Recent Films :: JAN mix

崖の上のポニョ (Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea)

There were mix reviews on this one, some disliking it because of the gap between previous Ghibli animations, or because the production was not hi-tech like previous ones. The fact is everybody is missing the point of perspective when viewing this animation. 1. The target audience is aimed at 5 year old kids. Not so universal is it. It's a waste of time to compare it to previous Ghibli classics. 2. The whole film is intentionally hand-drawn to step away from all the current CG animations. The feeling is quite unique, like reading a children's book. So just sit back and relax. Forget the comparisons and just watch the film with the target aim in mind. It was interesting trying to guess why the creators would do this, or that in various situations. And honestly the hand-drawn effects were jaw dropping at many points. Another classic I would say, just in a different perspective.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

One of the most anticipated films I wanted to watch recently. Mainly because of curiosity on how they pull off such a genius concept in 2.5 hours. And they did. Just watching Brad Pitt age backwards alone was worth the time, mainly. The story was the icing on the cake, including a unique packaging of special effects, with a elegant ribbon if I had to add. Very nicely executed. There's just one drawback for me, and I wouldn't dare mention it now for those who haven't watched the film yet. Let's just say....The origin to origin didn't really make sense. Otherwise it was a very good film, with A LOT of observation and detail put into.
