Sunday night, we watched Howl's Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki. It was so cool. Some of Miyazaki's other animations are: Spirited Away, Nausicaa, Princess Mononoke, and Castle in the Sky.
He is amazing.
And I know what you're thinking. Cartoons- Japanese animation--- NERD ALERT... but it's not true (the nerd alert is going off because of my pocket protector and retainer. totally unrelated.) Drop the label for a minute and be openminded. Miyazaki's work is stunning. And whimsical. And so full of life. He whisks you away into a world that is fueled by a boundless imagination. I sit there and watch it with the Short Ones and we share the same sense of awe and pleasure. It is a joy to behold. He is a master of his craft, and he tells stories about the best things in life. Bravery and peace and love and friendship-- his stories have wings. Love 'em.
Spirited Away is a great place to start if you've never seen anything from Studio Ghibli. Give it a try- you won't regret it.
