A Bittersweet Traipse Through Storybooks

A beautiful and simple film wherein we get a brief intro to the Sumikko Gurashi characters and then go through a number of fairy tales with them. Some of the stories visited include: Momotaro, Little Red Riding Hood, and The Little Match Girl (without the tragic ending). The animation is rather simple with a nice pastel palette but there is some good usage of 3D CGI and some aspects of collage (one segment with lace trees is particularly striking). If you just want to watch something sweet and kind there are few better ways to fill an hour.

Vendetta is a perfect popcorn movie. Its well paced, well acted, and there's a solid mix of action and plot setting. If you were able to see ...

A sweet Christmas special that riffs off O. Henry's The Gift of The Magi. The Milky Holmes girls are at their zaniest and the feel of the episode is very comparable to the first season, where broad gag humour is the main course. The episode mostly focuses on the relationship between the detectives and phantom thieves celebrating the holidays together and of course G4 shows up and Kokoro spouts some adorable nonsense. A gift for longtime fans who want to see more of the characters they know and love but this is not an accessible starting off point for those unfamiliar with the series. ...
