I haven't even seen Transformers yet (it doesn't come out until the end of the month here), but I seem to be the only person I know completely obsessed with the amazing trailer that played before it (In the US only, to my knowledge. I hope they play it here too!).

Cloverfield? Or not.. But whatever it is, I heard about the trailer, watched it, and became immediately obsessed. I LOVE stories like this. Monster attacks on the city, but played as if it's real and not just a movie/story. And with the internet media all playing like it's real as well (1-18-08.com, Slusho.jp) I think that I'm going to get really obsessed. It's like the Blair Witch Project all over again. Oh man, I remember all of the stuff behind that movie, and all of the secrets hidden within the second one, the dossiers, history books, and the internet media that played as if it was real. I got really, really into it, and just fell completely into the story and events around it.

011808 is going to become a lot of fun, I do believe. ♥ Godzilla x The Blair Witch Project x War of the Worlds (the sounds!!). I can't wait!! Anybody else with me on this, or will I have to spazz alooone?

Doesn't it?!?!!!! =D
It didn't play before Transformers for you? Oh man, that doesn't give me good hopes about Japan!! *crosses fingers*

Ah, I can't say too much about it. But my stepdad is really excited about it...in an almost fangirlish way? XDD -more obsessed about HP at the moment even though it's gotten past my favorite book- I think a lot of people are really hyped up by the Transformers movie though! I hear tons of my friends and other people completely flip over the trailer. I watched the trailer and it looked cool... Makes me wonder if Gundam ever got big if it's be as complex as the mecha in Transformers (except Transformers are cars that turn into super robots..XDD). ^^

Yeah, they're going to turn Tokyo Big Site into a giant robot for the Japanese premiere of Transformers, I hear. I think that I'm going to go and take a look myself. =D

I've heard that the page that you're linking to is fake. It seems pretty obvious when looking at it too.

Everyone here in the states is going crazy for this preview, it was the reason I'm seeing transformers, twice! XD. But thanks for that awesome google video link, that's the best I've seen on the net!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2007 02:58 am (UTC)
That's awesome to hear! So it's not just me =D
I was so confused, because I hadn't seen a single thing about it on my friends list, and my fl people are usually some of the first to jump on things like this. =D

Oh you SO know that I'm into this. You remember how much of a Blair Witch freak I was don't you?

Anyway, I'll probably try to keep up with this stuff but I don't know if my brain will remember to keep me going. Heh.

Any there is no "supposedly" about the trailer in the US. It was set to premiere with TF and it did.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2007 05:02 am (UTC)
I knew that you would be all over this, too. ^o^ I still remember the Blair Witch days, and looking through the second movie for the extras at you, K&J's place. Ahhh those were the days!

I'm probably going to let the people in the community search for new things, and I'll just check out their findings. I don't have enough time to do it myself, but I really want to keep abreast of what's going on!

I haven't seen Transformers either, but I think my problem is just getting there. ^-^;

And that trailer. *o* It does look really interesting!!! I was already mentally saying "WHAT IS IT!" along with the running people on the streets. XDD;;;

Soo, I may just be on the wagon with you with the obsession. xDDD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2007 01:11 pm (UTC)
We can be excited about it together!! ^___^

I saw Transformers... twice already! O.O The plot wasn't all that great, but hearing Optimus Prime on surround sound.. GUH! that was fantastic, and that movie took me back to my childhood *le sigh* I hope you like it as much as I did ^_^

I saw that trailer twice and is so freaking intriguing! I just went to that site EthanHaasWasWrong and I just did all the puzzles! O.O yeah I had to! now I guess I gotta wait?! *bites nails* this is so freaking interesting!!!!!!!!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2007 01:12 pm (UTC)
Same!! I love media tie-ins like this!! And even more so the fact that it's "real". That's one of the things that I like best about movies-- if I can imagine that they're real.
Yuviyuvi on July 9th, 2007 03:02 am (UTC)
Isn't great? I can't wait to August 1st and see what happens.

Ugh. Combining the painful camera work of Blair Witch (let's not even begin to discuss just how bad the story was) with the memories of the last American Godzilla movie....

BURN IT NOW. And kill J.J. Abrams for doing something this stupid.

Sorry, even the trailer you linked to was enough to make me reel in the lack of talent that will be contained in that movie.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2007 01:13 pm (UTC)
LOL Obviously we're at completely different ends of the spectrum here. Sorry in advance to put you through all kinds of squealing that I'll be writing as the pieces of the puzzle come together. ^^;;
Patricktallanvor on July 8th, 2007 03:16 pm (UTC)
So long as you put up with me commenting on plotting his death whenever you squeal about it. :)

I just saw the movie a few days ago and it's unbelievable. I'm still gushing about it!

Atashi mo modoritai na~. T.T Tokyo wa totemo kirei na basho nanda..... *has only been there once*



I have to focus on finishing my degree here first, then I swear I will LIVE and WORK in Tokyo. I swear. I will FIND A WAY. ._____. Houhou ga aru hazu nanda. *nods to self*

Soredemo urayamashiiiiiiiiiiiiii~.


Hoyea, you must be weirded out already by the new drop-in stranger in your pocket. ^^;;

Kia-chan deeesu~! Yoroshiku ne~. I found you at, err, some community.... hehe, wasurechatta. ^^;; Gomen, gomen. Anyway, I wanted to make friends. Yeah. *fLomP*

Jamie-san wa sugoku omoshiroi hito mitai nandakara aitakatta. XD (If there's something wrong with my Nihonggo, bash me.)

Anyway, I'm currently in the US, but I've been to Tokyo once, and it was VERY pretty there. I want to go back and try seeking a life and work over there. I'm a big anime fan too, though I AM your junior for... ehh, let's not get into the numbers, but I AM your junior, and that's a fact.

Anyway, erm... what else? I'm in college, I love anime/manga, I'm totally AWED by your art skills (*skimmed your journal and saw pictures*) which I totally do NOT have, I have a cat about the same age as yours and he's just as adorable... I write fanfiction because that's just about the only way I can release stress through and from anime, I absolutely die for J-music and J-culture, and NO, I am not American, I'm Filipino. And proud.

Uhh.... I basically just rattled off the basics. ^^;;

Hn, ja, atashi ima iku ne~! Sorosoro neteru hazu nandakara na... *yawn*

Hon.. this has nothing to do with this post, but I just saw THIS The site for the contest is HERE. Have you ever heard about this?

I totally think you should enter! I mean.. you should be able to.. you are a foreigner to them, you just live in Japan. I think it would be a wonderful opportunity!

hey! I was just looking for some more lj friends who are interested in Japan.
I've never been there before but hope to be able to make it there someday (in the next couple of years hopefully :P)

I know a couple of people who have been there, and who are currently there. Was wondering if I could add you, your journal entries are very interesting :)
