Weathering with You

Weathering with You ★★★★★

Thank the cinema gods for the anime industry and for Makoto Shinkai, because there is no way that Hollywood would produce such a gorgeous, epic film based on such a simple and sweet romance. As with all his films, every frame of this is stunning and amazingly detailed. After the dead eyed atrocity of Lion King’s CGI, this is a stark reminder of the power of 2D animation, and also a reminder of CGI animation done right. A perfect companion piece to Your Name.
