    ★★★★★

    Hayao Miyazaki has done it. I figured there was a chance that one of his films would become an instant favorite of mine before I dove into his work, and I was right, Kiki's Delivery Service is one of my new favorite films.

    Similar to My Neighbor Totoro and contrasting Miyazaki's earlier work, Kiki's is an incredibly small stakes, simple film that is at its core, one of the most profound and relatable coming of age stories of all time.…

    This lost Best Picture to Gladiator. That happened.

    ★★★★★

    I often forget about how I should count my blessings that we live in a time where Spike Lee is making movies. With Da 5 Bloods he delivers one of his absolute best joints, and I do not say that lightly.

Netflix MUST push for Delroy in the best leading actor…
