    The Way I See It

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion

    ★★★½

    A fun Clusterf*ck. You need a Ph.D in anime to be able to follow everything that happens. Luckily I have one and I enjoyed what I saw. Diminishes the greatness of the original series, but only by a little.

    Certain Women

    ★★★½

    Three different stories of women connected by their love of cheeseburgers.
