Post What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

I thought this subject would be appropriate.

I saw Pale Cocoon and Sky Crawlers recently, both great movies.

Pale Cocoon is only 30 min long, but feels like a 2 hour movie.

Sky Crawlers is one of those things you watch that gets you thinking about deep things, ending kinda left me disappointed though.

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

I just watched Millennium Actress directed by Satoshi Kon. It's a great Studio Madhouse film. Story is entertaining and romantic in a different way. The cast of characters is fairly small but you'll know why when you watch it. It would probably be one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, animated or otherwise.

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

Most recently I've seen Wolf's Rain, Cowboy Bebop and Lineabarrels of Iron. Also the movie Dead Leaves. I watched the entire series of Cowboy Bebop and Linebarrel, but only started the series of Wolf's Rain (though I have seen it before). And Dead Leaves is made of super fun insanity.

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

I bought Bleach: Memories of Nobody not to horribly long ago...
Kinda wish I didn't...It wasn't very good in my opinion...
1) I bought the dubbed version on accident...>.<
2) The movie felt rushed at the end...moved way too fast...and I have never made that complaint before...

It just wasn't as good as the regular anime...shoulda just got a Season @.@

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

I just recently saw Steam Boy and 5 Centimeters per Second.

Steam Boy is based on the industrial revolution in England, that follows a English boy and his adventure through the battle of steam inventions. I really enjoyed the movie and the dubbed was awesome, because of Patrick Stewart!!!

5 Centimeter per Seconds is a fanastic movie with three love stories. Great art, plots really short and jumpy, but the ending was great.

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

Last anime movie I watched was Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. Solid State Society on Encore. Yeah, randomly came across it on there. I thought it was an awesome movie. I do like the Ghost in the Shell series, of course.

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

Voices of A Distant Star/Hoshi no Koe. 30 minute debut sci-fi short film of Makoto Shinkai, the same director/animator behind 5 Centimeters Per Second, and the film The Place Promised In Our Early Days. A little quirky, subtly nerdy, and fairly cute romance that takes the term star-crossed lovers a tad out of context with literal interpretation.

When two lovers find themselves separated by a distance that takes even near-lightspeed transmission anything from weeks to months to send messages, the lag between messages grows longer and longer, until the time it takes to make contact through a text message extends to what seems like an eternity.

The sound track is simple but beautiful, and the film itself makes fantastic use of the music to accent the many elaborate scenery shots that Shinkai has become somewhat [in]famous for. His digital paintings can be absolutely breathtaking at times, and the over all tone of the film in addition to the ambient music makes for a real treat. Strangely the pacing seems remarkably slow, and despite being just a 30min long film, you may well walk away swearing it lasted a full ninety minutes.

The nerd in me also just has to point out that the concept of the film hinges around a concept pertaining to spacial relativity, as defined by the proposals of Einstein. The specific idea played upon is what's called the "Twin Paradox" -no, it has nothing to do with the paradox twins from the duelist kingdom arc of yugioh- which states, to put it simply, that if given two individuals(perhaps say, twins) one of whom you send traveling away from earth at greater-than-light speeds, the other of whom remains on earth, that should the first return to earth he will have effectively aged less than the relatively stationary twin. Replace those twins with relaying text messages traveling at those same theoretical speeds and you've got this movie's chief gimmick.

Also it has giant mecha fighting against aliens...

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

@tyto that was a bit of a novel... but I saw voices of a distant star as well. Good movie. I personally think that the director is pretty good. Though I have to say, the endings of his movies I find to be not very satisfying...

Re: What Anime Movies Have You Recently Seen?

Well, Netflix has put up an okay selection of anime lately, so I've taken the liberty to check some of them out...

Just recently watched Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C.: 2nd Gig: Individual Eleven and The Placed Promised in Our Early Days.

Of course, GitS was nothing short of stellar, reminded me why I love that series. I plan on watching the other GitS movies they have up pretty soon. The Place Promised in Our Early Days was something else, half drama half love story. It was kinda confusing and right now I'm still not sure I understood fully why everything that happened, happened, but none-the-less it was a decent film with a great musical score. ^^
