Today was a double-feature. Patlabor The Movie 1 and 2.
The first movie has a special place in my heart. It was one of the first anime I ever watched, and the first to feature mecha.
The art is getting pretty old looking, but as with most of the movies of this era, it is what makes them special.
One of the best things they did was to show computer graphics when they were interacting with the computer programs. Boy, the future of computers looks pretty tired. 🙂 It was great for the time period, and the ironic thing is that the second movie takes place in 1999. Too bad, we are WAY past that and we still don’t have robots walking around. Boo! Ah well, something to look forward to in the future. For now, more movie watching. If you have not seen Patlabor before, check it out. And if you have, I bet it’s been a while. Enjoy!
