Tomoyasu Hotei – Battle without Honor or Humanity

The day before yesterday I reviewed Kill Bill Volume I and II. I heard that music also played in the Transformers movie 2007 when the Autobot Bumblebee changed from 1978 Classic Camero into a Chevrolet 2008 Concept Camaro. Its name is Battle without Honor or Humanity. The musician is Tomoyasu Hotei, a Japanese musician, guitarist and actor. Great guitar lyric!

According to Wikipedia, Tomoyasu Hotei (布袋寅泰, born on February 1, 1962 in Takasaki, Gunma Prefecture) is a Japanese musician, guitarist and actor.

At 190cm (6 foot, 3 inches), Tomoyasu Hotei is one of the most intimidating people in the Japanese music world. This image has also been put to good use when casting him as the villain in movies and TV commercials, most notably as the sinister man in black chasing Masatoshi Nagase in the Boss coffee ads. Over a long musical career as a guitarist with one of Japan’s legendary rock bands, guest artist and solo performer, he has developed a worldwide reputation as Japan’s premier axeman and has sold over 25 million albums. Possessing strong skills as both a guitarist and songwriter, he has played in various configurations and styles, but has always been a rocker at heart.

Below I put the snapshot of the scenes of these two great movies when this single was played.

Battle without Honor or Humanity was played in Kill Bill Volume 1 when O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) and her gangs went into a hangout called “House of Blue Leaves”.

Battle without Honor or Humanity was played when Bumblebee transformed from 1978 Classic Camero to a Chevrolet 2008 Concept Camaro in the Transformers movie 2007.

P.S. According to Wikipedia, the song is also played many many times in different films, games and songs.

Movie Voyager Autobot Ratchet

Gentlemen, today I bought another Autobot toy, that is, the Movie Voyager Autobot Ratchet, a Hummer H2 conversion. I know it sounds a little bit childish, but I just cannot resist the alluring apple.. :)

Actually I intended to buy a Movie Delux Barricade, or a Blackout, however they were all gone so fast, included the Movie Leader Optimus Prime I bought 2 weeks ago. I only found two Ratchets, and some Easy Transforming toys that lack details which I would not buy.

Anyway, this one is different from the original character appeared 20 years ago, which was an ambulance. Check the former characters below:
