updated their review of Summer Wars
Score 6/10

I'm surprised that Summer Wars is so well-received. While enjoyable to watch, the whole movie has such an artificial, romantic-comedy-esque, "we can do it" spirit. I think I might have actually thrown up not ten minutes into it, but I'll try to break down what there is to like about...

updated their review of Redline
Score 6.5/10

Redline is an anything-goes race and, by god, anything f*cking goes in this movie. There are aliens, wormholes, space cannons, magic, and absurd cars. Story?  Redline has no time for stories. The characters' pasts are mentioned a bit, but I forgot once the bio-weapon activated and that...

Story Gungrave is about two friends, Harry and Brandon, who begin pulling off small jobs and eventually become bona-fide mafia members. It opens in medias res , starting off in the middle of the plot, and then jumping back to start at the beginning. Gungrave then paints us a picture...

Score 9/10

Monster is an incredible series. It weighs in at a long 74 episodes told at a slow and steady pace, with an extreme devotion to its characters and its story.  Monster is the only anime of its length (that I've seen) that maintains a consistent quality for the duration of the series. There...

updated their review of Expelled From Paradise
Score 5/10

Animation The movie is totally computer animated. There are sharp character designs that seem to have a limited number of moving parts. This means any single frame looks great out of context but you'll notice some awkward, robot-ish motion throughout the movie. Angela's hair floats about...

Expelled From Paradise

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Ghost in the Shell

Expelled from Paradise is the poor man's version of Ghost in the Shell. They both feature cyberization of the human mind with a female security team member as the lead character (pretty similar, eh?). Expelled from Paradise makes a shallow effort at exploring what "humanity" means in this context, while GITS answers this question with its iconic style and with all of the maturity and sophistication that EFP lacks.
