I wouldn't be able to handle a replication of the emotional journey Dread took me on. The concept is fabulous and executed to a T. I was expecting a mediocre torture porn--what I got was a complicated exploration of what it means it be afraid. And how terrifying it is when someone decides to exploit them. And mixed into this mess is some of the better multi-dimensional characters I've seen in a horror-label film. Just, ugh, so good. I was for real crying at places.

There is more to the movie than that but know its worth watching once, so check it out.

To her shock and amazement, the cat rises onto its two hind feet and thanks her. The cat turns out to be the prince of the Kingdom of Cats, an alternate universe ruled and inhabited entirely by cats. As a sign of his gratitude, the King offers Haru his son's hand in marriage. The rest of the movie deals with how Haru initial attempts to fend off her prospective feline father-in-law's subjects and how she is brought to the Kingdom of Cats. The animation is splendid, like any other Studio Ghibli production. "The Cat Returns" also sees the return of two characters from "Whisper of the Heart", Baron the Baron Cat, and Muta, the grumpy "stray", who's fatter then ever! The movie is light-hearted and funny, though lacking the depth and grandeur of Miyazaki's films (Think "Laputa: The Castle in the Sky" and "Spirited Away"). "The Cat Returns" is an enjoyable and relaxing watch which combines fantasy and adventure. A treat for cat lovers.

Among these guests include a con artist (John Barrymore), a business man (Wallace Beery), a stenographer (Joan Crawford), and a dancer (Greta Garbo).So, this movie is one of the first films to feature an all-star cast (for its time) and is one of the first Best Picture Oscar winners. I have been meaning to watch all the Best Picture Oscar winners for some time, so, I was looking forward to seeing this movie.Let me start off with the positives. The cast is overall very good: I think everyone had at least one scene to shine in their roles that make them easy to remember when watching the film. The actor that surprised me the most was Lionel Barrymore as the dying man. I liked him as Mr. Potter in "It's a Wonderful Life", because I think he really fit the role of a grouchy man. Here, he is considerably more vulnerable because he showed more fear and anxiety in trying to live his last few days at the hotel the way he wanted to live it. I also liked John Barrymore, since his character had different sides to him as he interacted with different people, and I think he had great chemistry with all the other main characters he talked with. The dialogue may sometimes sound melodramatic (it is the 1930s, after all), but I think the actors had good delivery to make the movie more entertaining for a while.With this being a very old movie, there is bound to be pacing issues, and boy, "Grand Hotel" has them. This movie is less than two hours, but it feels longer. I was very engaged for the first hour where we see all these characters and stories mix together. But after the half-way point, I felt that the movie dragged quite a bit. I am not entirely sure what it is, but maybe the melodrama that some of the characters display felt like it was taking too long for the story to make progress."Grand Hotel" is a fine film that I would say is worth watching. Particularly for film fans who are interested in older cinema, this is a good place to visit to observe what all-star casts were like back in those days. As a Best Picture winner, I think it is alright: not great, but the performances and mix of the stories (mostly) are what stand out the most.7/10
