    Corpse Bride

    ★★★★

    Another one of those childhood classics that terrified me to the point of not revisiting it until I felt I'd matured enough. That was yesterday, and I'm 25. Nice, I'm sure I'll be able to watch The Exorcist by the time I'm 50.

    Childhood traumas aside, this is one of Tim Burton's finest works. Maybe not narratively, which is pretty straight-forward and formulaic, functioning as a perfect horror tale for children, but visually. This film is a wonderful example of…

    Hmm, if you thought Fast & Furious was indeed fast and furious, wait until you see Titane.

    Third round, and it was just as exhilarating.

    Can confirm the rewatch quality of this is immense, and it only gets better and better as you pick up all the thematic richness that goes in every single frame. For almost three hours, I can feel part of this universe, of this Dune.

    For those of us who love escapism in film, this is just a dream come true.
