  • The Hidden Fortress

    The Hidden Fortress

    ★★★½

    The Hidden Fortress is a somewhat weaker Akira Kurosawa fare which benefits from strong audio-visuals, excellent characterization, different, amusing protagonists and a great adventurous approach, but it is obviously very lacking thematically speaking and its runtime is needlessly protracted.

  • Missing Link

    Missing Link

    ★★★★½

    Thanks to expectedly beautiful animation with many memorable places, an undeniable adventurous spirit to it and a great message, Missing Link is a long-awaited return to form for Laika across the board. It's leisurely paced and uneven in tone, but the characterization is fantastic, the themes are well explored and its heart is always in the right place. It's a delightfully old-fashioned adventure flick that really works.

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    ★★★★★

    With groundbreaking animation which still looks stunning to this day with gorgeous backgrounds and terrific character design along with one of the studio's best soundtracks with all-time greats such as Heigh-Ho, Whistle While You Work and Someday My Prince Will Come, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs truly is remarkable in every way and a timeless classic.

    The Innocents

    ★★★★½

    The Innocents unquestionably is one of the most gorgeous black-and-white films of all time as the cinematography is stunning, the costumes are phenomenal and its setting and time period are brought to life beautifully thanks to its meticulous attention to detail. It also features a terrific performance from Deborah Kerr, a chilling atmosphere, a couple of genuinely creepy moments and a wonderfully told, very dark and indelible storyline. It surely is one of the greatest horror films from the sixties.
