Title: Hanamizuki

This movie sucked. Probably represents everything I hate about recent Japanese cinema. Give me my 2 hours back.

I watched this during a plane trip; I think I lasted twenty minutes before falling asleep >_>

I'm very cynical towards Japanese movies these days. 90 percent of the time, they're made with the intention of merely promoting fresh new faces and idols in the movie industry who can't act shit. That, and most of them are adapted from other sources like how Hollywood keeps adapting stuff from comic books.

The last genuinely wonderful movie I watched was Okuribito/Departures, and I doubt that a movie of such caliber will come anytime soon.

I hadn't heard about this movie, but I just read the wiki description, and I think I'm probably better off for never having heard of it.
