    “There's a secret mission in uncharted space”

    Lightyear is a 2000’s era kids adventure B-movie, with a level of writing that’s only allowed when you have Captain America and Buzz fucking Lightyear. Opening 20 is genuinely brilliant and then we fall into drab tropes and cliches and bleh. Buzz is (but isn’t) the character from Toy Story, this is (but shouldn’t be) Andy’s favourite movie, and this has nothing to do with Woody and co. This is nothing but uncharted space for us, and the secret mission we’re on is handing Disney $1 billion in nostalgia fees. Let’s hope they choke on it.

    Do you like me or the serotonin? The idea of my smile over you or the thoughts in my head? Am I just an exercise in ego, a jump start from a relationship long lost or am I going to lead to your jump starts in the future? It isn't…

    When you make a jigsaw, the natural starting point would be the edge pieces; building inwards until you’re finished. Perfect Blue scraps that notion, giving you only the centre portion, asking you to build outwards. Kon creates a hallucinatory death spiral into the mind of the patriarchy; a scratching, tearing toddler divulged of weakness attempting facade. Every thematic element stacks upon the prior so neatly, you’d begin to wonder if this was formed by man…
