You can pick your friends, and you can pick your movies, but your friends will make you watch anime.

September delivered a couple of great movies and a handful of solid entertainments. I ran out of time to review all of them, with Octoblur 2016 ready to spring on me tomorrow with its daily onslaught of horror, so this minimalist ordered recap of my preferences will have to suffice, for now:
