Tonight I watched the supposed to be final movie of the Doraemon franchise, "Stand By Me Doraemon". I watched it earlier than its expected Feb 2015 Blu-ray release. Someone from Indonesia leaked the theatrical digital copy and uploaded it in the torrents. The quality of rip is more than watchable and I don't mind the subs as long as I can still understand the movie.
This movie far differs from any Doraemon movies made as of date since this movie was done in full 3D CGI. I'm quite impressed to see the consistency of the character designs and how they were converted so well in 3D. The animation was very solid and pleasant and not awkward to look at.
Having watched Doraemon for as long as I have lived, this movie surely brought my childhood back and I felt really nostalgic just watching this movie. I remember why I didn't want to miss a single episode of Doraemon back when I was still in kindergarten or elementary.
I can safely say that you don't need to have watched any Doraemon for you to enjoy this movie. This movie is a standalone one and retells the Doraemon story in a different way that is just perfect for an hour and a half theatrical release. Unlike the TV anime which is basically just comedy, this movie was quite emotional and heartwarming at the same time. Never did I see that in the TV anime before. It's a perfect movie to watch with the whole family!
I give Stand By Me Doraemon an 8/10.
