    Museum

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Museum was an interesting watch, even though I found several similarities to ‘Saw’ in regards to situational punishments based on some perceived wrongdoing. I even found it amusing that the main character, Detective Sawamura, his last name begins with ‘Saw’. Not sure if that coincidence or not. The character development was good for the most part, partially told through flashbacks. I found the story rather intriguing and there were a few surprises along the way. The atmosphere was predominately dark,…

    The House

    ★★★★

    'The House' a stop-motion animation film, from the likes of Wes Anderson, consists of three vignettes that revolve around the same house in different eras.

    The themes of accepting change and letting go are prominent in all three stories, or at least that was my take away. I favored the last story most, the acceptance of change and the burden of worry washed away, literally. I found it portrayed this in a positive way, whereas the first two segments were chaotic, and for the most part negative in their outcome.
