Homecoming (iroiro) Two Cents: Bop, Gold, and Flying Dragon

from-minipipami-with-love

Hello. I’m back.

I’m not dead yet. Still alive and kicking y’all.

Lulz.

One thing I clearly learned from these past three months, is that when you open your piehole and bluffing your plan to have a hiatus, it won’t work out. I repeat: it won’t work out. You’re gonna jinx the whole shit and end up suffering yourself in series of brain slavery of obligatory posting. So I took an impromptu act and going for the un-notified MIA from this blog, just because I couldn’t push myself to post any longer if I’m not really in the mood to do so. But now I’ve returned, only for a while, and Imma share to you what happened in my fangirl world for these past couple of months. It ain’t groundbreakingly revolutionary whatsoever, but still, it’s good from the entertaining angle. Hah.

About: サヨナライツカ (Sayonara Itsuka)

Torrid Lust to Tragic Lost

kiss in jealousyHola, all my peopppple! Happy Labour Day! Mama is back in bringing you couple of (meaningless) accomplishments that I wanna share right here right now. One → as you can see on your left, Messy Random Whatever had finally reached 10k page views which is soooo awesome with a capital A. All I can say is thank you, thank you, and thank yeeeeewwwww!!! to all of you my readers and visitors. I lurve you gurls so damn much-o! Woohoo! *throwing roses* and Two → I finally had watched Sayonara Itsuka, everybody say whatttt!?! Well, I know most of you probably think that what the eff should I emphasizing this no biggie matter, but when it comes to Nishijima Hidetoshi‘s landmark career projects, Sayonara Itsuka is a must watch among his filmography. And actually, there are at least three Nishi productions that are a obligatory to be watched by a fan such as moi, like Double Face (√check), for that tanpatsu was his major acting break, MOZU (√check), for that series was his major commercial success. But before those two even exist, Sayonara Itsuka was the project that putting his name on the map, and it is too because of couple other reasons such as: it was based on a romantic novel with the same title by Hitonari Tsuji, and it’s co-starred with the author’s (ex)wife, Nakayama Miho, who made her comeback acting after 12 years, while the director is John H.Lee, who was famed for his sappy makjang JDorama adaptation-KMovie, 내 머리 속의 지우개 (Eraser in My Head/A Moment to Remember), which fyi, I had watched as well. Heheh… But as for me, what’s driving me mainly to wanna watch Sayonara Itsuka were ain’t that high profile backgrounds, for I come to hear the soundtrack album first and the theme song by Nakashima Mika, and I loveeeee all of it a lot, I can almost assure myself that this movie will be my favorite of my favorite. If we can put it in Savage Garden way, it’s like I knew I love you before I met you kinda shit, y’know what I mean. Lulz…plane a kissAnd after that fully established factors and heart-tugging soundtracks, one can say that Sayonara Itsuka is definitely a one helluva dramatic romantic movie that will squish your kokoro pulps away into buckets of tears right?! Well, the answer is… NO. And you don’t know how freaking effing disappointed I am right now at this movie for the only reason that I shed my salty tears is because I had wasted away the 2.5 hours of my life that I could never get back. Ugh… SHIIIITTT!!! Mai Pen Raiiiiiii!!! *clenching fist*

45 Years of Nishijima Hidetoshi: The (Fashionably) Late Bloomer

forty fiveHi, peeps. It’s been over a month since my last post, and I think most of you have been thinking that I’m having hiatus for good or that I’m probably already dead, eh?! Haha… Well, I indeed almost considered myself to take an indefinite hiatus, but turns out I. Just. Can’t abandone you, peepsqueaks! Cos I luv you all so-so-so much with all my guts and ulcer *smooch* But it’s not just for you gurls; cos this squeezebun here too has hefty enuff kokoro to fangirl over this fetching Nippon-actor, Nishijima Hidetoshi ( ❤ ) as well. Talk about Nishijima-shi… *looking at calendar* omigosh… I am soooooooo on the verge of shedding my effin tears right at this moment, for I’m able to be alive, kicking, and posting right on the same day as his birthday TODAYYYY!!! Aiaiaiaiaiaiaiiiii!!! *sobs* And it is also not just an ordinary birth number as well, as our cutie patootie ossan is reaching the halfway to the half century age which is the big Forty and the fatso Five! Whoaaaawesome~!!! omedetou cutie ossan xoxoBut wait-o the minute-o! Before I start to yap around wildly and restlessly, I feel the need to point out that Nishijima Hidetoshi is a one rare case of late blooming actor in Japan. That being said, while most actors are reaching their heights of popularity in their 20s or 30s, Nishijima was reaching his peak right on his 40s, after had nonstop-ly starred in strings of various genre and type of films and doramas with distinctive kinds of role for over two decades.  Be it chick-flick, action, medical, sci-fi, dystopia; high budget, mediocre, rinky-dink; Japanese, Korean, English, French, whatever the shit, you name it, he’s done it. This un-pickiness of him finally become sumthin’ fruitful for his career, as he’s obtained the A-list actor predicate like he is now. And as a fan, too, it’s simply my ever so fricking pleasuuuure to be able to reap what he’d sown all this time, hence me marathoning his shitzzz all around for months. Haha. That is why, in order to celebrate this rare-as-solar-eclipse event and also not to make my hours and viewing impressions went down to the gutter of nothingness, I had made this Oh! So special! dedicational post of my fangirl journey over our birthday man sans the birthday suit. Lulz… and I’m gonna summarized the list not chronologically by the production year, but simply on my own timeline of watching process so far. Okie dokie then fellas, Here! We! Go~!

Tokyo Tower: Fanvid Edition

Since I have so much looooove for this movie, and I just come to know about how to use Windows Movie Maker sheez and going bonkers about it, I decided to make my first ever fanvid of Tokyo Tower. It’s hard indeed to make one, but I really really enjoyed the whole process and all the difficulties. Yeah… you can call me weirdo for that. Lulz…

Anyhoooo, enjoy! (You have to, dammit! Hah!)

About: 東京タワー (Tokyo Tower)

Oh, December Boys…

chuBonjour, mon belle personnes! I’m back to the reviewing loop (again) after taking quite a long sabbatical in writing sheez, cos me simply not in the mood to watch or write something. Well, aren’t I always do… Heh… but now here I am coming to give you all a little crappy treat of my thought of another old movie that I just watched couple days ago, Tokyo Tower. Well, as you all probably can guess, one of many reasons why I chose to watch this decade oldie is none other because it starred Okada as the main lead, along with Kuroki Hitomi who is still damn beautiful despite pushing 50 at the very time this movie was made. At first, I was putting this movie at the bottom of my watch list, but after I coincidentally found this pretty photo at google, I was like switching up and putting this movie straight to the must watch zone…geez, me so bonkers… lulz…

so prettehhh...
so prettehhh…

Also, adding to the lovers’ parade are fellow Johnny’s Matsujun, and Terajima Shinobu, who become another pair to spice up the whole thing, since people always say that the more the merrier. Hah! Beat it, Jacko! Lol… Okay, kay, enuff with my craziness. Now, without further ado… lets rolllllllin’!new years partySpoilert: No secrets, everything’s spoiled!!! Hahaharrr!!!

About: 図書館戦争 (Library Wars)

All is Fair in Love and War…Literaturely

looking upHolaaa~mi amigos! Whoa, it’s been quite some time since my last post, eh? Well, as much as I feel too fricking lazy to do anything, I actually feels not in the mood to watch anything either. And this laziness had reached a new level of self contemplation and realization about this blog. Actually, since the very first day of creating this minipipami.wordpress, there had been tonz of times where I come to write some post because I feel that I have to write some post, for, y’know, the sake of updating and stuff. But these days I’ve realized that it was so stupid of me; I mean, why do I have to watch something just because I want to write some damn review about it, which in the end makes me feel annoyingly obliged? Wouldn’t it be nicer if I write something because I want to do so or watching something that was so effing good, it encourages me to post something about it here? So yeah that’s my method from now on. No more obligated post! Oshhhh!!! Heheh… But then this kind of posting mood comes out as a random thing as well. Truth be told, I’ve watched quite a lot dramas and movies these past couple of months; some good, some basically crappy. But not all good dramas and movies that I’d watched are giving me something to well…write home about (ex. Dear Sister), and not all crappy dramas that I’d watched are not worth to talk about, cos sometimes hate watching is enjoyable as well, lulz…(ex. Second Love). Buuuuut then, there are also good dramas and movies that are worth to be talked and posted like this one for example. And despite my laziness that I said priorly and after busting my ass gathering my micro pieces of mood that scattered all over the effing place, I finally…FINALLY! able to push myself to watch Library Wars, which by the way, was affected by many external factors like; some says that it was good, and the other say that the romance part was cute, and so on. Well, as for me, this is Okada’s another action movies; and since I just finished watching SP and all its cronies franchises, in which I watched him being awesome with all the action scenes (will talk about SP shits on my later review, if… I’m not lazy enuff to write, lulz…), it kinda brings me a “woohoo! its gonna be good” kinda of excitement a bit. And so I watched it, and now Imma talk about it…yeah. *insert cool emoji*aim high(Spoilert: Not much, just as heavy as a 100-pages book. Lol…) click for moarrrr, darlings!!!
