    Aside from it being one of the most highly respected, talked about and referenced animated movies of all time?

    An emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation.

    You see, Bennet critiqued it in a very specific way to offer an alternative viewpoint and perspective of the film. His point is that there wasn't much substance beyond that of human plight.

    As a display of personal emotion regarding its subject matter, it's widely viewed as a masterpiece of the human condition.

    This has been on my watchlist for years, but I never had a chance to see it since it wasn't available anywhere. Not on Netflix, not on VRV, nowhere legal. Today, I went to the theater to watch this month's Ghibli film by Fathom Events (still running tomorrow subbed and on Wednesday dubbed!).

    It was fine. There really isn't that much else to say here; what you see is what you get folks. It was quite saddening to see that these people starving to death simply because all of the people they could rely on had either already died, or were unreachable. Even after the war was over, relief wasn't distributed across Japan immediately, and those without any money left...

    The sound effects were really something to hear; I'm not sure if it was because the movie was mixed the way it was, or if it had to do with the speakers in the theater, but you could very distinctly feel the SFX. When the coins are dropped on the ground, the thud really comes through, which was quite surprising since I hadn't heard a game or a show with that much impact in its SFX for a long, long time.

    That's it. Next up: The Hogfather (just got on Netflix DVD), and to continue Hunter x Hunter (on episode 46).

    Imagine being this retarded

    Jaeger is some of the best hot trash in a while. It teeters between being partially serious and just a fun time.
