    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


    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


    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.

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