Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again マンマ・ミーア! ヒア・ウィー・ゴー

Five years after the events of Mamma Mia! (2008), Sophie prepares for the grand reopening of the Hotel Bella Donna as she learns more about her mother's past. One of the strongest points of the film is its songs, and we get to hear songs mostly from ABBA as usual. The whole cast looked like they had as much fun making it as we did watching it. Everyone did their bit though Lily James(リリー・ジェームズ)was outstanding as the young Donna.

A Little Something for Your Birthday シャロン・ストーン 世界でいちばんのハッピーバースデイ

An aspiring fashion designer struggles to find success and love. The story cuts into her life once a year, always on the same date: her birthday. Though Sharon Stone(シャロン・ストーン)is 60 now, and playing a woman at the age of 46, the chemistry between Sharon and Tony Goldwyn(トニー・ゴールドウィン)works pretty well. She is still so beautiful and talented.

Wonder Wheel 女と男の観覧車

On Coney Island in the 1950s, a lifeguard tells the story of a middle-aged carousel operator, his beleaguered wife, and the visitor who turns their lives upside-down.
Kate Winslet(ケイト・ウィンスレット)gives one of her strongest performances, and her voice and expressions were top notch. It might not Woody Allen(ウディ・アレン)'s strongest film but one of his better.

My Super Blankey ぼくのスーパーブランキー

"My Super Blankey" with my translation has been published this week.

I sincerely hope both children and adults can enjoy this book both in English and Japanese.

The 15:17 to Paris 15時17分、パリ行き

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris--an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. Clint Eastwood(クリント・イーストウッド)shot with a documentary-style immediacy, and the action sequence on the train was truly remarkable.

Call Me by Your Name 君の名前で僕を呼んで

In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant. It is not often that films adapted from books capture the true essence, emotion and spirit of the book, but this gem did just that. Both the film and the book deal with love & loss not in the simple sense of losing the person we love, but in the sense of deliberately losing the person we love so we can sustain loving and desiring the person.

Ready Player One レディ・プレイヤー1

Even though the changes from the book are obvious, they don't spoil the film. Who knew Steven Spielberg(スティーヴン・スピルバーグ)had another crowd-pleasing actioner left in him while his focus has been on more realistic period dramas and character pieces for a while? This film seamlessly combines reality and animation into one big, exciting adventure. The comedy in the film is charming and fits in well with the film and the visuals are awesome.
