it's undisputedly the best disney film ever made. it's moving, it's dark, it's wholesome and it has integrity. i grew up with this film and it's the only one that watching it years later, i can still appreciate as a stand-alone film, without considering the nostalgia factor. absolutely wonderful and inspired.

Interstellar
Interstellar (2014)

one of the most ambitious films i've ever seen. it goes beyond any other in what it tries to achieve. of course, it's flawed in many ways, but when you're aiming for such high complexity, when you're taking film somewhere no one else has gone before, then that's to be expected, and that becomes forgivable. this film is the ideal definition of high concept, an executes highly allegorical, religious/spiritual ideologies and worldviews through the guise of science. it's definitely an experience.

it's proficient as far as thrillers go, but very pedestrian and obvious. there's definitely an effect the film is going for and a way it wants us to feel, and it uses visual/auditory/editing manipulation to achieve that effect, which is immediately off-putting. also, the film feels extremely dated in 2014, since the technological/NSA sphere is completely different. though to be fair, that's not the film's fault, but the result of our rapid technological advancement. regardless though, just okay.

An Unmarried Woman

there's definitely a level of bravery involved here, both in the subject matter chose, and the way the issues are explored. i can't imagine there being a lot of female-centric films prior to this one, and this set precedent for an entire genre and movement of film. having said that, it lacked emotional authenticity and was unoriginal in terms of filmmaking and visual language. it's a shame that a film that was a pioneer in so many ways, failed on such a basic level. such wasted potential.
