    Chang: A Drama of the Wilderness

    ★★★

    Can tell a lot is staged in this documentary but it's a well done film. Especially for its age. Some incredible shots, don't know how they got so close to the animals. But overall it's just a whole lot of animals dying and being hurt. Oh, and they talk.

    ★★★★½

    I fell hard for this technicolor melodrama. Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson are a incredible duo. I can see how this isn't for everyone cause the cheesiness is cranked to 11. But it's also quite dark and doesn't see any light till the very end. Great way to be introduced to Douglas Sirk.

    How the actual fuck did I have this at 3 and a half stars...

    Absolutely beautiful.

    I remember for some reason being annoyed by the music and how Adam Sandler acted in this on my first watch. But now I connect with Adam Sandler and love the music. How the music goes from being very off beat to enchanting and classical (almost sounds like Amarcord) just fits the moods of the movie perfectly.

    It's great how you can go back to a film after a period of time and appreciate it more and connect even more. Especially when it becomes a new favourite.

    I am completely shook.

    I haven't had this incredible of an experience in a theatre since "Her", and even that doesn't come close to this. I've never had so many emotions flow through me. I went from laughing to coming close to crying. Only reason I didn't was cause my friend was there.

    This movie doesn't miss a note. The music is beautiful and I felt like everyone in the theatre was going to break into dance come the end.…
