You can download the raw from here, subtitle link is also there. I watched this movie (again) as a part of my 2018 Watch Challenge.   This movie was screened in the ‘Un Certain Regard’ section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival with Mugen no Junin (Out of Competition).   Just like where it was screen in Cannes, I too am a very uncertain my feelings toward this movie.

Destiny: The Tale of Kamakura

Native Title: DESTINY 鎌倉ものがたり Also Known As: Destiny: Kamakura Story   You can download it from here, link for the subtitle is also provided there. This is rated 7.0/10 via IMDb and is rated 8.1/10 via MDL.   The story revolves around a couple living in Kamakura. A place where “supernatural” is normal, like dead people walking around, or having kappa’s walk around the area, or even having the God of Misery drop from your ceiling. LOL. The story is unique itself and that is enough to get you to watch it. The story has a mixture comedy, fantasy, romance and mystery … Continue reading Destiny: The Tale of Kamakura

Love and Lies (2017)

Native Title: 恋と嘘 Also Known As: Koi to Uso You can get the RAW and SUBTITLE from here. Please support the subber by downloading it directly from that link. It was rated 6.9/10 via IMDb and is rated 8.2/10 via MDL.   Let me start by saying this: I would have preferred if she ended up with the guy chosen by the government for him.   I watched this, again as a part of the 2018 watch challenge, and because I was enticed by the plot. Imagine a government choosing the person who you are supposed to be completely compatible with because … Continue reading Love and Lies (2017)

Burutasu no Shinzou (2011)

Native Title: ブルータスの心臓 Also Known As: The Heart of Brutus , Brutus’ Heart Rated 6.2/10 via IMDb and is rated 7.3/10 via MDL. You can watch it from here. This movie felt lacking and the idea was scattered all over the place. I don’t know what to say about it. The characters doesn’t seem to be properly conceptualized. Is there anything good I can say about the movie? Hmmn… Fujiwara Tatsuya perhaps? He was great here, his acting is good but again, I can’t get why the character he’s playing is acting as it is. I remember him as Light, and he was great there … Continue reading Burutasu no Shinzou (2011)

Tori Girl

Native Title: トリガール! Also Known As: Tori Garu! I watched in on the big screen, so I do not have an available link, but one I found one (raw and sub) I’ll update this post. I watched this movie as a part of the #EIGASAI2018 in Manila. UPDATE: You can download the raw from here, the subtitle link is also posted there.   Tori Girl is NOT a love story. If you are looking for one then turn your back towards Tori Girl, you’ll be disappointed if you’re looking for romance. Tori Girl is a very fun movie to watch. At first … Continue reading Tori Girl
