This time last week I was at the Terracotta Far East Film Festival where I was going to experience the awesomeness that is The Snow White Murder Case and other titles.I’ve got those reviews in the pipe-line and they are due next week.

Alas, the weather isn’t as good but I’ll be indoors for most of the day.

I also posted about a film festival happening in Dallas where one can watch some cool looking East Asian films!

Under the leadership of Commander Charles, these dames use their special “Women Tornado” to beat the crap out of monsters. The only problem is that they need to be together to use their special power and with love lives, shopping and personal things going on… Getting their schedules to synch might be a problem…
