    Tampopo

    ★★★★½

    An excellent feel good comedy with plenty of authentic heart-felt moments. Tampopo is the kind of film that makes me really hungry and optimistic about life. All the side stories were so damn interesting. The melodramatic (and very horny) romance, the weird lady at the store, the fake college professor, and the dying mom, this film really has it all.

    Besides the obvious food porn aspect of the film, also love how it crafts this metaphor about how humans lives…

Look, was the idea of the Justice League incredibly pretentious? yes. Did Snyder do a decent if not an amazing job at it? yes.

    Firstly: Flash…

    Beautifully Heartbreaking.

    When Ennis receives the news of Jack's death, the film subtly cuts to a silent scene of Jack being brutally beaten up by a group of men while Lureen narrates an untrue version of Jack's death, perhaps to save the grief for herself or perhaps some other reason, we won't know. I think Lee made this choice to put an emphasis on Ennis's agony when receiving the news and how life will never be the same for him…
