"Battle Royale"

I love stumbling upon geeky, cult-classics; movies that are well known to the geek culture scene, but probably pretty obscure to the population as a whole. A few weeks ago I was reading reviews (mostly negative) about the new movie "Divergent." It was being compared to "The Hunger Games" a lot, but there were also references to "Battle Royale." Hmmmm. I had never heard of that one. I saw that it was available on demand on Netflix, so I added it. Last night Kitty and I sat down to watch it. Wow. The Japanese out-Hunger-Gamed "The Hunger Game" about 10 years earlier. It's a wonderfully violent guilty pleasure.
