If you’re not familiar with Rurouni Kenshin, this isn’t the place to start. But if you’re a fan, The Final (the final what?!) is thoroughly entertaining and the most respectful and accurate recreation of the manga that we’re ever going to see.
Movie reviews for the passionate of film
Month: June 2021
Luca (2021) – Movie Review
Much more intimate and personal than other Pixar films, Luca is a delightful summer tale of friendship and discovery.
A Quiet Place Part II (2021) – Movie Review
lace, I’m confident you’ll like A Quiet Place Part II, because it keeps all the elements that made the first film great, and not for nothing, also some of its shortcomings.
Night of the Kings (La nuit des rois) (2021) – Movie Review
Night of the Kings transports us to a beguiling world of magical realism, tales as old as times, and shadowy plots for power or survival.
Weathering with You (Tenki no Ko) (2020) – Movie Review
What draws me about CoMix Wave Films’ style is that it is an approach to art that is deliberately, intensely devoted to portraying the mundane over the extraordinary. Ugly backdrops are made beautiful by the care put into painting them.
