What's your favorite Ghibli film?

I think mine is Princess Mononoke. It's really hard to choose.
>>
>>119688446
Arrietty

Only because it hit so fucking close to home it wasn't even funny.

I had a Heart condition since birth and I had to go through 3 surgeries when I was 11.

>>119688951
I was gonna say Arrietty for a runner-up actually. But for very different reasons probably. I just found everything about it beautiful.

Kiki's Delivery Service was my favorite movie for a time as a kid. But as I've grown, I've come to like Laputa, Porco Rosso and Whisper of the Heart the most.

Despite this, all Ghibli films are still great to amazing.

According to you.

Adventure romp Miyazaki > "mature", serious, "message" Miyazaki

Although Kiki is superb as well
>>
>>119696363
>>119696352

Miyazaki wrote, produced and oversaw the development of Whisper of the Heart. He was in the process of grooming Yoshifumi Kondo as his replacement. Until he died....

By all accounts though, Miyazaki had just as much or more to do with Whisper of the Heart than anyone else.
>>
>>119696623
>By all accounts
You're gonna have to source that with something other than credits.
>>
>>119696623
its based off of a manga not even created by miya.
>>
>>119696722

This is always such a dumb argument. You're the one who claimed Miyazaki had little involvement. Why don't you try proving your point if you're so certain its right?
>>
>>119696890
I said it's not really appropriate to consider Whisper "a Miyazaki" because he was not the director.
>>
>>119696875

>its based off of a manga not even created by miya.

And Kiki, Howl's and Ponyo are based on books Miyazaki didn't write. You gonna claim they're not Miyazaki movies now?

>grasping at straws: the Ghibli thread
>>
>>119694214
so fucking itchy holy shit
>>
>>119696923

The director isn't the only one who works on a movie. You know that right? Robin Hood, The Rescuers, Sword in the Stone and many other Disney films weren't directed by Don Bluth. Yet he's clearly the biggest influence on the films.
>>
>>119696928
Those were all animated through miya's direction, whisper wasn't miya only wrote the screenplay for whisper.
>>
>>119685857
Most boring Miyazaki movie.
>>
>>119696975
>Yet he's clearly the biggest influence on the films
I'm sure that's well documented. I'm just asking for a well documented source that Miyazaki was the major driving force behind Whisper. It certainly doesn't feel very much like him outside of the dialogue.

Best Ghibli

>>119688446

Watched the butchered 80s dub "Warriors of the Wind" when I was a kid, but even then, the beauty and artistry of it showed through to me.
>>
>>119696996

>miya only wrote the screenplay for whisper.

But that's wrong. He did a lot more fro mthat movie. From coming up with the main idea to make the movie to the original screenplay to storyboards, etc. He also came up with the whole 'Country Road' theme, saying he wanted to make a movie that pointed out the detachment of the world with city living.

Even if you want to ignore all this, Miyazaki writing the story still makes him plenty tied to it.

Totoro is worse, but definitely they're two of the weakest Ghiblis.

Read up about the film.

By the way, I just read on one of those links that Miyazaki actually directed the fantasy parts of Whisper of the Heart. So yet another thing he did for the movie.

Totoro is slow but good, it has an interesting theme about how children cope with death and is pretty emotional. Kiki was slow, boring and just typical coming-of-age stuff.
>>
>>119697399

Ghibli dubs stand out from the rest because Disney localizes them. I don't think they've made a single bad dub for a Ghibli film.
>>
>>119697399
fucking nice
>>
>>119697473

Disney dubs stand out only for using Hollywood actors. And even then, many of the voices aren't the best. You know somethings wrong when actual talented voice actors like Mark Hamill or Phil Hartman don't sound as good as they do in other animated works.

But there's many more problems with the dubs beyond just how the voices sound. They changed a ton of the dialogue. Far more than was necessary even translating it into English. The dubs for Mononokehime and Spirited Away change so much dialogue, its painful to watch....

Japanese Mononoke: "I understand."
English Mononoke: "I was resolved the moment I let my arrow fly."

Holy shit guys, that's not even CLOSE to what he said....
>>
>>119697406

Kiki is also a story about accepting life as it comes. Even more than Totoro was. It also had three other sub plots going on.

You can go on hating Kiki if you want. But at least understand what the movie was about.
>>
>>119697856
Also hating Kiki is not allowed.
>>
>>119697856
Yeah, I understand it was a generic coming-of-age movie. The entire main plot of losing/regaining her powers to fly had absolutely nothing to do with "accepting life as it comes".
>>
>>119698417

>Yeah, I understand it was a generic coming-of-age movie.

You obviously didn't. Because that's not the point of the movie. The point was about accepting yourself for who you are. Kiki spent most of the movie trying to go against who she was. And that's why she lost her connection to her powers.

Kiki is also a pretty big Tsun bitch when you think about it. Especially towards Jiji and Tombo. throwing all her frustration onto them. It just comes back on her when she loses her powers and starts to get ignored back.

Yeah, overcoming her insecurities to become a stronger and more independent person. textbook coming-of-age.
>>
>>119697406
>I can no longer enjoy things !!
>>
>>119698953

>Yeah, overcoming her insecurities to become a stronger and more independent person.

Still nothing to do with Kiki.
>>
>>119699126
The movie definitely isn't about a girl separating from her parents for the first time and struggling with self-doubts about being independent, I must have imagined it all.
