    "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 »

    This film wasn't what I expected at all, but it was more of a pleasant suprize than anything else. The animation, while being goregous, isn't too overdone, and the cg elements implement wonderfully. If you have not seen its predecessor, "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" definately check it out too. This story actually has a great message about family and respect, and is definatey worth the look.

    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 »
