All in all, I think that Ao Haru Ride was very poignant and beautiful. It slowly told its story but made it complete so as not to leave out the essential parts of the manga on which it was based. I’m glad that it had a happy ending though. I felt like I deserved that, after this emotional, beautiful film put me in the wringer. Easily one of my favorite Japanese teen movies.
All in all, “A Dog’s Way Home” succeeded in telling the story of a beautiful friendship and an incredible journey between a human and his dog. Truth be told, the trailer basically covers all the bases. Still, you have to watch the entire film to fully experience this beautiful, entertaining, touching and all around feel good tale. There have been plenty of dog movies made but this one will definitely be one that leaves a mark on your heart.
After I’ve seen The Kissing Booth in its entirety, I am impressed by the simple, formulaic rom com that held its own in terms of originality. Plus, its stars are all super cute.
All in all, Ready Player One was tons of fun. It had a great cast that gelled well together and it had a very relateable and rootable story that was told properly without being overpowered by the CGI. It had a great core message that can be applied to today’s world, reality is what matters. Word.
