Is this how time normally passes? Really slowly, in the right order?

K-On! Movie Pre-Review

Hirasawa Yui is my spirit animal.

Update: The big problem with watching any K-On! is that their songs are terrible earworms.  I now have Rice is a Side Dish stuck in my head.


(Couldn't find a clip of them actually performing this song, though they do it once in the TV series and again in the movie.  This is the movie version, where Yui does an unscheduled One more time! and the other girls go Whut? but manage to jump back in.)

My favourite has to be Listen, the season 2 first-half ending, featuring cake-fairy Mio:

A Monster In Paris Pre-Review

I have nothing bad to say about this film.  Four stars.

I was going to suggest that perhaps Lucille's accent wanders a bit, but I checked, and she's played by Vanessa Paradis, who is French, from Paris, and plays the role in both the English and French versions, the only major cast member who did so.

The Adventures Of Tintin Pre-Review

I'm toying with the idea of Tintin as an anti-hero, like Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné, so completely obsessed with getting the story (no matter how trivial) that he is entirely unaware of the disaster he leaves in his wake.

This film did not grab me.  There is one part that is very, very, very good, but that's a few minutes of honey in almost two hours of cold porridge.

Inside Out Pre-Review

In which Pixar takes Dennett's "Cartesian Theater" perhaps a little too literally.

Cute film, and yet a stronger story than Brave.  The model of mental processes is almost the diametric opposite of reality, but I'm willing to let that slide.

Silence In The The Library / Forests Of The Dead - Again

Just rewatched these.  How often do you get TV shows where an episode follows directly on from one that was broadcast seven and a half later?

Crank Pre-Review

A touching love story.

No, really.

No, really, really.

I enjoyed it more than I expected, though it was slower-paced than I expected.
