This is old monster gold if you ask me. Good movie for viewing on say mushrooms in a dark room. Or whatever you watch movies on funny I say that but cannot do anything I intend to on psychedelics these days.

The War of the Gargantuas (1966)
Original title: Furankenshutain no kaijû: Sanda tai Gaira

Apparently Brad Pitt said at the 2012 Academy Awards this was the first film he ever saw if you needed to know no but trivia I just stumbled upon finding these lines:

Akemi Togawa: They don't seem to be afraid of Gaira.

Dr. Paul Stewart: Ah, they're young; young people don't have too much fear... It's strange, you know. Whenever there's a strong evil force around, youth seems to blossom. Like when the Nazi's captured Paris. All of the night clubs and theaters were filled with young people.

Akemi Togawa: Aren't we guilty of doing the same thing?

Dr. Paul Stewart: I don't feel guilt; I don't think they do either...

Saints and Soilders (2003) WW2 Based Movie. It was free to watch on YouTube so I gave it a go. I honestly thought it was just going to be a low budget WW2 movie, but it turned out to have a great story and great fight scenes. I recommend it to anyone who loves WW2 movies.

Difficult to find any new movie that can hold my attention.Almost all movies of Kim Kee Duk are genial(especially Moebius),Chen Wuk Park-those koreans are mad."I saw the devil",Gaspar Noe,Fatih Akim,Oliver Stone,Milosh Forman,Kopola,Konchalowski,Almodovar.....a lot of great artist indeed...Those spanish-"The platform" remember likes me a lot.From serials-"Black mirror" ofcourse,first seasons of "Westworld".......So much great movies.So much is done,but i believe that human imagination got no limits....I like good movies.Always waits about something new and scattering.....

Fear and Loathing in Aspen (2021)

Based on a true story, this film attempts to recreate the events surrounding Hunter's campaign for sheriff of some small town out in the middle of nowhere. The guy who plays Hunter does a good job. It's a lower key, less psychedelic Hunter. We don't see him tripping balls and freaking out every three minutes. This actor, whoever he is, couldn't have done Depp's Hunter and Depp couldn't have done his.

Cheryl Hines - Cheryl David from Curb Your Enthusiasm - plays Hunter's conservative counterpart. I don't know who's dick she sucked to become a professional actor. Probably Larry. What I do know is: she couldn't act her way out of a paper cum dumpster.

The film reminds me of the college genre in America. Films like Animal House or Revenge of the Nerds... Sometimes they cut away to a nice montage with some narration from Hunter's writing and I feel it, but then it just descends back into mediocre dramatization. Hunter versus the machine. Blah, blah, blah.

I don't like Hunter that much. I read Vegas and Campaign Trail and Lono. I appreciate his uniqueness, but I disagree with his politics. I'm tired of being preached at by films and it's sad to see Hunter in that light. I'm not a huge fan. I have gravitated away from that mentality, but I respect him as an artist.

This film isn't worthy of Hunter.

I stopped it half way through.

Where the Buffalo Roam (with Bill Murray playing Hunter) is a much better film and that is really saying something.

If this was a student film, I'd give it a decent grade... but it's not.

2/10

I recommend also watching: The Rum Diary, with Depp again as Hunter's protagonist.

Read: The Curse of Lono. It's a short book. Less than 100 pages, if I remember correctly. It's classic HST, though. I really enjoyed it. If I adapted one of his books into a film, it would be Lono.


There was no shortage of free liquor for the press, because all hustlers crave publicity. No occasion was too small for them to give what they called a “press party” in its honor. Each time Woolworths or the Chase Manhattan Bank opened a new branch, they celebrated with an orgy of rum . . . In a good week we would hit three parties and average three or four bottles for each half hour of painful socializing. It was a good feeling to have a stock of rum that would never run out, but after a while I could no longer stand even a few minutes at each party, and I had to give it up.
