Weekly What To Do: Ramen Noodles & Wheelchair Assassins

Kills on Wheels Screening
Thursday Oct 27, 9:30pm
Monica Film Center
1332 2nd Street

What I suspect that might get pick for Drafthouse or at least find it's way to the American market is the action packed lunacy of a WHEELCHAIR ASSASSIN GANG! Kills on Wheels is part of the Hungarian Film Festival and will play for one night only before possibly getting picked up by one of the independent distributors just for concept alone.

Tampopo Screenings
Starts Oct 28
Nuarte Theater

"Rediscover the joys of this hilarious “noodle western,” perhaps the most popular Japanese comedy ever released in the U.S., in this new digital restoration. Goro (Tsutomo Yamazaki), a tough noodle-loving cowboy-truck driver, stops in on his way to Tokyo at a ramen restaurant run by Tampopo (Nobuko Miyamoto, A Taxing Woman), a sweet young widow whose heart is in the right place but whose noodles are lacking. When Goro criticizes the cuisine, a brawl breaks out. Awakening on the floor of the restaurant, Goro is beseeched by Tampopo to help her save her failing business, and he chivalrously agrees."

It's dripping and it's not just what you think, it's dripping Engrish as the event's name is somehow "Wednesday Extra Hentai Friday?" Yes, it's a look at hentai...but we have the internet?

It looks like Entertainment Weekly has gotten rid of the more nerdy hero festival and gone with the more general PopFest. It's happening in direct competition of LA's Comic-Con with big names and fun panels; including one for CW's super hero shows.
