    Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

    ★★★½

    Super excited to finally be able to catch this, as I watched Bebop last summer and truly fell in love with it, its characters, and its unique energy. Enjoyed this as well, definitely not as much as the show (as expected) but to be fair, I liked this about as much as I was expecting to. Even without watching the show, I feel like this would have been relatively easy to understand and a good and entertaining film, but after…

    TIFF Film #6.

    Sundance Film Festival, Film #10. 

    I think the idea of Simulation Theory is an interesting one, but this documentary is unfortunately anything but. Spends too much time rambling about random things that barely fulfill its subject matter instead of keeping this a tight and concise look at an alternate possibility of being. Much more boring than it needs to be, with super annoying subjects and a general structure that fails to keep interest more often than not. Way too long as well, and just disappointing.
