    My Neighbors the Yamadas

    ★★★½

    I enjoyed the art style and there were some break out magical realism scenes that were very special. I just never completely connected to the story and the humor was more to smile at then having me laugh.  The dad super hero stuff was fantastic.

    ★★★½

    Stunning visual story telling and art design. I appreciated it for a different animation style but I did not really connect to the story.  Felt like more the story you see in shorts but was extended to a feature.  It has the same problem I have with some of terrence malick‘s films: the art of itself overshadows the storytelling.

    I found this dvd as a teen and watched it alone in my cousins basement having no idea what I was getting into... it had a lasting affect on me.

    ★★★★

    Laughing more during this than any movie I’ve seen this year.  Premise is very familiar but it’s still great and unique enough that’s it’s not a straight groundhog ripoff.  It was a romantic comedy for adults and we just don’t get many of those anymore. My wife and I had a nice date watching it.
