Japan is hella slow and only just got this movie now
. It came out a year ago. Gah. But I am SO GLAD I didn't watch the version I um-acquired because I never had the time, because I got to see it on the big screen.
OMFG I LOVED THIS MOVIE. I actually kinda teared up at the end, and I don't do
shit like that. The twist in it was one I totally didn't see coming--I knew a twist was coming, and at one point went, "Oh, I get it, the secret is that she's [insert my first thought here]" and then that got blown out of the water, and I went, "Ahh, OK. I get it. The secret is that she's [insert second thought]." And was a bit bored because it was so obvious, and so waited to see how they did it, and then THE REAL SECRET CAME OUT OF LEFT FIELD and I went, "Waaaaaugh? OMFG!" I was totally blindsided. ...I loved this movie. <3
This is not to say it's perfect--there are some massive pacing problems at the beginning. I think it needed another 15-20 minutes because things happened too quickly--it felt like important bits got skipped. But by the middle the pacing was great, and the ending parts with the secret were OMFG.
I was talking to the coworker I went to see it with and we're probably going to see it again. And yes, the DVD will be mine.
And because sharing is caring, here is the theme song, "Bu neng shuo di mi mi
." :D I was a little teary at the end, then this song started playing with subtitles so I actually understood it, and yeah, sniffling then. I'm such a girl sometimes. (This was so emphasized today when K-san and I stopped by The Loft because we had some extra time, and I beelined for the stickers. Japanese stickers are cute
yo, and I am a sucker for them. I bought three sets of stickers--one set of bunny stickers, one set of fuzzy bunny stickers (I need to replace the fuzzy bunnies on my DS soon), and one set of of fuzzy wing stickers. Glee!), and K-san was boggling at how girly I suddenly turned and how I was all over the cute stickers. I r dork, y/y? XD;; )
ETA - THE NEW JAY SONG! OMFG CUUUUUTE~! :DDDDD *melts into happy puddle of YAY*Dao Xiang
I just got back from Osaka. And why was I in Osaka? I went to go see the movie Jay Chou directed and starred in, "Secret" (「不能說的秘密」Bu neng shuo di mimi; Japanese title 「言えない秘密」--lit. "Unspeakable Secret"). There were, thankfully, subtitles instead of a dub, which meant I could read instead of my brain breaking at the wrong voice coming out of Jay Chou's mouth. Although I did have a moment of such brainbreak during the trailers when they showed a trailer for a 'new' Taiwanese movie--it was subbed, and it took me a minute to adjust my brain because I heard the Chinese, put it in "Understand but not English, so Japanese" box without realizing it, and then was trying to read the subtitles, and I had a "Bwaugh?!" moment of confusion since what came out of their mouth wasn't what was directly written, and it took me a sec to realize it was because they were different languages because I understood both. And then came the problem of trying to make my brain flip into Japanese because I needed Japanese-brain to read the subtitles and my Chinese isn't strong enough for me to try to focus on what they're saying. My brain completely (more or less) settled by the end of the trailers, which made me happy, because it meant I had no probs when Secret started.
