Tatsumi (2011)

Tatsumi (2011)

Comments on Movie: Tatsumi (2011)
"If this film helps the casual viewer to pick up any of Tatsumi's books, and from there turn some into fans, then this film homage would have successfully done its job." - Stefan Shih, A Nutshell Review.

"Tatsumi is a visual treat and an engrossing experience overall." - Kirk Haviland,

"A wonderful tribute." - MaryAnn Johanson,

"The film leaves any audience member who, like myself, had previously known nothing of Yoshihiro Tatsumi wanting to discover more." - John McKnight, Permanent Plastic Helmet.

"Undeniably a great tribute and the best from Singapore." - Rosalyn Lim.

War of the Worlds: Goliath (2012)

Comments on Movie: War of the Worlds: Goliath (2012)
"That limited scope in animation resources really hurts when the story is about a planetary invasion. Presumably to keep costs low and to simplify animators’ workload, some scenes are conspicuously underdeveloped." - Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt.

"A bit muddled. Video is somewhat inconsistent; but given the manner in which it combines multiple types and styles of animation, that's probably not a big surprise." - Jim Thomas, DVD Verdict.

"There are a couple of sub-plots throughout the movie that are meant to serve as story exposition but honestly, they are a waste of time and end up going nowhere." - James McDonald, Red Carpet Crash.

"The battles and explosions depicted here are not so engaging as to make up for the lifeless human element." - Glenn Kenny,

"Visually pretty but storytelling wise, it is absolutely boring." - Rosalyn Lim.

Comments on Movie: Geng: The Adventure Begins (2009)
"The film never really gets boring (but) the animation quality leaves a lot to be desired." - Mrigank Dhaniwala,

"This one does feel inferior when compared to some of the older Malaysian animated feature in some aspects." - Rosalyn Lim.

RPG Metanoia (2010)

RPG Metanoia (2010) Poster

Comments on Movie: RPG Metanoia (2010)
"Roughly four to five years in the making, the film was surprisingly good, and showed at the 2010 Manila film festival. Any Pinoy fan of animation should definitely give it a watch." - TV Tropes.

"The film never set out to capture a mass audience, never tried to cater to the whims of the abstract many. But it deserves everybody's attention." - Philbert Ortiz Dy, ClickTheCity.

"RPG Metanoia's greatest asset is that it satisfies itself with telling its story with refreshing simplicity." - Oggs Cruz, Lessons From the School of Inattention.

"It is made out of praiseworthy intentions and it tackles present time life issues in an imaginative way." - Rosalyn Lim
