Review – Your Name

January 2nd, 2018
Starting of 2018 with an amazing movie that I'd love to share with all of you. This movie may have released in 2016, but I've been hearing a lot of great things and much talk of this movie. It was finally time for us to check out "Your Name"!

At first, the movie was leaving me a bit confused. I wasn't understanding why they couldn't remember anything until I continued on watching.

As you continue to watch, you end up going through a very emotional roller-coaster. I feel like I've grown attached to the main characters. Not to mention, the movie is extremely beautiful to look at. Every scene has a nice palette to make the movie feel warm & magical. After watching this movie, it's definitely made my drive to visit Japan even greater now!

About "Your Name"

The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint.
When a dazzling comet lights up the night’s sky, it dawns on them. They want something more from this connection—a chance to meet, an opportunity to truly know each other. Tugging at the string of fate, they try to find a way to each other. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart. Is their bond strong enough to face the cruel irony of time? Or is their meeting nothing more than a wish upon the stars?

I look forward to watching this movie again.

I know this post doesn't sound as much as a review, but I would like to bring it to light and highly recommend anyone to check it out. I'd hope this recommendation doesn't disappoint you and if you have seen it, i'd love to know your thoughts in the comments below. ♥

  • Oh cool! I hadn’t heard of Your Name before, but the summary is intriguing, and WOW the illustrations are gorgeous – I will probably watch this movie for that reason alone, lol. Thanks for the heads up! :)

  • I’ve heard a lot about this animated movie as well, thank you for sharing your thoughts! I love when they make you feel all sorts of things, and I think the more dramatic and intense they are, the better impression they leave. :)
