  2. But i’ve been wanting to release some more movie reviews like my hacksaw ridge post. Movies include Alfonso Cuaron’s “Children of Men”, Lenny Abrahamson’s “Room”, and Barry Jenkin’s “Moonlight”.

  3. As for anime? I’ve been sitting on a nearly completed review of the anime movie “The Dog of Flanders” for nearly a year now, and a fairly lengthy Porter Robinson’s Shelter post.

    And with a lot of conflicts over twitter regarding Shinsekai Yori, I really want to rewatch and review that series and show why I believe it to be a masterpiece. Also maybe an Assassination Classroom review.
