What is your favourite animated film, /tv/?
Princess Mononoke is the only correct answer
I've always been quite partial to Watership Down.
You'll need a higher cinematic IQ to enjoy these, imdbdrone
what is up with all the imdb hate on /tv/?
i just there to for the quick summary and the movie runtimes
I'mma watch that shit tonight. I can't remember the Princess' name, so I'm calling her Princess Caligula.
Pic related is my favorite.
Fantastic Mr Fox
Triplettes of Belleville
Scanner Darkly (if that counts)
That's just from the top of my mind
Song of the Sea
It used to be Secret of Kells, and then Song of the Sea came out. Beats the shit out of any Ghibli movie, and Ghibli is still masterworks.
The only problem with Song of the Sea is that the mom character makes no sense from a story perspective. She had a family with that poor man, knowing full well she would have to leave at some point. Unintentionally made her seem like a total cunt.

>“A movie is made for an audience and a film is made for both the audience and the filmmakers. I think that The Game is a movie and I think Fight Club‘s a film. I think that Fight Club is more than the sum of its parts, whereas Panic Room is the sum of its parts. I didn’t look at Panic Room and think: Wow, this is gonna set the world on fire. These are footnote movies, guilty pleasure movies. Thrillers. Woman-trapped-in-a-house movies. They’re not particularly important.” - David Fincher
>"My film is not a movie. My film is not about Vietnam. It is Vietnam. It's what it was really like. It was crazy. We were in the jungle, there were too many of us, we had access to too much money, too much equipment, and little by little we went insane." — Francis Ford Coppola
>By contrast, in the US "movie" is the predominant form. Although the words "film" and "movie" are sometimes used interchangeably, "film" is more often used when considering artistic, theoretical, or technical aspects, as studies in a university class and "movies" more often refers to entertainment or commercial aspects, as where to go for fun on a date. For example, a book titled "How to Read a Film" would be about the aesthetics or theory of film, while "Lets Go to the Movies" would be about the history of entertaining movies.
>movies are about economics.
>cinema is about esthetics.
>film is about politics.

Nice try nips, but the best animated movie is from Australia
Millennium Actress continues to blow my mind every single time I watch it. If I've been drinking before, I burst into tears every time as well.
End of Evangelion is the only correct answer.
Pretty much all Pixar and Dreamworks films are my favorites. I don't understand why people like Ghibli films so much tbh. Great animation, yes, butI never understand wtf is going on in their movies.
Howl's moving castle. Although I think it's the best Ghibli film up to date, I had many unanswered questions.
1. The scene when Howl meets Calcifer.
How the fuck does he know what to do with the shinny thing? Why is he swallowing it?
2. Howl suddenly goes insane. Literally what the fuck.
3. There's seemingly a war going on but against whom?
4. That scene right after Sophie and Howl escaped from Sullivan's place. 2 abstract 4 me
1. That is Howl's heart which he gives to Calcifer to stop him from dying
2. Howl transforms into a giant bird form to fight, but every transformation brings him closer to becoming a beast
3. Neighboring country's Crown Prince went missing and Sophie's country was suspected of foul play (Turnip Head is actually the Crown Prince under a curse until Sophie kisses him)
4. Can't recall that scene
Never mind the 4th question. It kinda overlaps with the second one. Here's the scene I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqtBPXSDSWg
Were all the answers in the movie, btw? Or did you get them from the book?
His over shirt doesn't have sleeves so together they cover his entire body. He can remove one or the other to expose different parts of his body if he gets injured or overly warm etc etc
The prince is an ambidextrous archer who can shoot while mounted meaning he can shoot around both sides of his steed without having to wheel.
The sleeves protect his arms from the lash of the bowstring.
Mah nignog. Favorite as well, along with pic related.
This. Also Fire and Ice, and The Land Before Time.
It's actually Spirited Away and Monsters Inc. but i think this one deserves a special mention
Finally. Seriously /tv/, watch it.
Hertzfeldt is the most interesting animator working today. His films are completely unique and unlike anything else produced in the East or the West.
Its not even close.
>that max vs millia fight
>that budweiser missile
>the endless stream of circuses
>that kaifun written out of the plot
>that final scene of minmay's fairwell concert where she regrets being a terrible human being and realizes she's going to die alone
From up on Poppy Hill was comfy as fuck
>nothing sad happens
specifically remember the grandma going through all the hassle of getting a cake baked on time to send to her grand daughter only for Kiki to find out that she couldn't give the slightest shit about it
ya'll can stop posting baby animations for 3 year olds now
this comment was directed especially at the people posting american animations
yeah i get why everybody says that, im not gonna argue about that, but i still liked it, the animation, the music, fight scenes, intrigue,
and overall plot but thats just my opinion
My Ghibli rankings
1. Princess Mononoke
4. Howls Moving Castle
Cause these are the only ones are gives you an adventure
1. Any Satoshi Kon films
2. Ghost in the Shell 1 and 2
Recent newer ones
1. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
2. Summer Wars
3. Madoka films
5. Sword of the Stranger
I found the plot a little too stuffed with the time travel mechanics and stipulations but watching Homura at the end become full-on possessive of Madoka for me beat out Sayaka succumbing to her depression as the most harrowing event, that was great. I was always cracking jokes about her feelings towards her back when the TV show was airing but to see that actually unfold caught me off-guard
Always been a big fan of Patlabor 1 & 2. Scenes like this
Are just great
I like when people use the fact that something is animated creatively, so basically anything by Satoshi Hon is a favorite.
His shit is so creative that western film directors rip him off all the time, but no matter how hard they try they can't do what he does vis a vis the changing of scenes, cutting, and use of his medium.
Too bad he died.
But Ashitaka's male.
One could speculate that Lady Eboshi has passively or actively driven away all able-bodied, intelligent males so that none of Iron Town's residents could challenge her authority; and so the only male residents of Iron Town apart from lepers are breeding / defensive drones.
I just watched mononoke on bluray last night, simply gorgeous.
I'm curious though, on the special features it showed clips of altered dialog, and I remember a few lines being different, did Disney bring back the actors for a redubbed for the bluray?
>No mention of Ninja Scroll
Movie has both beautiful and gruesome imagery, delivered in an understated way by the duality of the poisonous woman, Kagero
I found that tiresome too. In Porco Rosso it was still humorous (the part where they build Porco's plane), but it gets obnoxious in Mononoke.
I think it's a commonly held opinion that Howl is confusing.
Yeah they decided at the last minute that they didn't have a good enough sequel hook, so they crammed in a new ending that made no sense at all and had nothing to do with the rest of the movie.
I think Miyazaki said that about himself, but I can't remember if he was talking about just The Wind Rises or his movies in general. Other writers/directors at Ghibli don't necessarily have the same approach.
Odd choice, but it has always stood out with me. Especially Cloud.
Mamoru Oshii is good...
Opening fight of Sky Crawlers is really nice too, especially with those tense voices and heavy breathing.
Helicopter scene of Patlabor 2 is pretty GOAT too.
That's an arbitrary and subjective as fuck distinction
If you can't actually give a proper definition that doesn't differ from person to person, the terms are shit and completely fine to use interchangably
Well, I'll be damned. Some good taste in this thread.
Pic related might not be my number 1 favorite but it doesn't get enough love.
Christ guys. No wonder people hate on anime when all they watch is Miyazaki.
It's PB, Mononoke, Angels Egg, My Conquest is the Sea of Stars, and Patlabor 2 for me.
If had to choose one it would be the Brave Little Toaster.
Honorable mentions: Aladdin, Finding Nemo, Fire and Ice, Howl's Moving Castle, Mary & Max, Heavy Metal, Armitage, Tom & Jerry the Movie, Riding Bean, GitS, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
When she tries to pull off the hatch is unreal.
The level of skill, craftsmanship and pure talent when animating her body in that sequence trumps anything else I've seen in animation.
>Les triplettes de Belleville
>this too >>55377599
>Howl's Moving Castle
Can someone explain to me what "spirited away" means? Google translator will just give me the name of the movie.
>go into video store
>videos have been replaced by DVDs
>ask nice black dude if he has any videos he doesn't want
>hands me a shit ton of old anime 18+ rated
>first one I watch is Princess Mononoke
>second is Akira
Pokemon: The Movie
Oshii is a very good director. All his action scenes are very well done (he likes to keep them few and far between tough) and he always finds a way of making his montages relate meaningfully to the themes of the movie. He also likes to show visually symbolic cues and tie them repeatedly throughout the movie.
His only sins are his love for excessive wordy monologues and slow pace editing.
Just letting you know that Kara no Kyoukai was one of the first really successful light novels in the late 90s, back in the day when light novels mostly centered around lovecraftian horror in downtown areas, light philosophy, space operas etc. Unlike today in which 90% of the shit pumped out as light novels consist of wishfulfillment, harem, ecchi and "epic" fantasy garbage.
I'm going to assume you think Kino's Journey is also bad because it's based a novel made for otaku? Or Legend of the Galactic Heroes? Fucking pleb.
