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.

Love and Lies Review
Love and Lies could have provided an interesting social commentary with its core concept of government arranged marriage, but instead presents us with a haremesque romantic drama with strange execution that pulls its best punches when it’s not actually focusing on the romance.

Tokyo Godfathers Review
Tokyo Godfathers captures the true spirit of Christmas by presenting a tale of three homeless folk finding hope and redemption amidst a madcap adventure, yet retains the darker themes that director Satoshi Kon is known for, allowing this to appeal to both fans and newcomers to his work.

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