  • My Neighbor Totoro

    My Neighbor Totoro

    ★★★★½

    Miyazaki, more than most filmmakers I can name, has a total mastery of atmosphere. Totoro's bittersweet (though, mostly just sweet) tone is fully realized thanks to dependably gorgeous animation and a wonderful score.

    Side note, the Fanning sisters on the Disney dub are fantastic. Their performances deserve serious recognition, especially given how young they were and how out-there the material is.

  • Castle in the Sky

    Castle in the Sky

    ★★★★½

    What an absolute stunner. Much like Nausicaä before it, Castle in the Sky presents the audience with a vividly realized world, filled with memorable characters, creatures and locations. While this film is certainly more light-hearted than its predecesor, it still delivers the same emotional whallop and offers a similar discussion on the human tampering of nature.

    I remember the tagine for this movie being, "bust a moo on April 2" so, every April 2 I bust a couple moos in its honor.

    ★★★★½

    Can this just come to where I live already so I can see it again 100 more times, rather than just constantly thinking about it?????????
