Just Watched: Radiance

download

I can’t help but watching another slice of life movie again… Japanese writers and directors are masters in making this kind of movie. Radiance is the name and this love story is beautiful and poetic. I feel so lucky to watch it because I never knew there is such thing as a movie for visually impaired people. Do you?

Just Watched: My Dad and Mr. Ito

ogp

What drew me to this movie? Ueno Juri. I am a huge fan. And in this movie, her acting is quite casual yet superb. I love her IDGAF attitude. She’s natural. It annoys me with her character but also proves how good she is in carrying it out as Aya. Like Let Me Eat Your Pancreas, this movie happened to be available on the plane! Trust me, there were many Japanese movies available but obviously, I could only watch a couple. It was difficult to choose from but Ueno made it easier for me to decide.

Just Watched: Let Me Eat Your Pancreas

キミスイ

Not the best movie to watch on the plane!!! Seriously, I cried buckets and I am pretty sure my blanket was soaking wet with my tears! I initially laughed at the title. Who wants to eat pancreas? *laughs* I am a vegetarian and pancreas sounds extremely disgusting! But as the movie progress, I realized they did not make a mistake. It is pancreas and not pancakes!

Just Watched: Gintama

Yup, I saw it on the plane! Twice! So fortunate to see it available while others are still waiting for the subs! I squeed so hard but I could not hug anyone but my pillow! *laughs* Gintama, you were so confusing yet so funny!!!! I do not know how to say this, peeps. Clearly, this movie is intended for the fans. For someone like me who is only familiar with the characters only because of Gintama: Mitsuba hen, I had a hard time following the story. But regardless, I laughed so hard!

Just Watched: If Cats Disappeared from the World & My Korean Teacher.

If Cats Disappeared from the World

*coughs* to be honest, I did not watch this movie recently. I completely have forgotten to blog it due to my work travel. But for sure, I saw If Cats Disappeared from the World in one of my long flights. This movie was done well. Another slice of life drama directed and acted so perfectly. If you decide to watch it after reading this post, please get your tissue handy. This movie has a tragic ending. After months of suffering from headaches, Mr. Postman finally went to see a doctor. He was diagnosed with a brain cancer and has little time left. He was shocked by it and do not know what to do. A devil in a form of himself appeared before him. He told Mr. Postman that he could extend his life if only he gives up his precious belongings. The offer was tempting but giving up means losing certain memories with it. For example giving up on his cell phone. By doing so, all his memories with his ex-girlfriend will disappear as well. The story began interesting the minute he gave up his phone, his watch, and so forth. His decision affects everything. His relationships with his ex-girlfriend, his father, his mom, and his friend.

Just Watched: Your Lie in April

It took me forever to finish it. For some reason, I was not keen on watching it in the beginning even though I’m a huge Kento fan. I don’t know. My mood was all over the place with this one. Part of me wants a mature romance Japanese movie and Your Lie is circa high school students. I was expecting cheesy romance.

Just Watched: Death Note: Light Up the New World

share

I have heard of Death Note the series many times. But this is my first time watching it because it has piqued my interest while I was extremely bored on the plane. I mean… why not, I have nothing to lose. I was worried though whether I would be able to pick up the show without having knowledge of the series. Thankfully they made Death Note easily to understand with the narration and slight flashbacks. It was great!
