The film is set in a reality where no one has ever lied, including politicians right upto the common man or woman.

Im not a ricky Gervais fan, just found his brand of humour to dry and complicated but if you liked Ghost Town, Im sure you’ll like this.

Anyone who Knows me, knows Im a massive fan of Japanese Animation (anime) and especially the work of legendary Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki and the Studio Ghibli. The last Ghibli release was Tales From The Earthsea which got a mixed review and was directed bi Miyazaki’s son Goro and for many year Hayao Miyazaki has said he will retire and time again he comes back, well he’s back with Ponyo on the cliff a adventure centered on a 5-year-old boy and his relationship with a goldfish princess who longs to become human. They are magical fantastically created pieces of artwork and once again this will be another masterpiece which kids of all ages will enjoy, well he’s the only Japanese animator to win a oscar (Spirited Away)
Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, tina Fey, Noah Cyrus, Lily Tomlin,Matt Damon and Betty Davenport all lend their voice acting skills to this film as well
Its just sad many people only think Anime is full of sex hungry monsters, porn, blood and violence, well we have the our media to thank for this, put your negativity to the back for a few hours and go watch this wonderful little animation. The film is been released by Disney probably on limited release, Film will be out in UK August
