Pokémon: The First Movie (2.06.11)
Yes i know its juvenile and outdated, but that's why i love it. Once i got past the overwhelmingly face-meltingy nostalgia, i could actually concentrate on trying to criticize the film. This was surprisingly difficult. I couldn't criticize the voice acting, because it was brilliant, I couldn't criticize the story, because it was astoundingly absorbing. I couldn't even criticize the animation, because it looked fantastic. Perhaps even, super effective. *bad pun grin*
I miss being part of the demographic this was made for. Those few years were so much better than now. But for an hour and a half, i got to relive those precious years.
Rating: 9.5/10 (still a little nostalgia blinded)
