2x movie recs
chasing amy is pretty darned good.
i first heard of it as a show where some guy tries to romance a lesbian, and i thought wow that’s a pretty cool theme. i mean how many shows like that are there? maybe a lot, but i don’t know of any.
it’s really funny. i liked it. and it’s not just a simple guy chases and gets girl thing. more to it. something vaguely like closer, but not quite as totally weird. more understandable.
even more surprisingly, initial d wasn’t a total flop. in fact, it was quite enjoyable! i thought the dubbing was pretty bad and jay chou was hopeless at acting, but overall… quite good! i liked how the show was like infused with jappy anime-style. i’m not into anime but i think it’s quite funny when actually acted out.
i think some scenes weren’t meant to be funny but were simply hilarious because they were so crappy =P
but yeah, overall, i actually thought it was worth my time! if you’ve just gotta catch a new show this week, this is the one to watch. unless you’re some weirdtaste moviewatcher like cherlene and hates every movie i recommend.
