I almost forgot I had a blog! I’m not sure if this is worth writing about, but who cares. Blogs are for such BS.
Winter is officially over. So what? there’s still snow up there! So yesterday we went for a short snow-boarding trip to Aizu in Fukushima. Its around 200km form here, which makes it *perfect* to slip in a movie.
On a similar trip two weeks ago we saw this Oscar winner Okuribito (Departures). Sad and funny at the same time but good movie. The other one was The World of Golden Eggs Vol 3 and 4 DVD.
This week someone turned up with two new DVDs ^^
1) CROWS zero 2
Both of em could be categorized as action movies. Ok, Hancock has a little bit of SF going on, but then the long haired Japanese guys are doing some super-human flying kicks too!
Frankly speaking, I’m not into manga. So I find it extremely difficult to relate to Japanese movies, which are mostly based on manga (anime) characters. One more thing that I fail to understand is what makes these movies so uncool for me. Look at the lead characters of Crows. Thin, small, loads of attitude, long haired guys (supposedly portraying high school kid characters!) This guy Oguri Shun is apparently one of the coolest guys out here (Facing tough competition form Kimutaku and Arashi. Cool? Tell me why! ). In almost every scene in the movie he’s either looking down or up in the sky. He never stands upright (almost as if theres something up his a**) On this DVD there was a trailer of this movie called Yatterman. I think I’d have to shoot myself if I have to watch something so stupid. I’m not against Anime, but real people as anime characters? No.
I, like most normal people, grew up watching Hollywood movies and in spite of Hancock being a very bad movie, I still think Will Smith is a cool guy. I wonder what Japanese people think of him.
And not to forget Bollywood. I’m not sure if I’ve seen more of Bollywood or Hollywood, but yeah we do have some cool looking guys back in India too ^^;
Here’s an example. Hrithik Roshan. What say? Though he may not be able to act very well, he can dance pretty well!
Disclaimer: This post might seem to be a lil bit gay to some of you, but don’t worry, i’m fine. Its about coolness, not guys. AND I wanted to test MacJournal too. A better looking blog is in the making. I’m already sick of this dark theme.
