    Greatest miyazaki film

    Hey guys, I am new here and I am big fan of Miyazaki. Just wanted to find out what the consensus is on the (Mod edit) greatest. Thus far, I am leaning towards "Spirited Away," "Princess Mononoke" and "Nausicaa..."

    Also, could you guys give me some more ideas on what to get into, watch, etc? I just recently bought "Akira," great, and "Perfect Blue" which I have yet to watch. I also own "ghost in the shell."

    thanks.

    Definately watch Perfect Blue.
    Try to formulate your qestion in a different way because favourite threads get the gas chamber treatment here.
    A thread about Miyazaki certainly has alot of potential to become a good discussion...

    hmmmm.... a discussion on Miyazaki?

    The man is amazing as is Studio Gibli. Their work is totally marked with excellence beyond compare. I'm enjoying the Disney releases, it's nice to get unhacked versions of thier movies, but I want to know what is being released in Japan!

    Is there any way to get newer releases? (Mind you I can't read or understand Japanese....guess I'm probably out of luck.) Even a plot synopsis would be appreciated.

    Is there any other Japanese studio's that can even compare in quality? If so, what have they released?


    My favorite part of Miyazaki's films is the way even the incidental characters take on a life of their own. Down to the "radish spirit" in "Spirited Away".

    l Stone Hold l Now We're Cooking! l Thanks to Kaos for the awesome sig!

    thanks Hassun. i'm not going to lie, i don't truly know a lot about the dynamics of anime or japanese animation. i do love it and do enjoy to watch it. i will definitely wath perfect blue tonight. i remember the first time i actually watched a miyazaki film. it was princess mononoke, maybe four years ago, or three. my cousin let me borrow on a whim and i plopped down, put it into the surround sound theater and watched. brilliant stuff. i love the way he paints emotion. it is so powerful yet subtle. and the ones i have seen have a certain magical quality to them that is so incredible inviting and, to be perfectly honest, mesmerizing. i am pretty sure i prefer the miyazaki stories compared with the more violent likes of akira and ghost in the shell, although both great films. the violence reminds me of kill bill, in a way. this otherworldly, brilliantly colorful grotesque deterioration.

    i own porco rosso, spirited away, mononoke, nausicaa of the miyazaki films. i was thinking about buying castle in the sky and the cat returns. any others?

    Try this LINK if you want some info on mr Miyazaki

    If you're interested in more of mr Miyazaki's work I also recommend
    "Laputa: Castle in the sky",
    "Kiki's delivery service",
    "My neighbour Totoro" and
    "Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro" (You'll need some Lupin background for that one though).

    yeah perfect blue is definitely a good movie, but it gets really confusing as it gets into the middle part...

    do check out grave of the fireflies too, donno if I can call it "great" because it's more like "powerful" than "great"

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
