I am an enthusiastic supporter of the traditional New Years vacation pastime of clearing out Tsutaya by watching ALL the movies you have wanted to see for a while (but not had time to do so), suitably accompanied by platefuls of mochi and icecream. I watched some old favorites as well, but as for the new(er) bunch:
-Dark Shadows: Good, as all Burton movies, but kinda lost the plot towards the end
-Narnia, Voyage of the Dawn Treader: Decent, but the overly perky actress kind of bothered me
-Kokurikozaka kara: Visually beautiful Ghibli movie, a must see for all Showa fans
-The Borrowers: Pretty animation, relatively short
-MIB 3: Ok, but far too predictable. I did love the Wharhol gag though.
-Bride Wars (there were no decent movies left!): Good for feeling intensely self-satisfied if you are not a fan of the wedding industry.
Ah, it was glorious, but I swear time speeds up during vacations, for now I am back to work. No matter, onwards to a profitable new year!
