Japanese Film Festival 2014 Malaysia movie reviews


Japanese Foundation KL didn't put me in the loop for this year's Japanese Film Festival (JFF) Malaysia but Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) were very kind to help get me the details and took the trouble to pass me a few complimentary passes to catch some of the films. It's going to be over soon in Klang Valley, but for those in Penang, Sabah and Sarawak, be ready 'cause JFF 2014 will be making its stop there soon!

ONE FC 20: Moraes wins Flyweight title, head stomps spark controversy

Inaugural ONE FC Flyweight Champion Adriano Moraes & Victor Cui ONE FC 20 Rise of Kingdoms Cambodia

ONE FC: Rise of the Kingdom - Adriano Moraes crowned inaugural ONE FC World Flyweight Champion, head stomp incidents force unfamiliar refereeing decisions


History has been made again for the ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC). Held at the Koh Pich Theater in Phnom Penh, this marked the first ONE FC event in Cambodia which featured the first ever ONE FC World Flyweight Championship bout. From what I read, it's been a night of mostly first rounders besides the the main event and co-main event, both of which finished in the second round. No idea why it wasn't broadcast live outside of that country but fortunately, some of the fights were uploaded to YouTube.

Movie Review: Initial D Legend 1: Awakening (2014)

Initial D Legend 1 Awakening 2014 movie still AE86 Trueno

New Initial D the Movie Legend 1: Awakening offers hastened retelling of the anime, with race sequences in 2D absent Eurobeat


Initial D - perhaps one of the most iconic manga/anime titles of all time, the one that's responsible for gaining mainstream interest on street car drifting, is rebooted into this full-featured animated film... well, sort of. This supposed "movie" is split into three parts, with this one, Legend 1: Awakening, to be the first third of it. That explains why its running time is only 60 minutes long (it's actually lesser than an hour) but it doesn't quite justify it being released to big screens with regular pricing for the tickets. But if you're an old fan like myself, seeking for a nostalgic retelling of the story, action and mild "ecchi", I guess you wouldn't mind it that much.

Movie Review: The Maze Runner (2014)

Maze Runner movie still

Intriguing premise keeps this teen-targeted film watchable for those who're not too curious


WARNING: This review contains spoilers until the summary at the bottom.

Based on the young-adult novel of the same title by James Dashner, The Maze Runner is about a group of kids who're placed in the centre of a humongous maze they call Glade, thus making the kids "Gladers". Every month, each one of them is brought up there unconscious by a strange controlled elevator that comes with supplies and when they wake up, they'd remember nothing other than the language they speak, and eventually, their names, but only that. The Gladers who've been there for years came up with rules and jobs to survive and co-exist. The only hope that keeps them going are the Runners, who're assigned to go into the maze every day and map it until they could find a way out one day. However, the thick doors of the maze only open in the morning, and closes when the sun goes down, and nobody ever survived a night in the maze as the "Grievers" lurk in the dark to hunt for their prey. Their venomous stings cause infected victims to lose control of their minds and become very dangerously aggressive.
