    You set out today across the ocean of life, with the wind in your sails and boundless prospects on the horizon.”

    Once again, Isao Takahata proves to be a phenomenal filmmaker, with the ability to make simple concepts into breathtaking movies. Wether it be Pom Poko, which behind all the Raccoon testicles actually told a really intriguing and emotional story, or Only Yesterday, which follows a woman going to the country and revisiting past events in her childhood, which is…

    I can't remember who met who first, or who fell in love with who first. All I can remember is the seven of us always together.”

    When I was a kid, I was introduced into this era of movies by my parents. Growing up with them, going to Goodwill to buy used VHS’ to grow my collection and pass the time, learning how movies can be so good and so bad. There were stinkers from time to time, (Phenomenon with…

    Evil dies tonight!”

    Gonna need some time to marinate with this one, and may watch it again while it’s on Peacock. But man, how disappointing! I did not like Halloween (2018) much when I saw it in theaters. It wasn’t exactly bad, but it really wasn’t my thing, and I felt the positives outweighed the negatives. 

    Throughout the promotion of this movie however, I began to think that I would really like it. It seemed to take a more brutal…

    You can’t make a movie about the dangers of young girls being sexualized/sexualizing themselves and how they can be emotionally and physically affected, and then go and sexualize them yourself.

    As a concept, this movie is not bad. I quite like the idea of it, actually. But the execution is simply appalling. There are full, in-depth scenes of preteen girls twerking into the camera, rubbing their butts together, slapping each other’s butts. There’s even multiple shots where you can see…
