    3,2,1 LET’S JAM 

    Cowboy Bebop blends the western, sci-fi, noir genres together to make a completely one of a kind masterpiece in anime.

    First off, the animation and drawing style tops most of the anime today. The subtle highlights and shadows create drawn depth that I don’t think is shown as well in other anime. It’s my favorite style of animation, which probably effects this bias, but it’s amazing nonetheless.

    It Is Written.

    My heart was beating from the anxiousness I had going into this. The buildup of Paul felt very intimate and empathetic as he was intertwining himself with Chani and the Fremen people. And the power of Paul left me saddened for those same people. 

    A perfect adaptation for the screen, even if all the book lore wasn't able to fit.

    Will Paul’s prophetic Jihad succeed on the backs on the Fremen? Will he be the Messiah?

    Prep for Dune: Part Two 

    Part One lays out such a great foundation of the stakes and lore behind the themes of Dune before the stakes get even higher in Part Two. 

    Much like our own two party political divide, the Harkonnens and Atreides are similar to that in this universe. Both houses, albeit different, are both consumed by the power and exploitation of resources in Arrakis. Desert power.

    This was everything I wanted it to be. 

    I laughed: The bloody napkin scene. Thinking she was going to grab a knife from the kitchen but uses peaches instead lol 

    I almost cried: The dad looking at each corner of his home trying to remember every corner as it’s flooding. The ending! 

    I was thrilled: Bong Joon-ho never fails at creating tension, buildup and release. 

    Best of the year, and so metaphorical.
