Neon Genesis Evangelion - Platinum: The Complete Collection

Though I do believe it to be one of the most overrated series of all time (right next to Love Hina), Neon Genesis Evangelion is awesome in it's own right. I enjoyed everything from it's psychological revelance, to it's interesting characters. After the destruction of Tokyo, huge monsters known as "angels" have been threatening the rebuilt megopolis. It's up to three psychically adept teens to pilot huge mecha robots called Evangelions in order to put these angels to rest. This series is deeper than most, and you may need to watch it twice just to pick up everything. Keep in mind that this series features the worst english dub I've ever had the mispleasure of hearing.

Millennium Actress (Sennen joyű)

This is yet again, a mostly unheard of anime film. It's a little something out of the norm, but Millenium Actress is a very entertaining movie and deserves the a spot on my heart. The movie starts once a once famous actress is given a special key found on the set that she once worked on. From here, the movie narrates her life story, and even shows her tracking down someone she once helped. This is only skimming the surface of the film, which I recommend to everyone regardless of anime preference.

Kumo no muk˘, yakusoku no basho (The Place Promised in Our Early Days)

(Beyond the Clouds, the Promised Place)
Best Animated Film - Mainichi Film Awards 2004
Makoto Shinkai directed it very nicely, I love how he captured the scenery and characters in this movie, and love the scene involving Sayuri and Hiroki's first train ride together and the heartwarming ending... ^_^

Samurai X - The Motion Picture (Rur˘ni Kenshin: Ishin shishi e no Requiem)

This was basically like an extended version of a typical TV Series episode. This time, Kenshin teams up with Japanese Meiji Era police officers whose job it is to put down some rebels who had fought in the Revolution. These rebels are ex-samurai, who feel that their hard work to restore Japan and to bring about the new era has been for nothing--that they have been abused by people who cannot even hold a sword, let alone defend anything with it.

Rur˘ni Kenshin: Seis˘ hen (Samurai X: Reflection)

Reflection tells the story of what happens after the TV series of Rurouni Kenshin. In other words, when Kenshin is an old man. If you haven't seen anything before this, I suggest you wait until you do before reading this, because there are a few spoilers here and there. Kenshin has married Kaoru and they have a son named Kenji. Kenshin, rather than staying at home, travels for long periods of time after his marriage to "reflect" on his past. Meanwhile, Kaoru stays at home and in bed, pining for her husband, and Kenji goes off to try his hand at training in Hiten Mitsurugi swordsmanship style with Kenshin's old master, Seijiro Hiko.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

If you have seen the original version with Gene Wilder, you are better off not watching this one. It is not as good. However, If you have never seen the original, you will really enjoy this one. It is a beautiful story about an impoverished little boy who ends up winning a tour through the worlds largest candy factory, which happens to be owned by an eccentric weirdo (Johnny Depp). Because of his innocence and honesty, the little boy ends up inheriting the incredible factory and saving his family from poverty.

The special effects (Tim Burton) are amazing and you really feel like you have been on a wild adventure when the movie ends. Enjoy!
