A lot of fun. Play a lot of Japanese video games and you may end up recognizing half the yokai in this.

I can't understand how it's possible to not like this. It's a ridiculously epic fairytale by Takashi Miike revolving around the most far-out monsters I've ever seen. The costumes are incredible, the story is somehow really likable and it features the cutest "cat" ever put on film. How I have only a 55 PSI on this is beyond me. Living a life where you can't enjoy a film like this must be quite boring. Sure, it's predictable, but.. one of the monsters is a goddamn umbrella. It's just awesome.

Miike evokes Spielberg in this weird but likable "children's" film. Like the best kids' films, The Great Yokai War doesn't let kids off easy. It contains nightmare fuel but a lot of catharsis and a clear arc for its protagonist (even though the unnecessarily downbeat ending tanks the narrative). The CGI effects feel artificial, lacking any ancillary CGI to integrate it into the environment, but the practical effects compensate. The film has intriguing ideas and a good look at Japanese mythology.

Nothing special until the last twenty minutes or so.
