Cast :
Takeru Sato as Himura Kenshin
Emi Takei as Kamiya Kaoru
Yu Aoi as Takani Megumi 
Taketo Tanaka as Myojin Yahiko
Munetaka Aoki as Sagara Sanosuke
For Movie that makes by adaptation from comic, this movie is very good, I think, because this film is already show the detail about Himura Kenshin story like the manga and anime version. The plot story is also have detail story and logic plot. From the actor and actress of this movie, Takeru Sato is success make him as Himura Kenshin, but I think the cast who have a very suitable face and character is Yu Aoi. Yu success make Takani Megumi character to be one with her own character. I love her more than other character but it's not mean that the other character have a bad acting. Of course NOT! They also success in order to show their character act.  
Here is the trailer of this movie. . .

Although this movie was production in 2012, but I still recommend you to watch this movie for you who like about samurai movie. The other Japanese Samurai or Ninja movie, you may also watch "Shinobi". That the great Ninja film.

Favourite Horror Film

In this post I wanna try to write blog in English (actually I do this for my assignment xixixi). All this time, I use this blog to write about a movie or a drama that I just watch, now I will write about my favourite horror movie, although this movie is not still a booming movie again, but I really love and even never bored when I watch this movie.Okay, let's check this out. . .

The Woman In Black 
Genre : British Horror
Produced : Hammer Film Production 2012
Written by : James Watkins
Directed by : Jane Goldman
Based from the novel 'The Woman In Black' by Susan Hill
Release Date : March, 12, 2012
Starring : Daniel Radcliffe


Synopsis :
This movie tell about Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a lawyer, and the widowed father of four-year-old Joseph in London.  One day he charged by his office to obtain the paperwork with which to sell a large manor – the isolated and desolate Eel Marsh House. Though he is hesitant to leave his son, Arthur's boss warns him that if he fails to complete his duty, he will lose his job. Arthur is treated coldly upon his arrival, barely able to get a room for the night, but he meets a kind local man named Samuel Daily (Ciarán Hinds) and his wife Elisabeth (Janet McTeer), who allow him to stay at their home. Arthur visits his legal contact, Mr. Jerome, who hurries him off, telling him to return to London. Instead, Arthur travels to Eel Marsh House, where he feels he will be able to thoroughly complete his work. While there, he is distracted by odd noises, screams, and the appearance of a woman dressed in black. Believing there was an accident, Arthur reports the incident to the police. Three children come into the police station; two boys carrying their sickly pale sister, Victoria, who had just drunk lye. She collapses in Arthur's arms and dies. The locals angrily state Victoria died because Arthur saw "the woman" at Eel Marsh House.
That night, Sam reveals he and his wife lost their young son in a drowning accident, and Elisabeth, who believes her son speaks through her, carves a figure into the table of someone being hanged, before she is sedated. The next day, Arthur stays overnight at Eel Marsh House to finish his work, and discovers letters from Alice Drablow, the home's recently-deceased owner, and her apparently mentally-disturbed sister Jennet Humfrye (Liz White). Jennet claims Alice stole her son, Nathaniel, away from her by deeming her mentally unfit to raise the child, and demands to let her see him. The letters reveal that the boy drowned in the marsh and that Jennet blamed Alice because she only saved herself instead of Nathaniel. Jennet then committed suicide at the house after stating she will never forgive Alice. Toys begin making noise in Nathaniel's room, where Arthur sees the spirit of the Woman in Black again.
When Arther returns to town, he sees Mr. Jerome's house on fire and rushes in to save Lucy, Mr. Jerome's daughter. Under the influence of the Woman in Black, Lucy sets fire to herself, making it impossible for Arthur to save her.
Arthur learns that the children's deaths are the work of Jennet, who is the Woman in Black; since her own child was taken from her, she takes away every child from the townspeople by causing the children to commit suicide. Whenever Jennet is seen, a child dies. Elisabeth indicates that Joseph, who is coming to the village with his nanny the following day, is a target for the Woman in Black. In an attempt to lift the curse, Arthur hopes to reunite Nathaniel and Jennet and finds the boy's body in the marsh, still in the horse carriage. They place Nathaniel's corpse in Eel Marsh House, where Jennet finds him; it appears to Arthur that she is satisfied. However, she is unable to hold her son, presumably because she can't forgive Alice. Arthur and Sam then place Jennet's son in the grave with her.
The next night, Joseph and Arthur are reunited at the train station and intend to return to London. Arthur sees the Woman in Black on the other side of the platform; Joseph is walking along the train tracks under her influence. It becomes apparent that the curse will never be lifted, and that Jennet will never forgive the wrongs done her. Arthur leaps onto the tracks to save Joseph from an oncoming train. As Sam looks on, horrified, he sees the Woman in Black and the faces of all the children she has taken in the past in the train windows. Once the train passes, Arthur opens his eyes, but the whole station is dark. As Arthur looks around in surprise, Joseph asks, "Who's that lady?" Arthur sees his wife and then smiles before responding, "That's your Mummy." The family then disappears into the fog together. Jennet watches them sadly, then looks at us, and the screen abruptly cuts to black.

The question is 'Why I really like this movie?'. Actually, this movie have many beautiful scene. From the background, place, house, until the artist's costume and, of course, this movie is a horror movie that have logic story that I ever see. The ghost, A woman In black (read : Jennet Humfrey spirit), always be everywhere. This movie success in make me afraid, beside the other horror movie, Dead Silence.
Let's have a look on my favourite scary scene of this film . . .
