So we have come to the penultimate review of No-English Moviember, unless someone suggests another film to review which will be good in that people want me to do more, but bad as it will make the phrase “penultimate review” a complete fabrication.
So we have traversed the halfway point of this review series and have also traversed halfway across the world for our next film of No-English Moviember. I hope that you enjoy this review of the Japanese drama film Okuribito (English: Departures).
Hello there and welcome to the inaugural post of No-English Moviember! This has been plaguing me for months and to finally have the chance to do it is absolutely wondrous. Not only that, but I get to kick off this month with a review of one of the best animated films to come out in recent years, the French-Belgian comedy-drama Ernest et Célestine.
Hello to all my fellow Chroniclers out there. I just decided to pop by and let you all know about something that is coming up for The Chronic Chronicler which I hope you will all be looking forward to.
So I think we can all certainly say The Crimson Field is definitely getting a second series and if it doesn’t, well then it has ended light but ended with many questions left and many stories to tell.
Before we get into this, I’ll just say that this review will, I repeat WILL, have spoilers in. It’s the very last episode and if you are not caught up on the series by now then why are you reading a review of the last episode? That aside let’s get into this review!
Let’s start with Kathryn Trevelyan (Oona Chaplin) and Thomas Gillan’s (Richard Rankin) relationship story-arc. It finally happens. They kiss. Now don’t you feel bad about not watching the episodes before I told you that? Well you shouldn’t really as, for those who’ve been watching it; you’ll know that their relationship has not always been brilliant to watch. In fact at times it plays out more of the boring screen time compared to the other story lines going on.
Well it’s the penultimate episode so it’s pretty damn obvious that things are going to happen for our main protagonists that’ll happen for the next episode, but this episode ranks as good, if not a little bit better than the last episode.
So here we go with the obligatory overview. The commander of a Sikh regiment, Major Jocelyn Ballard (Peter Sullivan), arrives at the hospital and it soon transpires that he would rather be with his men than at rest within the calm sanctuary of the wards. It is only when Matron Grace Carter (Hermione Norris) reveals her knowledge of the Punjabi language, does the Major appear to calm. Yet there is more to both stories than merely the Punjabi language, with unanswered questions and a lingering soldier, Private Gorman (Jason Maza), making the situation more complicated and dangerous.
Hello there! So I’m guessing you’ve seen my sporadic posts since going into hiatus, that or you’ve been reading Dragonball Evolution – Devolved, Dreadful, Don’t Wish Back since there doesn’t seem to be a day without at least one to ten views for that article.
Seriously, at the time of writing the Dragonball article has 335 views (my most read article by a country mile) with one like and three comments (one of which is me). I always find it a bit weird my far and away most read thing has so little feedback on it and, strangely, is the source of most of my French readership. I never knew the French were such enthusiasts on my work on that abysmal film.
