This was actually a rewatch – one of my absolute faves! 8 years ago
As with Spirited Away, I didn’t find this one as compelling watching as the others. It was very cute and fun though. 8 years ago
I wasn’t as drawn to this one as I was to the other movies so far. It was enjoyable to watch, but didn’t really leap out and grab me.
Eight movies down and only two to go though. 9 years ago
A very touching story. It highlights the other side of war. I don’t think I have ever seen a more emotionally moving piece of animation. 9 years ago
A really cool story, very different from the high-tech anime I usually watch.
Set during the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) of Japan, Mononoke Hime is a story about a mystic fight between the Animal Gods of the forest and humans.
On the side of the Animal Gods is San (Mononoke Hime), a human girl raised by the wolf god Moro. On the side of the humans is Lady Eboshi, building a kingdom for oppressed people by cutting down the forest for her iron-making operation.
In the middle of this fierce fighting for survival, Ashitaka, an Emishi boy, struggles to find a way for both sides to co-exist. But the fighting just becomes more and more bloody and all hope seems to be lost… ” 9 years ago
Wow! This one had me all the way to the end. Loved it :) Five down, five to go – the halfway mark. 9 years ago
Wierdest thing – I entered this goal into 43 Things yesterday. This evening I came home and switched the telly on, looking for a movie for us to watch tonight. There on World Movies, starting in exactly 1 minutes time, was Cowboy Bebop. Needless to say, I dropped everything and watched the whole thing.
Four down, six to go. 9 years ago
It’s a vampire theme, so of course I’ve seen this one ;-)
Great movie. I borrowed the DVD out and ended up watching it a few times in a row.
Three down, seven to go. 9 years ago
Have also seen Ninja Scroll a number of times, thanks to SBS!
