As I continue to watch Japanese dramas, much like Aya Ueto, I find myself seeking to find Shinohara Ryoko’s drama. I started to watch her in Anego, and then I watched her in Unfair, At Home Dad, Women’s Island, Hanayome wa Yakudoshi and Haken no Hinkaku. Read more…

Meet the Robinsons

March 29, 2007 Leave a comment

This is the latest Disney CGI release on a representation of the future. The premises for this movie is of Louis, an orphan genius inventor who tries to remember his past in seeing his mother. Because of a science fair mishap, Wilbur came from the future to assist Louis fix it and ensures that his own future is not different. However, a villain from the future also plot to get revenge on his past against Louis.

Louis gets into the future and meets Wilbur’s large eccentric extended family and learns how to grow up in the process. What I liked about this movie was the character development of Louis, or Cornelius, while the movie was kinda confusing in some parts, like with the invention’s own desires for a warped world, this is a good family film.

Kaleido Star

A series I got into because a friend liked it first for the costumes and Lalyla Hamility. I liked it because of the music, the spirt of the characters and the moral of the story. This is a medium length series, around 50+ episodes… not in the likes of One Piece or Sailor Moon.. Kaliedo Star has two seasons and three OVA’s. Read more…

One Piece – Episode 302

March 27, 2007 4 comments

Ack…!!! I miscalculated… darn it… it is not the end of the Enis Lobbey arc!!!!!!! I don’t want to say that this episode was a disappointment, but it was. Ugh… next episode (303- onward for an undetermined length) is going to be filler episodes. It’s the same world that the episodes 291-292 covered. The only thing that makes it difference is the fact that Davy Back Fight characters (Captain Foxy) (edited) will be in the episode doing god knows what… but I also got from the cap that Sanji will be fighting and that can be something to see…

Anita Mui – Stand By Me.

March 24, 2007 3 comments

“Stand By Me” is one of my favorite songs by the late Anita Mui…. there’s countless others, but just to listen to this actually cheers me up. This song is a Cantonese remake of the version sang by Ben E. King, Leiber and Stoller. I guess you can say the 80’s movie is not really related to this song..although the lyrics do sound very much in the spirit of being close to your friends, to support them. Read more…

Miyazaki’s new movie details..

March 20, 2007 Leave a comment

Yay.. I was so excited to hear news about this… well another moment of becoming more excited as news of Hayao Miyazaki’s possible final movie is release. Still I’m very excited, for I do know a patten of one to two movies a years.. predominantly one movie a year release for Studio Ghbili, one of my favorite animation studio there is…. Even though I’m still waiting for the release of Gendo Sekai.. this is definitely going to stay with me for the year like Howl’s or Sento no Chihiro…. or Mononoke Hime…

Anyhow as news tell me.. Miyazaki’s newest project/movie is called “Gake no Ue no Ponyo” (Ponyo on top of the Cliff.) The movie is slated for release in summer 2008.

I found more details here… and man is it a family drama in the works. The new movie’s male lead character is inspired by the director’s own son, who directed Gendo Sekai.. Ghbili’s last movie…

Let’s see and in quotes..

The plot revolves around the Princess goldfish Ponyo who wants to become human and 5 years old boy named Sosuke. Key words of the film are “father”, “mother”, and “a cliff”. …. The model for Sosuke is Goro Miyazaki (Hayao’s son) when he was 5 years old.
