Anime and Visual Effects

Sunday evening was a good night for Japanese movies in Los Angeles. This year “The Boy and the Heron,” Miyazaki Hayao’s latest movie, got the Academy Award for the best animated feature film. People who have seen it say that it is a difficult and strange film that makes you think, but most people love it. “Godzilla 1.0” got the award for the best visual effects. It has been 70 years since the first Godzilla movie came out in 1954, and they keep on coming! I haven’t seen either of these movies, but they are both in movie theaters now. All I have to do is find the time to go.
