ISLE OF DOGS Review

Isle of Dogs has all the usual trappings of a Wes Anderson film. It has a bit of a wit, some dark undertones and a bleak, but nevertheless, happy ending.

THE TALE OF PRINCESS KAGUYA Review

In a world of three-act plots and character arcs, Isao Takahata's The Tale of Princess Kaguya reminds us that stories don't have to be neat to be accessible. Studio Ghibli's final film (for the foreseeable future) is a retelling of a Japanese folktale with the intimacy of a bedtime story and the breadth of an epic. It is illustrated with the utmost care – with creative, balanced compositions eclipsing the need for broad illustrative strokes. Takahata's latest masterwork doesn't explain itself, nor is it interested in doing so; its tangents make for a rich tapestry of plaintive beauty and immeasurable wisdom, and what more could we ask for?

STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS: THE LOST MISSIONS Blu-ray Review

Most die-hard fans of the Star Wars universe are already aware of the popular Clone Wars television series, however the CG animation and overall tone of the show made me think this was one for the kiddies and not something I’d be interested in. Thankfully, I can say I was incorrect in that assumption, as I am now ready and willing to consume all six seasons of this highly entertaining galactic nerd-fest that stays surprisingly true to the films, despite its cartoonish demeanor.
