"It simply did not understand what exactly made its predecessor good." - Andrew K., Earn This.

Comments on Movie: The Power of One (1999)
"Viewers will find both the movie and the introductory short visually pretty but narratively inert." - Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews.

"What Pokémon 2000 badly needs is a screenplay to match the surrealism of its characters." - Michael Thompson, BBC Films.

"The millennial message is that one person can make a change, though that person is, as usual, Ash." -Elvis Mitchell, New York Times.

"The absence of a compelling villain translates into an absence of excitement." - Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News.

"Far from being the must-watch that fans often rate it as, I will go so far as to say this is definitely a Pokemon movie you should just skip over." - Andrew K., Earn This.

Comments on Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back (1998)
"This is a movie that knows its audience." - George Meyer, Orlando Weekly.

"It starts off pretty good, and then as Ash becomes more involved, it starts to slowly decay. Nothing against Ash, but a lot of the Pokémon movies suffer mostly for his involvement." - Hlín, The Cave of Dragonflies.

"Stuff the critics. It may not be The Greatest Story Ever Told, but we had a laugh." - Jasper Sharp, Midnight Eye.

"Surprisingly, it is still entertaining to watch due to its everlasting charm; the charm that has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world. It does have its own imperfections but it certainly is a breakthrough for the Pokémon Universe." - Rosalyn Lim.

The Movie Event That Will Blow Their Cover!
Super spy teams aren't born ... they're hatched.

Comments on Movie: Penguins of Madagascar (2014)
"You have to respect a kids’ cartoon that kicks off with a Werner Herzog joke — even one so willfully, wondrously stupid and lighthearted as Penguins of Madagascar." - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine's Vulture.

"Smart-mouth flightless waterfowl bring the funny in this animated spy adventure." - Soren Anderson, Seattle Times.

"Frenetic and frequently funny, Penguins Of Madagascar represents the DreamWorks Animation franchise style—which boils down to self-aware, but naïve, talking animals who learn kid-friendly life lessons—at its most palatable." - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club.

"Penguins of Madagascar will make you weep with its short attention span pacing, but you'll be laughing too much to care." - Christian Toto, ColoradoParent.com.

"Adorable and fun! This is a family film, not just for children, not just for spy lovers; it's intended for everyone and the whole film is actually quite amusing!" - Rosalyn Lim.

Japanese title: 劇場版 FAIRY TAIL 鳳凰の巫女 
(Gekijōban Fearī Teiru: Hōō no Miko)

Other title: 妖精的尾巴之凤凰的巫女

Comments on Movie: Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess (2012)
"It definitely doesn't disappoint." - Raymond Herrera, Anime Examiner.

"It's as accomplished and as polished as a movie spin-off from an anime series can be, putting most of the Naruto movies to shame, and up there with the first Bleach movie." - Jitendar Canth, MyReviewer.

"For fans of the Fairy Tail series, this movie will serve as an excellent place keeper until the next series gets rolling. The action is great, the characters are all here, and the ending is heartfelt." - Brandon A. DuHamel, Blu-rayDefinition.com.

"Funimation's dub doesn't fare so well this time. With Mashima directly involved, everything is brighter, funnier, more intensely felt, and yet Funimation's team delivers the same stoically, unenthusiastically professional work that dragged the TV series down." - Carl Kimlinger, AnimeNewsNetwork.

"It has a completely new story arc that has never appeared before in the manga or the anime itself, with new characters and setting or location introduced. It is truly a pleasure unlike some of the other animated features which are usually just a summary version of the anime, which is boring or a major let down." - Rosalyn Lim.

"A work of wonder equivalent to any rare treasure which Aladdin could rub out of his lamp." - Phil Hall, Film Threat.

"This historically ground-breaking animation gem should be seen by all film lovers." - FilmFanatic.org.

"It impresses for its exquisite craftmanship, balletic movement, expressive romanticism and moments of potent sensuousness and poetry." - Wally Hammond, Time Out.

"More than eighty years later...it still looks like nothing you've ever seen." - Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy.

"Exceedingly detailed and exquisite from start to end. I do not know how else I could express my respect and admiration other than highly recommending this to you." - Rosalyn Lim.

Hello to you who silently read this!

For the past weeks especially, I have been struggling to update in a regular manner because I am critically deprived of time! :'(

In addition to that, there are several matters extremely important to me which I am working on it. If everything goes well, you can expect good news from me! ><

So.. This is to inform that my updates will take a little longer than usual BUT I will not stop posting until my personal mission of exploring every animated features existed is achieved! 

Update soon~ this post is written and posted entirely using Blogger app. @-@

Other titles: Niko 2: De Flyvende Brødre, The Magic Reindeer,
Little Brother, Big Trouble: A Christmas Adventure


Comments on Movie: Niko 2: Little Brother, Big Trouble (2012)
"There are numerous high flying action set-pieces spread throughout the film's brief running time, showing off the high production values and giving children (and adults) plenty to keep them entertained ... A solid family entertainment which will keep the children occupied over the holiday season without offending the tastes of their parents." - David Brook, Blueprint: Review.

"A very well animated and well written animated movie that not only retains some of the Christmas magic of the first movie The Flight Before Christmas but deals with some pretty big issues but in a way that is easy and gentle enough for the little ones to understand as well." - Patrick Challis, Curiosity of a Social Misfit.

"Just how many family films intended for children out there that are actually adorable and touches on important life issues and taboo topics? Niko 3 please." - Rosalyn Lim.

Turn the darkness into light

Comments on Movie: The Secret of Kells (2009)
"A charming, gorgeously realized fable about the power of imagination and art to thrive even in the most hostile times." - Todd Brown, Twitch. 

"A beguiling kaleidoscopic indulgence for the eyes and soul." - Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter.

"The Secret of Kells is gorgeous work, and its imagery and themes dovetail perfectly: a story about creating art, artfully created." - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer.

"This understated Irish charmer deserves to reach a wider audience, if only to remind people that animation is a diverse medium that can be exploited in numerous ways to tell all sorts of stories." - Alistair Harkness, Scotsman.

"The world they live in isn't perfect but it is still a vibrant world. It is magical and we certainly can have a glimpse of the lives of the Kells in the eighth century." - Rosalyn Lim.

Frankenweenie (2012)

The electrifying dog is back from beyond the grave
Frankenweenie (2012) Poster

Comments on Movie: Frankenweenie (2012)
"It ranks among Burton's most personal films, encompassing familiar themes of loneliness, isolation and an insatiable need for love and acceptance." - Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger.

"The overall effect is great cinema, good fun, a visual feast for pie-eyed Burton fans and a terrifically warped reminder of just how freaky a PG film can be." - Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle.

"Even as the narrative becomes progressively more ghoulish and a Godzilla wannabe shows up, Frankenweenie never loses its heart." - James Berardinelli, ReelViews.

"This isn't one of Burton's best, but it has zealous energy." - Roger Ebert, RogerEbert.com.

"High-concept and stylish, Frankenweenie is a playlist of films and characters from Burton's movie-loving childhood." - Linda Barnard, Toronto Star.

"This film is bittersweet in its own ways. And I like that. Though cannot be compared to Tim Burton's live action films as they are essentially different types of movie, it is just as dark, gothic and artistic as his other films; perhaps just much more personal." - Rosalyn Lim.

Monster House (2006)

There Goes The Neighborhood.
Monster House (2006) Poster

Comments on Movie: Monster House (2006)
"Monster House becomes one of those wonderfully weird adventure stories beloved of children who don't mind getting a good old-fashioned case of the heebie-jeebies. It's kind of a blast for adults too." - Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly.

"It's very weird and twisted in some of the areas it goes. But it's also just a ton of fun." - Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper.

"I suspect, and hope that Monster House will become a Halloween classic, because it's too fun to be forgotten." - Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed.

"What initially appears to be a straightforward haunted house tale morphs into a haunting tale about love, retribution and acceptance." - Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing.

"It was too interesting to miss and I turned into a couch potato." - Rosalyn Lim.

As Halloween Draws Near

Hello everyone, how are you? I sincerely hope everyone's well and here's a short update for this film blog! I know I have been a little slow on update; I have been occupied with my real life pursuits and I am also posting on Moviepilot as well so my apologies for those who are waiting for my updates. ;(

Other titles: El Libro de la Vida

Comments on Movie: The Book of Life (2014)
"You do not have to have a college degree in Mexican folklore to appreciate the story and characters. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride through the three realms." - Craig Kandiko, FatMovieGuy.com.

"A visual feast in every frame. The movie champions honoring the memories of those we have lost while also advocating that the living must craft their lives to follow their own design and not the desire of others." - Alonso Duralde, TheWarp.

"Beautifully animated, lovingly hilarious and super adorable! Aside from being artistically enchanting, it is also everlasting as it filled with plenty of invaluable life lessons!" - Rosalyn Lim.

Nak (2008)

Nak (2008) Poster
Thai title: นาค

Comments on Movie: Nak (2008)
"A CGI kiddie-horror movie from the guys who made Ong Bak? Does this mean there is no story, just a lot of cool fights? Thankfully, no. Warring ghosts or not, Nak has a lot more heart in it than you would expect." - Ard Vijn, Twitch Film.

"Nak is not only enjoyable and entertaining as a film. It also depicts an old legend and introduces several figures and characters that are characteristic of the ghost and spirit stories from this part of Asia." - International Film Festival Rotterdam.

"Seriously, the world should watch this. Nak (2008) is one of the nicest supernatural fantasy films intended for children or family. With unique visuals that looks like in game animations and plenty of precious characters based on folklore, it is truly an amazing animated feature originated from the amazing Thailand." - Rosalyn Lim.

The Life of Buddha (2007)

The Life of Buddha (2007) Poster
Thai title: ประวัติพระพุทธเจ้า

Comments on Movie: The Life of Buddha (2007)
"The Buddha is a colourful lesson on the genesis of Buddhism that appeals mainly to children. This, of course, is nothing to be ashamed of. Wallapa is well-meaning beyond question. But that also means that The Buddha mirrors the national climate of institutional worship and the indifference, if not the ignorance, to how modern society has twisted Lord Buddha's teachings into something much less pure than their original meanings." - Kong Rithdee, Bangkok Post.

"The saddening question is this: will there ever be an interest in the historical material that the Pali suttas hold?" - Eisel Mazard, Prachatai.

"It got everything wrapped up in a nutshell as a quick jumpstart introduction into the life of Buddha and his teachings, packaged in animation done by Thailand with inputs and vetting by the necessary subject matter experts so you can be assured of some quality control in terms of storytelling." - Stefan Shih, A Nutshell Review.

"The animations are beautiful and can't really tell whether the script or lines are too far from being historically accurate due to improficiency of Thai language but then again, how many adaptations of any kind out there are 100% accurate?" - Rosalyn Lim.

Khan Kluay (2006)

Khan Kluay (2006) Poster
A little elephant on a big adventure!

Thai title: ก้านกล้วย

Comments on Movie: Khan Kluay (2006)
"With adorable characters, funny sequences, and visually impressive animations, Khan Kluay captivates the children, satisfies the adults, and stands as a wonderfully delightful film for the whole family." - Sorradithep Supachanya, thaicinema.org.

"You can tell the animators spent many hours studying the movement of elephants" - Wise Kwai, Thai Film Journal.

"Very lovely and inspiring; eye-opener to Thai culture and warring-era. There are several themes that can be too serious for children; nonetheless vital to acknowledge and survive in our world." - Rosalyn Lim.

Anohana the Movie: The Flower We Saw That Day (2013)

Japanese title: 劇場版あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない
(Gekijouban Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai)

Comments on Movie: Anohana the Movie: The Flower We Saw That Day (2013)
"An unusually melancholic exercise in grief, regret and the vagaries of memory, an anime that didn't have a traditional plot arc but which tended to derive much of its dramatic and emotional momentum out of the interior worlds of its characters." - Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com.

"If you are a fan of Anohana, there is definitely enough that is new here to make it worth a watch. Just don't expect a coherent, well-paced film." - Richard Eisenbeis, Kotaku

"Certainly a tear inducing anime about love and friendship and it is also probably the most beautiful hide and seek story we'll ever come across." - Rosalyn Lim.
