The Garden of Sinners Movie Collection Review
Overall, The Garden of Sinners is a mixed bag. The films are interesting but the quality varies a lot and they’re not for everyone. If you’re a particular fan of Ufotable then they’re well worth watching for the animation, but that won’t overcome their shortcomings for everyone.

Promare Theatrical Review

Promare Theatrical Review
Promare is a film not to be missed. There is nothing quite like it out there, certainly nothing which is so much fun for the entire runtime. Hiroyuki Imaishi and Kazuki Nakashima have once again created something truly unforgettable which will be a joy to watch for many years to come.

Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade Review
Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade presents a story of loss and sacrifice with a simple yet moving premise presented effectively thanks to the winning combination of Mamoru Oshii’s writing and Hiroyuki Okiura’s directing.

Okko’s Inn Review

Okko’s Inn Review
Okko’s Inn is an entertaining and often poignant film that deals with its themes maturely but also with a warmth that makes it accessible for a younger audience but deep enough for older viewers to appreciate too. Director Kitarô Kôsaka shows some promise and I look forward to their future works.

Kizumonogatari Part 3: Reiketsu Review
Kizumonogatari Part 3: Reiketsu brings this prequel story to a close wonderfully. With dramatic action, heartfelt discussions, and good old Monogatari humour, there is plenty to enjoy here. Both newcomers and longtime fans will want to own this trilogy in their collections!

Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu Review
Kizumonogatari is off to a slow but entertaining start. Having read the novel, I’m looking forward to what comes next in the films. However, even newcomers to Kizumonogatari’s story will be hooked from this intriguing beginning.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly Review

Dragon Ball Super: Broly Review
Dragon Ball Super: Broly is a thrilling action film, pitting Goku and Vegata against the hulking Broly with some great animation work and a solid backstory that eases in newcomers to the franchise. For all its outrageous action that fans will love, those coming into this fresh will find the elongated fight scenes go on for far too long, perhaps resulting in them switching off in its final moments.

Ring: 20th Anniversary Screening Review
Luckily, the outdated technology of VCRs and square TVs are not the most horrific scare of this movie; Ring is the epitome of slow-burn horror with its 20th anniversary screening being a delightful reminder of why it was such a big hit back then.

My Hero Academia – Two Heroes Review
My Hero Academia does Die Hard as it makes its theatrical debut with “Two Heroes”, a story that also explores the past of one of the series’ lead characters: All Might. Does this blend of genres work while living up to the great TV series? In a word: Yes!

Fireworks Review

Fireworks Review
Fireworks is an enjoyable but flawed film that tries to pair a slice of science fiction with a teenage romantic drama, but ends up getting bogged down with its time-altering plot device.

K: Missing Kings Review
K: Missing Kings looks gorgeous but is not the best place for newcomers to the K-Project to start. So - is it a satisfying watch for fans of the original series?
