Intriguing Themes Beneath Wonderful Visual Detail
   Well I suppose it’s only right to open this review with a disclaimer.  Given my recent tear through the genre of (domestic) computer animated feature films, I suppose it’s pretty much natural that curiosity and the desire to draw comparisons would lead me back to my anime roots.  After all, I reasoned, it’s downright amazing how different the approach between American and Asian methodology is when concerning the art of computer-generated film:  Here …

As a fan of Asian cinema, I've often wondered why I haven't reviewed more Japanese anime. Traditional anime has very complex storylines that can put most movies to shame. "VEXILLE" (a.k.a.

Humans and robots start to mix forming an eerie …

Not everyone is an anime fan, if they're basing their opinion on the first of this genre. But Vexville comes as a riveting surprise, first, for the amazing light-years progress of anime and CGI, and second, for the storyline that is quite incredible for this artform.    Set in the future, Japan has isolated itself against a world that seeks to stop the integration of robotics with human beings. Japan (in the story) is a world leader in the development of these robot applications, …
