As enjoyable and humorous as the show. Can guarantee you will have a good laugh with the movie.
Absolutely incredible from start to finish!
I really enjoy series like this that give us a deeper look into the things that help our world function and along with Richard Hammond's usual charm, this is very entertaining and educational. Episode 9 was kind of unnecessary since it was just a collection of unused shots from the previous episodes compiled into a single episode.
One of those shows where you can watch a couple of episodes and be instantly hooked on the ridiculous and hilarious storylines, never laughed so much at show in such a long time.
Lots of stupid humour that will definitely make you laugh alongside some really good music and some hilarious celeb cameos
Honestly after all the hype I’ve heard about Breaking Bad I thought I would finally sit down and get an understanding of all the breaking bad references I’ve heard over the years and why the show is so highly praised. I was always skeptical of starting this show since Brian Cranston has always been (still is) Hal (Malcolm in the Middle) for me and I didn’t want to start thinking about him as Walter White/ Heisenberg. Another thing that stopped me originally from watching was that I thought there would be too much emphasis on the drugs (making, selling, etc.) than the psychology of it (power complex, turf wars, murder, etc.) but luckily it focuses more on the later.
The first two seasons were rather slow & repetitive in my opinion, constantly going back and forth about making meth (or not to) and Walter's physical/ psychological condition. After season three (more precisely after the introduction of Gus) I think the show definitely picked up due to the exponential growth of operations and looming threats.
Some things I didn’t like about the show were the unnecessary character stories (Marie’s shoplifting/ lying, Skyler’s cheating, etc.) even if they gave us a deeper understanding of what the person is like. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the end scenes playing out bit by bit at the start of the episodes leading to the season finale since you knew it wasn’t going to be that detrimental to our main characters (which was mostly correct) and personally felt like it to took away some of the anticipation (in terms of storytelling). I also watched the series on Blu-ray and was rather annoyed that the subs for the Spanish/ German weren't embedded which meant I had to keep turning on & off the English subs to understand what was being said.
Overall I was happy with how the series ended (except how a few characters died) which made me happy since a lot of very popular series generally have very crappy endings (like Game of Thrones).
Good start but after we transitioned over to the US the show just went downhill for me, we spent WAY too much time trying to comprehend what's good? what's evil? and is suicide okay? The finale felt rather sporadic and didn't address the core events of the series (Shiniki, Magase's goal/ aims etc.) and the cliffhanger just left more questions (that I doubt we will ever have officially answered) than answers.
Highly enjoyable to watch, better than I thought it would be. The twist ending was rather obvious but it was beautiful to see it play out and learn about the justification behind it.
Disappointing movie. A lot of the story felt predictable (plot twists were really obvious), weak & repetitive. Given that this was a movie the animation was a let down (more like TV quality animation), the blending of 2D & 3D animation was rather poor and took me away from the story since it didn't blend well enough.
After the disappointment of Amphibia I was slightly worried about The Owl House but this episode was just amazing, got massive Gravity Falls/ Star Vs The Forces of Evil vibes in one. Alex Hirsch showing more of his cool and crazy content, can't wait for more episodes and see what he does with the show.
Enjoyed Season 02 more than Season 01, interested to see what they do for a season 03. Alan Dracula easily the coolest cartoon character I've seen.
Yet another masterpiece from the amazing Satoshi Kon. I loved how the story of Chiyoko's real-life events and her actress roles constantly intertwined with each other, how the story of love and the story of being an actress bled into one another to tell two separate parts of her life in one single action. You can also really tell how much fun Satoshi Kon had with this film by making little gags out of Chiyoko's film roles and the ridiculous twists and events that typically happened in those types of films. Just a blast to watch from the start to the end, you can't go wrong with a Satoshi Kon movie!
Season 3 is just a joke. Season 2 had worse animation than Season 1 but was still animated to a competent level whereas the newest season can't even do that. The terrible animation can be blamed on the anime having been given to a new studio (Studio Deen) who then outsourced to an even lower level studio (Marvy Jack), for a reasonably well known and popular anime this is just disgusting to watch. If you are reading this I would advise you to stop watching this mess of an anime and just read the manga which has far superior art and better storytelling. As a fan of series I wish that a newer season would have been delayed and given to studio that can produce a high level of animation for the series (BONES, MAPPA, etc. or go back to A1). One of the hypest fights in the series (Meliodas vs Escanor/ The One) just looked like a piece of shit, even the fan animation on YouTube did a better job.
Luckily, I got to see this at the cinema last night (I’m in the UK). Overall the film was enjoyable and just screamed Studio Trigger in the way the movie presented itself (mostly character mannerisms). While I love seeing films that try and take on a new visual aesthetic like Promare the mix of CGI and 2D animation was something I definitely had to get used to while watching the film (wasn’t blended perfectly in my opinion). A lot of the fight scenes were very fast and at times rather hard to discern what was happening at points due to the speed, camera movement and minimalistic art style (Example: Galo vs Lio fight).
I can also see the issue regarding plagiarism for Promare because of Fire Force since the two concepts are similar (even though trigger won't admit they stole the concept for the film when Okubo shared the concept for his new manga before releasing despite some staff openly saying that they stole the concept from the original draft of Okubo’s Fire Force) but it was interesting to see how two similar concepts took different direction in terms of world-building and overall plot.
The film also suffers from the Shonen trope since the film just has a continuous powering up system throughout the film which just tries to keep one-upping itself all the time within my opinion a just over the top and rather ridiculous (but beautifully animated) conclusion to the film.
If you want to watch a rather fast-paced and heavily stylized film then I would definitely recommend it, enjoyable none the less though.

Disappointing movie. Younger Will Smith looks really unnatural for most of the film. All the fight scenes between Will Smith and his younger self look awful, the fights are really sped up (almost like someone hit x2 playback speed) and when the two Smiths interact with each other it looks outright terrible.
For anyone who watched the show before it aired on the BBC the three episodes were merged into two when they showed it hence why there are three episodes.
Why is Season 02 marked as specials with wrong air dates? We have a Season 02 now which is airing but it's not properly listed on Trakt! Someone please fix this mistake.
Want to watch a super high paced/ over the top movie then this is for you. The movie is full of fun ludicrous fights, movie references and is just pure fun to watch. Honestly a really underrated action movie in my opinion.
Before I talk about the effects (which are without doubt amazing) I really want to say what a good job they did of expanding this series world, the changes they made from the movie really created a deeper depth to the story and characters. Explaining the law of the world, the inhabitants and how all the events/ characters are connected is what really sold me on this series (something I think the movie originally lacked in my opinion). Overall I highly enjoyed and was raring to play the next episode after the previous had finished, can't wait for season 2 to come (hopefully doesn't take to long to produce).
Honestly don't waste your time watching this documentary. The documentary only really looks at anime that Netflix has produced (this documentary is basically a 58 minute ad for Netflix anime) and doesn’t really give a proper prospective of anime or Japanese culture at all, so much of this documentary feels so awkward/ cringe with over the top music or unnecessary scenes.
Honestly rather disappointing! Was hoping to find out Doctor Strange or the Wakandan princess had done something to the two infinity stones that give them the ability to undo the events but in the end they just use time travel. Felt like a cheap/ stupid solution with no backbone to it.
