  • The Thief of Bagdad

    The Thief of Bagdad

    ★★★★

    Such arms. Exuberant and precise, like a Muppet attempting semaphore.

    What a delight! The sets, the creatures, the costumes... all so much fun.

  • Fallen Angel

    Fallen Angel

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Wow. I'm glad he lampshaded how nonsensical his plan was - "I'll find the money to marry you proper, Stella, and I'll do it in less than a week. I'll convince this heiress that I've so far only terrible offended to marry me, and steal all her money" - but still. And then it works? Kinda? I mean, Stella wasn't going along with it, even before the murder. Not that Eric thought women saying no was even the slightest obstacle.

    What a rubbish guy.

    Axolotl Overkill

    ★★★½

    I was expecting more axolotls.

    Enjoyed watching that quite a bit. Couldn't make a whole lot of sense from it, but surprisingly I don't too much mind. Great texture here, moment to moment. Scenes that convey.

  • Rabbit

    Rabbit

    ★★½

    There's some lovely pastel insanity and nice ideas here but it felt hollow. Collapsing under sustained attention. Any forward momentum came from the really loud music - like a slow sustained jump scare creating artificial tension. Like, I loved the loud music as music but it felt like cheap manipulation.
