Classic ghibli film

While this is a great representation of a studio ghibli film, I will not lie and say it is my favorite. Personally, that honor is reserved for Howl's Moving Castle with a close runner-up being held up by Porco Russo. I will admit that I am not in any way in the know about the Tales of Earthesea books or other versions of the franchise. The movie states with an introduction that leads to the titles and then to the start of the story. There is little information given and it seems that there could be an entire movie between this and the story itself. After this, as is usual with ghibli we are immersed in a complex world and a story that has much more below the surface. The story progresses and we learn of the battle of those who live and those who fear death. The story culminates with the classic battle of good vs. evil/ This is the first go of the younger Goro Miyazaki in directing a studio Ghibli film, and I think he has done his studio and namesake proud.

This a great movie to see. The characters seem so real. The music of the movie really sucks you into the story.

Best Movie Ever!

This movie was one of the best I have ever seen! It makes me want to read the books! This movie shows you a relationship between light and darkness (good and bad) and life. I have seen Miyazaki's films for a while now, and this has to be one of the best! No, THE BEST!!! Come to think of it, I like all of his movies (the ones I have seen). This movie had everything I liked. Please see it!
