    Four Weddings and a Funeral

    Not sure quite how well this has aged. America's infatuation with clever British people has subsided considerably and my generation doesn't have the obsession with marriage that previous generations did. I think that makes this pretty interesting as a bit of a time capsule, but nothing that special. Also I don't know what it is about Andie MacDowell in this movie but she drives me insane.

    Ha ha, I get it, it's funny because they are late to a wedding again! Laughing out loud!

    As a child I'm almost 100% sure I didn't realize that all of the backgrounds in this are not computer generated... it was strange to say the least. Lots of weird sexual moments in this too, not sure what to make of that. Sad to read that Verhoven's original concept for this sounded pretty badass - a nihilistic portrayal of evolution on Earth, ending with a mass extinction event, and NO talking. Sounds like Disney was too chicken to run with that though.

    Can't believe an entire team of people likely spent years on this. What a mess.

    I can respect a one continuous shot movie if that element actually does something to make it stand out. Victoria excelled at this, turning a night-gone-wrong movie into something a lot more believable and disturbing. At the height of its chaos, you realize that Victoria herself only met these dudes like an hour ago! By the end, it is hard to believe that it all happened in less than two and a half hours. I finished this movie around 9pm…

    The Cat Returns

    Enjoyable enough, but nothing close to the rest of Ghibli. Cute cats kind of make up for it though. Hard to imagine them going from Spirited Away to this. A fun weekend afternoon watch when you don't want to pay too much attention.
