Might be a little late on this one, but happy new year! For some, it might be spent at home, with their asses parked in front of their LCDs (or CRTs for that matter), it might be spent with friends in their parties, it might be spent in a countdown party either at VivoCity or Esplanade, but for me, I spent the whole of New Year’s Eve watching movies. No not those illegal, pirated shit, but real deals in cinemas. Some people might not want to watch movies during public holidays, because them businessmen jack ticket prices up insanely, but for me, I want to watch something firsthand as well as to support it of course. This is not a in-depth movie review, just some thoughts on what I felt about each movie.
Sorry for the delay! orz
It’s been a long time since the last post, which was the review for Byousoku 5 Centimeters, Chapter 1: Ouksahou. School was pretty taxing, so it could only be done now seeing I have a short term break, instead of the estimated last weekend. And to add fuel to the fire, my desktop’s LCD was down due to a defective chip, and it’s only friday it was back up and running. Many thanks for the Samsung serviceman as he had to come down to my house twice. The first time he changed my LCD panel, thinking it was the problem. Shortly after he left the white screen of death appeared again, and he popped back after I called him again. Well if you think changing the chip for LCD is boring then I guess you’re right.
Now to the ultra-delayed review of Chapters 2 and 3 of Byousoku 5 Centimeters. It’ll be a word-intensive post, so I’ll add in screenshots to offset the wordiness as well as to supplement what cannot be expressed in mere words from a mere human with mediocre English, and very little adjectives…
The screening of Byousoku 5 Centimeters marked the first day of my December, followed by random exploring all the way up till Changi Airport’s new sparkling Terminal 3. Though it’s not really complete.
I will begin the review for Byousoku 5 Centimeters with “Oukashou”, the first chapter.
Theme song of Byousoku 5 Centimeters per Second. I can’t really put it to words (the movie), other than I love it very much. And if you’d watch the movie, it’s probably gonna make you bawl like a 7 year old. Touching movie, so let it do the talking.
