The Ramen Girl movie…

Posted: November 5, 2010 in Media

Yes Hollywood has done it again. Taken a perfectly good japanese movie, thrown in some random americans in Japan for some rediculous reason, and wah lah. a new movie.
A remake of Tampopo, in which a japanese lady tries to become a ramen chef at the ramen shop her husband left her, The Ramen Girl is about a beautiful blond, very madeup, american girl stranded in japan (?) who wants to become a ramen master (??).


like….ugh………ugh!…….UGH!!!!!!!
i think the worst bit was when the ramen master guy says to her *you be my successor* and she says *i would be honored*……like…..vomit…..
What a horrible movie.
That:s all i can say about that.
