… is the film I wasn’t aware I had been waiting for all my life. I have no qualms with Diablo Cody because this is my first exposure to her. I have no problem with Megan Fox because she is, in fact, super attractive. My movie going experi
I covered one other Pink Eiga film a while back called Sexy Battle Girls – a fun, over the top action movie/soft-core porn that was, as expected, more porn than action. 2003’s A Lonely Cow Weeps at Dawn is a major departure form the actio
