GSC Anime Showcase 2014

Out of the blue I saw this as I browsed the Golden Screen Cinemas website – http://www.gsc.com.my

Malaysian anime fans can get a chance to watch these 3 movies on the big screen!! Some of you might echo my excitement… then again some might not. Some of your might say – “why pay money to watch in the cinema? I just downloaded & watched on my PC” – and I will reply “awesome story bro!” haha. Well there are just 2 things I want to mention about this anime showcase:

1) Because it is screening in the cinema, you can actually get out of the house (away from the PC) + meet up with friends (in the flesh) + have a larger experience of your shared interest!! = ANIME!!

2) Viewing Experience – some folks like watching cinema rip movies, some folks like watching movies on their PC and some like to watch movies the day it opens in the cinema. It’s different strokes for different folks. I appreciate good movies & I appreciate the quality, effort & skill it requires to make one. So I prefer to watch in the cinema… on the BIG screen… in 2D DIGITAL… with Dolby ATMOS (when available). Different strokes for different folks.

For the past 8 years, the only chance Malaysians get to watch any Japanese movie in the cinema is wait for the International Screens selection or my favourite, the ever faithful Japanese Film Festival (ever September), both brought to us by none other than Golden Screen Cinemas. The first Japanese feature film I watch at GSC was Ultraman the Next in 2006 at the JFF – Mid Valley. It was an amazing experience to watch a childhood hero in action on the silver screen. I’ve been visiting & support the JFF ever since. It was very good to see the success of the JFF span to greater heights in 2013 as for the first time it was also held in GSC cinemas in East Malaysia – Sabah & Sarawak.
