When Strange gave Thanos the stone to save Stark I rolled my eyes because the situation was so similar. Luckily they redeemed that.

Re: RIP Isao Takahata (1935-2018)

I've only seen Fireflies , Only Yesterday , and Kaguya , and they are all excellent. Definitely comparable to Miyazaki's best works.

Re: Wonder (2017)

Saw this today. Great performances all around, especially from Tremblay, Roberts, and Vidovic. 8/10 for me.

Has anyone else seen this film?

Re: DVD/Blu-ray Release

Ummm... anyone else having trouble getting the collection? I preordered three weeks ago on Amazon, and it just says "arriving today by 8pm." Except... it hasn't even shipped out yet. Their page shows it's temporarily out of stock. It's not available on Best Buy's site either, nor is there even a si...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

I can see how it may come across lowbrow, but religious/faith movies really don't connect with me. Bought the ticket because of the Oscar hype doe.
