Lately, I don’t go to movie theaters. One reason is that I can’t go to theaters on Wednesdays. Wednesday is a lady’s day, so you can see movies for 1000yen. I want to go on Wednesday but I have to go to Chinese school on Wednesday.
Of course, another reason is that there is no movie which I really want to see.
A couple of days ago, I saw a making video of ‘Neko taxi’ on TV. Neko means a cat. This is a movie and it releases on this Saturday.
You probably can expect about this story.
The main character is a taxi driver. He seems a typical Japanese worker.
He cannot catch enough customers, so he cannot earn enough money. His daughter looks down on him. His boss always lands on him.
One day, a cat appears on his taxi. He is a really cute cat.
Since then, his life changes. He works with the cat everyday. He can catch many customers, and he can spend a very good time. However, his boss doesn’t think if the cat really wants to drive with him. It is because the cat cannot talk. He says that even if the cat doesn’t want to drive with him, he cannot tell the taxi driver about it.
I don’t know the last part of this story.
I can see many cute cats on this movie. I really want to pet them. And I remembered that the dog I saw on the taxi in France. He/she was also really cute and I think he brings a good fortune. This Neko-taxi’s cat also brings a good fortune. He is a living beckoning cat. I want to go to see this movie.
As you expect, this story is about a fight between Monsters and Aliens.
One day, a strange meteorite hits Susan and she becomes too big. She is caught by an underground government organization. She meets some monsters there and they become friends.
One day, an alien attacks the earth. The government says if the monsters fight against the alien, the government makes them free.
The monsters decide to fight against the alien!!!
I can see many parodistic tastes in the movie. It is not only silly but also funny. I really like this movie. The designs of characters are not original. I mean I feel as I have seen them somewhere before.
I don’t recommend you to go to see this movie but if you have a chance, you might want to see it on TV.
I went to see Red Cliff. The original story is the Three Kingdom Saga. This story is very long, and Red Cliff is only one part of the Three Kingdom Saga. The war of Red Cliff is the most exciting story in the Three Kingdom Saga because 50thousands soldiers fought against 800thousands soldiers and won.
The set of the movie is magnificent. It doesn’t seem a movie set, but they built a castle for the movie. The screen is full of soldiers, and I can expect the war was fierce by the screen.
The reasons I went to see it are, (1) I’ve read the Three Kingdom Saga but I’ve already forgotten the story and, (2) I want to listen to Chinese.
I couldn’t catch what they said, but it was a good practice for me.
Tony Leung acted Shuyu. He was a little different from my image. But it is too difficult to choose an actor who act Shuyu or other characters because this story is very famous and hundreds readers have hundreds images of those characters.
The Red Cliff I saw today is the part I. Of course, I will go to see the part II. When I see it, my Chinese skill will be better, I think.
I went to see a movie, NARUTO. This is an original story for the movie, I think.
One day, a bunch of Ninja attack Konoha where NARUTO lives in. They can fly. People in Konoha can’t do anything.
According to Tsunade, who is a head of Konoha, they are probably the people who are called ‘So-ra-nin’. Konoha and So-ra-no-kuni have fought before and So-ra-no-kuni was destroyed. (I’m sorry. I don’t remember why they had to fight.)
A doctor, Shinnou, saves many people at Hi-no-kuni. Amaru is a pupil of the doctor and his/her country was destroyed too. Naruto, Sakura, Amaru, Hinata and Shinou are going to go to Amaru’s country to save the people….
Almost all of the main characters acted in the movie. It is like an all star baseball game. It was very exciting. Of course, my favorite character Shikamaru was cool as usual.
The most excited scene was, of course, that Sasuke and Naruto were fighting together. I think many many Naruto fans are waiting for this scene. Of course, I was waiting, too. And Naruto and all of the Naruto fans are still waiting for the day that Sasuke returns to Konoha..
By the way, what did Hinata do in the movie??? When I realized, she was in a prison…. It was the most strange part in the movie…
