A family-friendly Disney/Ghibli vibe that's fun enough, though definitely has "for kids" goofiness in it, but goes a bit deeper emotionally than typical non-Pixar family movies.
An interesting, mysterious story that while gorgeously animated, feels more like a stand-out episode of a Sci-Fi TV series than a standalone movie.
A Classic D&D-style Adventure with the Goblin Slayer crew. Doesn't particularly add much to the series but brings in a new character and better animation.
If you, like me, finished the main series thinking "Well, I'm not really sure what happened, but there's another movie to wrap up those loose ends" then this won't be too satisfying. While some questions are answered, it creates more than those it answers. It does have one of the greatest fight scenes I've seen in animation.
With gorgeous enhanced visuals and artistic detail, Tamako Love Story dives a bit deeper into the human relationships presented in the series with a slightly more serious tone.
This is right smack dab in the good section of good movies that are made well. An excellently executed drama exploring the joys of really getting to know someone.
While interesting to see one of Makoto Shinkai's earlier works, this left me not really feeling anything. The first section was gorgeous and emotional, but the rest left me wanting.
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.
Focusing primarily on strong sisterly bonds, this movie is less of a Post-War Drama and more of a Period Drama (think Jane Austen meets Charles Dickens). It has calmer pacing than the series with even more gorgeous art and animation.
