    Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro


    There is nothing wrong with this movie per se, but when you watch it it's clear this isn't in the same thematic spectrum as Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli movies.

    It was a cute, funny,adventurous story about a famous thief who wishes to help a princess who is about to marry an evil man. The story is solid and fun but it just doesn't even compare to the rest of Miyazaki's movies.

    It is a great debut film. It is just strange to see his very first film after watching the rest of his masterpieces.

    I love Sheeta and Pazu together. His awe and resilience and her magic and kindness were the perfect combination.

    I love how Miyazaki keeps telling us technology and western ambition will ruin our roots and connection to nature and the world.

    I am not a big horror movie fan, mostly because they scare the bejesus out of me and haunt for the rest of the week. I can't say why but I was feeling brave and decided to give this movie a chance. While I was glad to see that my threshold for horror has increased, I don't feel this movie is as fantastic as many people say.

    The approach to the horror genre is certainly refreshing. There is not that…

    Absolutely amazing! Skarsgard completely made Pennywise his own with a goofy maniacal laugh and terrifying appearances. Also, the New Kids on the Block references were on point!
