Nadesico: The Motion Picture
Dir. Tatsuo Sato. Japan 1998 See
Ghost in the shell
Dir. Mamoru Oshii. Japan 1995,
Runtime 82 mins, Japanese (subtitled)
It is a darker animé tale aimed towards a more mature audience. You will
enjoy the amazing realism of this film. The attention to detail is definitely
enjoyable to see. Even being 9 years old, it still stands up for itself.
Kai Doh Maru
Dir. Kani Wakabayashi, Japan 2001,
Runtime 45mins, Japanese (subtitled)
This movie has standout moments - the white-haired demon boy is suitably creepy,
and his nonchalant slaughter is striking. Does it feel a little unfinished? Make
your mind up whether IG, who produced Blood The Last Vampire, have done it again.
Voices from a Distant Star
Dir. Makoto Shinkai, Japan 2002,
Runtime 30mins, Japanese (subtitled)
This is an amazing piece of work considering it was made by one guy in his bedroom.
The story is engaging, the artwork easy on the eye and the mecha scenes as good
as they get. A fine animé: short and sweet.
Patlabor the Movie
Dir. Mamoru Oshii, Japan 1990,
Runtime 100 mins, 35mm, English (DUBBED)
A mysterious suicide and a series of unmanned robot runaways spark off a police
investigation into suspicious software on-board thousands of industrial robots.
.. ah you know the rest.
