    Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

    ★★★★

    He was always alone, always by himself. Never anyone to share the game. He lived in another world. He was that kind of guy."

    In my opinion, there are some script problems lying around; some characters deserved more depth/screen time and the main humanistic theme of the movie basically echoes back to the beautiful Grand Finale of the TV Show.

    In particular, the clever and original choice…

    ★★★

    Jack talked about how music is essentially twelve notes between any octave. Twelve notes and the octave repeats. It's the same story told over and over, forever. All any artist can offer the world is how they see those twelve notes. That's it. He loved how you see them.

    This quote actually exposes the whole problem of this movie.
    Where are the ideas?
    The movie undoubtedly works. It's a nice, entertaining film. Songs are great. Cooper made a good job…
