I'm in the future. Like hundreds of years in the future. I've been dead for centuries.
Oh, lovely, you're a cheery one aren't you?

Wonders Never Cease

Turns out that there's a recent film adaptation of Heinlein's All You Zombies that reportedly doesn't suck.

All You Zombies was short, but very dense; there should be enough there to make a full-length film without cutting or padding.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Pre-Review

Good film.  Beautiful.  Loud.

Whether it's a great film depends on what comes after.  Time will tell.  For now, if you like Star Wars at all, this is worth seeing.

Arrietty Pre-Review

Ah, that's more like it.

Perhaps not Ghibli's best film, but Ghibli's best films are transcendent, and this actually doesn't fall that far short.

So it's slow moving, and the only real tension is surface tension (which they got right!), but it is beautifully animated and lyrically directed and utterly charming.

Recommended.

300 Pre-Pre-Review

Thermopylae as myth?  I can handle that.

(20 minutes in.)  No I can't.  I'm going to watch Arrietty instead.

Frozen Pre-Review

Disappointingly by-the-numbers Disney flick.

Two things no-one seems to notice.

One: The entire mess is the trolls' fault.  Don't take advice from rocks.

Two: Elsa is basically Doctor Manhattan in heels.

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.
