I need that effin' awesome pamphlet from the 8UPPERS tour, GOSH!
Eito all look gorgeous and if you have watched the movie, you know what I mean.

Lately, I listen to their album a lot while driving (can't drive without music!).
It's not a "real" album and it's not an OST at the same time, it's a kind of mix and that's what I appreciate.

I love good OSTs, I believe that good music really serve a movie and even more, can magnify it.
But sometimes, when you listen to just the OST, it doesn't feel "right", something's missing: pictures.
I like OSTs that can live by themselves, I mean when you don't have to remember the scenes to appreciate the music.
For instance, I liked the OST of "Inception", I listened to it but didn't manage to really appreciate it.
On the contrary, that's not the case for the OST of "L'Auberge espagnole" (distributed as The Spanish Apartment" abroad).

So now you can understand why I like the 8UPPERS album, it's not only instrumental and it fits the movie quite well.
Nevertheless, "Wonderful World" sounds a bit out of place here, but whatever...

As for the solos, I like them all but of course my preference goes to Ryotan's one.
I don't really know why but I ALWAYS love the songs he composes, every one of the them, my favorite being "Code".

And in the movie, my favorite character was Arsenal I think.
I couldn't resist to Subaru's facial expressions and there's actually a reason for his cold attitude.
Maru was astoning for the fight scenes, my eyes were sparkling like crazy.
And  when I saw Ryo half naked, I immediately thought "wow, this is fan service!" XD

The movie is not exceptional and is a bit too short to my taste, the characters deserved better introductions for the story.
But as I already said, the music blends well, and the photography of the movie was good too.

All this to say that I need that pamphlet~

Ça faisait longtemps que je n'avais pas subbé autre chose d'un clip musical.
J'ai donc retrouvé les joies du timing, beurk...

À la base, je voulais traduire le film des Kanjani8 pour moi, mais finalement, je me suis dit "Pourquoi pas partager ?".
J'ai demandé à [livejournal.com profile] enshinge de [livejournal.com profile] o_e_subs si c'était possible et elle a très gentiment accepté.

L'histoire n'est pas compliquée, mais le tout fonctionne plutôt bien et la musique est placée juste comme il faut.
Quant à la photographie, j'aime beaucoup le style employé, les plans couleurs sont bien gérés.
Il y a bien sûr des scènes mémorables, mais bon, j'en dis pas plus.

Attention, ça pourra peut-être en "choquer" certain(e)s, j'ai voulu retranscrire le fait qu'ils parlent un japonais relâché dans le film, donc certaines négations et quelques mots sont passés à la trappe.
J'ai traduit les dialogues à la façon dont on parlerait à leur place.

Maintenant, quelques règles...
- Pas de streaming SVP, les copyrights J. Ent. sont très surveillés en ce moment.
- Ne pas réuploader, redirigez plutôt vers cette entrée.
- Pas d'altération des sous-titres avec ré-encodage...
- Et ne pas donner le mot de passe à "l'extérieur".

Theres' one movie I'll definitely watch this year: I Come With The Rain, Tran Ahn Hung's latest work.
(You may know him if you've watched L'Odeur de la Papaye Verte).
Tran Ahn Hung is Vietnamese but immigrated in France after the Vietnam war, so he's French.
It means it'll be officially released in France!
I've been waiting for it for ages now.

Most of the people will probably watch it for Josh Harnett in the lead role, but I'm interested in the other actors actually, the Korean actor Lee Byung-hun, but more importantly... the super popular Japanese actor/singer Kimura Takuya!
If you've watched 2046, you've already seen Kimura at least once.

A part of the OST was done by Radiohead.
But let's talk about Kimura a bit ^____^
I'm a biiiiiiiiiiiiig fan of Kimu ♥
He's a excellent actor, no wonder why he was chosen.
And he's hot hot hot *completely biased*

He's a big big star in Japan because he's one of the members of the group SMAP.
If you wanna listen to their last single in date, it's here.
And... I bought it last Summer when I was in Japan, lucky~

Let's talk about the movie a bit... Here is the poster.
It tells the story of Kline, an ex American cop now established as a private detective because of serial killer who caused him many many problems apparently.
One day, a Chinese billionaire hire him to find his son who has a special ability, he can heal with the touch of his hand. So he goes to Hong Kong with a former colleague and their investigation leads them to a local ganster and his girlfriend.
Sounds nice, no?
Kimura plays Shitao, the "magical son" ^^
(And ohhh, his accent ♥ !)

Well, if you're still not convinced, you can have a look on the trailer.
It's the Japanese trailer but I also have a longer preview.
But everyone can understand, the movie is in English.

I saw Slumdog Millionaire yesterday and I have to admit that it's a really really really good film!
I can't even remember when was the last time I had this kind of impression on a film.

I read some overly negative critics about it but for me, they're absolutely not justified.
