    Shan Yu is my favourite Disney villain and “Be a Man” is my favourite Disney song.

    A film about grimey, seedy people in a slick beautiful neon world. 
    Hits all my favourite story beats of classic noir novels but also twists tropes delightfully. 

    The lead character is one dimensional but the story doesn’t need him to be anything but a force of nature, brooding and stomping towards his goal.

    Paul Rudd steals the show. He is the most versatile actor working today. 

    It was quite confronting at times but I always get a thrill when a film makes think “they aren’t going to do this are they?”


    A must watch for fans of classic noir tales.

    I love this movie but I can admit that it is very very flawed. 
    The story and design is amazing but the execution and acting leaves so much to be desired. 
    I've realized that I enjoy talking about Star Wars more than I enjoy watching Star Wars.
