A traumatized girl turns to hording in a secret hideout, but when she eats spoiled food she lapses into a hallucinatory coma.
Within this popcorn movie is a very adult theme.

aka Journey to Agartha
A super-secret military robot suit appears in a part-time mechanic's truck, and he fiddles with it enough to get trapped in it. Wanting to visit his soon to be ex-girlfriend, he wrecks a path of havoc while being chased by people trying to retrieve or destroy it.
This movie was a major inspiration for the skimming (ground-gliding) for Ember.
A series of unrelated voiceless-shorts, sort of sometimes stitched together with the theme of robots.
Fairly terrible. It comes across as a set of student efforts. I wouldn't have been impressed even then.
See also The Animatrix - (2003 movie), sort of.
I'll add notes when I re-watch this.
In a future Tokyo which has survived a massive explosion, a highschool student motorcycle gang stumbles into a military research program whose earlier efforts lead to that disaster, and they become embroiled in the revived project.
A genre-defining movie on so many levels. It portrays a world unique to those unfamiliar with manga (a form of Japanese comics) and has both great storytelling and incredible animation.
A space-pirate with a huge bounty on his head shags a hottie who turns out to be a crazy magic-woman who was whoring herself so he'll help her.
This is probably good if you're into anime. I'm not, so it's exaggerated and boring to me. Maybe I'm disinterested because it builds on the universe of a whole manga and not much could fit into the length of this movie.
It's pretty corny crappy stuff. Five hours of it!! The subtitles are totally wrong sometimes.
