Knights of Sidonia Cast 2After a movie drought lasting a few weeks, I watched two films:  Rent-a-Neko and The Quiet Ones. Tonight I’ll watch Museum Hours and Cold Eyes. I still have about eight film reviews to write and now I have three from this list to add on (although Rent-a-Neko is practically finished)!!! It’s a good thing that I’ve got a day off coming up after my trip down to London. I’ve already completed some posts for the next fortnight although there will only be two per week – anime/film reviews and trailers.

This week I posted about the Japanese films at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (that feature from Naomi Kawase looks so good!) and I also posted my first impression of Knights of Sidonia.

Here’s a bunch of trailers for the Japanese films released this week and there are some interesting looking titles!
