But I’m writing this anyways. Appreciate it.
#944. “Yellow Line” by James Shimoji from Redline
Bippety-bop, keep the beat poppin’! This movie is all about style and a unique aesthetic that gives it a mix of hot and cold rhythms. For a movie about racing cars, Redline does a good job of always keeping things feeling like they are going at a breakneck pace and the soundtrack does a great job of keeping that pace going.
#943. “One more time, one more chance” by Masayoshi Yamazaki from 5 Centimeters per Second
GAWD DAMNIT, STOP THE TEARS!!!!!
#942. “Kaneda’s Theme” by Geinō Yamashirogumi from Akira
I like the movie. I really do. But I still feel that it is greatly overestimated. Katsuhiro Otomo’s original manga did so much, while this movie, which doesn’t really capture everything from the manga (it couldn’t possibly have done so with the time constraint) is given so much credit. I’m sure this is mostly due to the fact that it was one of, if not the first anime to come to America and have widespread success.
Despite my thoughts, I still say that I like this movie. This is mostly a combination of art style and atmosphere with the soundtrack. This soundtrack, and this theme music especially, is terrific. It perfectly fills the role of “pace-setting” music. Great music.
#941. “Do You Remember Love?” by Mari Iijima from Macross: Do You Remember Love?
Damn… what a great song. That’s all I can say.
Alright folks, thanks for reading and have a great day.
