FOTEP Movie Reviews



Battle Royale (2000)

A friend of mine turned me onto this movie. Its a near-future Japanese drama with English subtitles.

Before there was The Hunger Games, there was Battle Royale

Under the Battle Royale act, a group of ninth-graders are captured and released on an island with a duffel bag of random items including a weapon. The only rule is: in the next three days, to kill their classmates and win the battle royale.

Each student is fitted with an exploding collar (ala Running Man) and is forced onto progressively smaller sections of the island, ratcheting up the suspense as one by one the students are killed and as a winner is closer to being selected.

The sequel is nearly as good and also worth a watch.

IMDB Score: 7.7/10
Amazon Score: 4.5/5

Bless the Beasts & Children (1971)

Taken from a required-reading book of the same name, this movie is about The Bedwetters of Box Canyon Boys Camp. The Bedwetters, the last-place cabin in camp competitions, are a group of misfits lead by Cotton (Barry Robins) and nominally Teft (Bill Mumy).

After a distressing outing to a range where people pay to shoot buffalo, the boys decide to run away from camp and free them. This starts the adventure of their lives.

IMDB Score: 6.7/10
Amazon Score: 4.5/5
