In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
In Bedridge, Professor Parker Wilson finds an abandoned dog at the train station and takes it home with the intention of returning the animal to its owner. He finds that the dog is an Akita and names it Hachiko. However, nobody claims the dog so his family decides to keep Hachi. Written by

According to the movie's closing cards the real Hachiko died in March 1934. The earlier movie, Hachiko Monogatari, and other sources state that he died in March 1935 (9 years and 9 months after Professor Ueno's death). See more »
When Cate awakens Parker, who has fallen asleep watching Game 6 of the 1996 World Series with Hachi, the footage shown on the television is of then-Yankee catcher Joe Girardi running out his run-scoring triple in that game. Presumably it's late, and Parker and Hachi had been watching the game quite a while for Parker to have fallen asleep, but Girardi's triple came in the 3rd inning. It's also questionable whether Parker, who's depicted as an avid Yankee fan, would fall asleep during a World Series-clinching game. See more »
So even if Columbus got lost and wasn't the first to discover America, he's still my hero. He was really brave to sail in such a tiny ship over a really big ocean. And because of him, we get Columbus Day off of school.

Hachiko was my grandfather Wilson's dog. Everyone called Hachi a mystery dog because they never really knew where he came from. Maybe Hachi escaped from a dog pound. Or maybe he...

I first knew about "Hachiko: A Dog's Story" because of Sarah Roemer, my favorite actress. When I read more about this movie and found out that Richard Gere and Joan Allen were in the cast too, I was really excited.
I saw the movie on 29 Setember at "Festival do Rio de Janeiro" and I loved it! It's really powerful and touching. I loved how they showed the dog's vision in black & white.
The only thing that I didn't like at all was that the characters seems to "never take flight". I know Parker (Richard Gere) and the dog Hachiko are the main characters, but I think that the other characters could have been explored a bit more. But I do understand why it wasn't done.
If you are a dog person, you will definitely love this movie! It's a sad, beautiful story that touches everyone's heart! A must-see.
