Hello! Nice to meet you. My name is Robert and I'm from Dundee, Scotland(U.K.). Shortly after graduating in Physics, at university, I decided to come to Japan. I spent my first two years in Kitakyushu before deciding to move to Sapporo in 2006. The main reason for my move was the summers down south. Sapporo has a very similar climate to my country so I enjoy it very much. I enjoy playing many kinds of different sports, with my favourites being football(soccer) and golf. There are many things that have kept me in Japan, including the people and the food. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Nearly Pitch Perfect
I do like a good musical once in a while and thankfully this was a good musical. A sleeper hit back in 2012 this became a must-see slice of escapism. It really has a paper-thin plot, over the top characters, and is overly reliant on slapstick humour. However, there are just enough subtle jokes and small crazy set pieces that it works. The musical numbers are pretty non-descript without being annoying and the casting is spot on. All the characters fit their roles and play them well. Not to spoil the plot but it’s the usual university kids winning against the odds story. Not genre defying, yet as a piece of comedy it is worth watching just for the whispering gags alone, that and Rebel Wilson (yes that is her name) who steals the show as Fat Amy.
Its Netflix time again. This was a cult eighties classic that had passed me by but which I heard mention of and had heard plenty of quotes from. Shot in black and white (pretentious but to be expected from a low budget arty movie) and set around a day in the life of two inner city stores, it charts the ridiculousness of life in working class America. Full of weird characters and mental cases, the film lurches from out-right hilarious to offensively bad scripting and acting. A curate`s egg of unwieldly proportions but strangely compelling all at the same time. I have to admit I found it hard to get through and then hard to forget. One of those films that stays with you, but in a good way.
Bill & Ted
I recorded this because I saw it eons ago when I was a teenager and I really enjoyed it then. Having matured a little since then, I expected it to be dated and no longer funny. When it began it was a riot of eighties colour and hair, no real plot, and terrible acting. However, I stuck at it because I remembered the character of death to be rather amusing. After around the first twenty minutes I began to enjoy it, once I had switched off my brain, and as dumb and ludicrous as the film was, it was actually still a fun watch. I was right, it hadn’t dated well but if you need an hour to forget your troubles this slice of dumb eighties humour can still put a smile on an old cynic like me.
