  • The Empire Strikes Back

    The Empire Strikes Back

    This is a perfect example of what a sequel should do. The writers developed the characters. At first, I wasn't sure I liked Leia and Han's relationship because it seems like she gives in when Han forces himself upon her when they are trapped in the cave. But caves are symbolic of going deeper in the human psyche, something Joseph Campbell explored in his research. So I think Leia has this journey of realizing her feelings. As a leader, she…

    This film is so great! I love the focus on Sarah's identities as a mother and as an astronaut. This film did a great job at making me empathize with her struggles and successes in both these identities. I love the coloring of this film. I love how the premise is used in relation to the shots of nature and the mundane things in life because, knowing she won't be seeing them for much longer, I empathize how the things…

    My last film I watched last year was the Kurosawa film I had seen. Now I’m doing the same with Bergman. And yet, after watching all his features, I still only have the slightest grasp of this film. I can only really relate Vogler and Alma’s relationship to that of how people want to be the perfect selves on social media. The truth is, that perfect image does not exist, it only wants to study you, to be above you,…

    Hilda and the Mountain King

    The answer is empathy. I love how this show can explain such tensions about the after affects of colonization to a point kids can understand and process what they are seeing happen in the world today. And it’s still a very calming and beautiful show to watch.

    This is an excellent movie! I love how it uses sound artfully, and to represent this community. I love the themes: content with the silence, but also with life and how it continues to move as we figure out who we are in life. I love the message of finding home and how relationships are what define home, and the healing that is brought out of that struggle. Also love that little nod to Kiki's Delivery Service :) This is a very beautiful film!

  • A Confucian Confusion

    A Confucian Confusion

    So Qiqi is engaged to Ming, Molly is engaged to Akeem, Larry and Feng live together, Molly's sister is the TV show host and she's married to the author who use to write romance novels a.k.a. the reincarnated Confucius. And then Birdy gets around, he has a thing with Molly and Feng. Not sure which one is Liren. So yeah kind of confusing for sure. The pacing at the beginning starts at a run and never loses speed. But I…
