WXIII: Patlabor the Movie 3
"The animation is strong, the art style detailed, the soundtrack a real treat. And how often do you get to see mechs battle it out against a giant monster in a future-realistic setting?"
Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl
"Vampire Girl Vs Frankenstein Girl is entertainment to the max. There is no time for dull moments or dramatic depth, just heaps of blood, gore and silliness."
Whisper of the Heart
"Kondo's first film is a perfect match for the Ghibli brand."
"The stellar lead performance by Tadanobu Asano, the crisp styling, and the balance of delicate drama with some rougher edges turn this into a quality film.~"
"The film looks beautiful, the core drama is intriguing, ambiguous and heightened by minor fantastical elements and the payoff is more than satisfying."
"Nolan never managed to allocate the extra budget for his following films in any meaningful way."
"A pleasantly executed film featuring a strong lead and some good solid drama, splendid scenery and just breaths the couleur locale."
One Take Only
"In the end, Som and Bank is another very solid entry in the oeuvre of Oxide Pang and will have a hard time failing fans of the original Bangkok Dangerous."
The Secret World of Arrietty
"Ghibli fans will know what to expect when they go and see this film."
The Legend of Chen Zhen
"Great production values, some slick action scenes and a nice cast turn this film into an enjoyable little blockbuster, which can be refreshing in itself from time to time."
"I found La Meute to be a very pleasant surprise, but I encountered plenty of disappointed reactions elsewhere."
The Insects Unlisted in the Encyclopedia
"Miki has a very peculiar sense of humor. The jokes can be pretty absurd and out there, but the delivery is always deadpan."
"Quality across the board with touches of originality sprinkled left and right, in order to keep things interesting. It's a pleasant, easy and slightly challenging watch that leaves you wanting more."
La Boîte Noire
"The Black Box is a film for loving genre fans."
"Regardless of its diminishing appeal, Aliens is still a film I love revisiting (though the next time I might just ditch the Director's Cut)."
Afro Samurai: Resurrection
"If you're up for some good solid fun and don't have too much trouble neglecting the grating dub and soundtrack, there is plenty of amusement to be had from this film."
Being John Malkovich
"High concept, highly original, and impossible to reproduce, and Jonze has a proper handle on his film at all times, even when things get pretty hectic and confusing."
"A slice of tactical warfare that, at least to me, is a lot more challenging and interesting to follow. The climax is both exciting and emotional, the ending is smart and a small punch in the gut."
August in the Water
"Probably one of his most accessible films, though there is still plenty of wonder and authorship to be admired."
"The package is stylish, quirky and fun at the same time. In the end I prefer To's more arthouse-oriented work, but a film like this is a welcome diversion, especially when executed so wonderfully."
Drunken Master II
"The pairing of Liu and Chan results in some of the coolest and frantic martial arts moments ever put on film, making it that much easier to forget about all the film's shortcomings."
Jam Films S
"Japan's animation anthologies tend to bring together the best in the genre while their live-action counterparts are more concerned with finding new talent."
"Sauna is an impressive experience, solid in just about every department. Extremely strong lead, nice and fitting visuals, great soundtrack and intriguing storyline."
The Detective 2
"The Detective 2 is a very solid sequel, somewhat different in tone and execution as the first film, but that's not really a bad thing."
Once Upon a Time in Shanghai
"Between the stunning cinematography, the impressive fight scenes and the fast-paced plot it's hard not to like at least some part of Once Upon a Time in Shanghai."
