Hayao Miyazaki movies

Filed in: TV & Movies.

My brother bought a bunch of Hayao Miyazaki movies recently. He's responsible for the award winning anime Spirited Away, which I enjoyed a great deal. I've already watched:

Princess Mononoke: This one seemed confusing, mainly for the reason that the main character Ashitaka seemed to swap allegiences at the drop of a hat. I guess what he was really rooting for was peace, but I didn't think that came across well.

Laputa: Castle in the Sky: Steampunk is cool. This has Anna Paquin and Mark Hamill providing voices for the English dub. I highly recommend this one.

And tonight I have Kiki's Delivery Service to watch...

Oooh! Kiki's Delivery Service! That's my favorite of his films. She's got a little black cat who reminds me of a small Leo. :-) I showed that movie to mom. I don't think she's ready yet for Spirited Away but she really liked Kiki. :-)

That was a good movie - I liked it. :) That cat put up with so much...

I have to say, My Neighbor Totoro is one of my faves - but dang, Kiki's Delivery Service is good, too. I would be hard-pressed to say which of his movies I most enjoy.
