Life in Japan: Going to the movies, to see yourself in the movies

Somewhere in the midst of my big Summer break, I visited the Cinema. Actually, not to see anything in particular, but I had realized that a movie I worked on, as an extra, had just come out. I told myself that if there was nothing interesting playing, I would watch that movie.

The movie is 春を背負って (Carrying the Spring), a story about a guy who quits his job in the finance industry to work in a remote mountain hut for travellers.

Actually no, I was pretty sure I was going to watch that movie. Why? because I'm sad I guess and I figured this would be probably the only chance to ever see myself on the big screen, even if it was just me drinking coffee, typing, answering phone calls and making notes in the foreground/background, for a total of about 10-15 seconds.

The movie, which I originally thought would be incredibly boring, given my experience working on the set, turned out to be really enjoyable! I could understand enough Japanese to enjoy what the actors were saying (probably about 70%). The thing I enjoyed the most about it was probably the scenery. It's really breathtaking and must have been difficult for them to film in such a location.

I'm still waiting for Hollywood to notice me...

John's Art - Ivan Drago

If he dies, he dies....

The amount of times that me and my sister watched Rocky IV is surely in the hundreds. Of course, after a while I think we were just pretty much skipping to all the montages and fight scenes.
Still the best of the series (imo) and one of the greatest movies of all time (again, imo).
