Sometimes these thing surprise you. I was dubious about "One Cut of the Dead", but I watched it all the way through and was really glad. Enjoyable movie within a movie

So, you can't stream this movie legally, but you can find it and it's really really great. Just the right mix of goofy and charming.

Available for a couple more days there, not sure after that.

I really enjoyed it.
