Hollywood loves nothing more to go back to the well of nostalgia which they believe to be safe. No one ever seems to notice when that well has been poisoned by time or that leaky toxic waste barrel containing the body of the executive who greenlit Batman and Robin.

So with all the fraudulent sequels being produced these days we felt it was worth revisiting a seemingly older one in Return to Oz. Instead of being a terrible sequel, it turns out to be an attempt to be more true to the books. This probably doomed it from the get go when audiences were expecting musical numbers rather than creepy men skating around on all fours. Read more>>

Forty-Nine year old Tadashi Usami was found dead in an empty swimming pool around six-twenty A.M. on Thursday Morning. His body was found face down in the pool of a residential neighborhood. Police believe that Usami was on his way home to his hotel when he stumbled into the back yard believing this was his home. Having been drinking for most of the evening with a colleague near JR Ebisu station, Usami being extremely intoxicated was unable to tell the difference between this house and his hotel. Alcohol is believed to be the main factor. Foul play is not suspected.
