Posted in: Name five of the most memorable film villains for you. See in context

Yeah, don't forget the ladies!

sure! Amy Dunne ( in Gone Girl ). and Mama Fratelli from The Goonies (lol), not from my generation i,m younger than that but it feels nostalgic to me. also, O-Ren Ishii might be the coolest villain ever.

just crossed my mind ... Ash ( in Alien ) ( pretty unique ), and Barnes, in Platoon ( Tom Berenger was amazing in that movie ). also El Indio, in For A Few Dollars More ( watched the whole Dollars Trilogy with my dad a few times, good memories ... will not forget not even a frame of those 3 movies )

no way Trump is gonna put himself in a position where he,d need to hear things like "excuse me let me finish my question . . . excuse me, let me finish" and "please, answer the question . . . i,m gonna say it again, answer the question please". never in a million years.

Posted in: What changes would you like to see in Japan's English education system? See in context

Why is everything on TV dubbed into Japanese? The only chance most people would get to be exposed to English but that chance is wasted with reeeaaaally weird dubbed voices.

not only that, we also have Japanese subtitles. so what happens is that we have the Japanese dub together with Japanese subtitles. how cool is that huh ...

Posted in: Tokyo to vote for governor three weeks before Olympics See in context

people should stop acting like everything is Yuriko,s fault. it,s not. she ,s just the Governor of Tokyo and her job is to defend the interests of the city. i used the word dinosaurs in reference to the previous comment. we often like to call dinosaurs to those (Japanese/male) political mummies that don,t like the word change in Japan. i believe that ,s not the case with Koike Yuriko. that ,s why i said she ,s better than most. of course not perfect, but still...

Posted in: Tokyo to vote for governor three weeks before Olympics See in context

This a fake "election". The timing is a little too perfect. This out of touch dinosaur of a woman knows she'll get voted back in and is doing it purely as a publicity stunt; a transparent one at that. She's clutching at straws after her (hilarious) loss of face to the IOC. Pathetic woman.

what happened? she stole your lunch or something? it ,s called politics. and i wouldn,t call it an "hilarious loss" against the IOC, what happened is that she was defending Tokyo and its people, especially those that ,ve been working hard in preparing Tokyo 2020, since she ,s the Governor of Tokyo. also considering that the IOC was disrespectful by not telling her what was happening, i think she did well. as a woman, and a globally minded one, and capable of speaking fluent english, i think she,s better than many of the old dinosaurs in the Japanese politics scene.

Posted in: Do you find Japan's rising sun flag offensive? See in context

i voted no, but like others already said here : it depends !

it ,s not offensive if we look at it as the Japanese naval ensign, the flag of JMSDF. it ,s also part of Japanese history, long before the war. and it ,s pretty good looking too.

but if it ,s used by those far-right ignorants, we already know what that means and what they,re glorifying. so ... it depends.

Posted in: What changes would you like to see in Japan's English education system? See in context

Don't know why "living large" got all those thumbs down.

he got all those thumbs down because people still want it to be (relatively) easy to teach english in Japan. i mean, if we look at it, most of the people that want to live in Japan, end up teaching english, and of course, not everybody is a teacher or from a native english speaking country, right? as i have nothing to do with being a teacher, i have no problem in saying that i support his views. it ,s true, after all, having 4 year degrees doesn ,t make one a teacher, and also, just the fact that you can speak english doesn, t make you an english teacher, or at least, the best english teacher that Japanese students deserve. but this is more complex, because this is Japan we,re talking about. on one hand, it ,s all about exams and scores, not if the person can actually have a conversation in english. on the other hand, Japanese people feel that they will never need english, at all. again, because this is Japan we,re talking about, english is not present in many people ,s daily lives. for example in Europe, kids are already used to english even before they start learning it in school. in Japan, i think the first changes need to start happening in Japanese TV, cinema, radio, newspapers, magazines, events, optional courses, etcetera. then we take it to the classroom. if Europeans can do it . . . .

last year ,s ranking was different, in fact, Tokyo was first. it ,s called innovation, it ,s always changing, you guys need to calm down. with that said, yes (even if it ,s subjective) Tokyo is a better city. the thing about New York is the way it was always publicized, same thing with LA for example, it ,s all fun until we actually start living there (unless we,re rich).

Posted in: Have you had enough of "Star Wars," Marvel and other superhero movies? See in context

@Sneezy

when i asked if people really want more i was referring to MCU,s phase 4. imo, after two movies like Infinity War and Endgame ( two amazing movies / satisfying conclusion ) i don,t think people really need (or want) another phase. as for the Spider-Man movie, i said both Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland were enjoyable, that,s it. i really enjoyed the first one so i went to see the second one, but the second one was more like... meh. and after Endgame, there,s only Far From Home, that,s the only movie, so that,s more like an "extra". so anyway, what i meant is that i have zero interest in MCU,s phase 4.

Posted in: Have you had enough of "Star Wars," Marvel and other superhero movies? See in context

from Star Wars, i just care about Rogue One. i feel like that ,s the only (Star Wars) movie that wasn,t made for kids or nerds. from the MCU, i care about the first Iron Man (only because it ,s connected to the later films), Winter Soldier because that ,s a fine action movie, Civil War as well, and then Thor Ragnarok because it leads to Infinity War and then finally Endgame. and the two Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland are really enjoyable because of that "fun" factor. except those, MCU is done for me. i mean, after having two movies like Infinity War and Endgame, do people really want more? anyway, except that, personally speaking, i like darker movies, for example Joker became one of my favorite movies. the first Sin City is amazing, Logan was also really good . . . Watchmen (extended), The Dark Knight Trilogy and pretty much that,s it. so i think i,ve had enough because i don,t think they can come up with anything (good) anytime soon, but then again, we never know when there ,s a good movie around the corner, the Joker being a good example . . .

Posted in: Busty blood drive anime girl artwork not recognized as sexual harassment by Japanese Red Cross See in context

@commanteer

she ,s just portraying women as the "victims", and saying that misogyny is real and that men are a--holes. based on those two things, it,s not too difficult to "lay out her case". i agree with many of the things she said (i mean, of course, right?) and i still made my point even if she does not want to understand it ( whether it ,s because "she ,s a woman" or because of her personal experiences ). nobody ,s running circles on anybody.

@girl_in_tokyo

like i said, i agree with many of the things you say . . . the need to promote gender equality . . . the various (disgusting) abuses that many women take in daily life, etcetera.

You need to make up your mind. Am I trying to teach lessons to people who deserve it, or am I just attacking all men, everywhere, and accusing all men of being horrible? It can't be both.

what i meant is that you end up being very aggressive to other posters even if (initially) their comments were reasonable.

Is it really reasonable for you to ask me to "explore other possibilities" in light of the fact that all women, at some point in their life, and perhaps many many times in their life, will experience sexual harassment or sexual assault?

each case is different. you can name all the millions of cases, tell all the horrible stories, but in the end, it ,s all about truth and justice both for men and women.

Usually when we disagree it's because your position on any accusation of sexual harassment is, "she might be lying so we cannot judge" while mine is "take every accusation seriously and investigate

the two things are the same. saying that there,s the possibility that the woman is not being completely honest does not change our opinion that they have to take every accusation seriously. you just go around and, like i said, end up being aggressive to other posters. i usually just remind people that we need to be careful with quick judgements, because there were already cases in which the person is completely crucified and then we find out that he/she is innocent. that,s a very ugly thing.

to simplify what i was trying to say : in cases where we still don,t know what exactly happened, i,ll explore all possibilities (even if you get "pissed off") and wait for some solid evidence before i crucify someone. i hate liars and dishonesty. you will immediately side with women because most of the time they,re the victims (and you,re a woman). i,ll side with men AND women, in other words the truth. sorry for having some common sense. you don,t know me personally, but i,ll tell you that i,m VERY sensitive when it comes to women or children being abused in some way. you should talk with my mom, she knows. as for this article (because that,s where we are): that has nothing to do with sexual harassment. it ,s just stupid. it should ,ve ended there. this is Japan, after all. that poster is very Japanese. maybe Tokyo / Japan is not exactly the best place in the world for women. things are changing but slowly, unfortunately.
