Posted in: Police arrest graduate students for Kyoto intersection 'kotatsu' stunt See in context

Stupid stunt by these guys but I have to say it made me laugh.

If someone got into a fatal accident because of this, would you still be saying the same thing? Let's say people would find this cute and funny and then tries to top this stupidity by making "A better one" for example playing with flammable materials inside a shopping mall putting many people at risk just to be 'funny'. I don't have problem with people making stupid videos, it's their thing! But I am against these people who will risk other innocent people's lives just to pull out their non sense stunts.

I understand it was pretty stupid but going as far as getting arrested? 10 mins and they cooperated with the cops when told to move. A heavy fine seems more appropriate.

Nah, paying money is too easy, they can jut ask mommy and daddy for it. The authorities need to send a strong message to these idiots that what they've done is dangerous and not creative at all.Better to Jail them for few days.

Isn't it funny when Japan gave billions of yen to other countries which will be taken care of by dictators and corrupt politicians there, while they can't provide a government sponsored nursing home for elder Japanese nationals that will bypass these money greedy guarantorship system and the only requirement would be being an elder Japanese citizen.

I hate sexual harrasment especially involving politicians, but I think the media should bring out the news after the trial is over and all of  the accused (not only on this case) are proven guilty.

Posted in: 55-year-old woman arrested for pinching baby's eyelid at supermarket See in context

Children running around in a store shows the lack of basic parenting. A mother should tell her kids not to run in a store. I see it so often. The store is not a place for kids to run and bother other customers

stop the victim blaming here, Kids are kids. You can ask them to be quiet now but after few minutes they can go on and play around again. Imagine taking care of 3 kids , shopping and thinking what to cook for dinner? Adults have to just adjust sometimes. If she doesn't want to see and hear kids playing around then better for her to not leave her house and she doesn't belong to this world. She should move to the woods.

Posted in: Male Hollywood stars must take pay cuts, says Salma Hayek See in context

I don't think Salma Hayek understands how the industry rolls, the basis of TF is not by gender but by popularity and value. You cannot say Denzel Washington should be paid the same as Julie Delpy (If in case they are casted in the same movie) as obviously Denzel's name will sell the movie more than Julie and if ever Cate Blanchet is casted together with Val Kilmer, Blanchet's TF will be more expensive than him as her name  is currently more valuable.

Posted in: Associates shocked at arrest of suspect in 7-year-old girl's murder See in context

Good point. Men's sexual desire and 7 years old girl do not match in my mind. But, there are people who have strange imaginations.

Where I came from, the image portray by adult entertianment models and actresses are matured and adult women. Unlike here where half of the genre's are about school children. How can someone get sexually aroused with girls in school uniforms? And it's surprising to see that these DVD shelves are always half empty meaning that many men are really  patronizing these children themed adult videos and these people could be your co-worker, neighbor or could be a family friend who you regularly invite in your home. It's absurd. Japan should commit to make their people understand that patronizing these kinds of perversion is dangerous and unacceptable.

When you go to combini and see the adult magazine section, you will always see girls in school uniforms. And you will see worse actually when you go to adult themed shops. Yup the model and actresses are maybe 18 and above but what they portray are CHILDREN! They make these actresses look like kids. Yes adult entertainment is fine with me, but it needs to be regulated. Let's admit it, they have effects on many men's minds. These children, school girls, groping and rape themed AVs should be banned totally. If not, crimes like this will continue to happen.

Oh these two are in a whole heap of trouble, getting caught do something like this in the Philippines. Hahahaha they ain't coming back!

I think it's the other way around, they be better to be caught in Japan, as there is an assurance that they will face punishments.Unlike the lineincy of the Philippines , with just few grease money they can be released again that quick as corruption is rampant especially now in this Duterte administration where everyone pro Duterte are protected regardless of being corrupt or not. And that applies to everyone, Japanese, Chinese etc. All these Japanese nationals need to do is to make a Duterte fist pose say some negative things about the past administration and find a way to grease the police and judges? 100% they can be released again.

Posted in: Weinstein's absence looms over scandal-hit Cannes See in context

I'm not a fan of Cannes film festival, I prefer Venice and Sundance. Brillante Mendoza made this movie called Kinatay, at first I was excited to see it and became so disappointed after I watched it. Cinematography, sound/audio and story are so bad and yet Cannes Film Festival gave him an award for best Director. Even the great and well respected film critic late Roger Ebert reviewed Kinatay very bad . I don't really know what basis does Cannes follow on making decisions on giving awards where even film school students' projects are way better than Brillante Mendoza's Kinatay. After that I lost interest with this film festival and stopped following it.

oldman_13

The fact that he felt a need to throw something at a female in the audience shows what kind of 'man' he is. Bruno could have made a comment or some other non aggressive gesture. I'm not surprised this thought is lost on most commenting here.

I totally agree. There are still some nice ways to stop the woman from filming than throwing something at her. But it's Bruno Mars so everyone is okay with it. Imagine if a bouncer doing that instead, I bet to see Women Rights activists going bereserk here... But, it's Bruno Mars so he get the sympathy more.

I agree with Bruno here. There are some good DVD releases that artists or record labels put out. The point of a show is to enjoy it.

The reason why they are filming is because they are enjoying the show. So after paying an expensive ticket, the labels want to milk the fans with more money again by selling their overpriced DVDs, why can't fans bring atleast some free remembrance with them? If the purpose of the filming is just for remembrance why can't Bruno give that in exchange to the millions of dollars and good life he got from his fans? Ok instagraming or uploading it on line is not good, but what if the fan is just filming a short clip just for remembrance? A simple short clip taken from the live concert won't lose Bruno Mars Millions of dollars.

should've had her removed or camera confiscated until end of show - artists should have 'no cameras please' warnings before show at entrances

should've had her removed or camera confiscated!? what is that a catholic school on tour? why do fans have to compromise for that simple thing? remember the fans are Bruno's clients, they paid for his bills. It's arrogant to say that he only get paid to sing and that's enough when the fans gave him millions of dollars and good life and all she wants is a simple amateur video clip for remembrance. Bruno became the typical arrogant mainstream celebrity.

I'm with Bruno, enjoy your life rather than focusing on recording it!

Can you say this to parents who capture videos while watching theater plays , sports competition, graduation ceremonies of their kids in school ? And how sure are you that recording that special moment and watching it again at home and sharing it with some of her friends or family won't give her happiness?

Terrible! I like BM but after reading this news I am turned off a bit. We all have our own ways to enjoy a show, some people love to just listen and watch without recording, but what is wrong with capturing that special rare moment of watching your favorite performer on stage!? Can we ban cameras on Graduation ceremonies? Pre-school theater performances? etc.? Just enjoy the show right? If the purpose of recording is just for personal use and will not be uploaded on-line or be intended for piracy, then what is wrong? Throwing a towel to someone who paid for your bills and made you famous is really an arrogant way to pay back in return.

Wow for celebrities J-police moved quickly and arrested the stalker! I have a friend who was advised by the police to just move to a different work since they cannot arrest the stalker who refused to stop creeping for months around my friend's workplace after several warnings. They warned him, threatened him, even intimidated him, but he didn't stop and the police finally gave up because they can't do anything about it datte. So my friend was forced to quit her job and move to a new work place. pity her

Posted in: No Netflix, no red-carpet selfies at Cannes Film Festival this year See in context

I have mix feelings about this. However I think Netflix gives more hope to film makers than Festivals. Most festivals are political and select their entries based on connections after taking lot's of money from film makers who they just rejected. Whereas online streaming platforms like Netflix who are now starting to make things easier for film makers to distribute and showcase their works. Indeed to have a theater screening in a famous film festival is great, but I think the game is changing. People watch movies now using mobile devices so why would a film maker waste money and effort joining festivals where only a handful of people in a theater can see? when they can show to the entire world what they've produced in just few clicks and at the same time get paid. Before the priority of film makers is to show their movies on theaters, but now I think showing it to as many people as possible is more likely.

Posted in: Over 110,000 volunteers needed for Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Paralympics See in context

Lisa Blanco

The Olympics oath focuses on sportsmanship and honor.

Please say this to the people who were forced to move out of their homes to give way for building giant stadiums and olympic villages. These people were living in those communities for decades and suddenly they needed to move out for an event that will last for only 2 weeks. They got seperated from their beloved communities for the sake of sportsmanship?

We all go on our own dime. Travel, housing, etc. We take off work.

Olympics is raking millions of dollars! why would they ask for volunteers!? The reason why they abuse is because there are people who are willing to be. The truth is only few people benefit from this extravagant event . If you look at who get the contracts for all the businesses and any projects related to Olympics, you will see the same giant companies. So what are they talking about that Olympics is beneficial to the economy and people when they are only making few CEOs richer while the rest of the people will be left with ghost town olympic villages and useless giant stadiums after two weeks. I would not have issues with them if they've just been resourceful, but No! they choose to be unnecessarily extravagant.

Posted in: 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' second-highest opening ever in North America See in context

Strangerland

I know everyone's taste is different, but this opinion shocks me. It was way better than the Phantom Menace.

I think it's not really about the taste, as we can point out easily here where the problems are. A lot of scenes were shamelessly copied from The Return of the Jedi and Empire Strikes Back. They spent so much time on scenes and characters that are unnecessary and obviously the purpose of it is to sell more stuffed toys. I like Benicio del Toro, but that whole finding the code breaker scene was a complete waste. It didnt help the plot's progress at all, it was all fat to the movie because in the end that plan didn't succeed and it was also explained that it wasn't really that helpful and critical to them. If it wasn't that helpful then why would they waste time on it? instead we want to see a longer Jedi training of Ray and a more acceptable back story of why is she really SPECIAL and worthy of becoming a Jedi replacing the legendary Luke Skywalker? I felt it was rushed and by showing the insert shots of the books is a message to the audience that Ray will just self study to complete her Jedi training (so the franchsie can go on without the lead cast and leave the characters that will not require a real person but can be covered with costume). What makes a movie interesting? Antagonist! You can feel that the audience want more information about SNOKE, information that will make his character more effective and scary. Especially STAR WARS is very well known for  it's antagonist, they need to top Darth Vader. But unfortunately Snoke was only there for like 3 scenes and was killed that easily after all the build ups of how strong  and mysterious he is. I want to know more about Snoke than that Asian girl character whose purpose now is to just start a love triangle between Ray and Fyn. At least with Phantom Menace there were many cool action lightsaber fighting scenes and the plot is moving forward whereas The last Jedi where the lightsaber duels were so boring and less they even copied one action stunt from The Matrix lol.  I don't like Jar-Jar binks but Episode 8 created more Jar-jar kind of characters. The last Jedi is terrible and the worst Star Wars I have ever scene. Disney did s superb job with Rogue One, but Eposide 7 and 8 are so bad. Apologies for the spoilers haha

Saikopsycho

It is none of any other country's business in my book... especially when just about every other country in the world has problems and inequalities of their own. Too many times in history there have been wars to "liberate", and they mainly turned out to be bloodbaths that achieved little in the end. Let the Philippines handle their own business.

Yup, so other countries should stop sending financial aid to Philippines as well as they don't want to take part helping to fund these Extra judicial killings. Let the filipinos wipe each other out without foreign tax payers funding it.

It's called bringing empathy to the world stage over the plight of Japanese abductees.

Indeed, but I think the whole world are already aware of these. I think if they want to see their families back this will sound weird but the only person to convince is Kim Jong Un.  It's really a tough situation and I don't think Trump and the entire world can really help. :(

I understand the pain of the families but I don't really understand what Trump got to do with these? Are they asking US to raid and take the abducted citizens back to Japan ? don't they realize  that this will just cause a big war that will potentially kill their lost lovedones in DPRK if they are still alive.
