    My Neighbor Totoro

    ★★★

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

    I honestly forgot that this movie has pretty much no conflict, and that it just kind of ends abruptly and cuts to a song.

    It's fine because it's super cute and just a real fun experience, but at the end I felt like I had just finished act one and the movie was finally going to start. Then the credits rolled. It's absolutely worth a (re)watch but it's not one of my favorite Ghibli films.

    ★★★

    Wild ride. The first part of the film was really emotionally terrifying, and the second half was an insane Crank-like experience. Honestly once Nic Cage was chugging vodka and screaming in a bathroom I was like "yes, okay, I'm on board now, this is already some top tier Cage."

    The wife character doesn't really do anything and exists only to suffer though which sucks a lot. :(

    Train to Busan

    ★★★½

    For a zombie flick the various characters were pretty well developed. The zombies were extremely aggressive and pretty gruesome too.

    I think I'm still burnt out on zombies, just like, overall. But it's one of the better zombie, and train, movies that I've seen in a while.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    Honestly way more engaging than any big budget super hero movie I've seen. It looks fantastic too, and for a third of the cost of an Avengers!
