    Summer Wars (Movie) Outing

    Post by mazatsushi on Tue Jan 12, 2010 10:37 pm

    At long last, one of 2009's top anime movies, Summer Wars, is coming to cinemas here in Singapore! I'd rather have The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi, Nanoha Movie 1st or Unlimited Blade Works, but that's another issue.

    Directed by Hosoda Mamoru, the very same director who gave us Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo / The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, this is one movie that should not be missed by any self-respecting otaku (other than Eva 2.0).

    The movie itself also has numerous accolades to its name:
    1) Animation Film Award at 64th Mainichi Film Awards
    2) Award of Excellence (Animation Category) in Animation at 33rd Japan Academy Prizes
    3) Grand Prize (Animation Division) at 13th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards
    4) Gertie aka highest possible award (Anima't section) at Sitges Film Festival

    There will be a club mini-outing to see this movie on its release weekend.

    R2 DVD release for this movie will be coming out in Match. But expect quality rips and translations to be out closer to April / May.

    Ticket prices will be SGD$10 per ticket since it will be a weekend. Unfortunately no price discounts for either Cathay E-Pass or LinkPoints related cards.

    ah...the movie is great...won't say anything else this time abt it, but if it can get more ppl to join us for the movie outing,...

    "IT'S LIKE A SUPER ADVANCED VERSION OF FACEBOOK!"

    ...thats all i'll say...

    (u can sort of see that in the trailer already so its not really a spoiler...comparable to facebook with movable avatars like .hack//)

    Yeah, apparently the movie explores the impacts of social networking rather deeply.

    It is official! Cathay has finally revealed that the movie will officially open in less than 2 weeks time, on 21 Feb 2010!

    Outing date has been adjusted to the opening day. It also happens to be the start of the Recess Week as well (very nice timing).

    This will be the final call for anyone who is still considering whether or not to join us (anyone from VAS is welcome). Please reply and leave your real/forum name here if interested.

    Alternatively, you can send a SMS to 9111164-Eight or send an email to mazatsushi[@]gmail[dot]com to indicate your attendance & available timings.

    Forgot to add, those who have already confirmed attendance please also indicate your preferred timings.

    In the very unfortunate that you are not able to attend, please do inform so that your name can be removed from the list.

    BAH! My bad, I screwed up by looking at last year's academic calendar.

    The recess week officially starts 27 Feb 2010 to 7 March 2010.

    As such, the outing date has been finalized to 27 Feb 2010. The exact timing for meeting up will be confirmed as well by next week once Cathay releases the screening schedules.

    That is always possible, but our legendary shadow chair would be unable to join us.

    Or would you rather have an outing without him?

    Again, if there are more people who'd want to go on week days, you guys just go ahead without me. It's not like I must be around to officiate every outing.

    This is one thing I can agree with you despite our disagreements over almost everything else.


    Also, as the outing date has been finalized don't expect any changes. Hope this will allay anyone's worries.
