Mirai is a magical family-focused movie that feels like a modern, Japanese "Coco" but with much less stress and more appreciation for simple things.
A beautifully animated coming of age vignette piece with a professional polish, but not very memorable at the end of the day.
While definitely a movie designed for children, there's a good amount of solid love that doesn't make it feel patronizing or pandering. A very cute, sweet, and emotional movie for all ages.
A gorgeous and fresh experience with masterfully crafted music and visuals and strong emotional elements.
I can't remember the last time I literally felt my heart flutter in pure joy at the beauty of something. It feels like it's Christmas morning and you're eight years old again.
If you grew up learning any instrument, or even just surrounded by music, specifically classical, this will be a great piece for you. Deeply emotional and poetic, prepare for the cries (and for some distracting tropes).
A very solid coming of age and slice of life piece with endearing characters and some surprisingly down to earth moments. Warm Fuzzies and crying your eyes out included.
Phenomenal worldbuilding, character stories and growth, complete with powerful and complex moral decisions. Plus genuine great comedy make this a must-see.
