Trauma and loneliness go a special kind of hand in hand. Keeping people at a distance becomes easier then dealing with the actual pain that you're experiencing or have experienced. Coping with pain becomes more addicting then actually meaningfully facing it in any kind of real capacity. It feels good to retreat internally. Back into your own fantasy, media, other people, dramas, stories so you can relate but not have to actually cope with your own problems, traumas, etc.
I am so absolutely torn on this film. This is the first time in a long time where I'm both amazed at how genuinely well crafted this film is and absolutely disgusted and full of hatred over how propagandist of "picking yourself up from your bootstraps" this film is.
It's a film that understands poverty, the sadness and struggles that poverty induces in a system that keeps people down in it and tries to guilt and trick them into it…
Honestly my favorite out of all of them. Genuinely funny as fuck with some of the wildest "we have an even bigger budget now" stunts.
Beehive Tetherball is so fucking wild from just a conceptual level. The elaborate buildup to it is genuinely so fucking funny. The fucking poo cocktail supreme is so fucking disgusting and wildly put together. Bits like those litter this whole thing in some of the funniest bits. I can't wait for the .5 watches honestly.
Also very funny attempts at 3D shots. Wish there was a convenient way to watch the 3D version lmao.
This would've probably been my favorite one but Terror Taxi was just so fucking racist and genuinely mean spirited. Like they do some cruel shit to each other but this was just fucking evil. I wouldn't be shocked if Bam pushed it farther and farther but who knows. Like there are funny ideas within it and I won't lie it's wildly executed/committed to/elaborately setup but it's just so mean and fucked up that it doesn't seem worth it.
Didn't realize this was even on here so writing a review for it cause fuck it why not.
SSSS.Gridman is one of Trigger's best shows and the fact that everybody slept on it and called it bad at all is fucking criminal.
At it's heart this is a show about escapism, about hating life so much that you escape into a world where you and you alone control the pieces, you have all you want in your own box of…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Rebellion is such a perfect progression/ending to the whole series.
It's the type of ending that understands the actual consequences of the series and what has occurred. It understands that you can't have honestly gone through everything Homura has gone through by this point in the series and not be incredibly fucked up and have absolutely toxic and bad views of how protecting people works.
The complete ripping of agency from the characters which first is out of everyone's control…
