Finished my review for 5 Centimeters per Second. This marks my 40th review on MAL, and I’m just about to edge into the top 10 of the Most Helpful list. A silly and self-important goal, I guess, but everyone likes to feel relevant now and again, right?
I’m not really happy with how I reviewed this movie though. It’s hard to convey mixed feelings when numbers are so impartial. I might just need to watch this movie again and revise the review after that, I dunno. (I overthink these things, I’m sure of it.) I’ve lost a lot of friends since everyone parted ways for college (what is a Facebook friend, really?), so maybe that’s why I had such a snarky attitude towards some parts of this film. The characters made it seem too unrealistic, which is a damn shame because the topic is so relevant. It’s ironic that in today’s super-connected society, people are as isolated as ever.
Nostalgia is a terrible thing sometimes.
