    Heartland Int'l Film Fest 2/13

    Title card. Roll credits. I walk out of the screening thinking this was pretty good. A slow burn that purposefully doesn't spell out much in order to keep you on the same level as the young girl at the center of the story. Ending felt too abrupt. 6/10.

    The drive home. The traffic gives me time to process things a bit more. The ending is perfect. It only feels incomplete because we're meant to be…

    Daft Punk: "Daftendirektour"

    Streamed live on Twitch on the anniversary of their breakup, here we have a previously unreleased concert film from the duo's 1997 tour that appears to have been fully edited but shelved. The only bit that was ever made public prior to the live steam being a censored clip of "Rollin' and Scratchin'" used for that song's music video.

    In terms of the filmmaking it's serviceable considering the context in which it was made. It's often a bit too…

    Really captures the feel of the 90's in the Midwest - fine, young cannibals et all.

    "Actually the other thing this scene does, ironically, is it shocks all the fans of the book. All the people who know the end of this story are now on the edge of their seat because if we can do that then what else are we about to do?"
    - Philippa Boyens, regarding the scene of Fordo sending Sam away.

    Imagine saying that nowadays with how stupidly overprotective and entitled fans are now.

    ★★★★

    A marvelous visual feast. The mind behind The Book of Life gets the freedom to create a 4.5 hour long epic about loss, love, family and the gods that tie it all together. I can not stress enough how amazing this show looks - it's even more impressive than what Gutierrez was doing with Reel FX.

    Story moves at a blistering pace, and can become tiring if you binge this. Fortunately the series is structured as 3 "movies" cut into…

    Dofus - Book I: Julith

    ★★★★

    The French studio Ankama is widely known for their MMORPGs Dofus and its sequel Wakfu. The latter of which got its own TV series produced in-house in the late 2000's to allow the game's creators to retain creative control. This series is how I was eventually introduced to the franchise, as its Kickstarter-backed English dub was brought to Netflix in 2014. Despite the dub being hit or miss at times, I found it hard not to be fascinated by all…
