かもめ食堂、金錢帝國, Blindness, Dim Sum Funeral


かもめ食堂 (Japan) (2006)
aka: 海鷗食堂, Kamome Diner
072.gif 7/10

Shot in Finland. Just like any typical Japanese movie, the storyline is slow, without climax, but heartwarming.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0483022/





金錢帝國 (Hong Kong) (2009)
aka: I Corrupt All Cops
072.gif 8/10

Pretty interesting film on how the ICAC (廉政公署) was established. Story line is enjoyable, and its also based on actual events (more or less). I learned a piece of Hong Kong history.




Blindness (Canada, Brazil, Japan) (2008)
aka: 盲流感
072.gif7.5/10

Really interesting script, well, the novel won the 1998 Nobel prize, so go figure. But there are still many illogical parts in the movie. Like the U.S. government would just put whole bunch of blind people into a quarantined hospital without a single aid or someone in charge!? Like those blind people can actually figure out where's where in the first place. G.I. Joes with assault rifles and bio-hazard suits can't even distribute food supply correctly? Instead, they leave it to the blind people to fight for food. Oh, and in the world of the blind, the one-eyed man is suppose to be the king. Well, in this case, the woman has two eyes with fully functional vision, yet she is not optimizing her advantage. If you are going to stab someone, please find a good place and time and act fast. Don't wait until you have been starved and raped, your roommate killed, during the night when your advantage of being able to see is handicapped, and the enemy all together in a crowed room. You could just throw a vase or something at the enemy and the most fierce blind tyrant can't do anything about it except having his head bleeding like a fire hydrant. Fine, I know its a film discovering humanity, not how to run administrative procedures nor how to bully a visually impaired person.




Dim Sum Funeral (Canada, USA) (2008)
072.gif3/10

No, its hardly a correct portrait of Chinese American family. If the film is aiming for something like the Joy Luck Club, then obviously, its not working.

長野県―上田
今天京都暫停一下

長野県上田市有名的就是真田家的地緣之地。
對,就是在關原會戰中用2000人與上田城把德川三萬人釘死在上田的真田昌幸、真田幸村父子。
感謝 B 讓我有機會到這種鄉下旅行。







最近開始上映的動畫 Summer Wars 背景也是在上田。



現在有賣紀念車票,我買到第118號





舊式電車很有味道








別所溫泉站的站長剛好跟我們同車,
人很親切很會哈啦 ;)




站務員隨然年紀大了點,
但穿和服配上袴很有大正時代的氣息很可愛。

Thank you for smoking, The Darjeeling Limited, Slumdog Millionaire, Ping Pong Playa


Thank you for smoking (USA) (2005)
9072.gif/10

Too clever, Simply brilliant!!
Best comedy!!!
Love it!!






The Darjeeling Limited (USA) (2007)
a.k.a. 穿越大吉嶺, (大吉嶺有限公司? WTF...Limited as in this is a Limited (Express) Train)
8072.gif/10

Train travel = good
Train travel with good humor, even better!!





Slumdog Millionaire (UK) (2008)
a.k.a. 貧民百萬富翁

7.5072.gif/10

Nice movie, encouraging and stuff.
Yet I can't help wondering, How on Earth would Who wants to be a Millionaire ask questions like "who is on the US $100 bill" and "who invented the revolver" at the final stages of the game!? These questions are like $1000 questions. Oh, and of course don't forget the final question, "who is the 3rd musketeer?".....ummmm, are you sure you want to go for this question for like 1200 Million Rupees?




Ping Pong Playa (USA) (2007)

5072.gif/10

Nice try, but.... its not there.
It would be a good amateur student film, but as a real movie, its not quite there yet.

ジャージの二人、私は貝になりたい


ジャージの二人 (Japan) (2008)
a.k.a. The Two in Tracksuits
072.gif7/10

很典型的日本電影,
沒甚麼特別主題,
平和但有趣的日和生活。

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1263029/







私は貝になりたい (Japan) (2009)
a.k.a. I Want to Be a Shellfish

072.gif7/10

講二戰後東京省判的電影不嫌少。
這部明日の記憶超級像,
關戰犯的監獄和死刑台會不會根本是同一個佈景...

劇情有幾幕非常美。

[Chinese Movies] 天浴 新宿事件

天浴 (1998) (Hong Kong, USA, Taiwan)
a.k.a: Xiu Xiu: The Sent-Down Girl

8 072.gif/10

看了之後我才發現 "天呀,我錯怪我那個朋友了,她講話的口氣態度脾氣等等全都跟劇中女主角如出一轍"
真的不是她個人的問題,而是大家都是這樣....

啊...回到主題,青康藏高原(←politically incorrect)很美,女主角李小璐也很美。






新宿事件 (2009) (Hong Kong)
a.k.a: Shinjuku Incident

7 072.gif/10 (just barely)

嗯....想吐槽的地方很多。
譬如說成龍演女主角她爸年紀差不多,演女主角的青梅竹馬...!?025.gif
其他在很多小地方很不用心,
譬如說明明是說80年代,路上跑的的是2000以後的車子。檔案都用 4GB 的USB drive 攜帶, 外國人登錄證也是新版的,明明是從若狭灣(京都以北,舞鶴之類沿岸一帶)上岸的,結果車站的價格表一看就是橫濱(東京旁邊,離京都大概500公里)旁邊的站,然後最好470円讓你從舞鶴走東海道路線一路到東京....等等,等等

不過題材倒是很有趣,所以給七顆星
