Yellow Submarine, big shock.

Even though the 2012 restoration looks great overall, I'll have to say that things look pretty odd as well, as if they edited the movie digitally despite claiming that it was handmade. Being a movie which animation relies heavily on panning, it looks like those were recorded with a much higher framerate than the ones animated traditionally and sometimes it looks jarring. That, and the sound mixing is odd on certain occasions. Perhaps it has to do with the TV set I used to watch the film, so I'll see if I get similar results on my desktop PC. Still, the whole thing looks sharp and more colorful than my VHS copy of the film, and that makes me happy. I'll have to be picky on this part, but I kind of wish this restoration also had the original U.S. release with the Hey Bulldog scene excluded, you know, just for an added extra, but I won't complain, since I can still find that version on the Internet, with the old United Artists logo and everything, something that I also wish they retained in this rerelease but alas, copyright infringements.

Rogue One - everything nice that has ever been said about this movie, I share those sentiments.

Moana - Infinitely better than Frozen, I'll gladly take Maui's tattoo over Sven any day. Also, dem visuals

Star Trek Infinity - I'm not a big Trekkie (my grandmother is though) but I thought it was fun

La La Land

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought it was the Oscar bait-iest thing I had ever seen, and to an extent that partially rings true now that I've watched it. Despite that, I can easily see it going down as one of the most charming, feel good movies of the decade, and I will definitely be seeing it again.

I think the story arc of Ryan Gosling's character trying to open his own jazz club and his deep passion for "traditional" jazz in general was the perfect analogy for the movie itself. La La Land is an unabashed homage to the Technicolor movie musical of yesteryear - a genre that you don't see much of anymore - and that quality truly makes it stand out on its own, especially in a box office climate full of mindless action movies, umpteenth sequels, and superhero movies. It probably won't bring back of resurgence of movies in the same genre despite its financial and critical success, but it took a risk, stuck to its roots, and will be looked back and revered because of it.

(Also Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are super cute together so yeah)

Manchester by the Sea

Great film. It's somehow both funnier and sadder than I was expecting. I laughed a lot, cried a little, felt uncomfortable...it's an emotional rollercoaster, that's for sure. I'm glad I saw this first instead of La La Land.

That's Entertainment!

Still a great time capsule on some of the greatest musical moments in Metro Goldwyn Mayer's history, from The Wizard of Oz to Gigi. I'll be watching Part II and Part III within the week, as well as That's Dancing.

EDIT 1/4/2017

That's Dancing

Told ya I would be watching this...

That's Entertainment! Part II

...and this one as well. Both are also great time capsules of great moments in musical and non-musical cinema.

Moana was pretty good. Lots of good songs, amazing animation (3D and 2D!). I only had a couple minor grievances with the movie.

I also got to see Princess Mononoke (well, the last half of it. picking up my friend and driving through highway traffic jams took up more time than I thought it would) in a theater last night. It was subtitled, which I wasn't expecting, but also wasn't a big deal. Good movie and it was also great to see a Miyazaki film in theaters, up on a big screen with surround sound, all that good stuff.

I saw some definitely good new movies last year, including Zootopia, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Arrival, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and tbh I found Suicide Squad pretty entertaining too.

Most of these I happened to see with people; Kubo and the Two Strings was one of my most anticipated movies of the year but I couldn't find anyone who wanted to see it with me so it got away from me, and it's becoming the same with Moana though there's still a chance.  I want to see the anime movie your name. [sic] but little to no way that's happening where I live.  And on what kingplatypus said the Princess Mononoke showings are happening where I live, I had work last night but there's a showing of the dub on Monday night which there's a chance I have off, so that'd be nice.

That's Entertainment! III

This one is more technical and informative about the making of the MGM musical than the other two, and was released 18 years after the second one. It even shows deleted footage from certain films, including Judy Garland's bits for Annie Get Your Gun (1950) before she was replaced with Betty Hutton after a breakdown. Nevertheless, the film serves as a long-awaited conclusion to a trilogy of movie time capsules.

...and with that, I'm all done with the That's ________! movies

Following (1998)

I sense the code of Inception here and there. Nevertheless, simply Christopher Nolan's truly underrated masterpiece.

Questions by the way (SPOILER)

Spoiler

Was Cobb really dead? If Cobb wasn't, then who's the one got hammered by Bill (D. Lloyd)? Where did he get those money from?

Manchester by the Sea

Went to the movie with an open mind as usual and, while there were a lot of funny scenes and some sad ones, although sappy, I don't know, maybe the whole depressing aspect of the film lead me with a bit of disappointment. I mean, the movie is great, don't get me wrong, they make use of the subject flawlessly and such, a million times better than Colateral Beauty I suppose, but probably I could've had a better time watching Bleed for This or Rogue One, which I didn't picked up due to lack of interest. But either way, if your heart can handle depressing, realistic stories, then go for it, it's worth a watch.

Spoiler

Casey Affleck's house burning down, though, that scene caught me off-guard.

Not as good as The Force Awakens, but it was still a fantastic film. Definitely the best Star Wars prequel ever existed, obviously.

Rambo First Blood

The only thing that marred the experience was that it was the edited-for-TV version. I didn't mind the censorship but I hated that they inserted commercial breaks in between lines of dialogue. Most networks at least have the decency to wait until a scene ends before cutting to commercial.
