    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    ★★★★

    Probably concludes my theatrical rewatch of the potter films so I'm glad it's a high note. Very confident change of pace from the previous instalments but in no way less magical.
    And speaking of notes, another amazing score by John Williams. Quintessentially Harry Potter but beautifully different and evolved from the first two films.

    Also has the best end credits. (and nice long ones to boot so we can listen to more of the music again)

  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    ★★★★★

    Watching the anniversary table read probably doesn't count as a watching of this film (other then in the theatre of the mind).

    But it is almost as much fun. And that has to be high praise for a zoom call!

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    ★★★

    This certainly has its moments. Good moments. Bad moments. Moments.

    It stretches from good acting performances, to bad visual effects and image quality, to beautiful shots, to a messy story, to truly surreal and fun moments.

    There is a lot of odd choices in this film, but for every weak moment, there is an interesting one as well.

    It's got its moments.

    Why'd you spill yer beans Eggers?
    Now I have to live with the memory of this haunting, disgusting, beautiful film.

    Seriously has some of the most beautiful photography of a storm in living memory. Absolutely terrific.
