I didn't really like Everything's Gone Green - it was fine, but not as good as the rest of the films I saw. Also, I was sitting next to this guy who kept roaring with laughter - really surreal and distracting.

I didn't strongly dislike anything, so in that regard I suppose man push cart was my least favorite. The major plot points were really predictable, and it seemed otherwise like an exaggerated remake of bicycle thieves. It wasn't terrible, but nothing I'd recommend.

i really wanted to like this. japanese kids forming a pop band. sounded like a lot of fun. however-all preformers in film seemed directed to be completely without energy at all times. despite some around me laughing at weak dialogue the only time i laughed was during dream sequence when shadowy figures of the ramones appeared in otherwise empty buddakan hall. film just left me tired although the theme song, when the girls finally lauched into it on stage in last few minutes, was rousing and is now lodged in my brain.
