Sad that people are only watching now because it won an oscar. It is really good. No face is one of my faves characters. I still think Totoro is best out of all the films.

the only reason i hadnt seen it before yesterday was because it was in such limited release. as such, i had already ordered it from Diamond distributors through a friend of mine.

i do like the movie a lot though... its a wonderful fairy tale, in a world where so few are made anymore without coming off like a preteen chicafest. Miyazaki's movies always leave me feeling great, no matter who dies or how the plot is resolved. His artistry and humor, direction and compassion always works for me. everything is gray... even the villians have many good points and are mainly likable.

I recommend this to all anime fans, even those wierdo DBZ fans.

it wasn't supposed to be released here yet - all the posters still read coming soon - even at the cinema we went to. i suppose the oscar meant there was more of a demand for it. we only stumbled across it by accident, it wasn't advertised or anything.

i would have definately seen it regardless of it winning anything. it's just that much better that we got to see it at the movies.

if we're luky, this will herald a new age of wide anime releases... i mean, after crouching tiger, the theater was flooded with romantic fighting epics from across the sea... then i died down... my only hope is that anime will find a nice that keeps it in wide release, but doesnt pollute it with hollywood mentality.

heheh... did you here that there were Hispanic and Latino lobbying groups pushing to have Laputa's name change in the american version because when broken it means "the whore" (at least, i THINK thats what it means)...

haaaaahahahaha

i got to watch spirited away this weekend and here are my thoughts:

the flick itself was good, very weird and full of random tangents, but it seemed to keep on track for the most part. the animation was great, i liked the randomness in the characters 'cause it reminded me of a alice in wonderland cast. my only real complaint about the film was the soundtrack. i hated it. it really makes me wonder if disney rescored the film to lighten it up for kids. it just didn't sound like it fit into the production at all. i know that disney didn't edit any of the film content, but does anyone know if they changed the score? i'd be interested in finding out...
