Weathering with You - Movie Review

Weathering with You is the new film from Makoto Shinkai, the director of the highly successful film Your Name,  the film is about a  high school boy who has moved to Tokyo, make friends with a girl who have the ability to manipulate the weather, both have no revenue, so they decide to invest in that ability with people exchanging money for her prayers for rain, and of course a lot of people really want that good weather, so they started a business, and as expected this thin going on here starts causing complications in their relationship.



With Your Name, the director  Shinkai entered into the level of favorite anime directors of all time, the anticipation for the movie was high, so I was looking forward to see it and this is once again a gorgeous anime film, most shots are filled with such great details, even brand names are exactly the same look as it is in real life.
 
Movie is about Morishima Hodaka, a boy that moved to Tokyo hating his former life and he's trying to find a new wave, so the movie is trying to make you feel sympathtic for the characters, and I really liked this movie although it is not even close to be great as your name was, which for some fans, it wouldnt be a fair comparison, but since it's his last movie it's gonna happen, this movie is a disappointment to me in that regard, it certainly doesn't have the raw drama of that movie unfortunately, this movie in a way is a copy and paste of the body work of your name, so if you like your name , I guess you'll probably really love this, that was a big disappointment though, I was sad to see that the structure was essentially copied for someone who made something that felt so original and vital in your name, but Weathering with You felt sort of like an attempt to recreate that success without trying anything new, I can't get into spoilers but you can almost break it down to scene structure, and it's not that your name was the first time market of Shinkai ever made a movie about star-crossed lovers, he's been doing that for a long time, it's just that the film was so special,  with it those are the Heighest expectation from Shinkai


Weathering with You is a very good movie with beautiful animation and characters that are sympathetic, that you'll probably enjoy watching, but since it's another film so similar to your name and it's nowhere near as good as that, it can't help but be a little disappointing, and it's honestly a little weird for me to say that because I liked watching this movie and everything about it is really good, but it's going to suffer from those comparisons, this movie's greatest strengths lie in the fact that it is so beautifully rendered, it's just unfortunate that it's going to suffer from those comparisons to your name, and I wish that he had done something more original this time around instead of essentially trying to recreate that same success.

Joker - Movie Review

Joker wad directed by Todd Phillips and stars Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, a man who feels abandoned by everyone around him, he points people towards offers and deals clown dressed, he lives in a rotten flat with a sick mom, he's often get hit and punked in the streets and because of all this, his world slowly begins to fall down apart and finds himself being pushed for mad violence.



The Joker is one of the best comic book villains, but in films past as you know, whenever that character was involved in the movie, Batman was also there, so there was a good and evil presence now we're just focusing on this person and his origin, at first I was a little averse to that because I loved the idea of the Joker not really having an origin, I loved him being a constant, the idea that he has just always been this way and his past is so murky that he's even more terrifying, Nolan understood that pretty well with his Dark Knight film, but that's not to say that origin has never …

Bad Education - Movie Review

Bad Education was directed by Cory Finley and stars Hugh Jackman, Ray Romano, and Alison Janie, and it's a true story of a beloved superintendent of New York's Rosalind School District, his friends and  relatives and staff become the prime suspects in the biggest public school scandal in American history.



Bad Education is a brilliant movie with extremely excellent writing from Mike  Mackowski, who actually was a student at the high school that this movie depicts, so he has a first-hand account of some of these events and understands the fallout. 
Hugh Jackman as Frank Tassone plays a  super intendant that everyone loves, everybody is inspired by this person, he remembers all of the student's names very easily, he knows what all of the kids want to do, he will make time for anyone,  he will sit down with any student and make sure that they feel like they are loved and that they feel like they're protected, he even runs into older students he hasn't seen in years and rem…

Sonic the Hedgehog - Movie Review

Sonic The Hedgehog directed by first-timer Jeff Fowler, starring Jim Carrey, James Marsden and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, as you know Sonic the Hedgehog is a beloved Sega character, he's basically Sega's Mario and in this film, Sonic is residing in the small town of Green Hills, where James Marsden is a police officer and when the government discovers Sonic, they deployed Dr. Robotnik played by Carrie, to track him down. 
I think everyone that talks about movies at some point, has referenced how terrible the first character design was, this is a rather unprecedented event, so a lot of fans showed a decline in how bad the character design was, and they actually fixed it.



I hoped that the film would at least present Sonic in a good light, have it actually be like him in the movie and gratefully he is, I don't see any Sonic fans leaving this movie disappointed with the portray of the character, I think that Sonic in the movie was great, the voice over for him is actual…
