REDLINE ~ Heart-pounding Wild Action! Also, a Tale of One Man’s Romance…

REDLINE

Last Friday night, after some thinking and consideration (plus I didn’t feel like trying to catch up with the current series since they just didn’t fit the mood for me, which was dark late night), I finally decided to watch REDLINE to see what all the hype was about. I know that this is late, but better late than never. One word to describe my experience: wild, scintillating, exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping, awesome action! Ok, that was actually six (or seven?) words, but one word just doesn’t do justice enough to describe this amazing, beautiful, visual movie.

Redline is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car – all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee – but will she prove his undoing, or can a high-speed romance survive a mass destruction race?

MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING! As this is a review on a movie (particularly one that has become one of my top favorite movies of all time), this post will be longer than usual, chockfull with pictures, filled with spoilers, and plenty of my impressions and thoughts. So, my recommendation and advice for watching this movie for those who shall stop here for fear of being spoiled, go into this movie with the intent of just purely enjoying the entertainment. No need to over-analyze anything the first time watching this movie. It’s awesome. Go. Watch it now if you haven’t yet. Then come back when you’re finished and read on ahead for my impressions!

Hello, I have a brief update for y’all. Starting from this day, I will be extremely busy due to the next two weeks being the last of the college semester.

5 Centimeters Per Second Episode I ~ Oukashou

I thought that to start things off with my anime blog, I would tell you about my top favorite movie, which is 5 Centimeters Per Second (2007) directed by Shinkai Makoto.

5 Centimeters Per Second is actually a three-part movie comprising of Oukashou (桜花抄), Cosmonaut, and 5 Centimeters Per Second. However, today I will be talking about the first episode, Oukashou (桜花抄). For those who don’t know, 桜花抄 means “Cherry Blossoms.”

Spoiler Warning! There may be spoilers, and if you want to watch this movie without any spoilers, do NOT read on ahead! Otherwise, read on.
