  • The Wind Rises 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 11 Dec, 2014

    "Miyazaki presents arguably the greatest level of realism seen in any of his films, doing so with patience and panache... The director also uses dreams and the imagination of his characters to wonderful effect throughout, allowing his trademark magical style to permeate these sequences whilst also making them feel perfectly in tune with the realistic tone of the rest of the film".

  • Ponyo 2008

    ★★★ Watched 11 Dec, 2014

    "Ponyo ultimately feels like Miyazaki allowing himself to make a film whilst not firing on all cylinders. But, even when he's not stretching himself to his full potential, the director still manages to turn out perfectly entertaining family-friendly fare such as this". Full review at Film Intel
