"I still need to see Hanging Garden and Unchain, that said I believe Blood of Rebirth belongs to Toyoda's best output to date and could be the start of something beautiful."
"Sakuran is a cool film, if only because it gives you something worth looking at for its entire running time."
"Sunshine is a superb example of how genre cinema can be elevated when the hand of an author is added to the mix, though ever so slightly."
"Instead the film leans heavily on the learning process, which goes well beyond the simple A/B testing you'd expect from a concept like this."
"Gantz:O is brutal, action-packed and a bit mad in the head."
"It's a shame it takes a little too long before the film gets really going, because Chen is obviously a very talented director."
"Slumdog Millionaire works on all levels. While it starts off as a light drama it ends as a pure feel-good film and has no trouble making it work."

"It's one of the few films that manages to have a physical effect on its audiences, something I can truly appreciate. To endure is to overcome, and once the film is finished you do feel somehow reborn."

"Goth is a strong film, elegantly transporting its audience to the universe of two unique individuals finding each other in a world that isn't really their own."
