Just got my ticket to see The Wind Rises at the New York Film Festival in a couple weeks. I can't wait, especially now that it's apparently Miyazaki's final film.

I saw the World's End last night. It was hilarious, but the ending was shit.
I dunno, I was iffy about it the first time I watched it, but I saw it yesterday for the second time (as all the Cornetto movies require, I think) and it made a lot more sense to me. Besides, the name of each bar refers to the things that happen there. What else was supposed to happen at The World's End?
Overall, though, I just found myself really impressed with the movie the second time around, not necessarily just by the quality of the jokes (pound for pound Hot Fuzz is still probably the most laugh-out-loud funny of the trilogy), but actually as a movie. Wright's directing, Wright and Pegg's writing, and especially Pegg and Frost's acting have come such a long way and have become so much more nuanced and sophisticated since Spaced, it's incredible. I can't wait to see what they do next together.
