Back from watching Star Trek: Into Darkness.

Really good show... A solid 9/10... And much better than Iron Man 3.

If you're familiar with the Trek films, you see an interesting twist from a previous film. Victory! Peace!

Went to see Man of Steel today...

Was quite good for the most part... Until the power went out in the theater near the end of the movie. Sad

They gave us readmission tickets, but now I need to make time to go see the movie again. Sweat

Watched Monster University today. Not as good as I expected from reviews, but I haven't seen any of the previous Monster movies before. Took awhile to get going, there was a lot of energy and action, but it wasn't until the end of the scare games that it delved deeper. The part after the scare game, when they moved onto dealing with fear, was the best part for me. The friendship part of the story was nice, but not deep enough for me.

Saw Still Mine last month. Very good performance. Engaging story telling about an elderly couple growing old together, and the challenges the husband faced in caring for his wife and building a new home. Not especially moved though. The battle with bureaucracy for the new house was more like a sub-plot, I thought it was more than that from reading the synopsis for the film.

Well, this should ruin everybody's day, the trailer for Keanu Reeves in '47 Ronin':http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47_-pqoPDVQ

Or as someone wrote in the comments, "Jackie Chan to play Abraham Lincoln in 2014."

Edit: YAHOO has already come up with an article '9 things wrong with Keanu Reeves '47 Ronin': http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/top-9-things-wrong-47-ronin-trailer-191220227.html?page=5

I was thinking, geez, only 9.

And James Shigeta. A Japanese American from Hawaii. A big time romantic lead through the late 50s and early 60s... and still going strong. (I still think he has the second best voice in American movies. -- Gotta give James Earl Jones the nod as #1 -- )


Interesting article on James Shigeta's movie 'The Crimson Kimono':http://www.kcet.org/socal/departures/landofsunshine/intersections/noiring-la-the-crimson-kimono-and-asian-american-sexuality-in-the-age-of-the-cold-war.html

I did find this YouTube clip that starts out over at Evergreen Cemetery in Boyle Heights and ends up in Little Tokyo (which is barely recognizable from today's Little Tokyo): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDnRrHKHInc

And it's available on DVD: http://www.amazon.com/Collection-Hollywood-Adventure-Shockproof-Underworld/dp/B0024FAG6W

w00t!

Saw this yesterday. Very good movie.

I used to follow F1 more closely back in the 1970's and remember Niki Lauda's horrific accident. He was well on his way to a second consecutive world championship when he crashed. And to think, he came back six weeks later from near death (he was given last rites in the hospital) to race was pretty amazing.

The actors in the film look a lot like Lauda and James Hunt.

I first saw this movie many years ago and then again about a year ago. Sam Fuller was a very underappreciated filmmaker who made interesting movies. Another of his films, The Steel Helmet, also touched on nisei history through one of its characters (the film focused on a squad of American soldiers in the Korean War).

A lot of The Crimson Kimono was shot in J-town; not surprising because the story takes place there. Some of the scenes took place in the back alleyways where the warehouses and factories were--it reminded me of when my family (and many others I'm sure) would skip the stores and go directly to one warehouse to get arare, to another to buy saimin, and to a factory for mochi. This was back in the 60's when it was still a thriving place.

Just watched Gravity. Very simple story and it failed to deliver much emotional impact, but the space scenes in 3D were enthralling and amazingly real. That alone made it worth watching.

Just finished watching Pacific Rim... Better than I thought it would be.

Noticed that Ashida Mana had a role in the film as a young Mako Mori (Kikuchi Rinko).

I'd give the movie a 7.5/10.

Old black and white movies, online or download.

Any recommendations? I like old movies but had only watched a handful of classics.



Watched About Time at the cinema earlier this month. I like it, but the second half was more contemplative than romantic comedy.
