    Wouldn't have expected you to like Interstella 5555 that much Stan. But I mean, Discovery set to cool anime sci-fi, what's not to like?

    Yeah, the story is nothing to write home about, but the art direction is good and the soundtrack is amazing. That's also the reason why I watched, and enjoyed to a minor extent, Tron: Legacy, despite hating the first Tron. Daft Punk are just great; I'm not much of a music lover and they're one of the very few artists that I bothered to listen to their whole discography. It's really a shame they split up.

    > 2. What's Up, Doc?

    My favorite comedy ever! Interesting to see Sean Baker say: "Not my cup of tea however..."

    End of the year, 277 or 278 viewed, I lost track, don't want to do that again. Going back to normal pre-pandemic watching habits, think I'll also finish going through all my physical media collection.

    Movie Log 2022)

    1. Stalag 17 (1953, Tubi)
    2. Singin' in the Rain (1952, Public Library)
    3. The French Dispatch (2021, RedBox DVD)
    4. The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974, Tubi)
    5. The Gunfighter (1950, Tubi)
    6. Licorice Pizza (2021, Theater Viewing)
    7. The Cremator (1969, Criterion Blu-ray)
    8. Nope (2022, Theater Viewing)
    9. Coco (2017, Disney+)
    10. The Insider (1999, Hulu)
    Blog!

    And it's happened once again
    I'll turn to a friend
    Someone that understands
    And sees through the master plan
    But everybody's gone
    And I've been here for too long
    To face this on my own
    Well, I guess this is growing up
