Not much to say this week. My cousin is in town for the next week and apparently between crashing at my Dad's girlfriend's house and hanging out with me and my brothers, he much prefers us so I might have to play host for him at some point during the week. Other than that not much is going on. Which leaves me with no segue into my anime review, so the next sentence is going to flow as naturally as a brick to the frontal lobe. Mamoru Hosoda is somewhat of a rising star in the anime world. After his start as a director for one of the Digimon movies as well as a One Piece movie, Hosoda went on to become what many would consider the next Hayao Miyazaki with such hits as "The Girl Who Leap Through Time" and "Summer Wars." Now with his latest film "Wolf Children" has Hosoda cemented his place among industry legends? Well what do you think the word "Masterpiece" means?
|Nothing good happens when it rains in a movie.|
|Those Twilight wannabes got nothing on me.|
|And you thought normal children where localized disaster zones.|
Wolf Children is a treat to watch. If Mamoru Hosoda is the next Hayao Miyazaki, then "Wolf Children" is his "My Neighbor Totoro." It is a fun, charming movie from beginning to end. Though I personally prefer Summer Wars out of all of Hosoda's works I've seen, Wolf Children is an easy second. You have to watch this movie at some point in your life. Wolf Children is a Must Watch!
Until next time.
