-The Complex (Kuroyuri Danchi) (2013 film Japan 106min)

Yasushi Akimoto and Atsuko Maeda. Sounds exciting, isn’t it? This is a horror film starring Atsuko Maeda and Hiroki Narimiya (also played in “Nobou no Shiro” or in English “The Floating Castle”), under the direction of Hideo Nakata of “Ring” series.

-Midnight in Paris (2011 film Spain, United States 94min.)


Directed and Written by Woody Allen

Cinematography by Darius Khondji

Woody Allen is famous for romantic comedy for adults. Phrases in his movies are long but beautiful. Please feel the atmosphere of good old Paris in 1920s. Gil and his fiancé are living in Paris.

One night, he was led by the sound of midnight chime, and wanders off into Paris of 1920…

 

50/50 (2011 film United States 100min.)


Directed by Jonathan Levine

Written and Executive producer by Will Reiser

What would you do if you are diagnosed with cancer at the age of only 27? Jonathan Levine is a genius to make such a serious theme into funny movie! You can’t avoid crying with laughter for crazy things Adam’s best friends do to cheer him up. Friendship of men is deep, just only they don’t say it aloud.

No alcohol, no smoking. Adam, living healthy life, was suddenly diagnosed with cancer at the age of only 27…

 

-Ted (2012 film United States 106min.)


Directed, Screenplay, Original plan, Produced and Starring (voices) by Seth MacFarlane

This kind of movie is America’s favorite. The story is clever! This is a naughty movie, makes adults excited and breaks dreams of children.

By the way, why is Ted so popular in the movie…? Ted is a teddy bear and best friend with John since he was 8. Now John is 35, quite a good age, and living with a middle-aged naughty bear Ted…

 

-Captain Phillips (2013 film United States 134min.)


Directed by Paul Greengrass

Executive producer Gregory Goodman

Movies starring Tom Hanks are always good, aren’t they? He can make us thrilled with any character. How wonderful he is. This is a suspense movie based on the true story.

You can’t stop crying, and is definitely different from the famous “captain” of another movie. The merchant vessel Maersk Alabama was suddenly attacked by Somalian pirates. Captain Phillips decides to be a prisoner in change of freeing crews. Captain fights against pirates for his life and…

 

-The Butterfly Effect (2003 film United States 114min.)


Directed and Written by Eric Bress/J. Mackye Gruber

Recommended for those who have not seen this yet. I can’t say anything but “amazing!” I’m sure many films are made influenced by this movie.

The theme of the story is “chaos theory”, which means the small movement like butterfly’s flapping can eventually makes big difference. This is an explosive suspense of a young man who can alter his past over and over will try to save a woman he loves.

 

-The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011 film United States 158min.)


Directed by David Fincher

The original story is very interesting too. This is a series of 3 stories, so I recommend you to see all of them. Each character is neatly expressed, and both men and women can enjoy. Scariness of unexpected criminal is beyond explanation.

There are some grotesque scenes, but you will be attracted to the story. Daniel is so cool! This is a mystery which woman genius hacker who hates society and a journalist try to find out the truth about a girl who disappeared 40 years ago.

 

-Key of Life (Kagi-Dorobou no Method) (2012 film Japan 128min.)


Directed and Written by Kenji Uchida

First of all, if you have not seen “After School” directed by the same director, please see it before this. It is a milestone of a Japanese talented director, Kenji Uchida.

And this movie, you’ll love it if you like actors Masato Sakai or Teruyuki Kagawa.

Stay sharp until the end! Struggling, poor actor and a hit-man who lost his memory. Lives of two contrasting men are one day switched by accident…

 

Did you find any interesting movies?

I thought maybe men don’t prefer love stories or stylish movies, so I choose movies above. It is too much to say that how many good movies you saw determines values of your life.
However, it is good to know the world you don’t know with just few amount of money. If you haven’t decided a plan for next date, go rent movies!
