    Moana

    ★★★★

    Epic Disney Hawaiian musical adventure follows young Moana's vision quest to save her blighted island from the persecution of the ancient Polynesian Gods of Oceania...

    And the story itself is torn from the sacred texts of Ancient Polynesian mythos...

    And it focuses on Moana; the daughter of Tui; chieftain of the Motunui Island...Which really makes her one of the Disney Princesses... Although I think the authentic cultural term for the children of the chief is "Oheneba..."

    But anyway... THIS Polynesian…

    Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

    ★★★★★

    Hilarious and entertaining chapter in the whole Wallace and Gromit Legendarium follows a lycanthropic curse; and our heroes' epic attempts to overcome it.

    As Harvest Home approaches this rural enclave of Great Britain...One autumn...Wallace slowly learns he has a tendency to sprout rabbit ears and shapeshift every night...And then attack the local Wigan/Lancashire farmlands during the full moon...As a result of one of his own experiments gone awry...

    So this is the latest animated masterpiece from The House Of Mouse that everyone's been crowing about, (no pun intended)...

    This is Disney's newest classic; Zootopia...Which is all about this parallel universe where Animals have achieved parity with humans...

    Infact, it's a completely animal-run society; filled with all manner of birds and beasts from the animal kingdom; hustling about this big mega-metropolis called Zootopia; standing upright; wearing suits, talking, laughing and interacting... Driving places, holding jobs, buying and selling... Just…

    Past Lives

    ★★★★

    Powerful, semi-autobiographical, Oscar-nominated romantic drama from the famous A24 Studio and new-comer director Celine Strong...

    It examines 24 years in the lives of childhood friends from Korea; Nora and Hae Sung...And their on-again, off-again relationship...And the fateful event that happens when they're 12; that separates them; and seals their fates in many ways...

    And in many ways this feels like a Korean version of When Harry Met Sally; another romantic drama which also covers a long gestating friendship which eventually…
