Outside the mansion YET AGAIN.
Funny how his hand got burned when he stuck it in the shadows, but when he ran his whole body in full throttle he just got thrown against a wall.
I don't know if Akiko is squirting something in Kazuo's eyes, or if she's giving him some smelling salt, but I do know that Yamamura's fanning Kaz with is hat.
"I'unno, you were the one in the room."
... in a galaxy not too far away...
Long awaited? What, was the woman pregnant for two years or something?
"They liked to play Shadow Puppets together."
"How he expected to put a child's life on four walls is beyond me, but that's what he intended to do!"
"It wasn't a popular language."
"She put in the wrong kind of fuel, the furnace blew up, and everybody died. The end."
"Ichirou really enjoyed the cold, and that woman went and ruined it."
Now THERE'S some damn fine parenting skills!
"She overcooked it, and it was dried out beyond edibility."
The movie makes such a big deal about the eye thing, and this four words of background meshed together with a bunch of other garbage makes it pretty much meaningless.
"She really, really, wanted a kid, but didn't feel like going through the whole pregnancy and birth thing again."
This part I have to commend. The way the game explained the whole "lobbing other kids into the incinerator" thing, it made it sound like the other kids Mamiya was throwing into the incinerator were her other kids.
"Couldn't she have just used wood?"
"Except nobody wanted to play with the kid because his mother was a big meanie."
"...carrying torches and pitchforks and other farming supplies."
According to the game Mamiya had locked herself in her room and commit suicide there. Then again, the movie omits the whole inner sanctuary, dungeon, and creepy area behind the statues. And rhyme and reason.
"Ugh! How awful!"
If you haven't played the game and can't be bothered to, but want to know what really happened to Ichirou according to that, highlight from here:
He drew a cat once.
"Tune in next week and I'll tell you about that abandoned mansion in Racoon City. It has mutants!"
"Yeah yeah yeah, kid got burned, mother went insane, villiagers rampaged. WHERE'S EMI?!"
Some creepy stuff, that's for sure.
Dude, the guy who woke Mamiya up got what was coming to him. Stop yelling at Kazuo.
"As are the dolls, chairs, and other inanimate objects."
TO THE BATMOBILE!
"Well, we could just try asking nicely."
Did you not see what happened when Akiko pointed the flashlight as Emi?
You go, Mura.
"Not what Kazuo says, that's for sure."
Dude! How hard did you hit your head when you got thrown across the hallway? The shadows destroy the lighting!
...ooooo-kay, so obviously there was a time when Mamiya was rampaging around the mansion before. The movie never bothers to explain how the Memorial Tower came to be, and how it calmed Mamiya, or bound her, or whatever.
"They're like CS Majors."
It didn't work, but it did something wiggy with Emi's face.
"WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY AMULET?"
Thinking isn't Kazuo's forte.
"Wow, that's really clever. Are you a poet?"
"Yamamura's being mean!"
Great! Let's head on over to the Roivas Mansion and get the Sigil of Xel'lotath!
"...unless you need him to ram his colossal body into something, getting him killed, in which case he may end up saving the world."
Remember when I said the only time anybody besides Kazuo ingests anything was Taguchi's shot back at the tub scene? Well, I don't know how the hell I forgot about this one.
After Mura puts his mouth on the bottle...
"I don't like you!"
Look, I think she'd know if she'd had a child, Mura, unless she's suffered brain damage since going through the nine months of torment and the torturous birthing process.
Because she's had no experience in bed.
"Unless the woman is really, really big."
Make that the INSANE soul of a mother who lost a child.
...er, how does Mura know Emi's mother is dead?
"Like North and South. Peanut Butter and Jelly. Rock, paper, and scissors."
Maybe if you weren't a complete idiot who forgets thing that happened two minutes ago, you could do something.
"I don't want it."
"It's the perfect time for acting like an idiot, but not for jokes!"
And then the movie will become even more pointless and agonizing.
Change of subject!
This one what? A pimple?
Mura starts pretending he's a Jedi.
Dude, I think Mura knows what he's talking about. YOU were the one who thought the curse was a load of hooey, then your old friend from TV Broadcasting class gets ripped in half, and some chick end up a pile of molten rock.
Japanese lesson time! The Japanese word for "shit" is "kuso". Now go say it to everybody!
Mura starts singing a song that goes on for a minute and a half. The music sounds like some kind of drunken bar thing, but not a word of it is subtitled, and the background music sounds like something from the county fair's merry-go-round. Words can't begin to describe how innappropriate it is for the moment, not that this is the first time the movie made a mockery of itself.
"He's so cute when he's drunk."
I said I wanted a giraffe.
"I DID IT!"
Okay, that's just creepy.
Kazuo's probably wondering what's so funny.
Or maybe not.
C'mon, Rendezvous at the Mountain ain't gonna solve itself!
You big baby.
"Oh yeah, I think Gozer the Gozerian is kept down here as well. Watch out for that."
Mura's sure enjoying this.
You're such a boy scout, Kaz.
Akiko takes it a little more cautiously.
So, Kaz pockets the Amulet, grabs the lights, and runs down the stairs...
...and predictably hits it against the passage.
