Movie Review: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time



The power to travel through time… It can be used for the good of humanity, or just selfishly abused. While many may fantasize about obtaining such a power, it has become nothing less than reality for otherwise-normal schoolgirl Konno Makoto.

After a fated event, her life takes a turn for the extraordinary. Though she initially uses her power to literally “leap” into the past and change little things in order to make her life easier, she soon has to face the fact that changing the past can have drastic consequences. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

General Information:

Directed by: Mamoru Hosoda
Studio: Madhouse
Genres: Adventure, Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi
Rating: PG-13 – Teens 13 or older
Release Date: Jul 15, 2006
Duration: 1 hr. 37 min.



So I heard and read a lot about this movie before I watched it. I was also meaning to watch it for quite a while. I didn’t get a chance to until few months ago. So yes this review is very delayed.
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time I must say that the title itself is quite intriguing. The movie wasn’t what I had in mind. For some reason I thought she would travel to a different life time. Though the time leaps were a mater of days or hours. Though the way the story was presented was quite interesting, and I specially loved the twist near the ending of the movie. I also liked the fact that the character developed after the events that happened throughout the movie. It was pretty interesting to watch. Also, the amount of drama, comedy, thriller factors were just right. I never got bored and everything I discovered was always interesting. The movie was perfect specially the ending it left me speechless. If you haven’t watched it yet… I say it’s a must watch!!

Overall Rate: 10/10

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby



“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

General Information:

Directed by: Baz Luhrmann
Based on: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre: Drama, Romance
Release date: May 10, 2013
Running time: 143 minutes
Country: United States, Australia
Language: English


I like this style of movies. They are so interesting no matter what kind of story it is. As the movie started I wasn’t found of the fact that Tobey Maguire is the story teller. Though I got used to it later on. The director was amazing I loved every scene in the movie. It was such a beautiful movie. Amazing story! I love the way the story unravels. I was also surprised to see Amitabh Bachchan in the movie. I’m so in love with the camera work and directing of this movie that I would see it again anytime! I totally recommend it. It’s a beautiful movie!!

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6



Hobbs has Dom and Brian reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries. Payment? Full pardons for them all. (Source: IMDB)

General Information:

Directed by: Justin Lin

Genre: Action, Thriller, Crime
Release date(s): May 7, 2013 (London premiere), May 24, 2013 (International)
Running time: 130 minutes
Country: United States

After watching Fast 5 I was incredibly excited for Furious 6. Though the movie was a bit disappointing. I expected there to be more car racing, but there was more car chasing. Also, there was a lot of exaggerative action… Which I didn’t like. Not to mention I watched this movie in Cinescape kuwait, which means there was a lot of censoring. It made the movie kinda difficult to understand. If your a Fast & Furious fan check it out. If not don’t bother!

I totally love the fact the the movie had a lot of action, I mean the fights were from the beginning till the end… Nonstop. I also liked the fact that Ichi had a big role in the movie. Also Masamune was as amazing as ever. There was nothing wrong with the movie it was almost perfect. Though I really wanted to see the other lords but they weren’t there. Still the movie is totally worth it!

Movie Review: Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki



The theme of the film is the love between parents and children. The story covers 13 years and begins with a 19-year-old college student named Hana who encounters and falls in “fairy tale-like” love with a “wolf man.” After marrying the wolf man, Hana gives birth and raises two wolf children—an older sister named Yuki who was born on a snowy day, and a younger brother named Ame who was born on a rainy day. The four quietly lived in a corner of a city to conceal the existence of the “wolf children,” but when the wolf man suddenly dies, Hana decides to move to a rural town far removed from the city.

General Information:

Directed by: Mamoru Hosoda
Screenplay by: Mamoru Hosoda, Satoko Okudera
Story by: Mamoru Hosoda
Studio: Studio Chizu, Madhouse
Release Date: Jun 21, 2012
Country: Japan
Genres: Fantasy, Slice of Life
Duration: 1 hr. 57 min.
Rating: G – All Ages



Ookami Kodomo has a heartwarming story. As you can see from the genre it’s Slice of Life, which means that the movie is about life. I love how the story built up. I was told that the movie was dull, but it was exciting. There wasn’t much action there, yet it’s very interesting. I love the animation. The movie is directed by Mamoru Hosoda, who’ve directed the amazing movie Summer wars. If you’ve watched Summer wars, you’ll know how awesome his directing is! Therefore, I strongly recommend this movie. It’s a family movie, with a great story that’s filled with life lessons.

Overall Rate: 9/10

Movie Review: Fairy Tail: Houou no Miko



The film revolves around a mysterious girl named Éclair who appears before Fairy Tail, the world’s most notorious wizard’s guild. She lost all of her memories, except for the imperative that she must deliver two Phoenix Stones somewhere. The stones may spell the collapse of the magical world, and Natsu, Lucy, and the rest of the Fairy Tail guild are caught up in the intrigue. (Source: ANN)

General Information:

Alternative Title: Fairy Tail: Priestess of the Phoenix
Director: Masaya Fujimori
Script: Masashi Sogo
Studio: A-1 Pictures
Distribution: Shochiku Co., Ltd.
Release Date: Aug 18, 2012
Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, Shounen
Duration: 1 hr. 26 min.
Rating: PG-13 – Teens 13 or older



I’m sure most of you knows Fairy Tail from either the manga or anime. However, some of you might not be familiar with Fairy tail. So, I’ll try to write two reviews for people that doesn’t know Fairy tail. I’m a Fairy tail fan this is why I had to watch the movie.

First Time Viewer Review:

The movie is about magicians that encounter a girl and try to help her remember who she is and help save the world. The story is heartwarming and funny at the same time. I didn’t anticipate such ending, it was interesting. There were some things there that you would never expect, totally ironic. The action is amazing, the characters are pretty strong. It’s totally shounen and a nice movie to watch.


Fan Review:

As I mentioned earlier, I’m a Fairy Tail fan so I had to watch the movie. I didn’t expect much from the movie but what am I about to write is a Spoiler so if your not up to date with the manga or anime stop reading. ;p
Apparently the movie takes place after the episode where Lucy finds out that her father died. If you’ve read the manga or seen the anime you’ll know that at that time fairy tail members were weak and they’d lost their original guild place. While in this movie they were in their original guild place and they were pretty strong… Which puzzled me. So for me the movie was just all over the place. On a different note Master Makarov keeps saying the “strongest members” and these members come up Natsu, Erza, Juvia, Wendy, Gray, and Lucy. As you can see there is only one S class magi in the mix… How is that the “Strongest Fairy Tail team”. Anyways, the movie was funny. The action was just the right amount and there was too much drama. I didn’t anticipate such ending nonetheless it was a nice movie to watch.

Overall Rate: 7/10
