Just watched a CG anime flick called Harlock: Space Pirate. Like Space Battleship Yamato, Harlock has a long history in the anime oeuvre, but the movie is self-contained enough to avoid confusion for new viewers (like me). The story is kind of WALL-E by way of steampunk space pirates, which lends itself well to gorgeous space visuals and starship battles (the laser beams look great), but it's also heavy on exposition (no kidding, a voiceover starts DURING the opening text crawl), the final conflict is overlong, the very ending has a weird Dread Pirates Roberts angle that doesn't make any sense, and Harlock himself is really a supporting player in his own movie. Not a bad 110 minutes, but could have been better.

Miyazaki's Spirited Away hits Blu-ray on June 6th. *takes deep breath* AND IT'S ABOUT BLOODY TIME TOO.

Michael Fassbender's look in that Slow West trailer gives me a little bit of a Henry Fonda vibe.

Lookin' good in that Deadpool suit, Reynolds. Just don't tell me what you did to that poor bearskin rug AFTER the photo was taken............ Okay maybe just a hint.

Good Morning Vietnam is a fantastic dramedy, balancing rapid-fire wit with some expected dark turns throughout and particularly in its third act. It's also highly exemplary of Williams's talent; he was a fuckin' madman, and even when starring in crap, he always invested himself 100% into it, and it showed.

Spielberg directing Ready Player One only makes perfect sense. He lit the fuse on the 80s nostalgia-bomb the book is built on in the first place.

And as an added bonus, we get this delicious slice of Dormer-brand DAYUM today too!

I'll end my Battle of the Five Armies ramblings with one last question for all: What do you think the significance is of Bilbo's hesitance to call Thorin his friend until he was back home in front of the blissfully ignorant Shire folk?
