• 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.

  • My Life As McDull

    May 3, 2015

    Animation may still prove to be an acquired taste for some while Hong Kong animation may prove even more so, but ‘My Life As McDull’ is recommended to young and old alike.

  • My Neighbour Totoro

    May 3, 2015

    ‘My Neighbour Totoro’ is a true family classic that encompasses all of the elements of cinema that Miyazaki does so well.

  • My Neighbours The Yamadas

    May 3, 2015

    Even though it feels a bit more like a series of shorts than a movie, ‘My Neighbours The Yamadas’ is another immensely entertaining outing from the Ghibli stable.

  • Naruto The Movie 2: Legend Of The Stone Of Gelel

    May 3, 2015

    Although it’s still far from the quality we have come to expect from the manga and anime, ‘Naruto The Movie 2’ is clearly a much more fitting slice of Ninja pie to entertain fans between episodes.

  • Naruto The Movie: Ninja Clash In The Land Of Snow

    May 3, 2015

    Naruto’s first cinematic outing does just about enough to pass the time, but it remains a far cry from the quality that we have come to expect from the series.

  • Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind

    May 3, 2015

    ‘Nausicaa’ has its cake and eats it, being a pacifist’s warning about conflict and conservation while cramming in edge-of-the-seat thrills and excitement.

  • Ocean Waves

    May 5, 2015

    It may not be the type of film that international Studio Ghibli fans have come to expect, but ‘Ocean Waves’ proves that the studio is just as capable of producing a winner in every genre.

  • One Piece 3D2Y: Overcome Ace’s Death! Luffy’s Vow To His Friends

    May 7, 2015

    ‘One Piece 3D2Y’ is definitely worth a watch for fans of the show, if for no other reason than to see the blistering battles between Luffy and World.

  • One Piece Film: Z

    May 7, 2015

    ‘One Piece Film: Z’ is a really good ‘One Piece’ movie. It has some very solid animation, plenty of action and an engaging story that genuinely feels connected to the show.

  • One Piece: Baron Omatsuri And The Secret Island

    May 8, 2015

    Being an action fan it is fair to say I was very aware of the lack of it, but at the same time this is easily overlooked when you consider the quality exhibited in the story department.

  • One Piece: Chopper’s Kingdom On The Island Of Strange Animals

    May 8, 2015

    They aren’t churning out masterpieces but they are staying true to the franchise and I think that’s all any fan could ask for.

  • One Piece: Clockwork Island Adventure

    May 8, 2015

    I’d definitely say that this is another fun footnote for the ‘One Piece’ universe that will easily appease your withdrawal symptoms in-between episodes.

  • One Piece: Curse Of The Sacred Sword

    May 8, 2015

    Although this movie marks the fifth big screen outing for the ‘One Piece’ pirate crew, the series is showing no signs of weakness and continues to churn out one successful adventure film after another.

  • One Piece: Dead End Adventure

    May 8, 2015

    This particular effort is easily my favourite so far as it truly understands the heart of ‘One Piece’ and is an absolute joy to watch.

  • One Piece: Episode Of Alabasta – The Desert Princess And The Pirates

    May 8, 2015

    Existing fans will no doubt spend the majority of the movie bemoaning the loss of certain key scenes, while newcomers will be left scratching their heads throughout.

  • One Piece: Episode Of Chopper – Bloom In The Winter, Miracle Sakura

    May 9, 2015

    ‘One Piece: Episode of Chopper’ is a surprisingly respectful and entertaining reinterpretation of one of my favourite arcs.

  • One Piece: Karakuri Castle’s Mecha Giant Soldier

    May 9, 2015

    While I don’t think I could call it my favourite of the ‘One Piece’ movies, this seventh outing is yet another fine example of how to make a very entertaining side story.

  • One Piece: Straw Hat Chase

    May 25, 2015

    The new animation style makes it feel very unique and there’s a real larger-than-life approach to the whole production.

  • One Piece: Strong World

    May 9, 2015

    Despite all the talk prior to its release, the film is essentially just routine filler that, whilst definitely still fun and impressive to look at, doesn’t exactly break any new boundaries.

  • One Piece: The Movie

    May 9, 2015

    Although it barely scratches the surface in terms of the quality of the show, this is a good example of how to make an anime series into a film without giving away any of the finer details.

  • Ponyo

    May 14, 2015

    ‘Ponyo’ is yet another strong Hayao Miyazaki movie that is as uplifting and enthralling as ever.

  • Princess Mononoke

    May 15, 2015

    A fantastical story filled with a meaningful narrative and superb characters. Truly another masterpiece from the mind of Miyazaki.

  • Sky Blue

    May 27, 2015

    A visually stunning piece of sci-fi Anime, ‘Sky Blue’ is thrilling to look at but let down by a hollow core and one dimensional characters.
