The Forest (2016)

There is one scene right at the beginning where the lead character is riding in the back of a taxi under the bridge and coming out into the bright night lights of Shinjuku, just like Bob did at the beginning. I think the director must have been inspired by this shot from Sofia's movie. It was a clos...

Welcome Atlanta Bill. I like your story. Curious, did you ever check out the hotel and the bar and grill when you were in Tokyo?

Hi SunseOdds,

I'm glad you liked it. I had such a fun and rewarding time putting it all together. Check out my other songs on my channel when you get a chance. You may like the Batman one.

You can d/l the music to your phone from Youtube? If so, go for it.

2011 movie with LiT-like appeal.

Hey guys! I just watched a movie that has certain essentially similarities with LiT. On a whim I downloaded it after surfing onto it in IMDB. I had no idea the movie would be as powerful as it is. This, to me is what a film is all about. I would not be surprised at all if the director was a huge fan...

Yes. I always watch it late at night when I can sleep in the next morning. I like to have the menu running in the background for a while as an appetizer. I usually have something Japanese during the movie like Sake or Sapporo. And sometimes make sushi beforehand too. I must be up to around 55 viewin...

Yeah, long time. Keep up the good work. Don't lose yourself to the dark side Luke. One thing you have to keep in mind is that getting wasted doesn't in anyway remove responsibility for your actions. So, whatever happens as a result you will have to pay for it one way or another. It's better to have ...

I liked it. Yes, similar theme. The opening scene really sums it up. This man, Johnny Marco, approaching his mid years is very successful (like Bob was) in Hollywood and he's driving a nice Ferrari on a short round track going around and around and around. The scene is prolonged and you get the sens...

What if Bill and Scarlett were not available for that role?

Hey all...I was just wondering and would like to hear some of your ideas about the following: What if Sophia could not get Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson to play the lead roles? Who can you imagine stepping into these roles? I'll go first. Kevin Spacey & Thora Birch. They were in American Beauty...
