HKFlix.com has a new edition of Battle Royale in stock, which may be of interest to — well, it’s of interest to me. I’ve wanted to see this for a while. The plot is simple; a few dozen Japanese teenagers, all from the same high school class, are put on an island. Each one gets a weapon. Last one off wins. Refuse to fight and you die.
Yeah, I know. And everyone says “Oh, Lord of the Flies.” But I also hear a subcurrent of Ender’s Game, and I really enjoyed Series 7. So, yeah, I’m interested in this. And I’ve never been one to shy away from the lurid.
Oh, hm, there’s a movie trilogy. OK, next post for that.
