Genius Party & Genius Party Beyond Review

Genius Party & Genius Party Beyond Review
The two Genius Party films are short story anthologies full of new short animations created and/or directed by some of the best and well regarded directors and visionaries in Japan. These shorts range from grand spectacle to the relatable and human to the completely bizarre.

Ronja the Robber’s Daughter Review
Ronja the Robber’s Daughter is not the brightest spark in Studio Ghibli's repertoire. Despite some good ideas and lovely animation, this is primarily aimed at very young kids and therefore anyone outside that demographic would most likely find this 26-episode venture hard to get through.

Neo Parasyte f  Review

Anyway, Movie Collection 2 contains the third and fourth movies released under the Dragon Ball Z label, “The Tree of Might” and “Lord Slug”, or the one with evil Goku and the one with evil Piccolo, if you wish…
