Smash the Capital, Join the Country: Godzilla Gains Japanese Citizenship
You may think that the last thing you’d want to do with a monster famed for smashing up your country is make him a permanent resident, but whoever said the movies or fandoms made sense?

Usually I’d spend the afternoon trying to start writing up coverage for work in a cold corner of some coach or train station, praying that my battery doesn’t run out too soon and leave me bored and alone in the capital.

Norwegian Wood Review

Norwegian Wood Review
Sometimes there are films that you will watch with an open mind and come out of the cinema feeling you had watched a fair film. But often those films are cleverer than they look, leaving you mulling over the characters and the plot. On occasion, the film might not have been the most enjoyable, but the cinematography may have been something to marvel. Japanese film Norwegian Wood is a classic example. Based on Haruki Murakami’s bestselling novel...
