Is this the best anime movie of all time?
Where the fuck are you even getting this shit from? It's good but that's it.
no, but it is pretty damn good.
Beautiful to look at, with a great cast and you could sympathise with their struggles.
The character development was hammered home pretty hard though. Felt pretty obvious.
Also the underlying themes explored weren't particularly interesting.
On the whole though, a great family film. Even has a decent english dub. I'd rate it alongside Miyazaki's better films.
It's not even Mamoru Hosoda's best work.
>"aldnoah zero surpassed it"
No it isn't.
If you want some good post-war Japanese history just read Barefoot Gen.
GotF is, long story short, a film about respecting your elders.
It's an insult to the war casualties.
I've only seen about 7, why does everything have to be a subculture? Does everyone have to be a "hardcore" anime fan to call his favorite film the best in the world?
Now that OP's question is settled.
Are these the best anime movies of all time?
It's a great movie but far from being my favorite.
Just looked at all the movies i got, hard to say really. I want to say End of Evangelion is the best one, but if we are talking stand-alone movies...i tend to think Millennium Actress is my no. 1.
But as i said, picking 1 is impossible..there's also Perfect Blue, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Redline, The girl who leaped through time, The tale of Princess Kaguya..oh and last one i saw, Giovanni's Island - damn, cried my eyes out. And not just teary eyes - i had to fucking wash my face.
But yeah, Wolf Children is high up there. The only thing that bothers me about this movie was the wolf-woman sex scene, i don't see it's point - they could've keep him human for that scene, doesn't mean that he didnt have wolf DNA or something. It just made the movie awkward, imo
Sword of the Stranger is pretty good
i like how whenever there's a movie or anime that contains sad moments, /a/ pulls the "forced drama" card. Like, what kind of person are you that you actively watch anime and then are so afraid to say that a show was really touching, or made you feel sad, or cry. How insecure can one be about these feelings, that he is afraid to type them on an anonymous image board. I've seen this at Anohana, Clannad, 5 cm per second, Angel Beats and now this.
I get it - not all of those shows are "great" but am i the only one who felt something while watching them ? I know that after watching tons of anime, you kinda become immune to the feeltrain but still.
And if this is bait, go fuck yourself.
>father literally dies in the most hamfisted manner to milk as much drama in the cheapest way possible
>son happens to be an autistic fuck with no proper way to communicate with others
The Girl who leapt through time was completely fucking shit after the mid portion.
>girl tries to change the future even though she can't because causality and chaos theory will always fuck up someone, running away will not solve your problem
>LOL THE ROCK HAS A USE LIMIT
>AND YOUR BEST FRIEND IS FROM THE FUTURE!!!
I'm still eternally mad as fuck because this movie was going somewhere and fucked itself for no reason.
no it isn´t
>Best movies of all time thread
Christ how new is it in here.
Not the best but as other anons said, I would put it up in the family tier and Ghibli tier.
You know what I love about an anime movie? When they really show that upping that budget was worth it, like pic related, the K-on movie and Disappearance.
forgot the picture.
Sometimes a movie is not exactly the best format in my opinion, I am glad Persona 3 is being done in movie format and multiple ones too, it incarnates both
The budget and giving it the right time to let the story unfold, althought a 26 episodes series would have worked wonders and maybe even better too I think. I hate how small the anime industry is.
I think this thread is lacking something important....
>That's when it becomes brilliant in it's own right
That's when they throw animation budget at nonsense. You don't watch Akira's end for anything but the glorified demo reel that it is.
It's one of these two
>inb4 baby's first anime
>inb4 anime was a mistake
I have a Monononoke poster, it's great.
I too have a poster of my favourite anime film in my room
Because all Miyazaki movies end with a fart, at some point near the end he just drops the ball and isn't interested in picking it back up. It just happens much sooner in Chihiro than in Mononoke, the last 20 minutes or so are a snorefest while Mononoke only has the 5 last minutes being boring.
Yea. I was foolish, and didn't want to pay the extra $4 for it to be shipped rolled. Probably one of my more regrettable life decisions.
I know everyone else seems to think it's mediocre, but I thought Patema Inverted was an incredibly enjoyable movie. Something about it just made it really pleasant and fun to watch.
how the hell is the wolf children child birth propaganda? Hana has to drop out of college and become a hardworking farmer in order to have time to deal with those fucking kids. The reason Japan's birth rate is so low is because the nips value a good job over children.
I don't know about best movie of all time, but 5CM certainly had the best directing of all movies I've seen. And I really liked the art
i fucking love this movie. They do incredible stuff with the concept of reserve gravity and the cinematography is amazing. The shit-tier villain stops this movie from being a masterpiece though. Also patema could've been developed more
I really liked 5cm per sec but a lot of it is nothing happening.
It helps the story but it put off a lot of people because of it.
If it wasn't for the montage bringing everything together, it wouldn't have worked as well.
And the ending music theme kills me every time.
Mononoke had an odd ending, it had a climax alright, but the very end felt "mild", the duo seems to go "so I stay in the forest and you do your thing, we cool right? Right."
Also it has the biggest case of accidentaly blasphemyous curses for my language than a compilation of all the times "Torna A Surriento" was sang.
For how much people like Mononoke I thought it was technically good but had a lot of issues with the plot, especially the talking animals bullshit that seemed tacked on as a lazy way to convey information in a couple of scenes, and the way the "curse" was resolved incidentally and didn't really do anything. Lots of things happened but it didn't feel fulfilling by the end.
Laputa is the best Miyazaki. Yamadas and Ponpoko are criminally underrated.
It's my personal favorite but it's mainly because of the really subtle audio changes in the scenes and the "cinematography"
Also nobody posted yet the video by every frame a painting. Casuls all of you
Scenery porn ≠ directing. When will you faggots learn this? The best directed anime movie is probably My Neighbor Totoro. Seriously that film is an amazing piece of art.
I would also say it's generally the best to answer >>122697262s question. Wolf Children is a nice movie though. Good plot, good characters, generally comfy to watch.
Damn you anon, I was in the middle of fapping and thinking about Tarkovsky, Up and Wolf Children again has made me shed quite some tear, damn you.
Nice video thought thanks, jerky jerk.
I think Makoto need to let someone else take the story, whatever he draws is fucking fantastic. But I feel like his stories fail to deliver or to end, kinda like Ito. I enjoy his drawing, the monsters, the plot in general, the MC dont even make me mad with their stupidity which is one of the main reason I dont watch horror movies, but the endings.
At a certain point it becomes boring, it feels like he didnt know what to do and act as if he can just put the end on the story like is nothing.
You see this, this, I would lose my left arm or a leg to be able to do it by myself but the only reason I would watch it again is to gaze at its majestic pictures like an art gallery.
I watch anime for the plot and it seems to have very little substance.
That seems kinda dumb, he admits that he doesn't know how to use a lateral tracking shot but he still states that the use in Wolf Children is great and he doesn't even give any real arguments for it. "This isn't a literal shot, it's figurative... And moves back and forth through time and space" Wow, the director used spatial movement as a metaphor for temporal movement! I bet no one would have gotten that by himself, totally imaginative flash of genius by the director!
I don't want to claim the scene is bad, in contrast I think it's good, but that guys just doesn't seem to understand why: It establishes important character development in a short time without losing the kind of "dreamy", calm atmosphere of the whole film and the slow continous movement, in contrast to instantaneous movement like a cut, makes the viewer better aware of the slow continiuos changes in the characters as opposed to sudden ones do to certain events. For example if a cut were used here the viewer might get the idea that Ame getting pushed is meant as a specific event that (among others) triggered his later development. The tracking shot makes it 100% obvious that this is not the case, but that development as a whole is depicted.
If you think this you are pleb, and not in the meme sense of the word.
Try again. You just can't accept that your favourite film is utterly mediocre.
