    Not sure why this film has so many bad reviews. I think the characters are cute, the story is good, and the way the story is told through dreams and the magical world is very entertaining. I also had fun trying to interpret what were the things or characters from the magical world in the real world. I'm not going to spoil it giving my interpretation, but I feel from some other reviews that people didn't attempt to interpret those…

    Another zombi-virus post-apocalypse movie. The movie is good, but I am just over-saturated with the genre. Luckily for me, I haven't watched The Walking Dead TV series, so my brain had some room for this one. I know the movie is already 11-years old, but I didn't have the chance to watch it before... The ending is OK, slightly above average.

    I had read some bad reviews, so I didn't have great expectations on this one. But I enjoyed this film so much that I'd put it in my list of favorite Ghibli movies. Well, even in my list of favorite anime, or just favorite films in general. The story is perhaps simple, but the way is described, and the magic of the child's imagination makes it a really special film. I would recommend it to teenage girls having a hard time, or just to remember those times and get moved with the mixture of magic and nostalgia.

    It's a bit disturbing, but not as disturbing as I imagined it to be from the trailer. The trailer is pretty disturbing, so watch the trailer first, and then the movie will be fine if you were OK with the trailer... The story is not very good, just very bizarre. However, it contains some messages that are actually quite good. Although it's obviously exaggerated to provoque, the message could be applied to anyone who feels different. I assume the intention was to be thought-provoking, and I think it delivers in that sense.
