    Millennium Actress

    ★★★★★

    I must admit that my expectations for this one were somewhat tempered. Millennium Actress is the red-headed stepchild of the Satoshi Kon films; it's not as renowned as Perfect Blue, as beloved as Tokyo Godfathers, or as notorious as Paprika. Fittingly, the story at its core is more simple than any of Kon's other three films as well. The audience will find no psychological twists and turns, no city-wide odyssey, no surreal dream world. Millennium Actress is about a woman,…

    K-ON! The Movie

    ★★★★

    I haven't seen a second of the show K-ON!, so I had no attachment to any of these characters going in, so you can take it from me when I say these girls rock. Naoko Yamada's work is always great, and this is obviously no exception. I was surprised to hear these adorable anime girls absolutely shredding on those instruments, though. Cute, low stakes, and just generally pleasant. I might watch the show at some point, this was just a nice experience.

    Elvis

    ★★½

    I don't know if I could possibly call this movie good, but I will say that I had a good time with it. If you're going to see this, see it while it's still in theaters, because I cannot imagine how fucking stupid it would feel while watching it at home on a computer screen, especially with all the close-ups of Elvis's cock in the first act. The top review on here jokingly calls it a two-and-a-half hour long trailer,…

    Monica and Friends: Lessons

    ★½

    Dumb, boring swill that was clearly only made with kids in mind. I haven't seen the first one, but I doubt that would make much of a difference. It's kinda cool that there's an underlying theme of body positivity, since the main kid is kinda heavyset and it's never remarked about, but other than that, there's not much of value here. I know that it's based on some long-running comic that some Brazilians might be nostalgic for, but damn, this sucks. Letterboxd really needs to do something about the Brazilian bot accounts that are actively attempting to undermine their ranking system.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    I don't want to oversell this movie, but Everything Everywhere All At Once is the millennial equivalent of The Godfather. I consider it to be in the top ten films I've ever seen in my life, and the stunning balancing act required to pull it off almost certainly ensures that no movie like this will ever be made again. It lives up to its title, it really has everything, it has some of the greatest fight scenes in cinema history…
