Anime compilation films offer a chance for creators to refine and retell the original stories that were so popular. In some cases, they even allow for an expanded retelling of the original story or they provide an alternate ending to shake things up a bit.
Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) in “Fifty Shades of Grey” is a completely different person from the character who appears in “Fifty Shades Freed”. Instead, it looks like she’s slightly smirking in her scenes, as if she’s fully aware of the unbelievable situations she finds herself in in “Fifty Shades Freed”. The movie is the final instalment in the “Fifty Shades” trilogy, based on the book of the same name.

One can take elegant, beautiful shots of food — but push it too far, and it drifts into the realm of food porn. Fortunately, “The Last Recipe” never descends into such territory. Based on the Japanese novel of the same title, this culinary drama follows the adventures of modern-day talented extremist chef Mitsuru Sasaki (Kazunari Ninomiya) as he traces the life of legendary Imperial chef Naotaro Yamagata (Hidetoshi Nishijima) in the 1930s, in a search for the eponymous recipe.
“All the Money in the World” may have been plagued with multiple production issues, but that hasn’t stopped it from being an excellent film. Given the reshoot schedules and urgent recasting of Christopher Plummer as J. Paul Getty (he replaced Kevin Spacey), you’d have thought that it would show in the final product. The film is a crime thriller that’s based on the book “Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty”.
“12 Strong” is an American war drama that’s based on the book “Horse Soldiers”, which tells the tale of a group of American soldiers sent to Afghanistan right after the 9/11 attacks. It’s not executed in the way you might think, and the balanced depiction of non-American characters is rather impressive. There are some cliches, such as battle-hardened characters who secretly harbour great loss, or mindlessly devout warlords who espouse extreme views.
Films based on high profile, relatively well-known “true stories” usually emphasise performance and pacing over plot. After all, it’s difficult to maintain tension when most of your audience already knows how the film will end. Viewers of “The Post” will probably already know the events that the movie is based on.
It’s amazing how “Narratage” managed to get by censors with just a PG13 rating. Did they actually watch the film? Granted, it’s a hefty 140 minutes long, but it’s a troubling thought that they would award this film a mere PG13 rating, when the plot and subject matter are so disturbing.
The ostensibly simple premise for Japanese romantic anime “Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom?” later evolves into a surprisingly deeper and more complex story that requires a fair level of thinking and processing from audiences. It uses a combination of traditional 2D hand-drawn animation and 3D animation for vehicles and mechanical objects. Story-wise, main character Nazuna (Suzu Hirose) is revealed to be more than a pretty face.
