Review Info:

Memories is what happens when three well-known Japanese directors each kick in one short anime piece (a scifi ghost story, a bioterrorism comedy [no, seriously], and a dystopian day-in-the-life). Technically it would be more fair to review each segment separately, but three reviews for 113 minutes of runtime would be rather silly, now wouldn't it?

Fun fact: in every panel of today's comic, there is some aspect of my art that reminds me of someone else's comic. For instance, something about the profile in panel one makes me think of Jeph Jacques's work, especially since I stole my current way of drawing eyes from him. Can you guess the other artistic similarities I see? Given that they exist primarily in my head, I'm guessing not!
At the heart of Four Panels is a simple concept: we like to watch movies. Unfortunately, movie tickets are expensive (especially for first-run showings) and so we can't actually see movies in the theater as often as we'd like.

If you can afford it, please consider donating. You can even pay us to review a specific movie! Just click the button to pay for our tickets, and include a note with your payment.
