So there is this movie that is coming out soon and the first trailer just hit! I actually saw a poster for this movie not even a week ago on twitter and I was left wondering what it was! Since that is Kashiwagi Hinata of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku, my first thought was that this was some kind of TV24 drama! This is the first time I have seen Hinata in a project so i did not think it was a movie because usually they start out on the small screen, well, the joke is on me it seems!

From what I can see, this movie is right up in my alley! Girls, yuri and guns, what could be better! If Bee Train was into Live Action, this is the kind of project we would expect from them! The story looks interesting but also there is signs of BAD END but I am inclined to believe in a GOOD END this time around despite all the tears, the bodies falling like sheep and those taglines of doom!

In the end though, HANDS always win and that was the case here too. Hands never let me down so I am believing in this movie giving a BEST END to Hinata and Seika and speaking of Seika, that is one unusual ‘DO! I have never seen like with that kind of hairstyle but she looks total badass for some reason with that uniform and a gun in her hand. The fact that she is pointing it at Hinata though, not so great!

More caps and the trailer after the jump…

What a Lovely Day!

So, just came back from this crazy movie and I gotta say that though I was disappointed yet again (Ireland, pls) that we did not get to have the Dawn of Justice teaser trailer just as we did not get it for Age of Ultron (srsly Ireland!) I really enjoyed this movie! You know I love action movies, especially ones that don’t have those romance shenanigans like this one (thank the Lord) and dear Readers did this movie have action!!

But even as awesome as that made it already, that sneaky Director went and dropped some bread crumbs in the form of two of the five lovely waifu! The dark haired one named Cheedo the fragile and the white haired one named The Dag! The caps you see above are from the trailer, alone! There was more in the movie and I cannot wait for the blurays just so I can enjoy them some more not to mention the fact that I might have missed some! They were such subtle moments, hidden well that unless you wee looking for them, you would not give mind to them and I am sure normal goers will totally miss them but I am no ordinary movie goer!

I am pretty sure that if I spotted them, then some of my awesome writers will give me a couple of stand alone fics that I absolutely cannot wait to read (I’m counting on you Passion & Perfection). I was also expecting them or one of them to die because hello, this is Mad Max we are talking about but for some reason they were very reserved in the death of the sub-main cast! They only killed off one of the girls, the one that was almost ready to give birth too.  But these two survived, so did two other waifu and so did Furiosa (Theron’s character)! Yep, this was begging to be shipped to Venus and back!

Like i ain’t even disappointed that they did not give us something more meaty but the fact that they survived alone is enough! It’s either a GOOD END and we settle for subtlety, or we get something more delicious but with a dose of BAD END! Now I don’t know about you all but despite being used to BAD ENDs, I still want some GOOD ENDs once in a while even if they aren’t HAPPY ENDs!

Anyway just letting you all know that if you are planning to watch this, do keep an eye out for these two, yeah?

Shishunki Gokko ~ Mizuiro no Rakuen [J-Movie]

 Mizuiro no Rakuen 水色の楽園

There is no denying that the main movie will have left quite a lot, if not all quite disappointed, or angry, or just around sad because Shishunki Gokko just had to be a typical Japanese yuri movie! And by that I mean no happy end here! Sure they tried to make it ambiguous with that last scene at the library where it looked like Takane had come back to Mika to hopefully patch things up but still, the last act of the movie just didn’t sit well for all of us!

That being said, Shishunki Gokko separates itself from the crowd by doing what has never been done before. It gave us medicine to heal the wounds provided by the main movie in the form of a spin off that is all about Takane and Mika! No other character, and I mean no other character is in this short spin off! Actually, it’s not that short, being just over 30min long!

It’s basically Takane and Mika’s date that they spend at school for some reason. I am inclined to believe that this was because they didn’t get the time to have fun at the pool during the school activities from the main movie so they decided to sneak in when the school is closed so that they could have all the fun they wanted but didn’t get to have.

I believe that I mentioned this too in the main movie review but I still cannot place where this date takes place in the whole timeline. There are some things that come before the movie’s events, then there is those that should take place after some of the movie’s events and then there is those that only make sense after the movie’s events so I am really lost!

If anyone manages to figure out exactly where this ‘Ocean-blue Paradise’ day takes place in the grand scheme of things, please do let me know. That being said, let’s follow our lovely girls as they have all kinds of fun without any interferences!

Shishunki Gokko 思春期ごっこ

Ladies and Gentlemen, here we go! The last of the long awaited yuri movies since a year ago today and another of Miki Honoka’s series of dominating projects. This is her best performance to date in any of her works that I have seen and if anyone who watches this does not fall for her till the end of time, I pray for thy wellbeing. She was so good that she made my relationship with this movie so complicated. Even now as we speak, I still find myself lost as to where to place this movie on my list!

Now please there is no reason to panic! Let me assure you that this is a legit yuri movie and in fact there is no het anywhere in sight so stay calm and read on. I have watched this movie about eight times since I got my BD and yet every watch produces a different feeling from me towards the end. But while by that I usually mean that it gets better and better, this time it went back and forth, meaning that I might love it today, but then I watch it again and I am left so angry I wanna throw something! These feelings alternate so you can imagine my confused state as to how to rank this movie!

Remember how back a few months back when I got that Spin off DVD and I mentioned how there had to be a catch for us to be given such an awesome extra of a movie that wasn’t even out yet? Well, watching this movie I was once again proved right. I no longer feel positive about being right anymore! For some reason I am sure that had it been any other movie, the happenings of this movie wouldn’t have affected me that much after all the experience I have but this movie infuriated me from time to time.

From Little Trip (Houkago Lost), to the new movie where she plays a ghost that couldn’t move on to this, I am only praying that poor Miki Honoka did not get irreversible emotional damage from all the hurt her character in all three movies, all three movies that were released in a row suffered through! I obviously haven’t watched the third one (for which she cut her hair I would like to believe but there is another reason I think she cut her hair but much later on that) but the two that I have watched, her character was hurt so deeply that she cried. Her tears in Little Trip were a cake walk for her cries in this movie, let me tell you! I cry every time I watch that scene, but once again, I am getting ahead of myself as usual.

Miki Honoka as Takane & Aoyama Misato as Mika 

The movie stars Miki Honoka, a girl that most, if not all of you will be familiar with by now. She first appeared on this blog, and my gaydar too, all the way back in 2010 I believe, when I found out that there was going to be a Live Action Marimite movie and she was playing Yumi, our main character! She was so young back then! She has starred in a lot of dramas and movies since then. She also has a twitter account in case some of you want to join the stalker list that I am on. Honoka plays Takane, the best girl as she is the one once again, that falls in love with the other main of our story.

Aoyama Yuki plays Mika, Takane’s classmate, best friend and secret love, well, until the climax of the movie that is. She loves books and her favourite author is Hanaoka Namie, a librarian at the local library that is a washed out writer despite still being a young woman. Namie plays a major role in the fate of Takane and Mika’s relationship. Mika’s dream is of course to be a fictional writer and though most will miss it, also very intelligent. Sure Takane called her an idiot but I don’t think she was that air-headed. Let’s just say for now that the secret love thing might have been Takane’s view on things. Then again there is the way she acted during the climax but that was kind of realistic, maybe so it is kind of hard to judge her. Before I drive myself crazy, let’s just get this over with, shall we?

All yuri fans out there, I wish to take this opportunity to mention something that I just realised, thanks to this movie. There is no denying that we have to suffer a lot mostly due to BAD ENDs or getting disappointed when for some reason the writers, or the directors get wet feet and suddenly turn our lesbian characters straight or dump that destination of the story all together.

Even with all that, I realised that most of the time, we always get the best stories! It’s not just me, right? I find all yuri stories more thought out, more feel-inducing, more impactful than the normal romance stories. I just figured this out recently so if anyone is looking for a reason as to why they love yuri despite all the pain, here is the reason.

Shishunki Gokko’s story falls into that same awesome story category. Before the movie, no one would think that it would be as serious as it turned out to be. I too was expecting cute girls doing cute things, or straight up fluff yuri (since we knew already from the synopsis that it would be yuri) so I was not fully prepared for what we got.

The final trailer kind of hinted at the seriousness when we saw that look on Takane’s face as she stared Namie down! But even then I did not think that it would be as deep as the movie actually turned out to be. If I were to promise you something about this movie it’s that it takes yuri seriously!

So, this is that’American Dream’ thing?

Oprah-crying

20sec, Just a mere 20s! Exactly 5s of new footage as promised (of the Batman suit) and my heart is ready to explode!! You thought I loved Superman (and Man of Steel)! Well Batman is my favourite hero followed up by Wonder Woman. Superman is the 3rd! I thought waiting for Man of Steel was torture? I knew nothing! This movie doesn’t come out until April (or was it March) next year and so far it is the most talked and hyped about comic book movie after Man of Steel (yes, people are still fighting about that movie after two years! That’s how great it is!)

But finally, finally after months of hyping with no end in sight, we finally get to see something! That something was posted by the lovely and best visual director hands down on his twitter account. It was just 20s of logos and Batman and Superman’s suits also announcing that a full teaser will be showing in iMAX theatres next Monday! Tickets were free (were as in already out!) If you want one, and that is you live in the US or want to book a flight to the US just to see a trailer in a cinema, you will have to cough up cash in the 1000s now from auction sites!

I know! It’s madness!

America! They get everything! Those lucky…Looking on the bright side, the trailer will be shown before Avengers: Age of Ultron and we here in Ireland are getting to see it earlier than in America. It opens here next week while America has to wait until May 1st! HA! Take that America! Sweet Justice (no pun intended of course)!

But that teaser though, that Batman suit! I had to re-watch that short vid until I was sure that that suit wasn’t alive and scowling down at me like the puny human that I am, not worthy of laying my eyes on it! Dear readers, I am freaking out over a costume, with no one inside it! Come Monday, or Friday if the trailer doesn’t hit the interwebs before Age of Ultron, if I see Ben Affleck in that suit staring down Supes I…

Is my medical card up to date?…It is. Good!

I am ready!

Oh ye blessed Japan!

---映画『私の少女』メイキング映像.mp4 - 00000

I seriously have no idea where my life would be without Japan! I can honestly say that 70% of the happiness I am feeling in my life currently is because of this blessed country! There isn’t even any doubt about it! Ireland is to thank for the other percentage because without it’s awesome ISPs I would be less off! Seriously, a country that provides 200mb/s speeds for under 100 bucks is one to be proud of!

Back to the post, Japan just went and released some behind the scenes footage of what is turning out to be my favourite Korean movie at the rate things are going titled ‘A Girl at My Door’ or in Korean, where it is actually named after Ron-chan’s character – ‘Do-hee’. I was this close to biting the bait and get the Korean 2-Disc version of the DVD because the wait for Bluray is just murder but then I found out that Japan was going to release it in their theatres which gave me hope for a Bluray, even though it won’t have subs like the DVDs actually have but I am sure I will be able to find those with very little looking. If a DVD exists with the subs then they are on the internet for sure.

And so I held on, and then just as I was about to cave in again and get the DVDs ( hey, what can I say, the temptations is increasing by the passing month!) Japan goes and places even more hope in my heart by releasing this very short sneak peek at the BTS of the movie and by the jolly, such a small amount of scenes and yet I felt like re-watching this movie, again!!! Actually I am going to do just that after this! I don’t think I have ever watched a movie so many times in such a small amount of space like I have this movie! And it has no subs!!! This is not Japanese we are taking about here where my yuri powers give me the ability to understand what is being said, I only know less than 10 words of Korean that I can understand when spoken and these words include just titles, JUST TITLES!!!

So you can imagine how much this movie means to me if I am willing to put up with not understanding a thing all these times I watch it and yet every watch I fall in love with it even more! Actually now that I think about it, even if the Japanese DVD (BD hopefully) doesn’t have subs, if it has dubbed audio, then there is no need for subs because if my yuri powers increase with the amount of love I have for what I am watching then I will turn into a fluent Japanese speaker watching a Japanese version of  ‘A Girl at My Door’!

Oh man, I just went and hyped myself up even more for this movie, didn’t I! Please Japan, do the same thing you did with ‘Wonderful World End’ and release this Bluray like next month or something! I beg of you! But while we wait for that, jump over for the vid and some cute scenes from it…

You know that thing that Japan generally thinks of LGBT? You know, where being gay is a phase that teens go through and that once they are adults they outgrow? Where it’s okay to be gay, as long as you are still young? Well, this is what this movie is about, that is, the  main message it seems to send! That is one of the only two things that I don’t like about this movie! This ‘gay is only a phase’ thing really rubbed me the wrong way! Worse still they even turned it into a curse. A curse that affects only girls because there are no gay men in Japan apparently, oops, I meant gay boys since grown-ups can’t be gay having outgrown such nonsense. I am totally tasting metal in my mouth right now!

The other is that they tried so hard to be intelligent by mixing in human elements into what is supposed to be a supernatural/horror movie! If any one of you watched those promotional videos I posted a while back while this movie was in cinemas, Ayami was saying something about her character Aya being the next Sadako which really brought my hopes up even higher about this movie seeing as I am a great horror fan. So you can imagine my disappointment when in the movie, apparently the Aya ghost was not the one causing all the deaths but rather humans! Okay, that really pissed me off! You can’t compete with Sadako, Kuchisake Onna or any other legendary villains like that, nope! If they had made Ghost Aya the villain that she was supposed to be instead of trying to be wise bums, this would have been a 5 star horror and the birth of the next Gen villain but alas. Seriously, Michi did not even get to take a photo, not a single photo, with that famous camera of the Fatal Frame series we know and love! Not one!!! All the rage!

Other than those two facts, this movie was really great. Which isn’t saying much seeing as those two points I just touched upon are what make this movie’s gears move! You see, the main thread in this movie is that there is a curse that breaks lose when a girl kisses the photo of the girl she likes. Apparently this has been going on for generations in this school (There is a whole gallery of lovers from years past) and up until the current head sister’s school days, the curse was un-stoppable as in every graduating class there was always a couple the loved each other so much that instead of growing up and having to be separated, they would commit suicide in order to freeze their time together forever. The head sister was one of these girls and was in love too once. But when they went to commit suicide together with the girl she loved, the head nun cheated and did not fall with her lover. That apparently broke the curse!

But with Aya’s arrival, the curse began anew. Girls would fall for her to the point of them breaking out the curse all over again by kissing her photo, which we actually find out wasn’t her photo but more on that later. Aya who is also being affected by the curse by being bombarded with weird visions, decides to lock herself in her room for the whole last term. Also because she couldn’t handle the way her fellow students looked at her wherever she would go and as she said, did not understand the feeling of a girl loving another girl (to which Michi replies that she doesn’t even understand the feeling of loving a boy. I gave her 10 points for that BTW!).

And so the movie opens around this time, only a few days left to go before graduation, Aya is still locked up in her room, the girls are going crazy without their Aya, the curse is spreading and getting stronger. And in the process bodies begin to fall like sheep.
