There are not a lot of movies I CAN'T watch but that is definitely one of them.

I wrote a blog entry devoted to the Kamen Rider movies that get released in Japan every year (spin-offs of the long-running TV series).




I hope to see the newest one in a theater when I get to Japan.


I include the one that featured Erina Mano.

Has anyone heard of a movie documentary called "Geek Girls"?


Here's how it's described on IMDB:


When filmmaker Gina Hara sets out to explore the hidden half of nerd culture, she struggles through unexpected resistance. Welcome to the world of cute dresses, professional gamers, fake names and death threats.


I'm just wondering how it's being received in fan circles. The trailer doesn't give much info. It seems to be mainly about female cosplayers and gamers.

I watched The Last Jedi now that it's finally out in streaming and boy this was the most thoroughly unthrilled and unexcited that so many millions of dollars have ever made me.

Also with the amount of stupid "funny" shit crammed into it Disney managed to make JarJar Binks look like something out of a Bergman film. What a waste.

I liked it but Leia floating through space still gets to me. I just can’t.

Exact same.  I actually saw it in theaters twice, which is rare for me the last few years.

Rare to see a Hollywood movie with an all-Asian cast. Definitely worth seeing, although it's full of all the cliches of traditional Hollywood romantic melodramas and it seems to revel in its wedding porn and luxury porn.


I wonder what Asian critics think of it.


The breakout star in it, for me, was New York rapper-comedienne Awkwafina, who plays the heroine's college pal whom she reunites with in Singapore and dresses her for the wedding. I'd love to see her star in a series of comedies.


I was pleased that the soundtrack included a lot of Mandarin songs, including by three singers I'm familiar with, Sally Yeh, Teresa Teng, and Grace Chang.

I just watched Train to Busan with my best friend. It was actually my first zombie movie, and I was worried about it because I tend to feel like I’m in the movies I watch, so scary movies are... well, scary. But it wasn’t too bad and I kinda enjoyed the suspense! Was also pleasantly surprised to see my girl Ahn Sohee in it (even if her character didn’t make it lol)

I watched Knives Out.

It was crazy seeing familiar spots in the movie. It was filmed near me. If you saw the movie, the building they set on fire was an old RMV that’s been closed for years. I remember theme they were filming that because I thought the building was actually on fire because there were fire trucks everywhere.

Also the car chase is a few towns over in the opposite direction. Which was also funny because I was literally there that afternoon so to see the familiar spots was also fun and interesting.
