The Village


Overall: ☆☆☆

Story: ☆☆☆

Visual: ☆☆☆

Music: ☆☆☆


in a deep woods, there has a small village. The village has a law which is people do not in the forest. Because the wood has a monster, and if people go into the woods, they should be killed by that monster.

One day, one boy died in that village. From that, a lot of weird things happen in that village.


The quite specific structure of the story, but it is not enough to represent whole mysteries of the story. For example, I'm not quite sure about a motive that the people who lost their family by murder. I could understand their sorrow, but a representation of their motive and feeling of that were quite short and brief. I need more background on it.

Also, a vast majority of contents of this film are realistic. however, a possibility of the village's construction is quite unrealistic. I'm really confused about a point of observation which means should I watch it from a perspective for watching fantasy, or drama.


La La Land

Music: ☆☆☆☆☆


Mia was trying to be an actress. She applied a lot of auditions, but she didn't get successful.

One day, she heard a jazz music from a bar. and she saw that the man who is called Ryan was playing a jazz by piano. She impressed about his music but an owner of the bar didn't want his "original" jazz. the owner got rid of him from the bar. she tried to talk to him but Ryan ignored her.

However, they accidentally met at the party. and from that their life has been changed.



This was amazing. It was quite modern musical film and the story is committed to the contemporary life. I thought that the moments when the scene changed from a realistic scene to a musical scene, were really natural. Plus also a quality of songs are quite well.

In terms of the story, it is also good quality. it has a lot of connections in whole parts. I felt like everything is connected. Also the last part of the story, was interesting. Because I think a majority of people could feel that the ending was not a happy ending, but also it is not just a bad ending as well.

My friend's perspective for that was like this story was so sad and she regrets her decision in her life. However, in my perspective, it was kind of duty for them. because both of them had a big dream, and it is difficult to support each other. I thought that that farewell of them was good decision for their dreams.

From this differences between my friend and me, I realised that its ending changed by person's opinion. especially an opinion which is in terms of the priority of life. My priority is always about my dream. that is why I thought that is was not exactly bad ending. Although for the person who has a priority on his relationship, it must be a bad ending.

Also, the scenes were beautiful, and quite individual. To sum up it was a quite successful film. I completely impressed to it.

The story is OK. It was exciting and I could find out homages for episode Ⅳ-Ⅵ. However, also I thought it was just a spin-off. I thought that the most exciting element of Star Wars series is sci-fi atmosphere. Especially I really like to see characters fighting by Light saver. Obviously, it has a scene of a spaceship, also galaxy as well. But it is kind of general contents of the sci-fi film. I expected that I could see some of the specific elements of Star Wars, but it was just an additional scene for Star Wars' fan. I was really disappointed about that. Especially when I saw "fake" Princess Leia, that was like a comedy.

In terms of visual, it is a stereotype. Nothing is really interesting. Everything was normal.

So they decided to go into the woods as well.

Every characters gathering at the woods and some unpredictable things happen.



I'm really surprised that Disney made this film. Because its story was like an irony for the 'Happily Ever After' story like a Disney's cartoons.

However, I also wondering that the worth of this story. I believe that fairy tale is always separated from reality. I think this has to. Also, I think the unrealistic story makes us hope, and dream in our life. If all stories in the world are sort of realistic story, I guess that is so boring.

Therefore I think this story is sort of meaningless, and nonsense. I can't agree this film's interpretation. Tales and reality are not in the same world. We need a fairy tales because the reality is sometimes so terrible, and awful. We need a place to escape. That is exactly the imaginary world as a fairy tale. So I couldn't make sense of this story. Its interpretation is little bit weird and hard to understand
