Grave, let's all commit suicide, because our life is just to good. We are too happy, let's die, die, die.
Anyone up for mass suicide?

If I had to vote for only one fav...it would be The Cat Returns...
even though I loooooove Nausicaä!!

Mononoke, Porco Rosso, Sen to Chihiro, Howl, Totoro, Laputa...and many others are just so awesome!!

It is a pity that people can´t like such masterpieces...

I agree.. both of these has really stunning art and very creative worlds ^^ But I think Howls is the better one.. Its less childish than Spirited Away

I'm in the middle of watching Kiki's Delivery Service and remembered something:

IT SHOULD BE A LAW FOR EVERY CHILD ON THE PLANET TO WATCH GHIBLI MOVIES ON ROTATION EVERY WEEK UNTIL THEY REACH THE AGE OF 13.

You can take your Disney and shove it up somewhere dark as far as I'm concerned. If I ever have kids, they're getting Ghibli.

*back to watching Kiki*

Being raised on Ghibli since the age of 3, I couldn't agree more.

In answer to the thread, I'll say Nausicaa was quite a masterpiece. I'd show that to someone to get them into Miyazaki, but I could watch Howl's Moving Castle over and over. And... I have.

But #1 Ghibli for me would have to be Grave of the Fireflies. Damn that was a tearjerker.

Ok, how about some actual Ghibli discussion?

The more Ghibli I watch, the more bewildered I am at how Spirited Away probably remains as their most recognisable and 'prestigious' film, seeing as it's the only anime to win an Oscar. Not to slight that film, but Ghibli's filmography has other anime films that move beyond the tropes of anime and are comparable to live action films, stuff like Whisper of the Heart and Only Yesterday, these films should be recognised and praised way more, especially by the west, considering animation is already looked down upon conventionally, these ones should be opening eyes worldwide at anime's worth and importance.

I was reading the Wikipedia entries for Ghibli films, and man... The amount of SHIT that happens to Ghibli films when they're distributed in the USA is unbelievable. It's almost like a manifesto against the practice of dubbing. I mean I was literally shaking with rage while reading the many ways in which Disney and the Weinsteins have attempted to rape Ghibli up the ass. What they did to Nausicaa is like a crime against humanity.

Grave of the Fireflies and Only Yesterday are apparently the only films turned down by Disney for distribution. No surprise there, I'd rather Ghibli films were distributed by a company that wasn’t full of rapists anyway.

Wiki said:
On hearing that Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein would try to cut Princess Mononoke to make it more marketable, one of Studio Ghibli's producers sent an authentic katana with a simple message: "No cuts".


Should of cut his freakin' head off. Would have saved Shaolin Soccer at least.

Lol, Warriors of the Wind is so classic ^_^ I remember seeing that VHS tape at my video store (before I saw Nausicaa) and not realizing it was anime because the cover looked all 80's cartoon/starwars-ish. When I finally caved in and rented it, it didn't make much sense. It is pretty hilarious (and rather horrifying) what was done to it.

Still, I think that once Disney got past the 'no cutting!' rule, they did a reasonably decent job at dubbing. At least they had the money to hire better talent. I mean, Cary Elwes as the Baron is just so perfect *^_^*. Not that they were all perfect (Clare Danes in Mononke Hime, ugh! and Phil Hartman as Jiji.. um wtf...) but they did make some nice choices. (Suzanne Pleshette in Spirited Away, Christian Bale in Howl's)

I do get annoyed when they add in extra lines to explain things to dumb American audiences like they did in Kiki and Spirited Away, and the added or changed music is annoying. I have both the Streamline and Disney Dubs of Kiki, and they both have strengths and weaknesses. I prefer the original Japanese versions of all the films XD

I can see why Only Yesterday would be turned down, it is rather slow-moving and introspective. I love it, one of my favorite old AMVs uses it, but it is somewhat lesser known.

Whispers of the Heart (paired with On Your Mark) is my personal favorite Ghibli film, but I love them all. I went to the Ghibli museum last November, and it was so much fun to see all the displays and information about all the films, and one of the museum-only animation shorts, Yadosagashi. I want to go back again so that I can see the other shorts.

I look forward to Ghibli's new projects~ *_*

It's when they go beyond dubbing dialogue that really begins to grate, they're essentially becoming co-editors, co-scorers, co-directors; reshaping the vision of the original work, its disgusting.

I watched the dub version of Kiki and wanted to strangle to death the guy who voiced the cat, very much wanted to strangle him. But you know, a dub's a dub, fine. Just dont smatter crap over the original's director's work, it's not cool.

Btw, I havent seen the dub of Princess Mononoke but I really cant imagine watching it with Billy Bob Thornton and Jada Pinkett-Smith's voices in there, damn that's got to be distracting as hell.

I've only seen the re-dub of Nausica. I'm glad I didn't see the first one. Sheesh.

My favorite would have to be Princess Mononoke.

I'm watching a lot of ghibli's movies at the moment... and for now I say Spirited Away, straight after I put Mononoke Hime. The gap is minimal.

My favorite Ghibli movie is Laputa: Castle in the Sky. It has everything one could ever want in a movie: action, comedy, romance, adventure, etc. It has a great story and great animation. Every time I went to the movie store, I would rent Laputa. I loved it so much!

I also like Howl's Moving Castle. The animation just blew me away and the dub cast was just great (Christian Bale as Howl...wonderful!). The relationship between Sophie and Howl was just beautiful and I like the theme of youth in the movie.

Out of the six I've seen (must remedy that..), I'd have to go with the popular choice of Spirited Away. It really is that great.

I don't seem to like Princess Mononoke quite as much as most people do, although I still give it an 8. It's probably my least favorite, so far.

Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle are my favorites.

But this new Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea movie they just came out with looks pretty good too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXI7x6ExPuc

But then again I'm just a sucker for cute songs.

I like Ghibli's very much. My favorite one is Spirited Away. But other their movies: Princess Mononoke, Grave of the Fireflies, Howl's Moving Castle, My Neighbour Totoro, Whisper of the Heart, etc. also left very good impression. ^_^
