“When it comes to the fantasy genre, anime movies have a lot to offer. Which is why I was looking forward to this movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDrifting Home is a movie that could have been really good. But, it tries to be 2 things at once. I admire plenty of stuff about this movie. I think thereu0026#39;s a really sweet friendship at the core of the movie, some good teenage drama (except for one character, who I thought was very annoying), a couple of good character stories, interesting supernatural entities and really good direction. There are many shots in this movie which are beautifully drawn. And it actually has some intense escape sequences which I didnu0026#39;t expect.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s just that this movie canu0026#39;t decide what it is. If this was a 90 minute school drama, I might have really enjoyed this. If it was a supernatural mystery with some character building as well, I would have really enjoyed that as well, because the first hour was a great setup for a mystery. But itu0026#39;s neither of those things. It takes 2 hours of runtime trying to be both at once which didnu0026#39;t work for me. Since it sees itself as a drama it doesnu0026#39;t explain many of the supernatural stuff that happens convenient for the sake of the characters and the plot. And the drama in the middle of all the disastrous stuff happening, worked for once but it got really repetitive after a while. In the end it just dragged on and got a bit messy. I donu0026#39;t think itu0026#39;s bad at all. Itu0026#39;s just that it could have been a lot more than it is.”
