    Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

    ★★★★★

    Transcending space and time, humans and Evas. That doesn't matter anymore. Take my hand. Let's end it together. All of us.

    Reliving pain, overcoming grief, lost memories. The pain of destruction, the grief of losing everyone, the memories you'll never be able to relive again. Or can you?

    If 1.0 was a recreation, 2.0 was a reimagination, and 3.0 was a deconstruction, then 3.0+1.0 is the reconstruction of that deconstruction, except that it bears no similarities. This is not the…

  • Happy Together

    Happy Together

    ★★★★★

    There's a lot of people who I don't talk to anymore. Sometimes, it's just by the circumstances of life, but sometimes it's because we just can't coexist anymore. This isn't just about romantic love; Happy Together isn't about just that. It's also about the chance meetings we have, the special, one-time moments in life; a moment between two people that will only happen once, never twice, but still the moment never feels important until it's over. When I look back…

    Malignant

    ★★★½

    Giallo madness infused and integrated into Wan's excessively digital horror. It's a film that doesn't hold back, doubling down on almost everything from the campy melodrama and horror to the nonsensical decisions and story developments, but that's probably what makes this Malignant so special; Wan's not doing anything masterful here but he's not trying to make another boring run-of-the-mill horror again - this is unique and refreshing. I mean, where do you find gore and comedy mixing this perfectly in mainstream horror cinema? Always great to see my Malaysian filmmakers shine like this.

    ★★★★

    They drive, they play, they live life to the fullest. They live in innocence, sheltered and yet they are adventurous souls, searching for the next big thrill. They express each other with love, but one so passionate that is only inevitable to collapse and self-destruct.

    Nothing lasts forever. It never really does. They were living life on borrowed time; the good hyperfocused, the bad only accumulating outside of their metaphorical bubble. These four young men and women are only trying…

    Minari

    ★★★½

    Minari is certainly an interesting film - praised almost universally at early releases and constantly brought up in the top lists of critics - there's an almost fanatical following for it currently before the imminent awards season, and yet, what it is is a simple, independent style, straightforward retelling of a family's journey in a foreign land. There's certainly some charm and beauty to it in that it covers the lives of Korean-Americans, but representation isn't exactly enough to make…

    This was amazing. I love the artstyle and I love how much Tamagawa was able to do with the film in just under 3 minutes. Can studios and companies fund these people for the next big animated film instead of another boring Disney cashgrab, because that would be great!
