Movies! in the Month of April, 2017

7 05 2017

Have returned to Tokyo from my trip to Italy/Malta and recapping the films I saw in April.  Being away for almost three weekends, fewer than usual but quite an interesting line-up.

Difficult to choose one favorite but I guess this French film.





Movies! in the Month of March, 2017

So many good films.

Difficult to choose a best but this was probably most memorable in a surprising way.  It was better than what the Japanese trailer tried to show which I think is rare.





Movies! in the Month of February, 2017

I had to stay home for a week last week having caught the flu during which time I missed a couple of films I really wanted to see.  😦

Very difficult to pick one favorite.  Maybe the one I saw last, a film by young Canadian director Xavier Dolan which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016, though all the fighting in the film was rather heavy.  Most excellent actors.





Music! and Movies! (Mainly Movies!) in the Month of January, 2017

My movie and music collection from January, 2017

The best movie.  Hands down.





Music! and Movies! in the Month of December, 2016

26 12 2016

A little early but here I go with music and movies I went to see this month all mixed together in a chronological order.

My favorite was a Polish film, Warsaw 44, shown as part of the Poland Film Festival, about the Warsaw uprising during the World War II.





Movies! and Music! in the Month of November, 2016

2 12 2016

Taking a break from writing about my trip to Myanmar earlier in November, here is my collection of movies I saw and music events I went to in the month of November.  So much more films than music.

Three different shots for Bridget Jones’s Baby: a regular flyer, a big panel display in a theater involving a “waterfall”, and see how big it actually is.

So many good films but this one stood out.

And a few music events…

 





Movies! and Music! in the Month of October 2016

5 11 2016

Before I go talking about Yangon, Myanmar, here is what was happening in my world of music and film last month.

And here is one movie I did not get to see due to a work commitment despite having won tickets to a special screening at the Tokyo International Film Festival.  What’s more Hugh Grant (my ultimate favorite actor) and Meryl Streep were going to appear in person.

I did manage to get to the pre-viewing greeting session but it was just Meryl that came on the stage.  Hugh had another movie to shoot (good news) and sent a pre-recorded video message.  Sigh.

I have yet to see the film which opens on December 1 in Japan.
