    A musical for the apocalypse.
    Ariana DeBose and Mike Faist steal the whole damn show and I hope they have long, fantastic careers after this.
    Spielberg is in top notch form here with sequences and moments that had me falling in love with the screen. This is one gorgeous looking movie. And the orchestral music was just a pure gift to listen to. My ears were in heaven for the majority of the runtime.

    I missed the screening for this film last year at LA's Animation is Film Fest because the day it screened, I found my eldest dog bleeding from the nose. A trip to the vet later we found out he likely had nasal cancer. After 18 years of spending my lifetime with that little boy, I lost him a week after.

    With that I found Marona's Fantastic Tale to immediately be one of my favorite films of all time.

    I read, not too long ago, the book written by Lucille herself 'Love, Lucy'; and it was very interesting to see a lot of those stories from that book appear here under different contexts and points of view.

    Lucy and Desi is an excellent doc that pays tribute to the gods of television. It's respectful and just personal enough that when it tackles the more painful aspects, it does so with empathy and understanding. While it's not as comprehensive in…

    What can be said about this that many and even I haven’t said before.
    Absolute masterpiece. It still hits hard at certain places; this is Won Kar Wai at his best.

    Like a lot of similar anime films that have come out recently, the animation quality is out of this world. The vistas are breathtaking, my friends!
    The film also follows another trend that we've seen recently from Japanese media, presenting us a post-apocalyptic world through an optimistic lens, it's a nice trend because it helps combat doomerism, as it turns out, life just keeps going and society can shift and adapt in all sorts of ways.

    The Daniels reached somewhere deep within themselves and created a movie that is so creative, so funny, so moving and so honest. It’s a resonating, absurdist action/adventure tale on a cosmic scale. Where the ideas are big and large but it’s emotional pull is as everyday as the sun that comes up every morning.
    It works on so many levels it’s kind of insane; there are things in this film that feel completely new. I can’t even explain it.
