    I recently watched the movie version for a film course discussing racism in hollywood; I definitely need to read the novel again.

    I’ve always wanted to read this, but I just haven’t made the plunge yet (probably because I normally don’t like science fiction).

    I generally do not enjoy 3D films; however, Life of Pi was an absolute joy.

    This was a very interesting essay. The idea of “change” certainly does appear throughout the film; Chihiro’s own metamorphic transformation and changing characterization certainly does allow her to accept other changing aspects of life, as opposed to her original personality at the beginning of the film.

    Death Proof is by no means Tarantino’s best movie, but it still has a great plot and, like you said, is enjoyable.

    Death Note will always be one of my favorite shows. I’ve yet to encounter another anime like it.

    I’ve always been a huge fan of the tournaments within fighting animes, so I have to say I disagree with you. The tournaments are good plot devices that showcase a lot of characters, especially those who cannot normally be seen fighting, such as Tenten or the Sound Team in the Chunin Exams.

    I was once completely obsessed with this series; I read all three books over the course of a week a few years ago. The first film was also very good, but I began to lose interest as time went on, and I haven’t seen Catching Fire or Mockingjay. I like your mentioning of the conflict of splitting the film into two parts, as it was one of the main criticisms I had seen that people had when discussing the film.
