    "destroy the old and you destroy our memory of the past."

    SO CUTE despite the fact that they were really ready to risk it all even with THAT elephant in the room.... also that intro song might as well be the official theme song for how delicious all ghibli-esque food looks

  • Wuthering Heights

    Wuthering Heights

    ★★★

    I HAVE SOME THINGS TO SAY. so apparently almost all film adaptations of WH just ignore the second part of the novel which is...so strange to me??? like there's so much great layered stuff going on, lots of good drama, and it makes what happens in the first half much more complex. this really isn't a love story, which is how its been preserved in popular memory. like yeah that's a part of it, but it's really much more about…

    ok not to get dramatic here for a minute but. i am ASTOUNDED at how this is by far one of the best adaptations of a popular book i've ever seen???? i'm a massive fan of the novel after reading it recently and this show struck the perfect balance of being incredibly faithful to the source material while also being its own separate, beautiful piece of art. marianne and connell's story cuts so deeply to my core — as they…

    two guys committing murder for the sake of philosophy because they were influenced by their charismatic teacher played by none other than jimmy stewart — my ideal plot!
