I am a huge miyazaki fan and loved this flick. I do have others I like better too. Porco Rosso,Nausica,Whisper of the heart,Totoro.

Have you seen Grave of the fireflies? Not for little kids and rocked me!

I've seen Grave of the Fireflies. While I can appreciate it intilectually, the constant sadness in the film puts it lower on the list for me. The treatment of the kids left me fealing angry for most of the movie. I know the point was to show the hardships, but it just isn't something I'd watch again.

My favorite is Nausica. There was an English dub of it called Warriors of the Wind that my mom recorded on cable when I was kid. It was one of my four favorite movies, the others being the Rankin and Bass animated Hobbit, The Last Unicorn and Flight of Dragons. But Warriors of the Wind was my favorite.

As an adult, it took me forever to find out anything about it or where I could get it and when I did I found out it wasn't even the complete movie; parts of it had been cut. I was thrilled when the hubby bought me Nausica and I finally got to watch the entire movie.

Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. It was a really funny sequel. How can it not be when Bette Midler voices the villain.

Finished the Netflix compilaltion of season 2 of Damages. What a good series! I'm really not a Ted Danson fan, but his character on this and some really varied other roles is making for a growing respect for his work. And finding Darryl Hammond here as an ice-cold killer, well, another type-casting out the windfow.

ted dansen's movie, cousins, might not make you into a fan either, but is a fine film in which ted dansen delivers another solid performance....

Visually it was very interesting...

The acting and script stank... bad...

Visually wonderful.. especially in HD.

Wait on it... yeah.. not a bad plan.
