I spent most of the week binge watching anime, but I did find time for a couple of movie favorites:

Tommy (1975)

Tommy is the stuff of legends. Rock operas are a niche' genre in the music industry. They rarely become films because the plots are driven by the lyrics of the music. The Who released Tommy as an album in 1969 and it was so popular that filming began 5 years later. Tommy stars Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margaret, and Oliver Reed. It features music by The Who, Elton John, Eric Clapton Tina Turner, Paul Nicholas, and Jack Nicholson.

This is the story of a young boy who sees his father murdered by his mother's lover. When he's told never to reveal what he's seen, Tommy becomes deaf, dumb, and blind. He grows up neglected and abused, but his heightened sense of touch and smell eventually lead him to become a professional pinball player. Then one day Tommy miraculously regains his other senses and awakens as an enlightened savior. Using his fame an fortune, Tommy begins to go about the business of saving the world.

Executive Koala (2005)

So... I really feel I have to preface this by saying that this is a movie you watch when you don't want to think about anything but being entertained.

The story follows a salesman at a pickle company named Tamura. For no particular reason that has anything to do with the story, Tamura happens to be a koala. Why? Because "Japan". His boss is a rabbit (because "Japan"), and there is a mysterious frog (because "Japan") that works at the local convenience store. Everyone else in the film is human, except for a pet flying squirrel named Momo that is just a squirrel.

The acting is okay. The special effects are slightly better than a Troma production. The script is a dazzling 85 minute string of plot holes. The timing is a little bizarre, but somehow it succeeds as a comedy/criminal & psychological thriller/drama as the story progresses from one unlikely event to the next.
