Hayao Miyazaki

The Wind Rises had looked to be the last thing that we were going to get from Hayao Miyazaki, after his retirement was announced. He had been involved in the slightest of ways in the “planning” of his son, GoruMiyazaki’s Read more…


Old M Night Shymalan

I read some reviews of this movie that said that it moves too quickly for you to feel anything for the characters. I think that speed of storytelling dumps you right there on the beach with the characters of the Read more…
