I saw Edward Scissorhands yesterday.
A gentle man, with scissors for hands, is brought into a new community after living in isolation.
It was alright: I did really warm up to Edward as a character, though I didn't get emotional as I thought I would. His character design is pretty excellent and did a good job at communicating visually that he didn't fit in.
The film is full of odd beats and dialogue. I usually like weird movies but this just left me saying "...okay?" and didn't really win me over. Heck, Terminator 2 make me jerk more tears than this film did!
I also found it weird how he kills a dude and pretty much nobody cares that he's dead! The suburban folk just see the bloodied corpse and are kinda shocked, but they completely forget about him almost right afterwards and just leave! So it can feel pretty contrived at times, witch nagged me, But hey: I'm still glad I saw it. If not only to say that i've seen it.

Okami The Wolf is my crazy half!
Edward Scissorhands is an oddity to begin with. But it's meant to be that way. (And to think that he grew up to become Captain Jack Sparrow is kinda amazing!)

We tend to rewatch movies many times. One of our fave directors is M Night Shamalan. 'Signs', 'The Village', & 'Lady In The Water' are his top 3, to us anyways.

I think the last movie I saw in theaters was Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It was alright I guess? I never read the book, but the movie was... average. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I liked the actress playing Miss Peregrine, she was great. The monsters immediately reminded me of Slenderman. I think my favorite character was the asshole kid who's peculiarity was using hearts to bring life to these mangled creatures he made dual for fun. A puppeteer of sorts. He was definitely the most interesting.

Have you seen The Visit yet? That's an M. night movie.

Recently saw The Hateful Eight for the second time. It thought it was quite good. Quentin Tarantino directed it. Although the running time was a bit long (2 hours, 45 minutes), and the pacing was a bit slow, it led to a pretty entertaining 3rd act. I love pretty much all of Quentin's movies (Jackie Brown being my least favorite of his).

I'm glad it won an award for Best Music Score.

Saw Sword of the Stranger. Again. Fucking love that movie.

And Studio Ghibli. The movies they make are just pure gold.

Yes! Studio Ghibli has made some of the most beautiful animations ever!
Howl's Moving Castle is my personal fave :3
Nice. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Princess Mononoke are mine. Howl's a close third.

One of the most badass animated movies was Heavy Metal! Hell of a great soundtrack!!

Heavy Metal was interesting. I liked the different art styles, but trying to create a real coherent story out of it all was...a bit lacking for me. It was good I saw it though. The rotoscoping was amazing.

Haters Gonna Hate
Empire of Corpses, amazing movie about what happens when you go to far 7/10

Letter to Momo, super funny yet tear inducing story of a girl sent 3 spirits to look after her when her father dies. 8.5/10

Patema Inverted, a global disaster leaves the worlds gravity reversed and caused much of the human race to 'fall' into the sky. 10/10

King of Thorns, HUGE FUCKING DISAPPOINTMENT 0/10
READ THE MANGA.

Anyone ever seen Tusk? It's about a crazy old man who turns Justin Long into a walrus...literally! One of all time favorite directors, Kevin Smith, directed it. You gotta see it to believe it.

I've wanted to see it. Always kinda took Kevin Smith at face-value until I saw "Red State".

Just rewatched "Natural Born Killers". I enjoy it, but can understand the controversy behind it. And it wasn't nearly as good as it was the first time I saw it (alone, sophmore in high school, under some heavy mind altering substances)

i watched "heathers" the other day and let's just say it made me feel a little desensitized? it was a good movie, but after so much killing and the end especially made me not care anymore what happened. i came for mean girls and left with really, really bloodthirsty meangirls with big hair (it was made in the 1980's).

i've been thinking about watching "letter to momo", however i was worried it would be slow paced. is it pretty well paced, and is it worth watching?
