Sekai No Owari- Rain (Mary and the Witch’s Flower)

Just before GKIDS took a long time to get that anime masterpiece in English, this was the band that became famous in the summer of 2017.

Like my previous blog post that I mentioned, this is their real performance. And how they actually support the work of Hiromasa Yonebayashi and his new anime masterpiece, “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”. Studio Ponoc’s first debut masterpiece got the attention of anime fans.

No interruptions are in this performance. Just scenes and clips of that anime movie, while they perform.

Sekai No Owari- Rain (and behind the scene footage on ‘Mary and the Witch’s Flower’)

This Japanese band seems very beautiful. And like Priscilla Ahn, who volunteered on “When Marnie Was There” from Studio Ghibli, this band volunteered for Studio Ponoc on “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”. A new masterpiece from director Hiromasa Yonebayashi. The director of “When Marnie Was There”. In which he was surprised his movie was Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature. But unfortunately, that anime masterpiece lost the Oscar award. No thanks to goddamn a-holes in North America who don’t give a shit.

For this one that he did, based on the book, “The Little Broomstick” by Mary Stewart, tells about a little girl named Mary who finds a mysterious flower that gives her the power to become a witch, which can last for one night only.

So rather than those “Harry Potter” movies, and “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them”, this received $27.4 million in Japan at the box office.

And for this song that they did, this suits very well for this masterpiece. They also performed their song again at a live concert. Also, from that concert, this, and being on the news in Japan, they became stars now. The same for the Japanese cast, who volunteered to be the characters in this new anime masterpiece.

Finally in conclusion, this had been released in Japan on July 8th, 2017. Until later, GKIDS volunteered to distribute this movie in North America. With the voice talents of Kate Winslet and more, the release date for this, is winter of 2017.

So when you listen to this music video, look at the footage of that anime movie, and some behind the scenes from Studio Ponoc. With a live appearance of Hiromasa Yonebayashi himself! And you gotta see this really!! Anime is the best such as this as always! 🙂

Studio Ghibli AMV- Country Roads V2

Like the previous AMV post that I did on Studio Ghibli with this song, this music video is different. Same song, but with scenes from other Studio Ghibli movies that they didn’t added, they did this. 

So, dedicated for the Japanese people and the masterpieces of Studio Ghibli, including Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, here’s ‘Country Roads’. Sang by Olivia Newton-John. 

Eurythmics- Would I Lie To You?

This happened in the Jim Carrey movie trailer of “Liar Liar”. Really good, as this was sung by the Eurthymics. The same band that did ‘Sweet Dreams Are Made of This’, ‘Winter Wonderland’ at Christmas, and ‘Sex Crime (1984)’ from the movie based on the novel by George Orwell.

Not only this occurred in that movie trailer, but was played in a Warner Bros. movie that suits their animation very well. Live action also mostly. “One Crazy Summer” with John Cusack.

Whenever I listen to this song, no one would ever lie to anybody. Or end up like how Jim Carrey did. Cause for what happened to him, made me think he is possessed by the devil. And you would need an exorcist like Leslie Jones to give him lots of holy water, and slapping himself hard in the face by saying these words…

“The power of Leslie compels you!”

 

 

 

 

Vivian Kubrick interview

During an anniversary of the JFK assassination, a legend showed up. And everyone were surprised of her. Composer, dog lover, cameo actress, and daughter of Stanley Kubrick, Vivian Kubrick showed up. She stated that she lives in Dallas, and has saw for what America had done. Especially when that fat pig Trump became the next U.S. President.

Ever since she made a cameo appearance in “The Shining” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”, she changed her hair from brown to ruby red. My mom’s hair is grey-ish like if she’s Mrs. Bates from “Psycho”. But I like hers regular brown when she was younger.

Like me and how everyone else is facing America today, gone insane and not the way it is, we do not appreciate changes in this future.

She still remembers for how Stanley Kubrick was before his death in 1999. For he was extraordinary in film making. And like her father, rescuing animals is a very good deed for her. However if Stanley Kubrick was alive and saw everything, he and Vivian will not appreciate for what movies, TV shows and how America had gotten into. Such as Edward Snowden, threats for the environment and everything. And if Al Gore saw more of this, he would fear the whole Earth would collapse.

That’s why we need to change, and never get into anything that can change lives on this Earth very badly. And for Vivian Kubrick that I was surprised to see, I believed for what she said on everything in this interview.

Studio Ghibli AMV- Country Roads

Studio Ghibli. Best anime studio in the entire world. And thanks to a lucky YouTube subscriber, he/she made this AMV on the hit song we all know of. “Country Roads”. 

Not the John Denver version, but a new version. And as for those Studio Ghibli fans out there, you’ll love this on how Studio Ghibli is, how they deserve many Oscar awards, and how we should really thank them a lot. Anime is the best as I always say. 

Froggy Mix- Razzmatazz

From Froggy Mix, that did the song ‘No Nagging Anymore’ for the anime TV series of “Cardcaptors”, that was once popular on Teletoon, this is another one of their music videos to “Cardcaptors” that I’ve never seen before in my life. 

In fact, they never even showed this on Teletoon. Which is very interesting. Cause mostly they were more into ‘No Nagging Anymore’ by that girl singer and her friends. 

For what showed me here, are the later days in ‘Cardcaptors’ that went from Season 1 or Season 2, to Season 3. On how Sakura and her friends were still dealing with the cards, as well as facing new threats that they might face. 

‘Cardcaptors’ was still glory on Teletoon long ago. And how I appreciate this English version much better than a new English version that some people are making today. Cause for what they showed me here, everything in anime is beautiful. And that will never let you go in your entire life and memories. As long as you still hold onto it. 

Teletoon and YTV still suck today mostly, but for the anime TV shows and anime movies including this that showed us, glory and beautiful. That I appreciate a lot really. 

Frank Sinatra- That Old Black Magic

That time of the most unluckiest day. Even if this happens three times in a year. Friday the 13th. However, as in the words of Frank Sinatra, “It’s that old black magic”. Which is why I found this song, that is very interesting. Telling about bad luck, witchcraft and leading to love, this is very nice. Even if you want to listen to this, on Friday the 13th.

So besides those Friday the 13th TV cartoons on “Ruby Gloom”, “Fairly Oddparents”, and etc. that they did on YTV a while ago, as well as those horror flick movies on that Camp Crystal Lake killer, I prefer this better.


Also, by avoiding black cats that are gonna cross your path…


Going underneath ladders…

Spilled salt as well as trying not to break a mirror, none of that black magic won’t happen to you. For anything that can happen on Friday the 13th.


Such as diesel train wrecks…


Cranes crashing down, killing Alec Baldwin…


Drowning in water slides…

   
And getting into a big mess, as well as they can be worst case scenarios.


Even him when it’s…. “Flame on cocksucker!!”.


Jim Carrey: (sees Steve Carrell on fire) “Okay…”


“Rule out the chicken pox ladies and gentlemen!!”


“Can we get some meltdown here?! Come on!!”

He would deserve that on a Friday the 13th. “That old black magic” as what singer and actor Frank Sinatra would say.

For Auntie Wanda and Uncle Robbie, who love Frank Sinatra music and classic movies. 

Believe (Josh Groban)

This song is so spectacular at Christmas time, its very beautiful and majestic. It’s what made “The Polar Express” movie very popular long ago when it came out. Everyone loved that story. Based on the book by Chris Van Allsburg, dreams become real, as you are taken to a place where anything is possible. To get there, all you had to do, is believe. 

That movie was nominated for three Oscars in the Academy Awards, but this didn’t go for Best Animated Feature. And never won any of those three. 

When I think listen to this, I would imagine myself, with a girlfriend in a beautiful garden on a snowy night which is Christmas Eve, as we would watch the night sky and snowflakes falling. I would also think about those snowy moments from those movies and TV shows I saw long ago. Such as “Wolf Children”, “Balto”, “The Garden of Words”, “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”, “Hamtaro”, “Cardcaptors”, “Pokémon”, “Digimon”, “Pretty Cure”, and a bit more from anime that they are so good, memories are made of this. 

And after those memories, by holding hands together, a kiss would be alright for a romantic moment. So for a spectacular Christmas song, an A++ is what I’m gonna give. 

Finally, as you love this song….. Merry Christmas from osmovies. ❄️❄️❄️❄️

Fred Astaire- Santa Claus is Coming to Town

This was how Justin Bieber, got the idea for his Christmas music video. For that upcoming 2011 animated movie of “Arthur Christmas”.

Like what I said, he is a big fan of that since he saw this as a kid. He loves it, I love this, and so does my friend, Erik Kock. Especially the funny parts that he loves, as he can laugh out loud.

Although Fred Astaire and Mickey Rooney have been dead for many years, we still do love this at Christmas time. We’ll never even forget this at all. As Justin Bieber’s version and this one, are both classic versions, together, I give both an ‘A++’.
