My Neighbor Totoro tonight. It was...weird. Kids liked it. Kiki is next on the list!
Thankfully library has a bunch of these movies but they're the Disney versions. Oh well, good enough for noobs.
Married with two kids and a dog.
Thanks everyone! I've had such a great experience with my daughter. We went and saw Howl's Moving Castle in the theatre for Ghiblifest. She and I both loved it.
Then we were able to get the Secret World of Arrietty from the library to watch at home. Good, not as good as Howl but good to watch with my younger son as well.
EZA is a fantastic community and I can't thank you enough for your recommendations!
PS next step is getting her to get off the Dubs and onto Subs!
Howl's Moving Castle is Miyazaki's worst movie, but it's not bad.
Well it's the first one I can take my daughter to in the theatre. I'd rather some of the others but they're so hard or expensive to get, this is a good option.
Gkids has the blu rays now, and IMO they look and sound better than the Disney releases. I think they scanned them from restored original negatives in many cases.
Awesome movies, but man they don't come cheap and no VOD options.
Hey! My kids are 9 & 6 and getting into anime and manga (the 9 year old). I'd like to show them some Miyazaki movies. There are a few I have in mind but having a tough time finding a way to watch them. Do you all have any suggestions?
I was only into Dragonball at their age but I'd love to help them experience some of these great films.
I'm thinking Ponyo, Totoro, Marnie, and Spirited Away. Any suggestions would be great. L&R
@el-shmiablo Ugh! That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for your feedback!
