    But I’m Letting Go

    ★★★★½

    This is a rare time that I’m reviewing a short film on this account (I have a Letterboxd account where I review short films called “JusttheShorts”), but I am such a huge fan of NIKI that I had to give her exposure on here. Quick context, NIKI is an Indonesian artist that I’ve been listening to since 2018, and she is personally one of my favorite singers. She released three music videos prior to this short “Before”, “Oceans & Engines” and…

Lots of nostalgia rewatching this.…

    Kimba, the White Lion

    ★★★★

    DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a review of the movie, "Kimba the White Lion." This is a review of the YouTube video made by Adam Johnston of YMS, or YourMovieSucksDOTorg, on his most recent video, "YMS: Kimba the White Lion," in which he takes an in depth look into debunking the claim that Disney's 1994 film "The Lion King" is a ripoff of the Japanese anime TV show "Kimba the White Lion." I contacted Letterboxd asking why this wasn't available to…
