[The Residents] Released in 2020 With the advent of Netflix, which allows you to watch movies from old movies to the latest movies, I feel that your needs have changed considerably. I used to go to TUTAYA and watch about 15 books a month, but now I can watch more than 25 books on NETFLIEX. (As expected, my sleep time has decreased.) What happens is that I prefer to choose movies that are light and enjoyable, rather than watching masterpieces in succession. It is aimed at so-called smash hits. In other words, it’s not the first grade, but it’s not the second grade, dare to say 1.5 grade. With the spread of online cinema, the number of good and bad has increased. In terms of sense, it’s a drama-like touch, but it feels like it ends in one episode. ☆ is 3, but it is as close to ☆ 4 as possible. A movie that can be said to be better than the Suspense Theater on Tuesday, I call it [Dora-ga] because it is a drama-like movie. The introduction has become long, but today I would like to introduce such a dora picture. Javier (Javier Gutierrez), who has been a director of an advertising company and has been a talented CM director for many years, has lost his job and is looking for a job. Instead, let go of the enviable luxury condominium and move to downtown with your wife and son. He will never forget the life of the mansion, and every time he visits the mansion day and night, he will observe new residents. Javier approaches the new resident while hiding the fact that he is the original resident. From here, a terrifying plot like Javier’s life recapture drama, which adds “the sun is full” and “parasite”, unfolds.

【キング The King】2019年公開く 時代劇が続いてしまいましたが、主演はティモシーシャラメなんでどうぞ読んで下さい。 舞台は15世紀のイギリス。 好戦的なヘンリー4世がスコットランドやフランスとの戦争に興じてる …
[The King] Released in 2019 I’m sorry that the historical drama continues. Still, the lead is Timothée Chalamet, who wants the name of a beautiful man. I think that even women who are not good at historical drama can watch it with their eyes shining. The stage is England in the 15th century. Peace-loving Prince of Wales (Timothy Chalamet) rebelled against his father while his warlike Henry IV was at war with Scotland and France, and his friend, the old knight Falstaff (Joel Edgerton). ) And live freely in the bar. However, such a life could not be continued due to the deterioration of Henry IV’s physical condition, and Hull was unexpectedly reigned as Henry V. Haru steers to war while the vassals who do not like anti-war are swirling. Invite his only trusted friend, Falstaff, to his vassals and commit himself to the war with France. It depicts Hull growing up to become the king for the true people, centered on the relationship between Falstaff and Hull, who teach the truth of things. I like Joel Edgerton, who plays Falstaff. It’s a role like Sean Connery’s untachable, and it’s a dark touch throughout, but it adds warmth. It is also a topic that Robert Pattinson, Rose Depp, and Thomas Mackenzie are holding their armpits. Even so, Timothée Chalamet is a big star since Ryan Gosling, and her old man is also mellow.

[Sword of Destiny] Released in 2016 I think many of you have seen it as a sequel to the masterpiece “Green Destiny” released in 2001. The battle for Moubay’s green sword (Green Destiny), which was protected in the first work, is depicted again. The story begins when Shurin (Michelle Yeoh), who has withdrawn from Takebayashi and retired, is attacked by a mysterious group on the way to the funeral of the owner of the Tie family, who has entrusted Green Destiny. In order to protect the sword from Haydes (Jason Scott Lee) who wants to get the blue sword and stand at the top of Takebayashi, Shurin recruits a righteous man as a bouncer. Shurin’s daughter-in-law Men Sujo (Donnie Yen), who should have died with the four swordsmen who gathered there, will also join. Friends gradually collapse in the fight against the Haydes gang that attacks one after another. It goes without saying that Michelle Yeoh will continue to play the lead role of Shurin from the previous work, but Donnie Yen, who will play the role of Sujo, who will join as a helper from this time, is very nice. It has a strong presence by filling the hole in Chow Yun-Fat of the previous work.

[Memoir of Japanese Assassination] Released in 1969 Chiba-chan … I don’t think there are any stars in my generation that surpass this person. The TV drama “Key Hunter” that I watched with my family almost every week when I couldn’t help myself. Then there were popular programs such as “Taiyo ni Hoero” and “Angel full of scratches”, but many were aired, but “Key Hunter” was cool. Sonny Chiba, also known as Chiba-chan, who starred in Key Hunter, died in Corona the other day. Next to Key Hunter, Jubei Yagyu from “The Conspiracy of the Yagyu Clan” and “Battle Without Honor and Death in Hiroshima” will be remembered as the rugged Yakuza Otomo, but this time it is said that he was eager to appear even after taking a break from Key Hunter.

『東京物語』1953年公開 パンデミックが始まって約1年半、人とのコンタクトを最低限にすることを意識していくうちに徐々に慣れてきた方も多いのでは。 ぼくも外で一杯やれないのはつまらないですが、もともとインドア派なのですっ …
“Tokyo Story” released in 1953
It’s been about a year and a half since the pandemic started, and many people have gradually become accustomed to it while being aware of minimizing contact with people. It’s boring that I can’t go all the way outside, but I’m completely used to being an indoor sect. (I think the family is stuffy, but …). Still, there is one thing I’m not used to. It means that you cannot freely go to see your parents who live apart. In this emergency, I feel a strong sense of family ties and feel lonely. Therefore, this time we would like to introduce a masterpiece known by Yasujiro Ozu, a master craftsman with the theme of family ties. Shukichi (Chishu Ryu) and Tomi (Chieko Higashiyama), an old couple living in Onomichi, come to see their eldest son Koichi (Satoshi Yamamura) and their eldest daughter Shige (Haruko Sugimura) who have lived in Tokyo for the first time in a while. Koichi, a practitioner, can’t take a day off even though he plans to visit Tokyo, and the aspiring house that has moved to be driven away is also busy running a hairdressing shop, and her parents spend a lonely time alone. Only Noriko (Setsuko Hara), the widow of her second son who died in the war, bothered She takes a break from work and takes them for sightseeing and treats them in her small apartment. In the post-war period toward the high-growth period, the delicate production depicts parents who feel lonely for their children who are full of their own lives. I watched this movie for the first time in ten years since I had children and my parents were still alive. What is the true bond and does the child really respect their parents? I will ask various questions. Nowadays, I often think of parents who live far away while resenting the government that is waving the flag of the Tokyo Olympics First.
ヒノマルソウル 舞台裏の英雄たちMovie Column 【Hinomaru Soul】
June 21, 2021
『ヒノマルソウル』２０２１年公開 １９９４年リレハンメルオリンピック、99.9%金メダルを手中に収めていた団体スキージャンプ、最後の原田選手の大失速ジャンプでまさかの銀メダルに終わります。 40代半ば以上の方なら原田選手 …
【Hinomaru Soul】 released in 2021
The 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, the group ski jump that had a 99.9% gold medal in hand, and the last big stall jump of Harada ended up in a silver medal.
If you are in your mid-40s or older, you may remember the malicious interview with Harada, the personal attack that is impossible in sports now.
This movie is centered around Jinya Nishikata (Kei Tanaka), one of the players who won the silver medal at the Lillehammer Olympics.
Nishikata encouraged Harada (Takayuki Hamatsu) who had stalled and vowed to win the gold medal at the Nagano Olympics four years later. I will end up.
Nishikata, who won the final race before the selection and was convinced that he would be selected as the representative, is overwhelmed by anger and regret.
At one point, Nishi was trying to quit skiing, but at the request of the Ski Association, he decided to participate in the Nagano Olympics as a test jumper.
The number of test jumpers gathered was 25, except for Nishikata and Minamikawa (Gordon Maeda), who had fallen as representatives. Even so, each of them is a young man who volunteered for the Nagano Olympics with a dream, and he trains every day. On the other hand, only Nishikata and Minamikawa (Gordon Maeda), who have fallen out of the national team, will enter the Olympics without being able to dispel the humiliation of going behind the scenes.
And Nishikata, who watches over the competition, wishes Harada’s first jump to “fall!” In his heart.
And once again, Harada’s big stall jump puts him in 4th place, and the gold medal is far away.
Before the second jump, a blizzard occurred and the competition was interrupted. Whether to resume the second competition or to decide the ranking based on the results of only the first competition, the judge who made the referee said, “If all the test jumpers can fly safely, the competition will resume.”
It will be left to the gold medal of the reversal or 25 test jumpers in the 4th place or the 2nd run.
Since it is a movie of the most famous story in the history of the Olympics, I wrote about the story, but with the support of so many test jumpers, I was surprised that Harada’s “Funaki” scene was born. Becomes hot.
I’m still dissatisfied with the script, which was greedy to spot all the characters, but it’s a movie that makes me cry. Please prepare two handkerchiefs.
Last but not least, I don’t think I’ll be watching the Tokyo Olympics anymore.
明日に向かって撃てCinema Column 【Butch Cassidy and Sundance kid】
June 5, 2021
『明日に向かって撃て』1969年公開 私のアメリカンニューシネマといわれる映画との初めての出会いで、音楽のバート・バカラックとの出会いの映画でもあります。 確か中学1年生の時、マカロニウエスタンにハマっていまして、同じ様 …
『BUTCH CASSIDY and the SUNDANCEKID』released in 1969
It was my first encounter with a movie called American New Cinema, and it was also a movie of my encounter with music Burt Bacharach.
Certainly, when I was in the first year of junior high school, I was addicted to macaroni western, and I watched it at the movie theater hoping that it would be a similar movie (not in real time, lol), but it was a completely different movie. It’s been ten years since I bought the soundtrack LP for the first time, and it’s still on the shelves of my parents’ house.
If you ask me to give you my favorite movie, I can make some candidates, but I would like to give this movie that has the best matching of images with music. I think there are many people like that.
The other day, Billy Joe Thomas, who sang the theme song “Raindrops Keep Fallin”, passed away.
The idyllic scene of Paul Newman and Catherine Ross riding two bicycles in the movie, “Even if it gets wet in the rain” (two bicycles in the soundtrack), is too famous.
I was still a kid, but I remember watching the stylish images, the stylish adult lines, and the nice background music.
This time it was a memorial BJ Thomas.
The movie is about 1890, a real outlaw, Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid.
Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman), who leads a well-known robbery group, is a bright and good-spoken man. Butch’s companion was Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), who made a name for himself as a gunman with a quiet and quick shot without any amiability in contrast to Butch.
The brilliant chase and sheriff hired by Union, which was damaged by the robbery of the round-trip train, will be relentlessly chased.
Butch, who thought he couldn’t escape from the chase, could speak Spanish, and Bolivia invited Sundance to fly high because of the good economy of the old gold rush, and he also rides Sundance.
Sundance lover Etta (Catherine Ross) accompanied them on the condition that they did not see only the place where they died, and they arrived safely in Bolivia on a luxury steamer, but …
The sleek lines, the coolness of Paul Newman and Robert Redford, and the beauty of Catherine Ross are still my dreams.
Thank you Robert Redford, Catherine Ross and Burt Bacharach for still alive.
Every time Burt Bacharach comes to Japan, I go to see it, but I would like to expect him to come back to Japan when Corona is over.
I like the song “Abandoned House” that plays when Etta leaves the two in the second half of the movie. Ask me to raise it in the music column next time.
