    Shrek Retold

    ★★½

    eh
    I can respect and dig a lot of what's happening from a creative point of view but the novelty kinda wore off for me around an hour in
    maybe that's just my inherent bias
    some of the segments were really nicely done but far too short
    some went on for a little bit too long
    I feel like a lot of it was trying too hard to be quirky and unique for the sake of it

    still better than watching the original though

  • Breathless

    Breathless

    ★★★

    eh
    I know french new wave is meant to be all about them jump cuts but it just comes across like they decided to edit out pauses in the conversation to trim the running time
    and what's with those black frames
    is that some super-neat thing I'm not familiar with or just bad editing or what

    man if I ever get court-martialled I want Kirk Douglas to be my lawyer

    does anyone else find it crazy that Kirk Douglas was born during the First World War, starred in a film about it 40 years later, and is still alive 100 years after the end of that war?
