Movie Night - YATTERMAN

Join us! We're bringing Japanese movies (with English subtitles) to our hangout at Broadway Coffee! ** Note - the movie starts at 9:45PM, but we will be there at 8 for anyone who wants to show up early to hang out, play some Playstation 3, get some drinks or chat. The cafe we use for this event is being generous with their equipment, time, and space, so if you can help out by buying a tea/coffee/etc. or leaving a tip, I'm sure the owners would appreciate it. ** ===================== Another comedy this time around with the 1970's anime turned live action film, "YATTERMAN".
Movie Trailer Sakurai Sho | Fukada Kyoko | Ikuse Katsuhisa | Kendo Kobayashi In times of peril, at least we still have Yatterman! Classic seventies anime series Yatterman flies to the silver screen in 2009 in a brilliant crime-fighting explosion of candy-colored camp, over-the-top adventure, and pure popcorn entertainment. A fan of the original series, maverick director Miike Takashi stays true to the Yatterman spirit, turning the movie into a larger-than-life live-action spectacle complete with giant robot dog, gratuitous superhero posturing, and barrels of gags and sexual innuendo. Sakurai Sho from popular boy band Arashi and Fukuda Saki from Ghost Friend don jumpsuits as the eponymous superhero duo that concoct robots by day and battle evil by night. Fukada Kyoko (Kamikaze Girls), looking stunning in her character's trademark leather body suit, joins the manic fun as the leader of the film's bumbling trio of villains. Winking to the audience from beginning to end, Yatterman throws pop idols, special effects, musical numbers, kendama duels, cartoon goofs, and robots of all persuasions into one giant whirlpool of straight-faced silliness that's bound to leave a grin on your face. Gan-chan (Sakurai Sho) and his girlfriend Ai-chan (Fukuda Saki) are just normal teens who like to tinker away at robotic inventions - that is, when they're not out keeping the world safe from evil! Along with their do-all robotic sidekicks, the inseparable duo moonlight as the crime-fighting team Yatterman, waging battle against perennial nemesis, the Doronbo gang. Formed by sexy villainess Doronjo (Fukada Kyoko) and her lackeys Boyacky (Namase Katsuhisa, Gokusen), and Tonzra (Kobayashi Kendo, BOSS), the Doronbo trio will stop at nothing to recover the powerful wish-granting Skull Stone, but they'll have to get past Yatterman first! ヤッターマン 出演 : 櫻井翔/福田沙紀/生瀬勝久/ケンドーコバヤシ/岡本杏理/阿部サダヲ/深田恭子/滝口順平(声の出演)/山寺宏一(声の出演)/たかはし智秋(声の出演) 監督 : 三池崇史 1977年から放送されたメカ&ギャグ・アニメ「ヤッターマン」は、「タイムボカン」シリーズでトップの人気を誇る、国民的ヒット作。ドロンボー一味とヤッターマンの戦いを、コテコテのギャグ満載で描いたドタバタ・アクションで、番組内に登場した『ブタもおだてりゃ木に登る』というギャグも人気を博した。 本作は、櫻井翔&福田沙紀を主演に迎えて贈る、愛と冒険、そして禁断の恋を織り交ぜて描く実写版。「タイムボカン」シリーズの影の主役とも言える"悪玉トリオ"を、生瀬勝久・ケンドーコバヤシ・深田恭子が好演したことでも話題になった。監督は、日本が誇る鬼才・三池崇史。原作アニメでおなじみのユニークなメカたちも実物大で登場しているほか、キメゼリフや勝利のポーズも完全再現されている。 本作には、総括トークやメイキング対決などが収められたスタンダードDVD版特典ディスクが 2枚封入されている。 現代の地球のどこか。「ヤッターマン」の1号と2号は、今日も『4つ揃うと願いが叶う』というドクロストーンをめぐって、ドロンボー一味と死闘を繰り広げていた。考古学者の海江田博士もドクロストーンの虜になったひとりで、ドクロストーンのひとつを娘に託したまま行方不明になってしまう。そんななか、世界各地で『さまざまな場所から大事な物が次々に消えていく』という怪現象が発生し…。 ===================== One of the most entertaining ways to appreciate Japanese culture is through its cinema. In America, this is usually confined to two or three people huddled around a DVD player or computer. Instead, we'd like to share and enjoy this experience with a room full of Japanese enthusiasts. Our setup is enviable. Our host at Broadway Coffee has offered us the use of his whole cafe after it closes, as well as his powerful, world-class sound system, which we'll then be hooking up to our projector. In other words, we can actually enjoy these movies as they were meant to be seen - on a big screen, with audio that fills up the whole room. :)
