Cat Shit One

Friday night started like any other Friday night. We downloaded a Groupon for Dhaba (a local Indian place, yum!) where we were going to meet my husbands parents for dinner and then to view the Oscar nominated short films at Film Streams, (a local art house theatre). Well it snowed this evening here in Omaha, and underneath the little snow we received, black ice. How fun!!! So after three attempts to get my little Scion XA up three different hills on the way to dinner we found ourselves doing a 360 down 60th Street and stopping inches from a car accident at the bottom of the hill. Best.Friday.Night.Ever. After avoiding the car accident, we decided to stay in the 'hood' and have a lovely dinner at Pitch Pizzeria, and then come home for a treat. Yes, a treat for my loyal readers. I am going to live blog while watching a movie my husband recently ordered off of Amazon...Cat Shit One, a CG animated movie based loosely on Desert Storm, ladies and gentleman. You can view the trailer here. Enjoy!
(Oh by the way, we will be viewing the Japanese version not the English one. Nerd style of course.)

Live blog/notes:
-The opening credits seems a lot like "Three Kings" except the bad guys are camels and the good guys are rabbits. Racist already and not even 3 minutes in.
-"Is this racist? I can't decide," husband.
-When the racist 'American' rabbits talk their tails wag. Oh Johnny Cotton Tail you are such a tease!
-Okay take two. We had to switch to the English version with the Japanese dialogue and the English subtitles due to the previous DVD menu being in Japanese and we couldn't read it. Apparently it was written in Kanji (according to my husband).
-Motofumi Kobayashi is the man who wrote the comic this is based off of...that name sounds like a delicious place I would love to eat. (racist?)
-There doesn't seem to be a Japanese word for copy. The rabbits keep saying it into their walkie talkies at the end of their sentences.
-The camels are killing hostage bunnies!
-One of the rabbits is named Perkins but his bunny friend, Botasky (sniper) calls him Packy. I am already confused. Dammit.
-Side note: these racist bunnies are hella cute.
-"The animation is stunning," husband ("Despite the racist undertones," via me).
-A lot of camels getting shot in the neck and head. How do you really feel about Arabs Motofumi??
-This is more violent than a Quentin Tarantino movie.
-Oh hell's yes, a camel with an eye patch.
-And, Dead camel with an eye patch.
-Just learned 'shit' in Japanese.
-"Apparently one of the hostages is a camel, There are good camels, it's not racist," husband.
-First rabbit causality by a missile. Camels are rallying...Botasky is so screwed.
-"Is it strange that the camels hump isn't covered by their uniforms?" me
-My husband is giggling like Taylor Swift over here (not sure why I picked Taylor Swift, but she looks like a giggler).
-Botasky...not screwed.
-Oh man, their unit is called Cat Shit One (b-rabbit in da house (shout out to 8 mile!))
-They have to use a yellow smoke signal to call the chopper. Shout out to Native Americans!
-Packy don't be a hero....
-You know why Packy is the hero? His ears are down compared to the usual up-right rabbit ears (this is probably due to the hat he wears). That's why.
-Packy has two RPG's...WTF? (rocket propelled grenades - thank you husband).
-This reminds me of call of duty, and no I do not want to watch Water Ship Down. Husband says this is a perfect combo of both.
-Oh Botaksy, don't be a hero, stay with the yellow smoke my dude.
-Cue slow mo camels running shooting at Packy, oh crap! Camel shot in the head in Matrix-style slow mo, of course.
-Botasky to the rescue!!!
-I cannot believe I am watching this, isn't Say Yes to the Dress on or something?
-And a Black Hawk helicopter takes out a heard of camels. Of course it does.
-Why is the unit called Cat Shit One? I need this explained to me STAT.
-Botasky and Packy remind me of Frodo and Sam, only with big guns "I can't carry the ring, but I can carry your big gun." Gayyyyyy!
-Cue cute Japanese pop music to roll over end credits.
-Episode one over. Apparently this is not a movie but a series. Dear god there is more. Save me.

**disclaimer: Okay, so I really needed to write a blog this week and I figured, well hell, that DVD from Amazon from a few weeks ago was still here. So yes, it was my idea to watch Cat Shit One. I did this to myself.**

  1. I remember watching the trailer for that thing some months ago, thanks for watching it and filling me (I'm spared).
