Quick Movie Review – My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro

Tatsuo Kusakabe: Trees and people used to be good friends. I saw that tree and decided to buy the house.

A movie that has the capability of being imaginative, cute, and fun when it sets out to be.  The real issue, and perhaps this is a cultural difference, is that those moments were too few and far between, and the rest of the plot was far too sparse to hold it together.



Quick Movie Review – Akira


Kaneda: He’s not your friend, he’s ours! If somebody’s gonna kill him, it should be us!

An impressive work of visual creativity with some really slick animation and an epic plot.  The movie had none of the strange pacing, out of place overreactions, or inane emotional sub-plots that usually bother me in anime.
