    "Summer Wars" is way too light and active with a brighter tone compared to its fellow Japanese animations, which easily loses focus on its point. However what I could tell you is that you're gonna have one hell of fun. Full Review »

    Heartwarming film. It has one awesome set of CG animation parts with a Takashi Murakami style. This movie lives up to its predecessor "The girl who leapt through time" in capturing the essence of innocence, only this time, with a masculine polarity and a solid form of respect for the elderly. Must watch for anyone who wants to see Murakami Style. More or less like Kanye West's "HOMECOMING" videoclip. Full Review »

    Summer Wars eschews the typical cyberpunk bondage gear clad anti-heroes for a cast made up of a nearly-mundane modern upper class Japanese family and their colorful avatars, it takes cyberpunk’s destitute dystopian Urban sprawls and substitutes them with a feudal era villa, it chooses to depict an optimistic story about the social network’s capability of bringing people together rather than becoming another pessimism drenched cyberpunk tale about the loss of humanity to the machine overlords.
