  • Review: Gyo Tokyo Fish Attack | tomjupiter
    at home The shark you see has sharp metal legs It crashes around the house injuring Erika It seems that fish amongst a myriad of other sea creatures have somehow developed these legs and are attacking Japan What starts as a small isolated incident quickly escalates into a national emergency as thousands if not millions of fish sharks even whales make their way onto land Kaori travels to Tokyo in an attempt to find her beloved while Erika and Aki stay at the holiday home The characters are basically riffs on the standard horror victims although the relationship between Erika and Aki develops in a darker way than I would have perhaps expected and the film manages to avoid some of the tired cliches The animation is great with what seems to be a mixture of basic cell animation or a digital version thereof and some more CGI heavy moments It s clear good looking and has a great sense of scale at times Gyo Tokyo Fish Attack repeats many of the themes apparent in Japanese creature features since Godzilla Themes which are perhaps more relevant now than for many years Monsters death and destruction climbing out from the ocean There are many scenes from high above where the thousands of creatures look like a flood filling the streets reminiscent of footage from the recent tsunami The potential for bad science Which is even traced back to WWII the same age as the atomic weapons that bred Godzilla is also touched on The sense of danger panic and emergency is tangible and it is perhaps this that lifts the film from being a basic monster film There does seem to be more going on in Japan than just the story we re following with our protagonists The monstrous here though

  • HK15 - Three films to look out for! | tomjupiter
    reversal takes place Roger becomes the care giver trying his best to help the spirited and self sufficient Ah Tao as her body begins to deteriorate I saw this film at last year s London Film Festival and cannot wait to see it again The performances by both actors are wonderful Ip won the best actress award at Venice Film Festival they bring such warmth and affection to their roles and the perhaps unlikely relationship between the characters is totally believable The story is incredibly sweet but never becomes mawkish there is plenty of humour and if you re not at least close to tears by the end you need to go and find your misplaced soul One Armed Swordsman July 7 th 8 45 Produced by the Shaw Brothers 1967 s One Armed Swordsman is a seminal film of the wuxia genre After his father Fang Cheng gives his life to defend the master of The Golden Sword School Fang Kang now orphaned is taken in by the school s master as an act of gratitude In a conflict with his hostile fellow students Fang Kang loses an arm and is forced to leave the school Xiao Man a peasant girl nurses him back to health and helps him develop a new style of one armed sword fighting Through determination he hones his skills to a level at which he may be able to aid his former master in the face of a dangerous threat Considered by many critics to be a turning point within the wuxia genre moving away from the dramatic theatrical style to a grittier bloodier aesthetic influenced by Japanese samurai films One Armed Swordsman is a must see on the big screen Big Blue Lake July 9 th 6 15 Jessey Tsang Tsui Shan bases
