Hello my little happy bunnies, here’s a few movies I’ve been watching lately.

They are in native languages, and require subtitles, unless you understand Japanese and Korean, then no problem.

 

There are in no particular order… just good fun interesting and somewhat twisted movies LOL

IMDB link first, then my thoughts, then (if available) a link to the trailer on YT.

 

I’d love to hear what you thought of the movies if you watch any, please feel free to sign up (its free and there’s no spam) and leave a comment or fifty 😛 share the love.. share this blog 🙂

 

0.5mm – AKA 0.5 miri – Japan

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3825360/

Loved this movie for so many reasons.. it’s insane, funny, sad and loveable, and so much more, it takes us on a  journey with the main character who’s life gets turned upside-down because of a simple request by one of her clients… and needless to say, it sets up a journey of  exploration of the self, and how we might survive if we had to.

 

 

Departures – 2008 – Japan

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1069238

This beautifully crafted movie is more chilled and easy paced and is based around a man who loses his dream job of playing cello in an orchestra, left at a loss for what to do with this life, he and his wife move back to his hometown, where they both run into unexpected people and the growth of a new life.

It does touch on an interesting aspect of life that I guess most of us never contemplate… I’ll let you watch and find out for yourself.

This is a beautiful movie, and I do highly recommend it 🙂

 

 

100 yen Love – Japan

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4080598/

I’m not exactly sure about this one, mostly cause the core subject of the movie doesn’t interest me.. but hey… it’s about a woman who still lives at home with her parents, and is a no-hoper, who’m eventually finds an interest in Boxing….. Going to leave it there… lol, worth a watch if you’re really bored…

 

 

 

I’m a cyborg, but that’s Ok – Korea

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0497137/

This one had me in fits of laughter , i guess because I totally feel for the main leads, and can understand the need for escapism .. I’m going to leave it here, because you need to explore this beautifully crafted romantic-comedy for your selves 😛

 

 

Himizu AKA Themus – Japan

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1900893/

I’m actually watching this now as I write this post, and I’m about half way through.. and shit, i’m really not sure what to make of it, honestly i think it shows a part of life and family that exists but no one ever talks about, especially bought to light in the wake of the Tsunami (which the movie is set .. well.. just after..) … this is a bit disturbing, but I guess, Once Were Worriers was also.. meh..

 

 

Cold Fish – Japan

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1632547/

Another typical Sion Sono movie, and OMG it doesn’t fail to bring home the goods lol, this one, I really recommend you don’t eat beforehand and keep the kiddies away… It’s a blast.. it’s sick, twisted and just mental! love it! 🙂

 

 

Norikos Dinner Table – Noriko no shokutaku – Japan

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0468820

Yea, you guessed it, another Sion Sono movie lol, what can I say, I am enjoying these way too much LOL – this one did well at various film festivals and is basically about a girl who runs away from home because she is bored with her mundane humdrum life, .. she runs off to the big city (Tokyo) to meet up with some others she met on a BBS.. and boy, it gets weird from there …. This movie makes a lot of references to another Sion Sono movie called Suicide Circle which I watched a few years back… I believe it was based on a true story about a group of young school girls who all jumped in front of a train… who knows… it was fun! 🙂

 

 

 

That’s it my little bunnies… I hope some or all of these movies appeal to you, you sick twisted bunch of lovely humans 🙂
Have a great week 🙂
