Comments On Style:
All of the movies that he had done in the past were some of my favorites. He did Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3 which happen to my favorite movies. I saw the movies and the special effects were really good. I think If I had the chance to interview Mr. Morihiro, I would’ve learned a lot from him. The movie “Watch-Men” was really good too and it had a lot of good special effects. I really enjoy the movies that Koji Morihiro had worked with. It’s just too bad that he was busy with his work to have an interview with me.
