    Chef- The Movie

    Finally saw Chef the Movie tonight with some friends... awesome move!!! We are so proud to be a part of it (yup... Japanese Knife Imports first movie credit... check out a bunch of our knives in the movie #zakuri #gesshinginga #gesshinuraku #gesshin)

    After seeing it, i really appreciate the time and effort that Jon Favreau and Roy Choi put in to making this authentic feeling. I think, in a lot of ways, they were able to truly capture the #ChefLife.

    So what did you guys think of the movie?

    I feel the same way about that movie as I did about "Backdraft".
    An ill attempt of capturing something that you can't understand until you've lived it.

    I've never even heard of it before, but I will check it when I can.

    As for living and understanding movies, I feel that most movies (bar outright fiction or science fiction) attempt to approximate reality in some way so that other non-specialists can be voyeurs into another part of life. Every military movie is the same way, and if you haven't served in the military or especially combat, you will far short of understanding it completely. My wife is a physician and she makes the same comments about movies with medical themes. It's all the same -- these movies usually far short of the specialists' expectations. Recently I read an article about the movie gravity where people from NASA were picking it apart. Air traffic controllers and pilots also complained about the movie Flight -- but I enjoyed both of those imperfect movies.

    I just watched it as a movie and I thought it wasn't bad. At least they got the cornstarch right. Been doing that all week.lol
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Man, I knew there must be a reason that I felt so at home when I visited the islands.

    Far as I can tell, the movie isn't even going to come to any of our 10 screens. Godzilla, on the other hand, is another story.

    Got to see it last Sunday with the wife. I loved it! (Especially the molten lava cake scene.. classic). I like it more than Big Night (the ending was depressing).
