    ★★★★½

    This is less a review and more of a plea to Hollywood. After watching: True Grit, Hell or High Water, The Hateful Eight, and Bone Tomahawk, please make a western that is just two hours of Jeff Bridges and Kurt Russell being gritty at each other. It will be the greatest movie of all time. Here, I'll even start it out for you:

    Fade In

    Ext. A snowy mountain trail

    I give this movie credit for giving us the first mentally handicapped superhero in film history.

    This is probably Hayao Miyazaki's most beautiful film. If you've seen any of his other major movies then you'll be familiar with the basic story here; a young female protagonist in a world of extraordinary creatures and wonder. Miyazaki's work always feels straight out of the Romantic period with it's themes of mythological fascination, return to nature, and focus on the spiritual and mystical. It's definitely a movie that makes you want to have kids so you can show them great stuff like this.
