These movies had me go, "fuck it! I can't hold it in front of you people anymore". They got me…
Hachi: A Dog's Tale
A true story of faith, devotion and undying love.
A drama based on the true story of a college professor's bond with the abandoned dog he takes into his home.
Although it suffers from being overly sentimental & comes off as emotionally manipulative on few occasions, Hachi: A Dog's Tale still qualifies as an affectionately crafted tearjerker that has a lot of warmth, cuteness & heart but purely from a story perspective, all it tries to do is to force its viewers to fall in love with its premise by using their sensitivity for a cute dog as its strength & eventually succeeds.
Based on a true story of the now legendary Japanese dog named Hachikō & his well-known loyalty to his master, Hachi: A Dog's Tale is the Americanised version of the same story & concerns an abandoned dog who is found at a train station by a local professor; who takes him home…
This is the true incident which provoked me to experience this beautiful, true tale of love, again.
This past Sunday afternoon was the usual. It was bright, sunny and cheery. I satiated myself with the sumptuous lunch that Mother had prepared despite being a bit unwell. It was as always divine and extremely satisfying. I was totally stuffed and once I had finished my ravishing meal, I started to feel drowsy. I had planned to watch David Lynch's Inland Empire and with a determination not to fall asleep; I lethargically climbed up the staircase and reached my AV room. I locked the door and started to make arrangements. Once I had switched off all the lights and had set everything…
Forced to re-watch the film because I didn’t have control of the remote, I actually rather enjoyed this sentimental and manipulative weepy a second time around. Maybe I’m becoming a big softy in my old age but it’s actually quite a sweet story and it’s hard not to fall in love with the dog.
I cried like a silly boy. My pillow was soaking wet, and I really miss my dog, even tho she bites me when I pet her.
This is one of those cute dog doing cute things type movie where not much else happens. They are the sort of films that have ridiculously high IMDb scores as any rational opinions about the film goes out of the window because there is a big fluffy dog on screen. Even being the heartless bastard that I am it is hard not to warm to such an adorable dog yet there does become a point where you start to look for some semblance of a story.
This is a well produced film, basically an American (well Japanese) version of Greyfriars Bobby, about a sweet dog and his bond with its owner but beyond a couple of moments that is all…
Este remake de la película de 1987 del mismo nombre (la original no la he visto) es un film conmovedor e impactante que cuenta una historia real que es increible que lo sea. Para mí el máximo ejemplo de que el perro es el mejor amigo del hombre en el cine. La fotografía está bien, la música es encantadora, el timing es bastante bueno pero te llega a abrumar en alguna partes en las que pasa el tiempo demasiado rápido y te hace querer que pase más despacio, las actuaciones cumplen y la historia llega. Nada más se le puede pedir. Una experiencia muy gratificante y perfecta para cualquiera que le gusten los animales o las historias sobre lealtad y amistad.
How the hell can this be the 199th best film in movie history according to IMDb? I mean, it’s a very cute dog (or dogs more likely), but that is basically everything that is worth mentioning about this film.
Cute, but could have fitted into a Vine
"Hachi: A Dog's Tale" is a true tearjerker. If you don't cry, you're heartless.
i don't have much to write about but something i observed while watching this movie. sometimes the act of stretching out a tearjerking moment, like over the span of the final thirty minutes of a movie, dilutes the emotional impact. in doing this there's no single definable moment towards which to direct all the tears. it's why the ending to "homeward bound" or the ending to futurama's "jurassic bark" got me more worked up emotionally than any moment in "hachi." still, it's nice at times to watch a movie full of a community of good people who are naturally nice to each other. i watch too much dreary soul-sucking pretentious assholery, jesus christ ohhh my gosh my dog's got his widdle stubby legs sticking out right now he looks like a salamander!!! :3
Richard Gere stars as a college professor who finds an abandoned dog and takes the poor lost animal in. The film follows the two as the man and animal soon form a strong and unexplainable bond.
I love this movie
my brain says 1/5 and my heart says 5/5 and in the middle I cried a lot
no plot for 90% of the movie, and then they cram all of the plot into the last 20 minutes. I usually don't cry at animal movies, but this had me and the 3 others I was watching the movie with crying by the end.
