    Dracula

    ★★★

    I wish I liked these more. Hammer stuff is good, sometimes great!, but they're never as lurid as I remember them being (maybe it's Kate Bush's fault mixed with faux nostalgia).

    I dig the blood-spurts and castle sets, the story is your standard Dracula fare, Christopher Lee rules.

    Fantastic Planet

    ★★★★

    The score said bangers only.

    This had more narrative than I expected, which was a nice surprise. I just wish there was more characterization. But this is supposed to be fable-esque, I bet. The animation is pretty unique, and quite good; even when it's very basic, it's still a vibe.
