Saw this movie with Japanese dialogue when it appeared at Cineplex Silvercity Ancaster and it was worth the popcorn! Plenty of teen humour/pop culture moments plus some fine Japanese storytelling/mythology plotlines.
Eager to see the forthcoming live action movie by J.J. Abrams.

This is a neat romance tale with a touch of time theory added. It's a great teen appropriate romance. The little bit of contrast between the lives of a young boy growing up in Tokyo vs a young girl growing up in a small Japanese town were an interesting feature of the film (IMHO). Some of the visuals are just stunning in this film. Take your time and enjoy it.

Very beautiful movie! It has romance, comedy and the visuals are outstanding! It's defiantly one that makes you think. A romance movie tied with time, a bit of freaky Friday and the butterfly effect. If you are a Life Is strange fan or anime fan check this one out!

The anime was nice; but I thought this was a movie for adults, and after seeing it, I think it's a kids' movie. Unless you are really into this type of movie, I would not recommend this for adults.

I cried even harder than Angel Beats! That means something right?..
I recommend both Subbed and Dub. I don't even care.
Seriously at least this movie on it's own is good. Since the Author of the book says not to watch the movie.. Eh I give it my own opinion.

Prepare to cry your eyes out. This film is not easily followed... so watch it twice? Or maybe three times?

Great movie. The uncertainty of how things would unfold int he movie kept us on the edge of our seats. My 9 year old really enjoyed the movie.

Even though I was mesmerized by the top quality of the colourful detail in this animation film, written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, I rated this film not as high due to the complexity of the story, being expressed on film, and I thought, not all that successfully. You have to wait until the end, for some things to make more sense, but you also have to take a leap-of-faith of the possibility of the story line.
No extras to view.

A beautiful, touching film with a spiritual spin. It is not the most original story -- a mix of Freaky Friday and Donnie Darko -- but the writing, artwork, and music make it something more. See it with someone you love. About J.J. Abrams proposed remake: ignoring for a moment the advisability of remaking a film only a couple years old, how could a live action remake work? Possibly a body exchange between a couch potato city boy, and a Native girl who dreams of leaving her village, and whose grandmother is a spiritual leader. The religious and racial aspects would be tricky to handle, but a sensitive director like Taika Waititi would help.

A story of love, with beautiful illustrations and a deep meaning, you definetly will tear up.
Not gonna give away too much because you have to watch it for yourself. (Is a little confusing so be prepared to watch it more than once!)
