    Can’t believe I slept on this film for so long! 

    Gorō Miyazaki proves himself his father’s son in this beautiful 2011 film from Studio Ghibli. 

    Combining the most enjoyable parts of anime slice-of-life storytelling and a Western three-act plot with multiple satisfying twists, this story is well worth sitting down for. 

    Equally rewarding are the realism, historical setting that is unashamedly Japanese, and perfectly matching themes between the plot and subplot — appreciation for our context, and for tradition. …

    ★★★★

    A little short of a five star film, but a super enjoyable, emotionally-intelligent . . . No, brilliant, colorful musical chamber drama for kids with valuable lessons for adults too about our imperfect families.

    This awful excuse for cinema parades itself like a Southern Baptist's wet dream of his own importance and the relevance of his 19th century dispensationalist theology. Nicholas Cage is clearly one of the more bearable aspects to this absolutely God-forsaken film.

    Howard the Duck

    ★★½

    Duck boobs. 80s hair. An incredible amount of sex jokes for a PG film. Lucas explosions and creatures. Remus Lupin possessed by Satan. Cajun Sushi. Beastiality.
