We Review "From Up On Poppy Hill"
What do we have here? It's our first Video Review! The Geeky Guru is back on camera with Kaiju's first video appearance.
From Up On Poppy Hill will be released on September 3rd in the US by GKIDS/Cinedigm. Yes, that is correct, I did not mention Disney as they are not involved with this release.
As a departure from standard Ghibli fair, like "The Wind Rises", this movie is a period piece set in 1963 Japan. As such, it's not a children's film, but more for young adults and older. There is no violence or nudity or anything like that, it's just where the story goes.
As being our first video review, please tell us what we can do to make things better.
