somebody flies, somebody steals…

Once finished the vision of ‘Planes 2‘ it can be said without fear of contradiction that Dusty is in perfect shape, even after the hardships and dangers of this episode. He went above and beyond what his speedometer obliged it, putting at risk the transmission, passing water, fire and even running the risk of succumbing. Sincere thanks to the entire staff who made the film, to the director Roberts Gallaway and to all the others.


It arrived in Japanese theaters the long-awaited film in live action ‘Lupin III’ (ル パ ン 三世 ‘Rupan Sansei’) derived from the same Monkey Punch’s manga from which they were born, at the time, the daring exploits of the thief most famous in the world, its friends and inspector Zenigata, who always was in hot pursuit of him, achieving poor results.

The role of Arsene Lupin III, a descendant of that Lupin invented for literature by Maurice Leblanc, was portrayed by Shun Oguri, Jigen by Tetsuji Tamayana, while Goemon, Fujiko and Zenigata are relived, respectively, in the interpretations of Gō Ayano, Meisa Kuroki and Tadanobu Asano.

Distributed by Toho, the film sees the characters struggling with the “crimson heart of Cleopatra”, a jewel of inestimable value; the film took four years working and was shooted in Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand.


Al termine della visione di ‘Planes 2‘ si può affermare senza tema di smentita che Dusty è in perfetta forma, anche dopo le peripezie e i pericoli di questo episodio. È andato al di là di quanto il suo tachimetro gli imponesse, mettendo a rischio la trasmissione, superando acqua, fuoco e correndo finanche il rischio di soccombere. Sinceri ringraziamenti all’intero staff che ha realizzato il film, dal regista Roberts Gallaway a tutti gli altri.


È arrivato nelle sale giapponesi il tanto atteso film in live action di ‘Lupin III’ (ルパン三世 ‘Rupan Sansei’), ricavato dallo stesso manga di Monkey Punch dal quale nacquero, ai tempi, le mirabolanti imprese del ladro piú famoso del mondo, dei suoi amici e dell’ispettore Zenigata che sempre gli era alle calcagna, con scarsi riscontri.

Il ruolo di Arsenio Lupin III, discendente di quell’Arsenio Lupin inventato per la letteratura da Maurice Leblanc, è stato interpretato da Shun Oguri, quello di Jigen da Tetsuji Tamayana, mentre Goemon, Fujiko e Zenigata sono rivissuti, rispettivamente, nelle interpretazioni di Gō Ayano, Meisa Kuroki e Tadanobu Asano.

Distribuito dalla Toho, il film vede i protagonisti alle prese con il “Cuore cremisi di Cleopatra”, gioiello dall’inestimabile valore; ha richiesto quattro anni di lavorazione ed è stato girato in Giappone, nelle Filippine, a Hong Kong, a Singapore, in Tailandia.



Planes: what about?

Planes is a pleasant film, without any doubt. One has said it is a spin off, entirely taken by Cars and just moved into the sky and the world of planes rather than auto routes. It is not true: a spin off actually is when the characters (not the protagonists) already were in the previous film and the second one continues in telling their stories.

Planes can seem a sort of reboot, perhaps, cause he actualises the same story of Cars and Turbo and, I admit, moves it in the real story of an agricultural plane born to do something different from what he seemed destined for.

Dusty Crophopper, the star of this film, of course a visionary, is nice and generous; he manages to do his work and to help friends in difficulties, such as the English one that runs the risk to precipitate or the Mexican named “El Chupacabra”  having a 5 evidently put on its rudder (or vertical stabilizer?) that has some pr oblem with love.

Hmm … cars, snails, airplanes … what will be the next level?Wink
