Weathering with You

Weathering with You ★★★★½

A wonderful follow up to Your Name. Just like Your Name, this has enduring characters that I hope will become just as iconic, and a story so perfectly written that it doesn't even need an antagonist to keep it gripping. Radwimps returns to do the score and I enjoyed it a lot, not only was it made up of terrific tracks that I'm gonna be listening to over and over, but it was used in a way that really transcended the film. It sucks when a film has a great score but they don't use it right, but Weathering with You gets it right. Since this film is playing with the weather, it opens itself to some gorgeous visuals. There are numerous scenes that you could just frame and put on your wall. I really loved this. I'm definitely going to be rewatching it in the future. Right now it's my second favourite film of the year behind Under the Silver Lake.
