The 2017 French Presidential Election

I went to bed very late last night and I only got maybe 5 hours of sleep, but I still remembered some of my dreams but I did not voice record them before going back to sleep so now I have forgotten most of my dreams from last night except for part of the end of my last dream.

All that I can remember of the end of my last dream is that the main focus of the dream was about something that I can not remember at first, and in the background I was hearing and seeing news and conversations et cetera about the French Presidential Election 2017.


The Boy And The Beast

What is it?

The Japanese anime (animated) action adventure fantasy film The Boy And The Beast which was directed by Mamoru Hosoda.

What is it about?

This is how the IMDb describes this film:

When a young orphaned boy living on the streets of Shibuya stumbles upon a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by a gruff warrior beast looking for an apprentice.

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

The latest feature film from award-winning Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children): When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice.

Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son.

But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test-a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.

Final Thoughts

I think that this film was an alright movie with good animation, I like how they built up the relationship between the characters Ren and Kumatetsu, but I do not like how they ended the movie.

Here is Chris Stuckmann’s review of this movie:

The end,
