    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    ★★★½

    The following review will have two parts: review and rant. One will discuss all the positive and most of the negative aspects of the film. The other will rant big time and you are advised to stay away from the second half if you mind spoilers. SPOILERS for the rant, not for the review. That is all.

    Review
    Prisoner of Azkaban is easily my favorite Harry Potter film thus far. The core positive aspect of it, especially compared to Chris…

  • Ikiru

    Ikiru

    ★★★★½

    “Life is brief.”

    Akira Kurosawa is a master and this is a masterpiece. In case you didn’t know, Ikiru is Japanese for “to live.” An interesting title for a story about a dying man, but that’s just it. This film isn’t about death. It’s about life. The nature of it. Life is like a stack of cash waiting to be spent on anything you desire. But you only get so much wealth. There is always an end to the stack.…

    Mulan

    ★★½

    This movie had remarkably great stunts, production design, and costume design. But I think Disney genuinely thought they had made a good movie when they released this, and that's the funniest cussing thing I've ever heard. The acting sucks, them getting rid of the songs but shoe-horning the lines into dialogue anyway sucks, the dialogue sucks, the inclusion of chi into the story to make Mulan a Mary Sue instead of a badass sucks, her taking off all her armor…

  • My Neighbor Totoro

    My Neighbor Totoro

    ★★★★

    My Neighbor Totoro was an immensely adorable film with more heart than I can possibly say, beautiful animation, great characters, and surprisingly decent voice casting for an American dub. Everything is impeccably paced, impressively scored, and wonderfully atmospheric. You can really vibe with the film while the film vibes with you, and its lack of plot is for the most part a good thing, not a bad. However, I want to make this a short review because I'm sleepy, so…

  • Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★½

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

    Not only was Judas and the Black Messiah a profound film that moved me more than I can possibly say, it also changed me for the better, something I cannot say many films have done. The most amazing thing about Judas is its ability to encapsulate. Encapsulate grief, encapsulate anger, encapsulate hate, encapsulate a struggle. It encapsulates Fred Hampton's charisma and power, it encapsulates the Black Panther movement, it encapsulates the profound levels of hate emanating from US agencies at…

    The Incredibles

    ★★★★½

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

    Re-rated to 4.5 stars.

    Opening Statement
    This has been my favorite Pixar film, and favorite animated film (besides Fantastic Mr. Fox) since before I can remember. Yes, there was a brief moment consisting of yesterday and this morning where Toy Story 3 dethroned it. This morning, I re-rated TS3 4.5 stars, and am now re-rating this 5 stars. Let's unpack one of my favorite films ever made, shall we? *Incredibles theme plays*

    Direct Examination
    I think the best thing to…
