    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

    ★★

    Minor improvement to Mummy Returns. Can’t stand the recasts, they threw the character dynamics totally off.

  • Whisper of the Heart

    Whisper of the Heart

    ★★★★

    Lovely small-stakes melodrama with a twist of fantasy. I think a young kid would be let down by how little we see of The Baron and how so few supernatural occurrences take place. The narrative focus on the authorship and self-discovery was an angle I wasn’t expecting and I found that genuinely meaningful.

    J.J. is going to movie prison for this. You can’t just pick and choose what you want. You can’t have Reddit write the movie for you. 

    The visual effects, sound design, and concept artists deserve all the credit in the galaxy to make this piece of trash watchable.

    I offered this trilogy friendship and it spat in my face.
