I love Anthony Hopkins since the movie “Hannibal”.
He is actually in his 80s means he is actually living life just like this movie. And,
This is about dementia
He reminds me of my dad
My dad was Parkinson’s disease, and he was having some symptoms of dementia too. He died at the age of 73 so I don’t know what it’s like if he is still here and lived in his 80s. I wanted to learn that through the movie.
It’s on my Amazon prime watchlist. First, it is a serious theme for me at least, I need time and space to be immersed in the story.
Have you watched? If you have, I’d be thankful hearing from you for what you thought about. Or if you are interested in, what interests you?
So I searched again, then found Mil Máscaras. This wrestler is also one of my brother’s favorites.
We went watching a wrestling match when we were small. I still can recall a theme song of Mil Mascaras, probably he remembers it as well.
Amazon delivered the T-shirt on time, and today I gave it to my brother. He was happy, I’m happy too.
When he talks about pro wrestling his eyes are shining like a boy.
It is maybe because I’m no longer young, my attitude towards my family has changed and changing in a good way.
We all have different likes and dislikes, when I think about pro wrestling I would not go watching it but I respect my older brother’s passion so I listen to him.
Also my mom loves Odori/Nihon-Buyou, a Japanese traditional art similar to Kabuki. I have no interest at all, but she likes so it’s okay and I’ll listen to her when she wants to talk about it, or give a ride when she goes to theater.
Even among family there are things I don’t really get, however I’ll accept and listen to them. I’m happy to see them being happy.
When I was young and stupid I was like “I’m not interested” or “I don’t know what is so interesting”. I regret now that I have missed a lot of opportunities to learn about what my family thought or wanted to share with me.
Their feelings and emotions.
Anyway, I’d enjoy rest of my life, accepting many things whether that’s my taste or not.
My partner and myself enjoy golf, my mom and my brother don’t care.
I jog my brother says “what is the point of jogging?”, just laughs away.
Grandma once told me, when you get older every day just fly away. Sun rises and sun goes down very quickly. Back then I was in my 30s, always busy, rushing around, not much time to think about it. Understand that now.
Cats napping all day and night, rarely stay sitting longer than minutes. walking but heading straight to a meal plate, or searching a place to sleep.
When stroking they look satisfied and happy, we are happy too.
On Sunday, we went to movies. I really wanted to watch “Elvis” in theaters, as there must be great sound effects, also in theaters there is no distraction.
These days it’s hard to focus on movies at home, streaming is convenient but it also allows too much control, skip, fast forward, pause and stop watching in the middle. I have many movies in “continue watching”.
The film was 2 hours 39 minutes long but felt not long, there was no unnecessary scene, all of them explained or described something important.
It was made understandable, songs were great, and replication of stage performance were more than imagined.
All songs were the original ones, the actor was lip syncing but looked like he was actually singing. From some point I started looking at him as Elvis.
And Tom Hanks was invisible, he was a big greedy manager of King of Rock and Roll. I became hate him.
I don’t know if Tom Hanks has ever acted such self-centered, tricky, exploiting, and obsessed with moneymaking character.
I’ve read wiki, and learned the life of Elvis for some extent. After watching it it made it more sad story. Sad.
We listened to “If I can dream” after the movie. It’s simply overwhelming.
My partner has never listened to Elvis until he watch the film, now he became a big fan of Elvis, he is listening “If I can dream” and “Unchained melody” every night.
Hope I can go theaters again, good movies have many aspects and full of unspoken contexts, I like watching the same movie again and again, it’ll never be faded.
We are all going to die someday but not necessary to be killed by firearm.
Really. As Japanese I have been thinking I’m safe, live in the safest country in the world.
Japan’s safety is secured based on moral, we trust each other, actually we give each other unspoken pressure; do not do illegal act, do not give any trouble to your family, think about how to be seen by others. Maybe those sense are going, we are losing our moral.
It’s flipped upside down. The former prime minister Shinzo Abe had been shot and died.
Just like the suspect did, anyone can have a firearm, it can be made at home if you have an access to the necessary materials to manufacture it.
What a convenient world we are live in, what a scary world it is at the same time.
IF there is no firearm many people were still alive.
