When I saw it in theaters, it was in a “4D” theater so the seats were on some kind of roller coaster simulator track and they sprayed water on you every time water shows up in the movie (which is a lot). The worst part is that it wasn’t even synced with the movie. During the part where they drink tea, the seats were going crazy but when the truck explodes there was no vibration or movement at all.
Hopefully my situation is very uncommon, but it completely ruined my experience with the movie. I’ll have to watch it again without all the “4D” junk
I’m sorry aha but your comment really made me laugh, especially about the chairs during the tea. That’s unfortunate, but look at the positive you got to see it in a cinema (big screen I presume)
This sounds like a nightmare! I can’t even stomach 3D at the cinema. All that stuff feels so superfluous and gimmicky.
I think they’re both good movies, but when it comes to great directors, it’s hard not to compare their new releases to their best work. It’s kind of how people compare Scorsese’s The Irishman with Goodfellas and such.
I personally found Your Name to be better because of the characters. Weathering With You had, at least for me, a very vague and dull protagonist dude. Sure, the same thing could be said about Taki in Your Name, but his actions didn’t really need a backstory. In regards to Hodaka, his evasive personality is barely explained, leaving more to want. Also, I personally wasn’t a big fan of the pacing around the middle of the film.
With all that being said, it was still an above average movie that isn’t bad.
It’s almost unsettling to me because I never knew why Hodaka left his family and then he just went back to finish school.
I liked Weathering With You, but Your Name has put a certain level of standards for me haha. It also gave me “stronger” feelings when I was watching it, like the feelings of losing someone and not being able to see them again were way more overwhelming with Your Name.
Weathering with you is definitely not as good Your Name, personally I preferred the storyline in Your name better as it was a lot more engaging and it had a stronger impact on me. Although, I will say weathering you, of course has amazing art design and some really beautiful scenes (especially more to the end) that were truly impressive. The story itself wasn’t amazing and there were some weak points at the beginning but I still suggest you watch it and experience it for yourself. (Also Taki and Mitsuha make an experience which is veryyy cool)
I personally prefer WWY to YN. I don’t know if it’s the music or the better supernatural element but WWY just feels so much better to me
I just watched this yesterday. I am listening to grand escape right now. 🤣
are eng sub out yet?
