About Author

Long time film lover and occasional writer. I watch anything and everything though I have massive love for the works of Shunji Iwai, Jackie Chan, Johnnie To, and Kinji Fukasaku. POP! POP!


  1. Story of Ricky easily has my 10 favourite prison scenes in general, but how to choose one???? Ok, I got it. When the baddies are tormenting the old guy with the toy train, Ricky steps in and shows just how a casual badass he is, by tripping one of the baddies resulting in mangled fingers and an eye sight problem.

    I laughed when I first saw it on the 50th generation bootleg tape with barely any colour left, I got my hands on, and I have kept on laughing the many times I’ve watched it on that tape and later on when I finally got it on proper releases.

  2. Story of Ricky when the one guy starts extending all his limbs and gets disfigured!
    Prison on Fire is also an excellent movie, but no single scene stands out to me.
