Movies coming to our shores

Good news are L:Change the World will be screening here (3rd April). Hmm, maybe I should ask my classmates to go and watch πŸ™‚

I’m not sure about Shadow in the Palace (K-movie) yet. As for all the Chinese flicks, lol, I will always say I want to go and watch it but always end up not watching it πŸ˜› Bleh, I’m a lazy bum…

Find out what are the upcoming C-J-K-movies in local cinema

  1. i can’t wait to see The Forbidden Kingdom … Jet Li and Jackie Chan together will be a blast!! i’ve seen Shadows in the Palace and enjoyed the first 2/3 of the story until the horror part. Already bought the dvd of The Sun Also Rises (b’cos of Jiang Wen) but haven’t seen it yet. as for the remaining of the movies mentioned, i’d like to see those with Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung.

    it’s great that the local cinema now is bringing in a lot of these Asian movies … i just hope that in the future they will bring in other genres of Asian movies and not limited only to horror (bleh … ), war epics and romance. uh … where are the Japanese movies?? there are so many good ones out there!!

  2. I noticed that for Japanese films, they only bring in popular or B.O. hit movies. I would like them to bring in anime movies like Evangelion and other movies like Watanabe Ken’s Memories of Tomorrow, Osawa Takao’s Tengoku de kimi ni aetara, Zou no senaka, Koizora, etc. That also applied to Korean movies.

  3. yeah … it’s a pity that a lot of Japanese movies (and Korean) movies with good storyline and awesome acting like Memories of Tomorrow, Tennen Kokekko (A Gentle Breeze in the Village) and I Just Didn’t Do It are not shown here. as for anime movies, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Byousoku 5 Centimetre are great. anyways, i was pleasantly surprised to see that they brought in the Chinese movie, Assembly (saw the poster at Mid Valley when i went to see There Will Be Blood the previous month).

  4. I saw “Tennen Kokekko” on sale but I didnt buy it – the plot sounds a bit “boring” – teenage romance ??

    “Byousoku 5 Centimetre” – I have watched it but I dont like the ending :/ I like the direction of the anime though and all the scenes are being illustrated really beautifully.

    As for “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time”, I need to re-watch it again as I just briefly watched it (due to tiredness, never really into watching it, if you get what I meant.)

    Yesterday, I saw “Memories of Tomorrow” on sale but that DVD video do not have English Subs so I didn’t buy it.

  5. OH … do give Tennen Kokekko a chance! it is such a beautiful and delightful movie about life in a small village … it is not mainly on the subtle romance blooming between the two leading characters. furthermore, it’s directed by Nobuhiro Yamashita who did Linda Linda Linda and the screenplay is by the same person who did Josee, The Tiger and The Fish (one of the many great movies from Dir. Inudo Isshin).

    i was also really impressed by the beautiful animation of Byousoku that decided i to look for other Makoto Shinkai’s animation movies. managed to get a couple more of his movies namely, The Place Promised in Our Early Days and Voices of A Distant Star, which are as beautiful if not better than Byousoku.

    and YUP … u should rewatch The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, the story is great with lots of funny moments and it’s a feast to the eye too. did u get ur copy here? the one that i bought here , the subtitle is horrible. fortunately, a friend sent me a copy which is distributed in Singapore.

    mmm … considering that Ken Watanabe is an internationally known Japanese actor, it’s weird that there is no Japanese version dvd of Memories of Tomorrow (with english sub) being sold at the major Asian movies online shops. YesAsia only have the HK (or is it Taiwan) version of the movie.

  6. Looks like i have some movie watching to go to. I did watch not long ago “I just didn’t do it” (with 8thsin’s recommendation). It was decently good, but not the hype for it.
