Average User Score: 6.5Aug 6, 2013While at times the jokes may stray too far into tastelessness for the script’s lofty spiritual aspirations, it is, surprisingly, an endearing and entertaining movie that manages to discuss some pretty hefty themes of responsibility and wish fulfillment through a lens which is at times unique, at times brutal, at times childish, and at times truly meaningful.

Average User Score: 8.5Aug 6, 2013Summer 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.

I’m being a little hyperbolic there. But when only one out of four of the shorts bothers to try something different I cannot responsibly vouch for the total package.

Average User Score: tbdAug 6, 2013A little art house flick from visual artist Ninad Cicin-Sain, The Time Being is successful in producing a powerful emotive atmosphere while lacking a strong script and featuring some one-note acting performances that prevent it from becoming a great film.
