    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    ★★★★★

    Although not technically the first Studio Ghibli movie, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind set the foundation for everything that we have come to love most in their long body of work from over the years – we nonetheless still recognize it as one of their films. Being only the second feature film directed by Hayao Miyazaki as well as the first to have been based upon his own property, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind not only…

    ★★★★★

    I’ve been on the verge of suicide at numerous points of my life. I keep trying to convince myself that everything is going to get better; yet nothing I find out of my life is set to really change that. Even my own peers seem to be of no use to me anymore, even when I feel like they’re supposed to be the ones I trust most. My whole life feels like I’m just stuck inside of a void that…

    It's always compelling solely for how James Caan brings this film his all when you're watching his compulsive gambling slowly bring him into a deeper and darker underworld.

    (NOTE 12/02/2019): This is not exactly my best writing - as I was only starting to develop my skills as a teenager with writing single paragraph-long reviews, but eventually I plan to write a more detailed review explaining why this is my favourite film of all time to take over this space. I will leave this old review up for keepsakes, but I will also include the new text to be visible first in the foreseeable future.

    Cats

    I'm going to write a full review at some point, but for now, please enjoy these unpublished Twitter drafts I prepped up.

    I heard this movie was horny but I certainly didn't expect the entire Eyes Wide Shut orgy scene but with cats.

    Get Out: *is the scariest Blumhouse movie of the decade*
    Tom Hooper: "hold my beer"

    If this movie made me suffer the mental image of Taylor Swift and Idris Elba having sex as cats, I'll pass it…
