Movie Review: Fish Story

How to explain Fish Story? Well it's an anthology. You don't see too many of those anymore (Miles, what about Pulp Fiction, Trick 'R' Treat and Sin City? Ehrm eh. I SAID "YOU DON'T SEE TOO MANY OF THOSE ANYMORE.")

It's also undisputedly Japanese. Sentai serves as a plot point.  Alright, it's the end of the world as we know it.

I couldn't help myself. Anyway, a meteor is about to collide with Earth and make everything go boom. You have a misanthropic old man trolling around town mostly because he get's a kick out of seeing misery, but at this point almost everybody has evacuated. Almost. One plucky kid who figures somebody will figure out a way to save everything is hanging out at a record shop with a clerk. The two are so blase about the affair that it drives the old man crazy. The clerk then tells the old man a prophecy that in the world's greatest hour of need this one song will save the world.

The rest of the movie focuses on stories tangentially related to the song, including it's origin.  The stories are so short that describing them will probably spoil stuff so I'll just say it all works.  The song is awesome too. I believe a song like that could save the world.
