MAY-AZAKI - The Wind Rises

We're wrapping up the merry month of May-azaki with his latest (but maybe not so greatest) movie: The Wind Rises! It's all about planes and the inventor of the legendary Zero aerocraft Jiro Horikoshi but does this movie soar above the clouds with the rest or does it fall right out of the sky right into the pits of mediocrity? Well, it's Miyazaki so you know it's not going to be bad but hey! I have to entice you to listen by raising the stakes so here are you stakes as you like them: medium rare and slightly raised! Would you like some stake sauce with that? These are good puns, Matt. Remember to use them in the show where people actually care later. You're right, Matt. I will. Have I filled in enough space yet? Eh. It's good enough for now. I'll fill in with more description if someone says something. Probably.
