Howls Moving Castle
Grave of the Fireflies?
I really can't decide.
Why? Because Grave of the Fireflies is pretty wank.
i prefer howl's but that is because i prefer miyazaki to takahata as a director. HMC is a lot more of a feel-good film, it's a lot more magical. GotF is very sad, but it is also very moving.
buy princess mononoke.
and I got Nausicaa for pretty cheap the otherday.
If it wasn't for me being so tired when I started watching it, id have got through it in one attempt.
Klaire, high five!
i need to try it again
that one's even better
But it's ACE
Not 3am. I might stay awake then. This happened with Akira as well.
at ridiculous hours though
A MYSTIC CONNECTION?!
for the evil
pom poko? it's a good takahata
so you can feel real bad but in a good way. Howl's Moving Castle is like a weaker remake of Spirited Away.
Tell me about it, please.
It's got loads of racoons that turn into people and shit like that.
they are trying to stop their homes from being ruined by new houses so they use magic to turn themselves into humans then back into raccoons to scare people away and generally cause havoc. there are some really cool scenes like when they turn into giant hands and play what looks like rock paper scissors

was said very forcefully...is that an order then...
Men in Black Men.
Thanks people :) x
what anime do you use subtitles or the dub version. had many a heated discussions about this.
my view is any foreign film should be watched with subtitles except animation
Plus howls is brilliant. still havn't seen grave of the fireflies
with anime dubbed is best
THANKS A LOT.
Erm...yeah I usually watch foreign films with subtitles. The animated version of Ichi The Killer is in subtitles though, that's still great.
but most dubbing is done so badly with such terrible actors, and i find it a lot easier to read a subtitle with awkward translation and just take the meaning from it than to listen to someone say something that's just clearly shit.
plus who on earth cast billy bob thornton to voice act in princess mononoke. i love the billy bob but serious there must have been someone a little less southern american to play that role
You asked the world about this!
I thought I was special.. *sobs* :P
Sorry, special one :-p
is worth a million "other" opinions.
You know I'm better than the lowly scum on this board. ;)
while i like both, in infinitely prefer Howls.
they're VERY different films though, like comparing 'the princess bride' with... 'saving private ryan'... kind of.
