On Crows Zero
I watched it with Lisa yesterday night and it was FABULOUS! However I have two points to make. 1) WHY oh WHY did Straits Times Life! give it TWO and a HALF stars (out of five)??? Actually I’ve always mistrusted such ranking /grading schemes but I must just rant about it again, because I had a feeling they gave such a low grade cos of it’s semi-manga style. Or cos they didn’t dig their type-of-humour. Or cos they couldn’t find some deep philosophical moral to the story. Or thought it was more jap fluff. I think alot of people, on seeing crazy japophiles, just jump to bigoted conclusions about jap (and korean for that matter) entertainment without giving them a chance!! =(
That said, I was SHOCKED to see Kuroki Meisa’s name flash up on the screen two minutes into the movie. AHHH! (Yes I didn’t do my homework before the movie, intending to just go in and watch and not read any spoilers off the net) Well, I reiterate my rambles in this previous post that she is sOoOo lucky!!! Admittedly though, the Kuroki Meisa- Oguri Shun coupling seems more realistic than Kuroki Meisa- Kame OR Nino combi.
Lisa and I were commenting so much that the guy beside us shushed us. Like ookay, he was sitting in OUR seat in the first place, but I was too polite to ask him to move. But yah lah I guess I’d have been pissed if two stupid girls next to me kept gushing about blahblahbalh.
Also, I was surprised to see Yamada Takayuki as Serizawa Tamao!!! ^_^ I recognised him from H2~Kimi to Itahibi, a dorama about baseball! He reminds me of somebodyyy…. which brings me to my next post! ^_^ In any case, I think he’s a great actor!! Very comic face <3 <3
