Some things never change: once again the HoAJAS has done lousy publicity for the event:

Awesome catch! Quite a nice selection of movies. It's been a while since I've seen any of them. I hope to go, but it will have to come down to the weather.

Indeed if it wasn't for your post I would have probably missed it again! The Alamo Drafthouse schedule just kills me. So much good to watch & most always on a week night no chance of me making it due to work. Finally on a Sunday!

Perfect Blue: One of my very first anime watched. Sentimental about this sweet touching violent film. I would love to see it on a big screen worth the trip downtown just for that!
Ikiru: Never saw it but for personal reasons might be the most perfect (not blue) film for me to see.
Nausicaä: last & only time I watched this was from a rental at.... Blockbuster. Ha! Ready to see it again.
Battle Royale: A good choice to present but I saw it a while back at the Screenland Crossroads theater. Think I'll pass on this one.

So if anyone wants to carpool from my place let me know. Otherwise see ya there!

Wow, I think I've seen them all. I guess I'm way more worldly than I ever knew!

This year's Japanese Film Festival is going to be so much better! Great films and great venue -- Alamo Drafthouse this time. Nausicaä and Perfect Blue on the big screen sounds really good. Great thing to do on a cold, snowy day anyway!

Maybe a bit off topic but are you hitting Naka-Kon this year deji?

I planned on going, but the snow plus the distance plus the olympics win out this time. Hope they have a good turnout and those that go enjoy the showings.

I was toying with catching a couple before I have to be at dinner tonight but snow could make this a real pain. Damn you Winter!!!!

Well now I don't feel so bad for opting out myself. It's too cold & I stayed up way too late last night watching Tron, Dr. Jin & Soul Eater. Color me tired & lazy today.
