    Prove me wrong.

    He is like...the Disney of anime.

    Yeah, 'cept that Miyazaki isn't anti-Jew and doesn't sell out.

    I said "is like"

    Three of my favorite movies are by Miyazaki: Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Kiki's Delivery Service.

    Kiki's Delivery Service always made me sad for some reason.

    Im not a fan of all his work, although Spirited Away is one of my favorite movies, and he also worked on Princess Mononoke which is in my top five anime movie lists. I also enjoyed Castle in the sky and Nassica.
  7. Diabolikal Rapture MPAA's Nightmare

    I absolutely adore most all of his work, Spirited away, Howl's Moving Castle, everything. I agree Sean, he truly is the Disney of anime.

    You all can go to hell in a wheel borrow for not mentioning Whispers of the Heart and Porco Rosso T__T;.
  9. Overdose Delusion So strange what love does.

    Sadly the only Miyazaki film I've seen in its entirety was Princess Mononoke[i/], which I saw in theaters. I enjoyed it greatly though, and I'd really like to watch more Miyazaki someday.

    I've actually only managed to watch two Miyazaki films in full -- Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. I found both of them thoroughly entertaining, and I always mean to watch his others, I just never get around to it.

    This thread can die for not mentioning the best Miyazaki film - and probably the best anime movie period - Nausicca of the Valley of the Wind. A pretty broad movie that visits a lot of themes, some that are revisited in Princess Monoke which is a movie that has always been overrated to me.

    As for Spirited Away, I like the movie but only because it emits the same kind of whimsical charm that I remember from the much more entertaining and charming movie My Neighbor Totoro. A very magical film.

    Those are my two favorite Miyazaki films, all other range from pretty decent to unwatchable.

    So yeah, Miyazaki isn't God, he's just a competent anime film director who has actually worsened over the years.
