If you thought the Americans had cornered the market on super-sized portions then think again. Because the USA has got some competition in the eating stakes and it comes in the unlikely form of Japan. After generations of staying slim on modest portions of rice, noodles and vegetables a newly affluent wave of Japanese society are enjoying a western style boom in big eating.
Known as ‘ohmori’ or ‘large serving’ (大盛り) this departure from traditional meal sizes have become increasingly popular amongst more adventurous Japanese. Some of these dishes are called “mega” (メガ) or even “jumbo” (ジャンボ or “janbo”) in Japanese.
What makes these huge servings even more stomach-busting is that you are expected to clean your plate in Japan. Not finishing your meal can be considered rude! Have fun trying to finish these.
On a bus one day.....
.....a man was sitting next to a woman who was trying to breast-feed her child. The child however refuses to suck on the breast.
Being frustrated, the mother threatens the child, "If you don't suck on, I will give it to the man next to us!" The child still refuses to oblige. After about 10 minutes of failed effort to get her child to breastfeed, the woman threatens her child again.
Finally the man clears his throat and says, "Look here woman, you better make up your mind. I was supposed to get off 6 stops ago!"

In The Name of the Father (1993) To accurately portray a wrongly convicted prisoner, Day-Lewis spent several nights at a time chilling in solitary confinement in the abandoned prison they were filming in. He even kept himself awake for three days in preparation for an interrogation scene in the film. He also reportedly had crew members randomly throw water on him and verbally abuse him for a realistic IRA prisoner experience.
Last of the Mohicans (1992) To prepare for his role in Last of the Mohicans, D-Lewz (his rapper name) taught himself how to live as a survivalist and learned how to hunt animals for food. He refused to eat anything that he hadn’t killed, whether it was with his trusty flintlock rifle, or a tomahawk both of which he could use very accurately. He might have even karate chopped a couple of geese for dinner, you never know with this guy. D-Lewz also learned how to build a canoe, because if you don’t know how to build a canoe, you don’t know shit.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)
I had to start off by mentioning Jiro. Not only is this documentary fantastic, but it’s one of the more recognizable titles in this list. I have friends who either never watched, or claimed to hate documentaries, but ended up loving this movie. I think it’s a great jumping off point into the genre. Jiro Dreams of Sushi chronicles the life of Jiro Ono, an 85-year-old sushi chef who runs one of the best sushi restaurants in the world. However, as much as this is a film about the quest for gastronomic perfection, it’s also a film about family, legacy, personal sacrifice and how all these things fit together (or don’t).
