I arrived in Japan in mid-June of 2002. I saw my first film in early July. I just love movies, and even though they cost twice as much in Japan as they do back in Canada, I still want to see as many as I can. Because my Internet access has been somewhat limited over the past few months, I haven’t been able to keep doing movie reviews as much as I liked to. So now, we’re playing catch-up. These are all the films I’ve seen from July through November. Hopefully, starting with this, movie reviews can become a regular feature on the site again. In case you’re curious, the actual order in which I saw these films is: Men in Black II, The Powerpuff Girls Movie, Pokémon 5, Austin Powers in Goldmember, Signs, and Minority Report. The order I wrote the reviews in, however, is the order in which I remembered them.
And for those new to my movie reviews, a quick review of my patented Nib system. It’s a simple 4-point system. One nib means it’s crap, four means it’s one hell of a cool movie. So, please, enjoy the reviews!
