Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of the 9-film Skywalker Saga, and after Rian Johnson’s disastrous The Last Jedi, fans were really hoping this would be the film that redeemed this new trilogy and ended it on a high note. To put it simply, it did not. Instead, the trilogy ends being the same thing it has been the whole time: a jumbled mess with no direction on where to go.
Jojo Rabbit is Taika Waititi’s latest film. After the success of Thor: Ragnarok, he has left the superhero movie space for a while (until the next Thor movie) and has given us a satirical comedy that is jam packed with both humour and more deep and meaningful subject matter. Jojo Rabbit walked a fine line that I did not expect it to walk, all the more reason why I respect this movie greatly and thoroughly enjoyed it.
When I first heard the announcement of this movie a few years back, I was intrigued. An animated Spider-Man film with the great Phil Lord and Chris Miller serving as producers and co-writers is a combination you simply cannot go wrong with. However, I did not expect a film with the level of inventiveness that this film has. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is unlike anything I have ever seen before and is easily my pick for the best film of 2018.
Welcome to Pixel Perfect! My name is Ben Daniels, the creator and host of this blog. Here, you will see reviews of films, TV shows and video games written by me. You will also see opinion pieces where I will give my thoughts regarding different aspects of the film and entertainment industry.
Those who have known me for a while may be aware that I used to run a different blog, Animated Galaxy. But now, I won’t tie myself down to only animation, though I will still discuss it a lot.
Some personal background, I am a film student and aspiring writer/director for animated films. So animation is definitely where my greatest interest lies. However, I am passionate about all forms of film, TV and gaming and am excited to discuss and review all these forms of entertainment and art.
I look forward to growing this blog and interacting and discussing with all the aficionados of the incredible art of film! Please enjoy.
