The number one box office sensation of 2016 in Japan finally comes to US theaters this weekend: Makoto Shinkai’s masterpiece Your Name. That’s the one I intend to see, but another interesting option is Colossal, about a woman connected to a gigantic alien trashing downtown Seoul (because I guess it couldn’t afford the ticket to make it to Tokyo, which has a rich cultural heritage of being trampled by giant monsters). Actually, I might have to see them both this weekend.
