This time up, our recommendation comes from Kim from klling.wordpress.com She’s recommended “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Winds”, joining in the effort to further my Hayao Miyazaki education! I’m more than happy to check it out, since “Howl’s Moving Castle” was really awesome.
Howdy folks. It’s been a little while since I first came up with this idea and had the inaugural post in the series (I posted the first, based on Le0pard13′s recommendation of “Rob Roy” three months ago, LOL), but I’m turning my attention back to it now, and I’m going to try to make it a more regular part of the blog here…
The Reader Recommendation series is intended to help me formally pursue all the great films that commenters bring up each week in discussion that I’ve never seen. If there’s a movie that comes up that I haven’t seen, but you think I should, just get in touch with me @ firstname.lastname@example.org or let me know in the comments that you’d like to participate.
This time out, Janderoo92 helps me enter the great wide world of Japanimation with “Howl’s Moving Castle”. The film was written and directed by the famed Hayao Miyazaki and animated by Studio Ghibli. I’ve been anime and Japanimation averse, so far in my film watching life, so I’ll freely admit, this is the first Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki film I’ve ever seen. Jan has chosen this for our starting point, so let’s see how it turns out! Click through to see our thoughts on this film!
