    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

    ★★★★½

    An emotional, epic, and satisfying conclusion. Peter Jackson's work here is amazing and the cast is on the top of their game. Sam is the MVP of this movie and it is so nice to see his happy ending

    Haven't seen this film in a long time. Probably Miyazaki's darkest and most mature film, but it's also beautifully animated and has an important story. Not necessarily one that I would rewatch a lot, but it is an impressive film. I still personally prefer some of the more lighthearted Miyazaki films

    This film really grew on me as it went along. Its a very different animated film that takes its time with the story and doesn't involve any high stakes. Its a nice story about growing up, experiencing early love, and the desire to pursue your dreams. An underrated Studio Ghibli film

    ★★★★

    A fun and engaging comedy that delves a bit deeper into its characters and themes than what's typically expected of the genre. Two great lead performances, especially Andy Samberg. Wish it was a little longer so it didn't feel kind of rushed
