    Big Hero 6

    ★½

    So white washed and sterile that it makes the "culture clash" of San Francisco and Tokyo completely superficial. Its vapid tackling of familial loss is made all the more frustrating due to its blank cast of rote characters. Then a big superhero battle, ripped straight out of Marvel's already dull recent output, happens. Don't bother.

    Tamako Love Story

    ★★★★½

    A satisfying romance elevated to the stratosphere mainly due to Naoko Yamada's exquisite visual direction. So effortlessly confident at striking a mood that a summer haze drenches every frame well before you take in the gorgeous backdrops.
