The Mule 運び屋

A 90-year-old horticulturist and Korean War veteran turns drug mule for a Mexican cartel. Clint Eastwood(クリント・イーストウッド)is definitely one of the most iconic figures in movie cinema, and his ability to keep directing movies at near 90 years of age is just astonishing. The performance from the cast and Clint Eastwood was solid, and the story was moving and realistic.

A Star is Born アリー/ スター誕生

A musician helps a young singer find fame as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. This is a magnificent movie with the captivating performances. We knew Lady Gaga(レディー・ガガ)could sing, but didn't have any idea how far her acting talent stretches. She is simply superb, moving, powerful and real.

Creed II クリード 炎の宿敵

Under the tutelage of Rocky Balboa, newly crowned heavyweight champion Adonis Creed faces off against Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago. Everyone has a purpose in this film. First, there's Adonis played by Michael B. Jordan(マイケル・B・ジョーダン), the brooding, bratty, world champion with a chip on his shoulder. And there's Rocky played by Sylvester Stallone(シルヴェスター・スタローン), the downtrodden wise sage who only recognizes his role in things when the chips are down. The way the fight scenes are orchestrated makes us feel like we are in the fights.

Nice play of emotions as well.

The Grinch グリンチ

A grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville. I enjoyed Jim Carey(ジム・キャリー)'s version but couldn't compare them. It is the classic story of The Grinch we all know so well, so it's sometimes predictable, still was a joy to watch. A heart-warming film with a slightly different take from the last film.

Johnny English Strikes Again ジョニー・イングリッシュ アナログの逆襲

After a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all of the active undercover agents in Britain, Johnny English is forced to come out of retirement to find the mastermind hacker. Rowan Atkinson(ローワン・アトキンソン)'s fantastically silly performance works perfectly. We can enjoy watching him get into all sorts of ridiculous situations, which are entirely predictable and idiotic, but we will never get tired of watching him do the same thing over and over again.

The Hate U Give ヘイト・ユー・ギブ

This movie is based on Angie Thomas's bestseller and stars Amandla Stenberg(アマンドラ・ステンバーグ)as Starr. Starr is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. While facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right.

Fahrenheit 11/9 華氏119

Filmmaker Michael Moore(マイケル・ムーア)examines the current state of American politics, particularly the Donald Trump(ドナルド・トランプ)presidency and gun violence, while highlighting the power of grassroots democratic movements. The lessons of the last election weigh heavily on Michael and on the nation. He gives us the working class views of the betrayal of all parties in addressing the needs of the average working American. Very poignant documentary.

Suburbicon サバービコン 仮面を被った街

As a 1950's suburban community self-destructs, a home invasion has sinister consequences for one seemingly normal family. The movie includes numerous talented actors. Matt Damon(マット・デイモン)really convinces as two-faced family father, Julianne Moore(ジュリアン・ムーア)plays two roles and portrays both a bitter and disabled family mother as well as her manipulative and superficial sister. And, George Clooney(ジョージ・クルーニー)is obviously rather known as an actor but he proves that he can also direct great movies.

The House with a Clock in its Walls ルイスと不思議の時計

A young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt aids his magical uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world. Like most fantasy movies of late, it's very CGI driven, and the leading trio is wonderful. Jack Black(ジャック・ブラック)and Cate Blanchett(ケイト・ブランシェット)have excellent chemistry together, and they're both quite humorous. The kid, Owen Vaccaro(オーウェン・ヴァカーロ), simply has the look of the ultimate social misfit.

The House of Magic おじいさんと子猫の魔法の家

Thunder, an abandoned young cat seeking shelter from a storm, stumbles into the strangest house imaginable, owned by an old magician and inhabited by a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos. You might feel like you've seen something like this a thousand times before, but it's also powered by a comfortable, familiar spark of magic. A fun and charming movie. Colorful, great characters, a flowing plot, and plenty of smiles and laughs.

The author, being a math teacher for 35 years in high school, and a mother of four children and grandmother of five, has written a lot of books for which she has taken advantage of her years of experience as a teacher and her rich experience with her children and grandchildren, and this adorable gem is a heart-warming story about a boy and his good friend, a super blanket.

Tulip Fever チューリップ・フィーバー 肖像画に秘めた愛

An artist falls for a young married woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait during the Tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam. It was beautifully shot and the cast showed up to work, with Alicia Vikander(アリシア・ヴィカンダー), Christoph Waltz(クリストフ・ヴァルツ), Judi Dench(ジュディ・デンチ)really shining. If you want to see Alicia Vikander prove once again why she's an Oscar winning actress, this is worth watching.

Club 2010 net-working event 俱楽部2010交流会

I joined a "Club 2010 net-working event" hosted by Miraisoken Inc today. The memorable guest to celebrate its 100th anniversary was Mr. Yoichi Hareyama, a best-selling author, who is also the president of Hareyama Shoten, board chairperson of Association for the Promotion of English, president of Online Hareyama University, and professor at Benesse Online University!
本日、未来総研主催の「俱楽部2010交流会」へ参加してまいりました。記念すべき第100回記念のゲストは、晴山書店代表、実践英語振興協会代表理事、オンライン晴山大学学長、ベネッセ著者大学教授としてご活躍中、ベストセラー著者の晴山陽一先生でした!

His speech about "communication skill" was so informative and helpful. I did "Book-Book Exchange" with Mr. Hareyama, a cat lover, swapping one of his popular English-learning books and Lucy the Cat! Hope both Tahei-kun, Kiyo-kun, and Seri-chan will be good friends of Lucy-chan.
「伝える力」をテーマにした講演は、とても参考になりました。猫好きでいらっしゃる陽一先生とは、先生の人気英語学習シリーズ本とねこのルーシーちゃんでブクブク交換達成!ターヘイ君&キヨ君&セリちゃんも、ルーシーちゃんと仲良くなれますように。

I was lucky enough to meet one of our university alumnae, and appreciate such a beautiful time spending with lots of successful people in various fields. We also enjoyed their Michelin-starred food and drink. Many many thanks to a fabulous opportunity as always.
大学の先輩ともご一緒でき、各界でご活躍中の多くの方々と充実した楽しいひと時を過ごせまして感謝申し上げます。ミシュラン星レストランのお酒やお料理も美味しかったです。いつもファビュラスな良縁をありがとうございます。

When slaughterhouse workers Endre and Mária find out by pure chance that they share the same dreams - where they meet in a forest as deer and fall in love.

Three Billboards outside ebbing, Missouri スリー・ビルボード

A mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter's murder when they fail to catch the culprit. Frances McDormand(フランシス・マクドーマンド)'s and Sam RockwellOne (サム・ロックウェル)'s strong performances are one of the most talked about elements to this film. The film is about grief, anger, revenge and violence, but it is also extremely funny.

The Shape of Water シェイプ・オブ・ウォーター

At a top secret research facility in the 1960s, a lonely janitor forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature that is being held in captivity. Sally Hawkins(サリー・ホーキンス)agreed to embody Guillermo del Toro(ギレルモ・デル・トロ)'s fantasies in life, and has become the soul of this film by playing a strikingly sensual role that attracts maximum attention and makes her soul sympathize with the tragedy of the unhappy girl's relationship with a creature from a different world.

Finding your feet 輝ける人生

On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate. Starring some of our favorite elder actors and actresses, this is a film with happiness, sadness, joy and disappointment and plenty of humor. A great film about growing older and learning to enjoy it.

Regression リグレッション

A detective and a psychoanalyst uncover evidence of a satanic cult while investigating the rape of a young woman. Both Ethan Hawke(イーサン・ホーク)and Emma Watson(エマ・ワトソン)gave strong performances. The story line and script were engaging, unpredictable and fresh, and technically the film is marvelous with impeccable photography and soundtrack.

Early Man アーリーマン ダグと仲間のキックオフ!

Nick Park(ニック・パーク)'s claymation creations always put smiles on our faces. While it might not quite reach the heights of their 'Wallace & Gromit' franchise, "Early Man" has plenty of humor and brings laughter. Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City to save their home.

New Year Resolution 新年の抱負

I have been transferred to AEON Hamamatsucho Daimon School this month, and been teaching here looking forward to helping each other develop. It seems I can enjoy commuting checking how a new JR Yamanote Line station, Takanawa Gateway Station, is being developed day by day toward Olympics.  In January, we commonly ask our students to write down their new year resolutions in English, but my students often ask me instead "By the way, what's yours?" every year, then I ended up thinking of my own resolution this year. Wishing all of you continued success and health and happiness in 2019.
今月よりイーオン浜松町大門校に異動となり、こちらで教えることになりました。浜松町校の皆さま、お互いに高め合えますことを楽しみにしております。近隣のJR山手線の新駅、高輪ゲートウェイ駅の開発の様子をオリンピックに向けて日々楽しみながら通勤できそうです。1月は生徒の皆さまに新年の抱負を英語で書いていただくことが多いのですが、毎年「ところで先生の抱負は?」と逆に聞かれることも多く、今年は自分の抱負もちゃんと考えることにいたしましたよ。2019年も皆さまの変わらぬご活躍を、ご健康とご多幸をお祈り申し上げます。

A Quiet Place クワイエット・プレイス

In a post-apocalyptic world, a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing. Emily Blunt(エミリー・ブラント)and John Krasinski(ジョン・クラシンスキー)are married with children in the real life and this might explain their chemistry and behavior as mother and father.
