    An easy recommendation as it’s still a fun-filled family adventure that is suitably heart-warming and easy on the eye.

  • Blood: The Last Vampire

    Feb 24, 2015

    Perhaps if the series had been completed it may have been bordering on the “classic” status, but as a standalone movie there are just far too many plot holes for it to fully succeed.

  • Blue Remains

    Feb 25, 2015

    It’s commendable that the team behind ‘Blue Remains’ opted to try something different but unfortunately the technology at the time just wasn’t up to the task.

  • CJ7: The Cartoon

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘CJ7: The Cartoon’ is a definite step down from the original, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a fun companion piece that can be enjoyed by all the family.

    If you are yet to experience the wonders of ‘Cowboy Bebop’ then this is as good a place as any to start and it’s bound to get you hooked.

  • Dead Leaves

    Mar 5, 2015

    ‘Dead Leaves’ is a fantastic injection of animated insanity that will leave your brain absolutely buzzing.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge

    Sep 25, 2017

    ‘Cooler’s Revenge’ is another entertaining if somewhat average ‘Dragon Ball Z’ movie that, much like most of the previous outings, is a film that is probably better suited to the existing fanbase.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone

    Oct 21, 2016

    While it is undoubtedly just a filler footnote in the ‘Dragon Ball Z’ universe, ‘Dead Zone’ still makes for an enjoyable watch that is likely to please fans of the franchise.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug

    Jun 27, 2017

    Long-time fans of ‘Dragon Ball Z’ who can’t get enough of those crazy Kamehamehas will likely find plenty to appreciate here.

  • Dragon Ball Z: The World’s Strongest

    Dec 31, 2016

    It’s nothing particularly new or flashy, but it is filled with enough action and comedy to leave you smiling once the final credits roll.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Tree Of Might

    Mar 28, 2017

    ‘Dragon Ball Z: Tree Of Might’ is probably the weakest of the movies up until this point, simply because it feels like a case of going through the motions.

  • DragonBlade

    Mar 9, 2015

    The film provides a really fun and family friendly take on the genre, as well as giving a knowing glance in the direction of traditional kung fu movie fans.

  • Gintama: The Movie

    Mar 17, 2015

    Although it is undoubtedly still an enjoyable arc from the show, the decision to make ‘Gintama: The Movie’ a collection of existing episodes feels somewhat disappointing.

  • Golgo 13: Queen Bee

    Mar 21, 2015

    ‘Golgo 13: Queen Bee’ is a short and not particularly sweet film that fails to make effective use of one of the coolest Japanese characters around.

  • Golgo 13: The Professional

    Mar 21, 2015

    ‘Golgo 13: The Professional’ is a truly genre-defining anime classic that is as exciting today as it was back in the 1980s.

  • Grave Of The Fireflies

    Mar 21, 2015

    This is a beautifully told story that is wonderfully presented and extremely touching, making it hugely accessible to any audience.

  • GYO: Tokyo Fish Attack

    Mar 21, 2015

    Strange, gross, manic and bonkers are all good terms to help describe ‘GYO’ but the film is also curiously gripping.

  • Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade

    Apr 1, 2015

    Don’t expect a constant, action packed thrill ride but do expect an engrossing character piece that just unfortunately lays on some of its points a little too hard.

  • Kiki’s Delivery Service

    Apr 3, 2015

    Another superbly constructed piece of cinema that really captures the imagination and warms the heart.

  • Laputa: Castle In The Sky

    Apr 5, 2015

    Despite taking a little longer to settle than other Miyazaki movies, ‘Laputa: Castle In The Sky’ emerges as one of his most magical and charming outings to date.

  • McDull, Kung Fu Kindergarten

    Apr 22, 2015

    The high standards of satire and sentimentality that had previously been attained have been sacrificed in a bid to be ’more accessible’ – a double-edged sword if ever there was one.

  • McDull, Prince De La Bun

    Apr 22, 2015

    With musings on death, love, nostalgia and responsibility, ‘McDull, Prince De La Bun’ is a mature work that provides entertainment with enough substance to appeal to every generation.

  • McDull, The Alumni

    Apr 22, 2015

    Samson Chiu can be congratulated for taking a bold step in a new direction while still retaining much of the gentle punch that is associated with the brand.

  • McDull: The Pork of Music

    May 14, 2015

    ‘Pork Of Music’ is probably the best of the series, full of beautiful moments, delicate satire and heart-warming artwork.
