    This was a very beautiful film. Cover a lot of themes dealing with how violence can overtake you and that people and nature should coexist. It’s also a more brutul then Spirited Away. I really enjoyed it.

    This was a good review. This is my second favorite studio ghibli film. Lady Eboshi is my favorite character in the movie. My favorite scene is when her troops take on the bigger samurai army and just blast the hell out of them with their cannons.

    Mononoke is my favorite of Miyazaki, although to me Spirited away is like the other side of the medal, because Mononoke is the macroscopic view while Spirited away is the microscopic view.
    Mononoke focuses on nature vs human, on Gaia vs mankind, while Spirited away focuses on human identity, on adolescence, on the process of becoming a princess mononoke/Ashitaka/Lady Eboshi.
    In a certain way these movies complete each other.

    My boo gives such a compelling, pristine details about the movies. She explains in a versatile manner. All I can say is this; she has helped me a lot, and I’ll never be able to thank her enough. Just like she’s giving you all decorum perspective on movies; she’s giving me perspective to hold on to myself, lending my hand while I walk on a wire to that safe place. I love you boo, you are my strength.

    There is quite a bit of Japanese mythology in this movie. I feel like I can’t grasp the depth that he is going into with this movie.

    Now, more than ever, we need such things as movies and movie reviews to provide us with quality albeit temporary relief from the grotesque Trump ordeal we must suffer. Anything anyone can do to chip in. I’ve been considering starting my own site to critique episodes of NAKED AND AFRAID.

    Have you seen any Satoshi Kon films? He’s my favourite animated film director.

    This was a very good review. Personally I think that Miyazaki was harking back to Kaze no tani no naushika (1983). Both have female protagonists that seem to be elevated to a higher plane and being very much in contact with nature and both movies have issues with the way society is treating nature.

    Did you watch all these Japanese animated movies you have reviewed recently with English dub voices or with the original Japanese audio and English subtitles? Sometimes I find the two to be quite different experiences. Also, sometimes there are more than one dub made for a film, such as Akira, My Neighbor Totoro, etc. Qualities of the dubs vary, naturally, while some prefer not having to read subtitles.

    Studio Ghibli (Miyazaki), CoMix (Shenkai), Madhouse (Satoshi Kon) house big names in japanese animated features. You may wanna check Satoshi Kon’s works the japanese version of Hitchcock in animated films. "Perfect blue" inspired "Black Swan" or Paprika inspired Nolan with "Inception". Each japanese animation studios have their own artistic styles.

    This is a great and overlooked film. I also love how you cover such diverse types of films, from the hyped-up blockbusters to art house, to anime. What you do on your channel is a rarity on Youtube.

    I have huge respect for Miyazaki, but I feel his movies greatly vary in quality, all the way from masterpieces (Princess Mononoke & My Neighbor Totoro) to pretty bad (Howl’s Moving Castle).

    I love mononoke more than spirited away, but I think it’s for nostalgia reasons. It was the first studio ghibli and miazaki film I had ever scene. It blew my mind. Still love spirited away, but mononoke has so much heart and vision it speaks to me.
