Fast Five Review: Pom Poko (1994)

PomPoko

Review by Paul

1. Did you like it?

Yes

2. Why/Why not?

I don’t usually like animie but this was enjoyable. It has an interesting, fast-paced storyline with a fun soundtrack. The charming depiction of Raccoon dogs in rural Japan serves as a warning about the downsides of environmental destruction for the sake of progress.

3. “You would enjoy this movie if…”

You like animation. Young children will love this film.

4. “This series made me think…”

Of the clash of progress, employment and preservation of nature.

5. Stars out of five?

Fast Five Review: Gone Girl (2014)

GoneGirl

Review by Paul

1. Did you like it?

Yes

2. Why/Why not?

Features a twisting storyline which generates a level of doubt and uncertainty matching real life incidents. Gone Girl holds an undercurrent of humorous and light heartedness which serves to balance a storyline and style which is dark and ominous.

3. “You would enjoy this movie if…”

You enjoy films which make you think and second guess yourself and enjoy being engrossed in storylines.

4. “This series made me think…”

Explores the themes of media responsibility in its portrayal of criminal suspects and the how society views accused individuals.

5. Stars out of five?
