Neil was sadly working yesterday, so I decided to get out of the house and meet some new people and see a film at the same time. It was organised by the Tokyo Movie Lovers group and we met at the Picadilly Cinema in Shinjuku at 2.30pm. I was one of the first ones there and not really sure who to look out for. The guy who organises it, Wye-Khe, said to look out for him, he'll be wearing a cap... I almost accosted the wrong guy! But soon people started to gather and apparently there were 35 of us by the time the film began. We found our seats (the cinema was very comfy) and settled down for the two and a half hour film. I had read bad reviews about it and was actually expecting the worst, but ended up really enjoying it! Apart from the scalping scenes which were pretty graphic! Afterwards we all descended on a local Irish bar called the Dubliners and had a drink and talked about the film. I met some nice people and am hoping to go to another event.
