    Re: Studio Ghibli films

    I've seen a bunch of Studio Ghibli films, but I'm guessing only half of what's actually been made. I should find time to watch the DVDs I already have...

    I have to say that Spirited Away is the Ghibli movie I love the most, and also my favorite film directed by Hayao Miyazaki... At the moment. Ghibli and Hayao's definitely made more than its share of memorable classics. What made me love it was its soundtrack, originality of plot, the sincerity of the whole thing, and of course, the animation. The use of computer-generated animation is in total balance with the traditional animation, and the movie just gave me a pleasant feeling the whole time I was watching it.

    Personally, my favorite movie that wasn't directed by Hayao Miyazaki is Grave of the Fireflies. Same with everything as above, but then, this was so deep... It's just deep, and sobering, and memorable, but in the way you remember a memorial.

    I have seen and own every studio ghibli released. The ghibli collection have some of the best movie ever. And no one can match the skill of Mizayaki. His movies are some of the best in the world like Spirited Away, Howl Moving Castle. Other movie I like are Grave of the Firefly and Whisper of the Heart.

    Re: Studio Ghibli films

    personally i love these films.

    i also like how they can put their company's name in their movies. for instance, when Kiki nearly get plowed by the bus, the bus says "studio ghibli"
    Why hello there!

    Re: Studio Ghibli films

    I'm a huge Studio Ghibli fan! I haven't seen all thier films, but I'm trying to.

    I don't know if I can say which one is "best" or "better" because, I like them all pretty evenly. They're each unique in thier own way. Each has a different story to tell and a moral to teach. If I HAD to pick a favorite, I'd say it's a tie between Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. Princess Mononoke (AKA: Mononoke Hime) was the first Studio Ghibli film I had ever seen, so I've got a soft spot for that movie. ^_^

    Castle in the Sky was really good as well. It was pretty funny in a few parts, but I really liked the story and the art work. Howl's Moving Castle is the only film by Studio Ghibli that I seen in theatres. Most movies, I don't care about missing a couple of minutes to go use the bathroom. But THAT movie, it wasn't happening--and believe me, I felt like I was gonna explode.

    But, in general, I like all of them (the one's I've seen) equally.

    Ghibli has always been a breathe of fresh air for me. Wonderful animation, whimsical stories with touching and human characters. Finally got around to watching Cat Returns recently

    Amen. Although Ghibli does utilize 3D, its hardly noticeable and works to enhance the 2D experience rather than bombard you with rigged puppets and awkward motion capture.

    When I have kids I’ll probably start them on Ghibli instead of Disney/Pixar

    Re: Studio Ghibli films

    They recently showed a whole heap of their movies SBS Down under. I managed to catch (forgive my spelling) "Nausicaa, Valley of the Wind", the first I know of to be shown, then "Howl's Moving Castle", "Laputa, Castle in the Sky", & a couple of others I can't remember the name of, but finishing with "Kiki's Delivery Service" then "Porko Rosso".

    I must admit, I pretty much liked all the ones they showed, though "Kiki's Delivery Service" wasn't as good as the others. While they all had good stories, believable characters, nice toys (Wouldn't mind one of those "Nasicaa, Valley of the Wind" glider things), Kiki's seemed a bit much of a kiddies movie for me.

    The Madman previously known as Daniel219

    Wish I could get on here more often. *Sigh* The down side to night shift...
