updates & hot springs
2 tumblr themes
updated info page with more previews to past designs
Updated with two new lovely tumblr themes! I’m in a good mood for making tumblr themes. But really, after finishing one, I’m exhausted because usually when I make one, I just sit there and code for hours on end. Well, same with any sort of updates really. Tomorrow, I’m going with my grandmother to hot springs. I’m super excited, but that also means I won’t be updating even though I just have so much inspiration lately! I’m not sure why, but it feels great.
Anyhow, well, I watched a Japanese action/thriller movie yesterday titled Kaiji (based on manga/anime with the same name). It was very good. It reminded me a lot of Liar Game (manga/jdrama) because they both focused on strategy and mind games. The plot was really good, it’s a lot more segmented than I thought it would be (less anti-climatic than the sequel) but each game was very intriguing and unpredictable (in terms of process of solving the games).
The visuals were done well too, I’m guessing they had a formidable budget for this film, as it looks more quality than a lot of Japanese action movies. It’s not an artistic thriller, just a plan-old action… though don’t compare it to Hollywood ones, those tend to be a lot more flashy.
I really loved all the actors and actresses in Kaiji. I don’t know why, but Tatsuya Fujiwara really draws eyes to him when he acts, even though for some reason, he always makes the characters more pathetique than they’re supposed to be (such as in Battle Royale, where he plays Shuya). Like, I can’t stop watching him even though his character portrayals make them out to be lame (weaker characters?). I’m not quite sure how to explain it.
But oh goodness, the other actos and actresses’ performace was pretty much flawless. I love Yûki Amami (character was Rinko Endo) and Teruyuki Kagawa (character was Yukio Tonegawa), very powerful, credible acting. Definitely worth a watch if you enjoy Japanese action movies.
** STILL IN NEED OF FEEDBACK/SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO UPDATE
