I didn't read the books, but I've seen all the movies. All of them are great, so what's the big deal? This is the only movie I've seen that can really let you know what you're going to feel like in the end. It does it in a great way. The movie is really smooth, so if you're not into deep emotion, this one won't be a big hit. But it's a great movie that you can watch at any time. I don't recommend this movie for people who like to read the books, I can understand why they don't like it because it's different from the books, but the movies are just fine, if you have to read the books, I recommend you read them. So just watch it, and don't think about the books, just enjoy the movie!

This film is so much fun. It has that R-rated comedy that, honestly, doesn't seem all that funny in a mainstream film. And it also has that lighthearted and quirky vibe that makes it a true wacky, weird and in your face film. It's also enjoyable to watch at a slow pace, so it never feels like it's dragging. I loved this film because it's a real treat to watch. It's not the sort of film you'd find in a high budget mainstream film, and it is, in many ways, less dramatic than a mainstream film, but it's definitely different. It's a film that actually has more content than it has time to deliver, and it's well worth the effort.

Manga legend Shun Oguri's greatest, most successful work in this director's career is actually a romance movie which he directed in 1971, his debut feature. The story involves the underdog Taichi, played by Mamoru Oshii, who becomes involved in the idol business at a young age, earning a fortune and meeting the stars of the stage world in such a manner. He also learns more about his father, a famous poet, who is also the owner of a famous nightclub. There's a romance to the story, which is one of the strongest points in the film. The film is notable for its beautiful music score and its use of clashing sound and static camera angles to make the audience feel they're watching a TV movie. With a cinematographer named Takeshi Motoki, the film looks wonderful, and the music is enchanting. The two lead actors, and most of the cast, deliver one of the best performances in Oguri's career. He doesn't disappoint the audience in the way he excels in the way he says his lines, or in his portrayal of the character, and the film, or the dialogue. He even gets the character of Taichi, well, in to character, by the end of the movie, and one of the most memorable lines in the film is "I'm a friend of yours, too.". Oshii doesn't disappoint in his other films, and he does well in the role of Taichi, and the supporting cast are also good. His cinematography, while not always going for the flashy camera shots, looks great. The choreography is also excellent, and the score is one of the best in the world. The film is notable for it's visuals, and the beautiful photography which is a part of the film. Oshii's direction is excellent, as he is one of the most talented Japanese directors around, with a career spanning over a decade and twenty films. The film is a spectacular beauty, and the story is very well told, while the music is the icing on the cake. Oshii's influence has been very strong, and his filmography is second to none in the world. The film is still very much in demand today, with a great fan base worldwide. Oshii's film is a great cinematic experience, a film that will be remembered for years to come.

I guess I should explain. I'm not a huge fan of Japanese films but I love Romeo, Juliet and Oscar. So I was a little bit apprehensive about watching this film. In fact, I only watched it because it was in the Japanese section of the video store, where we often grab some great films from Japan, from 2001. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised. This film isn't your typical romantic comedy and is instead more of an action film. It is a brilliant mix of many genres, its comedy and action is at times quite brilliant, I personally found myself laughing out loud a few times. One thing that I found particularly clever was the conflict that is present in the film. Throughout the whole film, all the characters are constantly being tried to put their partner in the best situation for them and have them succeed. The characters are thrown together and trying to survive their predicament. The tension is high and the movie is good as a comedy. It is always very amusing, at times. If I had one criticism, I felt that the film was a little bit short. But I didn't expect it to be a long film, especially since its relatively short running time. Overall, I found this film to be a brilliant and entertaining film and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a more light hearted romantic comedy, where the characters have a good time. I give this film a 10 out of 10.

This is one of the most charming movies I've seen all year. It's both super cute and hilarious. I saw it when it was released in Japan in 2011. But, I've seen it many times since then. It's just a great film, definitely one of the best I've seen all year. It's got a great cast, and I recommend it to anyone, especially if you're into Japanese film or anime. Hatsukoi is the story of a Japanese man, whom was just dumped by his girlfriend, and decides to make her think he had died in a car accident. It's pretty adorable and I highly recommend this movie. I'll be the first to admit, I'm not a huge fan of anime or Japanese cinema, but I've seen a lot of these films. This one was the absolute best of the best for me.

I've just watched the movie the other night and I had the best time watching it. This is probably my favorite love story of all time. It is probably my favorite movie ever and that is saying something. I loved the storyline, the plot, the characters, and especially the ending. I have seen this movie about 10 times and I still love it every time. I don't know what it is, maybe it's the songs but I'm still humming the songs. I guess it has something to do with the great chemistry between the actors. I don't know. It's a beautiful story, and a story that should be made into a movie. This is a movie that is so worth seeing. I think if people watch the movie with an open mind, a good imagination, and a good attitude, they can really enjoy it. I can't think of any better way to watch this movie than to watch it with an open mind and a good imagination.

I know, I know. My review of this movie is very simple. I love this movie. It's great! I thought that it was a great addition to the TV series. It is funny and it is heart-warming. It has some very nice animation. It is one of those movies that you can watch over and over again. There are a few things in the movie that are a little repetitive but other than that it is a perfect movie for any age. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is because the ending was kind of confusing. I know that it isn't really fair to give this a 10 but it is only my opinion. I really don't care what anyone else thinks of this movie. This is a great movie for the whole family. I give it a 9 out of 10 because the beginning and the end were a little weird.

I was impressed by this film. I hadn't seen anything that looked so wonderful in years. The story was completely original and took me to another world. There was something about this movie that I found beautiful, and that was not the main plot. My favorite scene was when the main character was listening to the sound of water as he was swimming across the lake. This is the best scene I've seen in a film in a long time. I recommend this film to anyone who loves adventure and love Japanese culture.

From a film standpoint, "I have no cliche!" is excellent. From a comedy standpoint, it's excellent. From a drama standpoint, it's excellent. It's a goofy film that offers laugh-out-loud moments that will stick with you long after you've seen the film. What's great about this film is that, unlike most comedies, there is no pretense of humor. It's all very natural, and while the laughs are on-screen, there's still a comedic touch that is not supposed to be faked. This, to me, is the hallmark of good comedy, and "I have no cliche!" does just that. "I have no cliche!" is a terrific film, with a well-written script, and a cast of intelligent, witty, and talented characters. There's a more than adequate amount of laughs in this film, and a real lack of pretense, and yet it's enjoyable.

I was watching this movie and all I could think was, 'This is going to be an awesome movie'. The storyline was great, the cast was great, the actors did a great job. This is a great movie to see if you are looking for a nice movie to watch that isn't overly violent. I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. (10/10)

My favourite film of the year so far. Probably the best Japanese film I've ever seen. Its visuals are magical, it's funny, and the music is wonderful. The most underrated film of the year.

I like this film, I think it's a good comedy. As many of you may know, I'm a big fan of two comedians: Max Perlman and Stephen Merchant, but this film gives them the film they deserve. A must-see.

Really I don't know what to say about this movie. I watched the first two episodes of the show before I saw this movie. First I went to the theater just to see this movie. It's very similar to Tohoshi Okura from the show. It's funny, but also funny at the same time. You'll think that the character is funny and smart at the same time. The main character's mother is always looking like the type of person who will never be a mother. She always complains about the father's behavior. I find this movie very interesting. I wonder what the producers wanted to do when they produced this movie? I think they wanted to make a movie which was very enjoyable. So it was very enjoyable. I think it's a shame that the movie has been short and to the point, I think it's not very meaningful at all. Maybe if it was longer it would have been more meaningful.

You may say that this movie is stupid. But don't get too angry. It is a great movie. The humor is very exaggerated. It's like something you see in a Japanese comedy. You can even find the references from the movie in your normal Japanese life. Some of the scenes are quite shocking. The actors in the movie have given a great performance. The lines are just great. The story is simple and straightforward. But it is a very clever and creative movie. You will not be disappointed. The way the script is translated makes you laugh more than laugh. You can even find that you like it a lot more than when you saw the movie. It's a great movie for everyone. This movie is definitely not for adults. It's very simple, but very funny and colorful.

This is an excellent movie with the typical Japanese style. Hatsukoi has a great story that is important to all Japanese people. They have all their heart and soul in this movie. The characters are great and you care about all of them. The movie has good humor, great cinematography and great sound. There are some scenes that are great to watch. Hatsukoi is a movie you can watch many times and not get bored of it. The best part is that there is not any commercial ads or music.

I have always been a huge fan of Fumiko Ohnishi, her performance as Momo-san was wonderful. And I was also really impressed by the performance of Hikari Harada, who played Koichi's younger sister, Miura. I also really enjoyed Yui Ishikawa, who plays Koichi's fiancee in the film, and I really liked the musical numbers. Well worth seeing.

Packed with great songs, this film reminded me of my teenage years. There are so many great lines and situations that I hope that the same sort of will result in the second film. I also wish that it were a bit more dramatic. However, all in all, I highly recommend this movie for anyone who wants to see a more realistic Japan film.

I had seen this film about a year ago, and was really disappointed to see that it was not the classic my boyfriend had told me it was. Since then, I've seen the DVD, and I've watched it again. And I can say this is one of the best Japanese films ever made. It's something different and fresh, with brilliant characters and a clear-cut story. It has that perfect blend of Japanese humor and western seriousness, and is very funny. It's very different, but it is also very human. It shows the appeal of the American dream, and how that can hurt someone deeply. There are some very touching scenes and a wonderful story line that I wish would have been on the big screen. This film is one of the best films I've ever seen. One of the best comedies I've ever seen. 10/10

I give it a 10 just because I find it entertaining. If you don't enjoy it, I'm sure you won't like it either. The first half hour is pretty much the same except that this time the protagonist is a normal human (albeit an actor) who just happens to have a creepy old man inside him. There are three plot twists and a payoff at the end which may shock some viewers. As a romantic comedy it's lacking in comedy but as a horror film, it's lacking in horror. I like the idea of a ghost killer but I find him pretty underwhelming. His ghost is not well done. I found his attempts to kill his victims as predictable. The girl's boyfriend is a whiny buffoon, and the ghost's victims are terrible. I have no idea how they will ever be chased and defeated in this film. The costumes and makeup are pretty good but the script is unimpressive. I don't remember any plot twists in the first half hour, which seems to go on forever. There is some great dialogue. I can't decide if it's the dialogue that's underwhelming or the director's inexperience. I did enjoy the fact that the protagonist got involved with some more attractive girls to build up some interest. As for the ending, the acting is okay. It was okay. The ghost was okay. The ending was not okay. Overall I give it a 4. I think it's better than the original. This is a must-see movie.

A wonderfully laugh-out-loud movie that will make you want to walk into your next home and slap a head to go there instead of trying to sleep with the same one for the third time. A smart, hilarious and heart-warming tale of love and true friendship and living in the current Japanese culture. Kimura is outstanding as the quirky otaku teacher and I found myself laughing and cheering with his antics. I felt for the loss of the younger brother and what he was going through and the two main characters have so much in common. I was touched by the ending and I can't wait to see it again on the big screen.

The script is excellent. The actors are excellent. The direction is amazing. Everything in this film is outstanding. The characters are outstanding. The humor is outstanding. This movie is an unbelievable story. The characters are unique and the storyline is genius. The only thing I can say is it's funny. The only thing I can say is it's worth seeing. I would recommend this movie to everyone.

This movie is perfect! It is an entertaining and highly original, romantic movie about five friends that meet each other when their lives are turned upside down by the death of their father. They then decide to go on a honeymoon and try to pick up the pieces from their grief. It's a great movie with the perfect timing of comedy and romance. The comedy is great and the character of Mitsuko Takahashi is great! This movie has a very cute and attractive voice cast. This is one of those movies where you won't feel embarrassed or ashamed for watching it, because it will make you laugh so much! It is an extremely original, high energy movie that you won't forget, no matter how many times you watch it! It is also very heartwarming and sentimental. It is not a typical romantic movie, but it has a couple of very humorous moments, that are the best kind of funny. If you're a romantic, you will absolutely love this movie! This is a great movie that you will definitely have a great time watching.
