    ★★★★

    Man, what a thrilling movie. Morgan Freeman being the handsome guy that he is just nails it again. But I want to point out the really good performances of Monica Potter as Jezzle for a secondary main characters as well as the performance of the villain Gary Soneji played by Michael Wincott. Both delivered performances I really enjoyed and that is a surprise to welcome.

    I was also very surprised to find out that I knew the opening scene or…

    Man, what an awesome anime. Loved it from start to finish. It has incredibly likable characters and also characters that are very easy to hate. But in a good way. The art design is fantastic. It's not bombastic or over-the-top, it's not flashy or anything. But something about the character design is strikingly great.

    This short time of a fleeting life filled me with tears and emotions only a few animated series could manage to achieve.

    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    ★★★★★

    An incredible and epic story featuring one of the most badass female characters I've ever seen in fiction. Showing the result of total war and humanity's failure to sustain peace and handle the power they held. I don't have to tell you why this movie is a masterpiece, you can just look at other people's reviews and you'll know. Everything I would say has been said already. All I want to say is that rewatching this reconfirmed for me how good of a movie this is. Certified kino.

    I love Nausicaä. What a woman!
