Barefoot Gen, yes would like to see that.

Tried watching GitS SSS whilst a bit drunk. Nearly fell asleep. >.< So much Basil Exposition :roll:

Seen Gunbuster when it was on C4

Seen a Patlabour. The one with HOS and where they will all go berserk when the wind reaches a certain speed.

EofE I want to see and dunno about the other two.

Golgo 13 was cool. Duke taking on Gold and Silver, and everyone else.
Violence Jack is full on gore and mayhem.
Vampire HUnter D is pretty good too.

Patlabor 2 isn't as good as first one, but still worth watching.
Ninja Scroll movie I really liked as well.

Well since a lot have already been listed, I'll only mention a few.

Metropolis - 'tis very very good.
Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, - is alright not up to much plot wise but the fights are done really well.
Steamboy - is visually great but story wise is a bit average and perhaps overly long.
There's a Macross Plus movie but I'd only recommend it if you've not seen the OVAs.

I second Metropolis.

Plus I think selling point for SF2 fan boys was a nekkid Chun Li. But it's better than the SF2 Alpha movie anyway.

Yes it is a selling point but we never mention that in public. :shifty: I agree with you that it's better then SFII Alpha but then again so are most things

SF II goes straight into the not touching with a barge pole.

I like to have a plot in my films, even if the anime ones tend towards "WTF?"

Surely some of the recommendations are either going to require having seen the series or will spoil it?

A Wind Named Amnesia looks like the typical early 90's post apocalyptic film I like :)

BUUUUUT.... I can only find it in the US.

*add it to wish list for next expo*

Ok, did the bit where I said I'd seen Blackjack the Movie, Howl's Moving Castle, Tokyo Godfathers and was after GOOD (SFII I'm looking at you) films pass people by? :P

I have seen Roujin-Z too, but I left it off the list as it was listed under OVA.

As for MSN-Prince of Darkness, doesn't that suck balls?

I think I have some wiki'ing to do.

Since some people have listed OVA series' I'll mix them in with my suggestions too.

My Neighbours The Yamadas - The Ghibli film everyone thinks is boring because it doesn't have magical flying super mystical creature action. It's very sweet though, it looks lovely and has a nice line in slice o' life situation comedy.

The Venus Wars - Clunky, a bit 80's but with lots of nice looking explosions.

Devilman - (I just seem to be going back through the Manga video back catalogue here) Yeah, it's a three episode OVA but it's a fun little action horror flick. Gory fights and a hilariously great dub.

Urotsukidoji 1 - 4 - There's always time for Urotsukidoji, right?

There're three Appleseed films out now. The first 2 are definitely worth watching but I can't comment on the new one yet.

Legend of Crystania is a nice slice of fantasy action too but it's been a loooong time since I've seen it so it's probably aged terribly.

Devilman! Was trying to think of that one.

Also, yes, Overfiend is some mad badness.
