    Gintama: The Semi-Final

    ★★½

    Note: This is a review of the entire show. There will be no spoilers, so I do encourage that you read it if you're planning to get into the series or on the fence. If you're not interested in Gintama whatsoever... well... I don't see any reason for you to read this.

    For as long as I can remember, I've always loved anime. Ever since I was in elementary school. I remember watching episodes of Inuyasha late at night and tons…

    April Story

    ★★★★★

    I immensely dislike the obsession the mainstream industry has with escapist cinema. It’s not that escapist cinema is inherently a bad thing or that it has no artistic value, though. As an aspiring filmmaker, I love to focus on the things that make cinema interesting for me; I love beautiful cinematography, outstanding music, smart writing, all the works. However, major film studios have seemed to notice a problem with these. People notice good aspects of cinema and are quick to…

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★

    In between all its sweeping apocalypticism lies a masterfully told coming-of-age narrative. Anakin finds himself torn by the unrealistic morals told to him as the “Jedi way” and he essentially turns himself into an entitled brat. The idealistic romance from Attack of the Clones was little more than a mere childish mishap and one small act of defiance, but it would become the collapse of the Republic. The digital age action which began practice in The Phantom Menace has been perfected, as well.

    ★★

    Shoddily directed and rather lifeless overall, The Clone Wars is heavily lacking in personality. I haven’t seen the TV series nor does this mediocre animated flick filled to the brim with monotonous action sequences make me want to watch several seasons of what’s seemingly more of this.

    Don’t listen to the haters! This is a very funny, often clever satire. Perhaps a bit annoying at points but it never bothered me.

  • Josee, the Tiger and the Fish

    Josee, the Tiger and the Fish

    ★★½

    The live-action adaptation: Tsuneo quietly walks down the road until he sees Josee rolling down a hill and falling off her wheelchair. Like the average college student he is, he kindly escorts her back to their home but doesn't speak a word the entire way there. Josee doesn't speak up, either. It's a quick and lighthearted scene that sets up both characters as timid yet willing to accept the other’s presence, starting their relationship while still leaving a good amount…
