Parker uses Netscape 3.0 on Mac OS (classic) to browse the Internet on October 26, 1996 (the date of baseball 1996 World Series, Game 6). This is historically correct: the browser was released on August 19, 1996. The websites he visits appear to be large static images, which contain the whole page pre-rendered separately. See more »
When Hachiko has moved in with Andy, Michael and Ronnie (still a baby), he is shown laying on the floor, while Ronnie collides with the dog repeatedly in his baby walker. In the first shot showing the walker from the side, the baby is absent from his walker. Cut to a master shot showing baby Ronnie in the walker, followed by another shot of the walker colliding with Hachi, similar to the first which shows now the baby's legs. 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.

Its really hard to articulate when you have so much to write and so little words to express. And even lesser words which could actually help you convey what you want to say. The closest word which comes to my mind in this case is 'stupendous'.
Hachiko is a true story about a dog in Japan and the special bond he shared with a professor whom he met when it was a little puppy. The story has been put forward exceptionally well by the cast and the director.
The movie has been kept extremely simple with minimum effort on the scenes, yet remarkably you are kept spellbound after a couple of minutes into the movie. And as the other reviews suggest, making the whole theater grab onto their tissues explains how good it really is.
Lastly, coming for someone who also rates 'Eight below' as one of his favorite's, a high rating of Hachiko would seem a little biased to many. But in my honest opinion I don't think that anybody who has watched this movie can rate it below 10.
