    Da 5 Bloods

    ★½

    Shiiiiiiiittttt. What the fuck was that? I mean, this was a great idea for a film, but what we have here is Spike experimenting with a genre film he seems ill-equipped to make, while trying to connect that with as many Black & Vietnamese history lessons and film homages he can muster. The end product is an amateurish production unworthy of an artist I respect, and even baffling in its overall messages...

    The Lion King

    ★★★★★

    The (Shakespearean) quest for power, involving some usual evils of: murder, deceit, jealousy, manipulation, a lost childhood, chaotic autocratic rule...

    Triumphed over by: friendship, love, eating bugs, an infectious ode to life theme song, and a hard knock to the head by a crazy-ass mandrill.

    Colourful, vibrant animation. Endearing [both evil & good], well-voiced characters. Beautiful music. Wonderful dialogues. Fantastic storytelling. Unlimited rewatch value.

    Masterpiece.

    Syndrome: Is this the Parr residence?

    Kari: [maniacally] Yes! I'm Kari - the babysitter!

    Syndrome: Well, hello - Kari.

    Kari: You're my replacement, thank heavens you've come! What's the "S" stand for?

    Syndrome: It stands for... sitter! Yeah, sitter. I was originally going to have the initials for babysitter but then I'd be going around with a big BS and you can understand why I couldn't do that.
