It’s 1982, and Taeko is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. She decides to visit her family in the countryside, and as the train travels through the night, memories flood back of her younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. At the station she is met by young farmer Toshio, and the encounters with him begin to reconnect her to forgotten longings. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko contemplates the arc of her life, and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self.

For me Conor and Bryan were the stars. Although the comedy was a bit lame the actors like Hawtrey, Williams and Monkhouse were so good that they still shone. The basic formula is a bunch of idiots who eventually come good and was used to great effect for the next 20 years. I have them all to watch and am looking forward to a marathon viewing.

Brandon W (de) wrote: The Hangover III is directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, and it stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, and John Goodman in a comedy film about the Wolfpack going somewhere to help Alan (Zack Galifianakis) get better, but things get sudden when Marshall (John Goodman) found them and tells them to find Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) or Doug (Justin Bartha) gets killed. When I heard that the third one was going to be different in terms of plot from the previous films and it's also the last film, I was looking forward to see what they're going to bring, but man was this one bad. The acting is good, and John Goodman can act intimidating as a villain, even he was completely wasted in this as his character wasn't written well. Even though the plot is different, what they put in however, is a complete weak one that felt like it was stretched out. The humor in it wasn't funny, and I didn't laugh even once, which is sad as I found the previous films to be really funny. The movie feels lazy like it's not trying at times in terms of explaining things. Zack's character feels unpleasant as he gets very rude, which is not funny even though the movie said that he's off his medication which worked to its own disadvantage. The only time that I laughed, was the ending because it would've been a funnier set up than this plot, even if it's very similar. With all that said and done, I honestly didn't hate it as I still was abut interested in the film, even though the mystery of it is gone, there were some amusing moments in here, and Melissa McCarthy wasn't bad in it, heck, given with the right material, her character would've been very funny. Even though it's different from the other films, it does feel very pointless and is not a good ending point for the series that it might as well have the same plot as the previous films because at least it'll be funnier than what we got for this.
