Re: Upcoming Movies


Ccwf, just a suggestion - when you post "Updated the list" please post what you updated, such as "I updated the list with Movie and Movie and Movie, and Movie will be on from this time to this time" because just a three word post is kinda spammy.

By itself, I agree the update notification post is rather content-free. It's purpose is to let interested people (especially those with notifications enabled) know that the list in the first post has been updated, and all the information you requested (movies, dates of showings) is in the first post.

If you and others prefer, instead of maintaining the information in the first post, I could instead post the entire list each time.

Re: Upcoming Movies


What I meant was something like what you do with the anime forum movies or current series. You usually say what series or movie is added when you post. Thanks. ^^

I do have some knowledge of Asian history, and have always been particularly interested in World War II (in fact, my grandfather fought against the Japanese during the war), which is why I wanted to watch the movie in the first place. What wasn't drawing me into the film were the individual characters. Someone else could make another film about the same historical subject with different characters, and I might be completely riveted by it. That said, I do plan to give this film another shot sometime. I only watched it for about 20 minutes, and may not have given myself enough time to get to the good stuff.

Re: Upcoming Movies


To really tell the truth, I was actually watching this film for the historical outlook, blondie, rather than the characters. Sure, there were some boring ones and some good characters, but the main point I had in watching this film was the history.

Wow, your grandpa fought against Japan? Where?

He fought in the Phillipines, where, thankfully, he didn't experience too much dangerous conflict, though he does have some pretty interesting stories to tell. For instance, one time, the troops were going to watch a movie outdoors. The flickering from the screen, however, was starting to give away their location to the Japanese soldiers, so they had to shut the movie off and run for cover. So much for movie night! Fortunately, nothing happened once the projector was shut off.

I'd have to ask him again, but I think my grandfather said he thought he was going to be shipped out to Japan for the planned large-scale invasion, which of course, never happened.

Ok, now for something on-topic, I saw a few minutes of a J-movie called "Mr. Rookie." It aired on the International Channel Saturday night. I think it was about a businessman moonlighting as a major league pitcher or something. It might have been pretty good had I seen the whole thing.

Re: Upcoming Movies


Wow, those are interesting tales. Nice bit of family history there. Japan would have been even more destroyed if the Americans had acually invaded Japan and fought for Tokyo, like in Berlin.
