  • The Magnificent Ambersons

    The Magnificent Ambersons

    ★★★★

    There is obviously a lot of movie missing here, but what is here is still worthwhile. A bunch of great performances including Cotton, Baxter, and Moorehead. I just wish we could’ve seen the whole thing.

  • Liz and the Blue Bird

    Liz and the Blue Bird

    ★★★½

    You don’t have to have seen Sound Euphonium first, but it does help. 

    Story of two third year girls who have a solo together on a concert piece. One of the girls loves the other one, the other one is kind of care free. 

    More beautiful animation from Kyoto Animation (Haruhi Suzumiya, K-On, A Silent Voice). Not as strong as the main series of A Silent Voice, but this is still a lovely expansion of the main series.

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion

    ★★★½

    A fun Clusterf*ck. You need a Ph.D in anime to be able to follow everything that happens. Luckily I have one and I enjoyed what I saw. Diminishes the greatness of the original series, but only by a little.

  • Certain Women

    Certain Women

    ★★★½

    Three different stories of women connected by their love of cheeseburgers.
