    Zatoichi


    Director
    Takeshi KITANO
    Cast
    Beat Takeshi
    Tadanobu ASANO
    Michiyo OKUSU
    Yui NATSUKAWA
    Yuko DAIKE
    Taka GUADALCANAL
    Ittoku KISHIBE
    Saburo ISHIKURA
    Akira EMOT

    It's a samarai film directed by Takeshi Kitano, starring Beat Takeshi. It deals with a blindswordsman who's trying to seek a solitude life but somehow gets himself involved in a confrontation with the Ginzo gang. I like this movie because of the man himself, Beat Takeshi. I thought he pulled this role really well. He was just plain cool when it came to the fights with the gang.

    My rating : 4/5

    Ping Pong

    Info : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0328258/


    Credited cast:
    Yôsuke Kubozuka .... Peco
    Arata .... Smile
    Sam Lee .... China
    Shido Nakamura .... Dragon
    Koji Ookura .... Akuma
    Naoto Takenaka .... Butterfly Joe
    Mari Natsuki .... Obaba


    The reason why I liked this movie was because of Yosuke Kubozuka. He played 'Peco' who has a friend name Smile. This movie is mainly about Ping Pong but it also deals with friendship and loyalty. Aside from that, it had a few good laughs and Sam Lee is also in this film. The ping pong matches are entertaining to watch.

    My rating : 4/5

    Crying Out Love, in The Center of The World

    [​IMG]

    Year: 2004
    Director: Isao Yukisada
    Producer: Minami Ichikawa, Kei Haruna
    Writer: Shinobu Yaguichi, Junko Yaguich
    Cast: Takao Osawa, Kou Shibasaki, Masami Nagasawa, Mirai Moriyama, Tsutomo Yamazaki, Kondo Yoshisawa

    Why I liked this movie?

    I liked the storyline. Very creative and sentimental. Plus the added twist at the end. If that's what you call it a twist. The love story between the two main characters is sad, especially when you know what will happen to one of them at the end.

    My rating: 4/5

    Be With You

    Cast : Yuko Taeuchi, Shido Nakamura, Akashi Takei

    Summary: Mio's death leaves husband Takumi and 6 year old son Yujki fending for themselves. Taku occasionally suffers fainting spells, is disorganized and fears that his health hindered Mio's happiness. Yuji overheard relatives speculate that his delivery comporomised her health, and he blames himself for her death. Mio left him a picture book in which she departs for "The Archive Stare" but re-appears during the rainy season the following year, and he eagerly awaits her return.

    My input: I really like the feel of this movie. The storyline is original and it's different from your usualy romantic love story. There is a twist in the story and I'm a sucker for twists.



    My rating : 4/5.

    Gokusen I,II: female version of GTO

    Newly graduated Kumiko Yamaguchi wants to make her mark on the Japanese educational system as a teacher. All well and good until she finds out that the school she'll be teaching at has its fair share of troublemakers and rabble-rousers. The ruffians at the school don't frighten her though for she has a secret of her own-she's a fourth generation crime syndicate member and next in line to head it up. She's gone straight and wants to be a teacher though, but she's one person in whose class you don't want to be caught fooling around!

    Good Luck: like the determination of the character
    Having achieved his life-long dream of being a pilot, Hajime is first officer on an international jetliner and is now working to become a captain. He can't seem to please Captain Kouda, who has become an exacting taskmaster since an air incident many years ago. To complicate matters, he begins a relationship with stubborn and straight-talking mechanic, Ayumi, whose parents died many years ago in the plane crash for which Captain Kouda feels he is responsible. What follows is a story of 21st century love, dreams, and passion.

    Beautiful Life: inspirational n very optimistic even in bad circumstances
    Kyoko, a young woman with an unhindered spirit despite being physically bound to a wheelchair due to illness, and Shuji, a stylish and popular fashion magazine hairstylist, are brought together in a fateful traffic incident. Despite their confrontational meeting, they soon find themselves falling in love, with Shuji drawn to her courage and enthusiasm and Kyoko attracted to his ability to look beyond her physical limitations and into her heart. However, Kyoko's protective older brother and her worsening condition begin to test the bounds of their love for each other and threaten to end their beautiful life together.

    Friends: cuter romantic comedy w/ happy ending
    Left alone on a trip to Hong Kong, Tomoko finds herself the victim of a purse-snatching. The police arrest the man she points out, but it turns out to be the wrong person: a young Korean man named Ji Hoon. Despite his anger and humiliation, he takes her out to dinner since she has lost all her money, and in return she agrees to model for his amateur film. What follows is a magical and romantic two days. Upon returning to their respective countries, Tomoko must return to her nine to five job and Ji Hoon must resume studying to join the family business rather than pursuing his dream of becoming a film director. But soon the two begin to email each other and rekindle their relationship despite the distance and obstacles between them. Marking the very first time in television history that a drama has been co-produced between Japan and South Korea, the story shows us that love has no borders.

    Forbidden Love: it's like the the tittle said but portray in a sweet way
    Michi, a 26 year old high school math teacher, tentatively accepts her boyfriend's proposal of marriage, uncertain of her love for him but feeling pressure from her father and society to do what is expected of her. Hikaru, a 17 year old boy frustrated by his home life with his single mother and having been expelled from many high schools for bad behavior, enters Michi's class as a new transfer student. As their relationship grows they realize that they both feel that they have lost themselves to the pressures of those around them, and it is this common bond that draws them dangerously close. What follows is a heart-wrenching story of forbidden love where Michi must face society's judgement for corrupting a minor, abandoning her fiance, and disappointing her parents and co-workers.

    Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake (God, Please Give Me More Time): w/ Fukada n Takeshi, very sad but nice story of love too late

After the concert, Keigo saw Masaki chasing after his van. She was drenched, and thus Keigo took her to his apartment, where they spent the night.

    My Little Chef: cute
    Seri, an unknown yet talented female chef from the country, arrives in Tokyo to work at French restaurant, Etoire, but discovers that they have gone out of business due to the departure of their main chef. Together with the restaurant's former manager, she opens a French restaurant of her own and begins to recreate the flavors her late father mastered as a famous gourmet chef. Unfortunately, Etoire returns with an unscrupulous manager, and to make matters worse, Seri learns that it happens to be owned by her birth mother living in Paris who she hasn't seen since she was a child. Seri wonders if her passion and skill will be enough to succeed.

    Strawberry on Shortcake: nice n unexpect happy ending
    At some point, Irie Manato (Takizawa Hideaki) began to withdraw himself from the world. Even when picked on, it' s not the real Irie, but an act. However one day he meets a strange girl - Misawa Yui (Fukada Kyoko). Yui, who finds the tedium of everyday life unbearable, teases Manato with her almost too upfront and honest manner. Alone and afraid Manato wavers but finds himself drawn to her. But his feelings for Yui are doomed to be unrequited...

    Pride: fun
    “…Last summer, the Mandeville City Council in Louisiana warned that any profanity used by musicians at the Mandeville Trailhead outdoor amphitheater would lead to their arrest. The facilities manager now has all musicians sign an agreement to self-censor before they go on.�

Riko does not have a good impression of him at first, but falls for him gradually. However, Teppei runs into his ex-girlfriend Mizuhara Sanae (Juuna) who is now the girlfriend of his brother Soichiro (Uchino). Consoling him is Riko, whom Teppei likes gradually. Just when Teppei and Riko start dating, Sanae realises that she still likes Teppei...

    Shinobi is pretty good. My rating would be 3/5 because it had some flaws. I wish there was another side story to it. For example, based on the game. It would be interesting to watch.
