Bad soundtrack and a so-so story, but the animations and the environments are beautiful.
While I'd really like to like this, I think it's pretty boring for the most part, or mediocrely entertaining. While I LOVE the character and the music(!) and for that reason occasionally feel like rewatching the trilogy, I don't think any of them are that great cinema: Raiders: 3 Temple of Doom: 4 Last Crusade: 3 Crystal Skull: 2
The bad english dub might've worsened the impression.
The second half was better than the first.
Very hardcore and quite interesting. Disliked the music, partially because it seemed to manipulate the message quite a bit, in an indie-emo direction.
A mixed experience. I found the factual parts and interviews regarding the history of Okinawa very interesting - not to say shocking - while for the most part all the sequences in front of the computer just confused me, with a somewhat meditative feel, but I clearly prefer both La Jetée and Sans Soleil, of the Chris Marker directed films I've seen.
I'm getting quite tired of Flixster, and would also like to import my ratings to Filmaster instead. So +1 humble request to anyone who wants to help doing this.
Somewhat confusing for a non-native speaker like myself, where the advantage of the book is that you choose the pace yourself. (and I love the book) Decently charming 3d-animations, actually. Not good or great, but decent. Too bad they went from one monarchy to 'a good monarchy' (get rid of the leader already and go for anarchism!) and great that the queen had sworn not to harm any living creature, ie. she's a vegan.
Took me by surprise.
Great film, highly recommended!
Loved the italian part in particular.
Maybe around the fourth time I've seen it. Used to love it.
Found it very rushy and confusing narratively to begin with, but after a while the love story, and Audrey Hepburn in particular - you bastard - reeling me in and touching me. Quite beautiful second half.
Beautifully shot and great music in particular!
Lame acting and story execution, but I like the intensity of the action scenes.
Not nearly as far out and nonsensical as I had expected from seeing the trailer.
Very beautiful audiovisually, and very creepy. The psychological - what you see might not be happening - which became more evident gradually, subtracted slightly from my experience, even though the realisation itself was powerful.
Very mesmerizing watch, and I sympathise a lot with the optimistic, peaceful grandparents. Maybe slightly protracted towards the end, but otherwise, at least, an amazing film. Hoping to watch more Ozu in the future.
