^ they are releasing them in three batches. You'll get more on April 1st.

Unfortunately, for some reason, Grave of the Fireflies is not to be included in the Netflix additions.

That's both good news and bad news. Grave of the Fireflies is one of the ones I most want to see.

My latest Last 100 Movies Seen For the First Time List Challenge is now online if anyone fancies a go.


I started on List Challenges to promote MMA, but I've posted a lot more movie lists by this point. They get more users and since I have the MMA name as my username still, it does that little bit to put the name out there to be seen. The Metal Music Archives LC account is these days in the top 100 List Makers. I am aiming to try to get it into at least the top 50 one day. 

Our most used MMA themed list remains the Trad Heavy Metal challenge with 363 users and counting. 

A miserable 17 for me. There's quite a few there I really should have seen, especially some of the older ones.

Fortunately I can get back on Netflix tonight after not having it for 8 days due to my Virgin Tivo box having an error. Had them booked in today to come and repair it and it started working again by itself last night. Hopefully it won't go wrong again!

It was only a matter of time before a major celebrity contracted it. Hopefully he will be OK, his wife too who also has it. And anyone else who gets it. Hope all you fellow MMA'ers are taking as many precautions as you can during this time and remember that thinking smart and staying calm is absolutely necessary right now.

So Batwoman is finally starting in the UK. One day before Supergirl returns with Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 1, with Part 2 now not scheduled until 8 weeks later. 

More important things to worry about in the world right now, but seriously, how hard can it be? Hope Sky/Now-TV doesn't rub further salt into the wound by expiring the episodes of the rest of the shows too quickly, otherwise Batwoman's episode is getting pirated. Don't bloody care at this point.

I finally got round to watching Lords of Chaos. I can see why the remaining members of the Black Circle didn't like it much.LOL

Even with all the creative license taken with the film, no one really comes out of it looking too positively. I don't suppose that was the point of it all, but it reinforced what I felt about it at the time - a bunch of kids playing silly games that got out of control, but who produced some aesthetically original and edgy music, albeit with somewhat questionable themes at times.

I loved the brutality of the murders and suicide, not for the sake of violence and brutality, but because of the stark contrast with the almost comicbook silliness and posing which accompanied so much of the image and "aura" created. Compare it to the splatter films which various people were watching throughout the movie (including the lawnmower scene from Brain Dead!) Yes, blood does spurt out of living bodies like that if you make holes in them with knives or guns, and those things are for keeps - the dead don't get a second chance.

The saddest thing about the killings and the posturing is that the music will always be tainted by that. Some people will be attracted to it for the danger and edginess of it - the bands with the Dead singer, or the burning church, on the album covers - and not for the sounds contained within those covers.

Anyway, I went into it with some reasonably strong preconceptions, and none of them were disproved or much altered by the movie. And I still have the Kerrang! magazine with the interview in question in it.Cool

I've seen the movie. I actually thought it was quite well done, baring in mind it's disclaimer 'based on truth and lies'. Wink

A movie List Challenge with a bit of a difference here, I'm using it as a small poll. I'd appreciate it if MMA'ers had a look.
