REVIEWS: Tomorrowland, When Marnie Was There, Mad Max: Fury Road & Pitch Perfect 2
Tomorrowland: "a massive letdown. Lacking in visual storytelling, emotional resonance and spectacle, it doesn’t feel like a Brad Bird movie at all."
When Marnie Was There: "doesn’t offer the level of fantasy or adventure that previous Ghibli releases have. Instead, it’s a surprisingly simple tale that coolly declares loneliness may be unavoidable, but happiness is a choice. As much as I admire the message, I have to admit the medium made me crave something more whimsical or visually inventive that what Yonebayashi delivers."
