2016 Films - Best to Worst (58 movies items)

" An effective tearjerker. There are no big surprises here, but the film is so well-told and characters are fleshed out enough that they draw out proper emotion from me. The best parts are however some incredibly enjoyable animated sequences."

My Movie Diary 2017 (192 movies items)

" 20 January. A heart-wrenching story of a boy who summons a make-believe monster to help him cope with the impending death of his mother.

Performances are top notch by the way."
