Kimi Na Wa or Your Name

Shinkai returned to his favourite theme of longing and separation as he brought us Your Name. Your Name is a vehicle that transports us the viewers into a world of magic through scenes of nature, astral magic and Mother Nature’s disasters. These uses of bright colours, camera work and sound would put many live-action blockbusters to shame, while there is almost hallucinogenic effects in the movie’s environmental scenes will move us to tears.

Summer Wars: The Meaning of Family

Summer WarsFor the most part, I really enjoyed it. Few animated movies, much less Japanese ones, focus on families, so that aspect alone of the film is awesome.

CG was used in key areas to smooth the transition to cycling, particularly during dynamic scenes.

The Cat Returns

I was recommend this from my society, as for it being a Ghibli I thought I will give this one a watch, I did enjoyed the movie , but I did think that it was falling short in the development of the characters and the story. The baron is definitely a plus on the movie ( he is so cool). This movie’s art did, however, capture my eyes from start to finish.
