Alice in Wonderland meets Labyrinth,
This review is from: The Cat Returns [DVD] (DVD)
I am a anime fan and love to watch the full range of movies they supply. The Cat Returns was a brilliant film to watch for children and adults alike. The sheer fantasy of this film blew me away (I thought only I could come up with strange ideas like talking cats that kidnapp people and take them through portholes to the cat kingdom) and the animation was fantastic with attention to detail that if you blinked you would miss a whole scene. It was a fun movie, borrowing from themes in Alice in Wonderland and the movie Labyrinth, which are both favourites from my childhood. I highly recommend purchasing this DVD for your anime collection it is something I would watch again along with other greats like Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle and Grave of the Fireflies. If only Hollywood would put this much effect into storylines like these, then we may end up in a world that is inspired about life rather than being a spectator.
