie picks up right where Samurai Cop ends, but then launches us 25 years into the present day where there is a deadly turf war going on between two Samurai gangs, because obviously. Unable to solve a string of recent killings, Frank Washington sets out to find his old partner, Joe Marshall (the Samurai Cop), in hopes that Joe can help him solve the crimes. Throw in some bizarrely futuristic settings, inexplicable music selections, and Tommy Wiseau, and apparently you've got a movie.

If you are a fan of the original Samurai Cop, you're going to want to give this episode a listen. Tyler joined us for his first viewing of Samurai Cop earlier that day, so we were all brushed up and ready to compare. We discuss the storyline of this film, why every actress they hired looks exactly the same, and why CGI blood and bruises were necessary.

You can rent in on Vimeo here! Is it worth the $8.99? Find out and listen!

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

Mary is off camera while her father takes his own life. In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
