    NOT A REVIEW

    I liked the way the hero (and the society) is put to face his contradictions.
    I loved several scenes, dialogues, and little details.
    The conclusion, leaving Christian (and the audience) in the dark about the boy and preventing him to come to terms with this, pleased me a lot.

    Overall, I can only appreciate what the film exposes but 2,5 hours were far too long for that result, despite the directing.

    Score: 5/10
    Enjoyment: 4->2/5

    To rewatch with original track?

    Me going through this film.


    I remember laughing a few times watching it for the first time in my childhood but tonight, I was wondering what I was watching. Ruiz's La Ville des Pirates seemed far less abstruse to me, plot-wise and imagery-wise.

    The prologue is great mainly thanks to its absurd dialogue and event, the epilogue nicely…

    Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer

    ★★★

    Logical epilogue of the series. Faithful to it in terms of action (but better made thanks to the format). But it was far too long: for a 2h movie, it seemed rather empty. Despite the length, while the message was good, its treatment was incredibly succinct, put at the margin to the benefit of action scenes (as usual for 00). The ET species, as the main element, was also quite underdeveloped.

    Enjoyment: 4/5
    Score: 6/10 Still better than the second…

  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Twilight AXIS Red Trace

    Mobile Suit Gundam: Twilight AXIS Red Trace

    With the choppy nature of the web series this film compiles, the apparent dropping of the story, the unfaithfulness to the novel and loss of any interest it had, and the addition of a new plastic model, I dare to say this was nothing more than a too lengthy toy commercial.

    Score: 2/10
    Enjoyment: 1/5
