No :) It’s entirely up to you if you read one or two books. Some of us are fast readers so might be able to read two in a month. If you’re a slower reader like me, you can read just one.

Battle Royale (2000)

External image

Finished this earlier this morning, had to stop it so I could leave to TDKR.

This film is known to be one of Tarentino’s favorite films, it’s excellent in action and adventure, with the foreign thriller (and let’s face it some of the English subtitles are hilarious)

This Japanese film is where a class of children are brought from their communities to a deserted island where the government puts restrictions and gives them necessities to survive and weapons to kill– 3 days, necklaces that trace if they’re dead or alive and GPS, and only one survivor.

Seeing innonence completely lost and go mental– but task of government.

I enjoyed it due to it’s vibes of 1984  ideologies and the darkness of the social situation. There are lessons to be learned.

Spam on it’s way, and looking forward to seeing Battle Royale 2 sometime soon!
