Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution 1 Review
Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Film 1 has a lot going for it with us finally getting the prologue to it all: the events of "The Summer of Love". And while this segment is done very well, the rest of the film, with its lack of coherent storytelling hurts what could have been something special. It has such a magical soundtrack that tells the story better than what you see, and leaves you wishing that perhaps they could have made the prologue the entire film, or at least an OVA, and left the content from the TV series alone.

Mary and the Witch’s Flower Review
If you love Ghibli, desire more of it, or are simply willing to look past this movie's Ghibli-related beginnings, then you’ll find a charming, magical and fun family movie with beautiful animation from a studio that clearly wants to make more delightful movies in the future.

Pokemon Movie 14-16 Collection: Black & White Review
Overall Pokémon Black & White Movie Collection is a mixed bag. Older Pokémon fans like me will be left wanting for much better content and days gone by when Pokémon movies were actively good, but the younger/newer audience are more likely to get a kick out of Ash’s latest adventures.

Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Review
Overall this live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul is an enjoyable watch. It doesn’t necessarily have the same pull as the original manga or its anime adaption but for existing fans it’s interesting to see the story adapted in a different way.

Fireworks Cinema Screening Review
Fireworks is a visually stunning film with an interesting twist on the ‘Groundhog Day’ concept without going too deeply into it. A fun movie that makes another worthy addition to the UK’s most fruitful year of anime cinema releases so far.

Lu Over the Wall Theatrical Review
Lu Over the Wall is a fantastic, family-friendly, magical adventure that will capture your heart. It has something for everyone: older viewers will be enthralled by the character development and messages of using music to convey feelings, while younger viewers will fall in love with Lu and her childish antics.

Perfect Blue Review
Perfect Blue is an effective psychological thriller that brilliantly plays with expectations and directly addresses uncomfortable, heavy themes for a mind-trip of a movie. Whilst the ending may not as stellar as the work leading up to it, this is definitely a film that any anime fan should treat themselves to this Halloween.
