    Distance Between Dreams

    ★★½

    Unfortunately this isn't really the quality I've come to expect from RedBull Media House. As much as I can kind of see why it was included, the foray into Ian taking part in competitions is badly edited, and the soundtrack at, and around, this point doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the film. It's mostly worth the hour you spend watching it. But when compared to films like Chasing Niagara, Passengers, and particularly the Art of Flight (in quality order from low to high), it just doesn't match up.

    Utterly brilliant. Don't think I've ever finished a film feeling such a plethora of emotions.

    ★½

    Please, for every deity that people pray to, let this end the franchise. I loved the cartoons when I was a kid, but these films are just awful. They're too long to keep the attention of kids that just might be interested, and don't have the remotest of story lines for anyone to actually watch. I think half of the budget must have gone on paying some of the big names to be in it. Unfortunately, as has been proved…

    I don't think this is necessarily a bad film. It's visually stunning, and well acted. I also liked all the nods and references to the original. Unfortunately after having seen the original anime fairly recently it just isn't quite the thought provoker, the original is.
