    Cleopatra (1970)

    The second Animerama film by Tezuka, while it is certainly an improvement to a thousand and one nights it does have similar problems with it's predecessor. Three people from the future are sent back to the era of Cesar. Each of them are sent into the bodies of Cleopatra's companions to fully experience Cleopatra's life.

    Like a thousand and one nights it is a fun watch from a visual standpoint. It experiments with it's art style and colours that looks good for the most part and when it doesn't (like the real people with rotoscoped heads) I can still appreciate it for trying something new. It plays with references quite a bit of anime such as gegege no kitaro, Astro boy and some others I didn't recognise, the astro boy one in particular it caught me so off guard by how out of nowhere it was.

    The plot itself is not as scattershot as the last one. It manages to keep it's focus on Cleopatra 90% of the time which is leagues better than a thousand and one nights. While it is bizarre enough to keep my attention it still shouldn't be 2 hours long. Like the other Animerama films this is targeted towards adults and was even called cleopatra Queen of sex in America. I don't think that that title was needed since there's just nudity, a sex scene and a couple of jokes about a leopard wanting to bang cleopatra instead of just hard-core porn that the title made me think it would be.

    Check this out if you're interested. If you don't want to see a weird movie when nice visuals I'd go for something else.

    ok clients cancelled so I had time and finished Captain America

    and like it wasn’t bad, but a bit ridiculous at times (but I suppose that comes with this genre?? idk) 

    but like with all films, I have a problem with connecting to supporting characters. Was I supposed to be sad when his BFF died when he was in the film for like 5 minutes flirting with girls?

    Even the romance is basically just main guy and a girl = together. Just because everyone assumes that they will be together, there’s no development, just a few glances, a few scenes together. Maybe it’s just me needing to have an emotional connection to the characters first, but telling isn’t enough for me. (And I did enjoy Steve/Carter, I’m just saying that because of the nature of films, it’s just build on they meet, they fall in love, and viewers accept it because that’s how it works, and it isn’t really enough for me anymore. Used to be when I was younger, though.)

    That said, I had small tears in my eyes during the last “dance conversation” (because my brain was basically like they kissed, stop questioning the chemistry or development and enjoy whatever comes)

    Anyway, we’ll see how it goes with other films :D Since now I have a strong connection to one character :D (and half connection to Tony because of my tiny glimpses of Civil War :D Which is actually funny because making a connection to his father was made easier because of that, and I know Steve’s BFF was also in Civil War, I just did not pay enough attention, I am shallow and did not like his long hair)

    I made a mistake of not writing down what I felt about AOS, except for “finished AOS 1, didn’t like Spock because Peck’s set the bar high. love mccoy&kirk” LMAO so I want to look back at how I felt once I’ll be more emotionally connected. (I’m comparing to AOS because those were basically the last films I watched that weren’t christmas romance films :D And like I would love to read my “????????????? kirk and spock aren’t even friends  ????????????????” thoughts i know I had :D but also other thoughts i had about stid before i read/listened to other people’s opinions that probably turned me a bit negative and now I have no desire to rewatch stid again)

    then again, I hope I’ll just watch the films, read a few fics (if i manage to find anything that would fit my taste because the bigger the fandom the harder it gets), and forget about mcu :D I need to finish my spones wip and not get distracted by something else (I say despite wishing to find something else to get into for many months lol)

    Anyway, I enjoyed the film :D Avengers next!

    #Leni's nonsense #please just note that i still know nothing about these films or characters. the only thing i know comes from this film i finished #i only know that people like ship steve's bff with someone from like a new generation or something??? and that's it #i also know that people love loki (but i was aware of loki because i love his japanese VA therefore watched a couple of dubbed scenes #years ago #and when people reblog gifs he's hard to miss because of his getup #i still don't even know what's this group of superheroes and what's the other one :D #it does not help that when i glimpse stuff on tv the guy who's voicing steve also voices chris pine who i think is in the other superheroes #films? so i'm very confused LOL #also i'm treating watching these films as a form of easy entertainment

    An example of how Western (mostly American) critics/fans tend to be on a completely different tangent from the source material as a result of their own customized take on Euro-centrism :

    The above screenshots are from a popular American site dedicated to cinema. The film being discussed here is called 'Gohatto' directed by Nagisa Oshima, one of the pioneers of Japanese New wave cinema, one of the most superior film makers in the world, staunchly dedicated to his craft. The film is based on a story in which a beautiful young gay boy joins an elite Samurai school (Shinsengumi) and unwittingly creates havoc amongst fellow samurais, young and old, who desire him and want to seduce him.

    And here are a few excerpts from a well researched article on the same film, written by an informed film critic.

    And this gap in information, comprehension and historical context shows when they talk about other things as well, including homosexual content. It's a pandemic. Sigh.

    Attack no. 1 the movie (1970)

    The first sports anime and the first shoujo anime on the list, I'm honestly not versed in either since I usually just watch shounen stuff. A new girl in the school, who is sort of a delinquent and her friends ends up going against the volleyball team so they have a match together to prove there skills. After this match they join with the volleyball team. The next segment a different transfer student starts to sabatage and manipulate the team so that she can become captain. It gets so bad that the teachers intervene making one of the professors the coach.

    I despise the coach, he has this awful mentality you see in sports (at least from my pe teachers) where he works them to the ground until they either give up with the best remaining or rally together against the coach. I would grit my teeth and bare it if they didn't keep insisting that the coach was a great guy that everyone loved so he gets big Kamoshida vibes but without the payback.

    The plot is a little rushed but the movie is clips of the anime put together so I can excuse that. Besides that this is a pretty average anime for the time watch it if you want but there are probably better sports anime out there.

    The list

    i wonder if non-american film industries were like. shaped by never having been hunted down by thomas edison’s goons

    #i mean they were Definitely shaped by never having been wiped out in a world war #this is one of the reasons why the modern film world is so america centric #film was a fairly borderless community in the 1900s and then wwi wiped out almost all the film industries except for america’s #and then over the next couple decades the other countries got back on their feet #a few more (russia and china etc) get film industries up and running #and the guess what happens #another fuckin world war #china’s film center gets dismantled by the occupying japanese and germany’s gets put to evil use and then dismantled by the occupying allies #(those are the two non american film traditions i’m most familiar with but similar things happen elsewhere) #and meanwhile america hasn’t had war on its soil in just under a century and its film industry is chugging along just fine #fast forward another half a century and non american industries are JUST BARELY catching up in terms of profit #ryddles
