    Me and my brothers started on our combined "200 films we have never watched" list last night. (basically all four of us made a list of 50 films we had personally never seen but really wanted to, with no consultation between us and not knowing who had put what, and then put them together and plugged into an excel random generator that can plug some parameters into.)

    The Tale of Zatoichi (1962) came up first. Not my choice and knew it was first in a veeeeeery long series (26 films!) but was actually pretty darn good. Surprised me. The sword-fighting melees were pretty bad/unrealistic... but apart from that cant really fault it. Really well paced as well.

    Jodie Comer is ridiculously good looking. That is my profound post for the day.

    Akim Aliu’s Account of Racism Pushes Hockey to Search Its Soul

    The article isn't available on-line, but here's a harrowing incident:

    Aliu said that after he refused to strip naked for a rookie hazing ritual (for Windsor in the OHL), a teammate retaliated by attacking him with a hockey stick in their next practice, knowing out seven of his teeth.
    Aliu wrote that the player was Steve Downie . .

    My main takeaway from that series is "WHO IS ILLUSTRATING THESE"

    There is obviously some cabal of people making images for WikiHow

    I haven't seen the original Zatoichis. He's blind in those right? Or was that just an innovation for the 2003 version?

    If you want to see another bad take on that, check out the 1989 film with Rutger Hauer as the lead. Blind Fury.

    That story has been well known for at least 10 years. Downie is a complete and total piece of shit. On and off the ice. I really hope he has changed.

    Yeh, he is blind in the original as well. Cant vouch for anything apart from the 1st film... but worth a watch.

    The
    Orlando is going to get clobbered if they open the parks and stuff up again when the Brazilians come sweeping back in with the plague. Orlando is their Mecca.
