Lately i am kinda drifting on series to watch so how bout some good movie recommendations from you guys? Keep in mind i have seen all the major miyazaki films. Check my list for what i have seen for the bulk.

So build me like a playlist of maybe 5 or 6 movies to watch in marathon. There is some on my plan to watch list if you strongly recommend that would help too!

This is pretty obvious but I'd go for a Kara no Kyoukai marathon any day of the week. It's approximately 9 hours if you watch all seven movies plus the epilogue, so it's about the same length as the five-six movies you requested.

It might be a bit heavy on the gore side if you watch it all in a row - I'm biased and used to it, but I think it can be done. Of course, it would mean sitting through cannibalism, rape and a lot of blood all in the span of nine hours, so consider it if you're ever up for a challenge.

Good luck on your marathon, whatever you decide to do of it!

Heyo! I'll give it a go.
I only see a couple of Satoshi Kon movies on your to-do list. This must be rectified. You could have a Kon-a-thon with Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika, but I wouldn't want a Kon overdose. You may not survive.

So how about something like this;

Tekkon Kinkreet
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo
Tamala 2010: a punk cat in space
Tokyo Godfathers
Aachi wa Ssipak

There's a couple of love-them-or-hate-them movies in there, so let me know how you get on, but you should absolutely watch some Kon. Good stuff. :)
