Given Movie

Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday'' is a smart sports movie almost swamped by production overkill. The movie alternates sharp and observant dramatic scenes with MTV-style montages and incomprehensible sports footage. It's a miracle the underlying story survives, but it does.

These insights are not startling, but Stone and his actors give them a human face, and the film's dialogue scenes are effective. Al Pacino, comfortable and convincing as Tony D'Amato, a raspy-voiced curmudgeon, tries to coach the Miami Sharks past a losing streak and into the playoffs, and the movie surrounds him with first-rate performances. We're reminded that very little movie material is original until actors transform it from cliches into particulars.

It's a close call here. I guess I recommend the movie because the dramatic scenes are worth it. Pacino has some nice heart-to-hearts with Quaid and Foxx, and the psychology of the veteran coach is well-captured in the screenplay by Stone and John Logan. But if some studio executive came along and made Stone cut his movie down to two hours, I have the strangest feeling it wouldn't lose much of substance and might even play better.

Get ready, Given fans! The popular anime and manga franchise is set to receive another sequel film, following the success of its 2019 TV series and the 2020 anime movie. The new sequel will shine the spotlight on Kashima Hiiragi, the childhood friend of the main character, Mafuyu Satō. The teaser visual was beautifully crafted by the creator of the series, Natsuki Kizu.

The Given Movie takes place where the anime series previously left off. This film sequel follows the band's progress as they work towards a music festival audition. Unlike the anime series, the movie shifted its focus towards a messy love triangle, fuelled by lots of arguments, tears, and sexual tension.

Sigh. I was really excited to watch the Given Movie, so maybe my expectations were set too high for this sequel. Unfortunately, this movie just left me feeling disappointed and unsatisfied. Many of the things that I enjoyed in the original anime series just didn't translate well in the movie sequel.

While the Given Movie is packed with constant drama, most of it feels disjointed and undeveloped. Some plots are suddenly introduced and then abruptly dropped. Other plots go around in tedious circles without much action happening in between. Most of these storylines could have been interesting if executed well, but the movie fumbled and didn't know what to focus on.

The story was all over the place. I feel the quality might have suffered from condensing an entire season of storylines into a single movie. As a result, none of the plots got the focus or development it deserved.

This movie is fuelled by drama instead of romance. A lot of bickering, fighting, and crying, but not enough kissing, flirting, and romancing. I didn't feel engaged in the relationship between Akihiko and Ugetsu or the relationship between Akihiko and Haruki.

Music What music Although the movie's plot was about the band working towards a music festival audition, this felt more like an afterthought. The characters still got together to rehearse, write songs, or whatever, but it didn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

In the anime, Mafuyu's live performance was the emotional climax of the entire series. In the movie, Mafuyu sang another song on stage again, but his performance paled a lot in comparison. This time, his song didn't have the same poignancy or emotional resonance as before. It felt very ordinary, pretty much like the rest of this movie.

Throughout the movie, I couldn't feel engaged with the on-and-off relationship between Akihiko and Ugetsu. Partly it's because their romance barely got any development. I wished they elaborated more on the flashbacks of Ugetsu and Akihiko in their high school days, which seemed interesting. It could've given us more context as to why these two have such deep lingering feelings
