    Your Name.


    I decided to watch this anime on an airplane, as I had gotten some recommendations to see it, but not knowing much about it. The gender-swapping premise drove me to expect a comedy along the lines of Ranma 1/2, but I was pleasantly surprised by this complex yet sweet movie with an unexpected sci-fi twist.

    It's an interesting concept to combine all these stories into one, and I imagine I'd enjoy the stage show, so I think I might've had high expectations for this film. Unfortunately, I think it fell flat, except for the visuals. Mostly unimpressive performances, but Meryl Streep was a standout.

    Wanted to give this a chance since the concept was intriguing, but I couldn't get through it. Over-stylized, which made it hard to differentiate waking and dreaming moments, with less than desirable writing and acting.

    I watched this based on Bill Murray's answer on his Reddit AMA that it is the work he's most proud of, and I can see why he said so. He does melancholy so well, and he can say so much without dialogue.
