Continuing my 80s obsession I finished off the Ghoulies flipper with Ghoulies 2 (1988). This time the ghoulies get resurrected at a carnival funhouse (same funhouse later used in Dark Ride?). Think this one is on par w/the first film with a little more humor and more camp.
Lastly another Japanese crime thriller with Takashi Ishii's Gonin 2 (1996) starring Ken Ogata as a wizened badass seeking revenge for the death of his wife at the hands of yakuza. The "gonin" in the title are 5 disenchanted women that come together after a botched jewelry store robbery and also stand in the way of the yakuza. The first half is a little slow but everything after the robbery is good stuff. Kimiko Yo is excellent as the elder (40yrs old at the time) leader of this rag-tag bunch. Dug this film.
