Drawing/colour it looks like Howl's. Gameplay looks slightly Pokemony?

Does look that way - wasn't aware of this at first, but it's a remake of a Nintendo DS game but with major reworking involving Ghibli.  In the DS original, spells and whatnot were done by drawing pictures on the touchscreen that were supplied in an accompanying book.  Not sure how that's going to translate on the PS3, but I suspect that gameplay will be secondary to the wandering about in any case

Wish they'd do a Porco Rosso game - that'd be mega.

Odd, given that Miyazaki has for years opposed videogame tie-ins of his studio's work.

No-one's seen the last 2 yet (although very very much want to!).

I'd say Only Yesterday is the star of this bunch.

Is it one of those non-fantastical Ghibli efforts? I'm not a big fan of those as they seem to defeat the point of animation.

I think you and I may fundamentally disagree on what the 'point' of animation might be (just another means of telling a story for me - the story doesn't need to be narratively or visually of a particular type) so that's a difficult question to answer!

It's great isn't it? I have the blu-ray and it looks smashing. Saw it in the cinema too, which was quite surprising as I wasn't expecting it to play at my local chav hole. It's no Totoro, but I don't think any film will better that. My favourite animated film.

My fav. part was when she first becomes a real girl and the ocean is exploding and there's all this madness going on on-screen. The imagination of the animators has no bounds, where do they think of this stuff? It puts any CGI effort pixar is churning out to shame imo. I like to have a bit of a change sometimes and watch something innocent like this film.

That's gotta be the stand out scene for me too. That and the very first shots of all the sea creatures. Magnificent stuff!

Studio Ghibli could close? - 24/8/2010 9:00:12 PM

What the shit?  Miyazaki claims that Studio Ghibli could close if Arietty the Borrower doesn't do the business in the States...

http://www.geekosystem.com/studio-ghibli-closing/

quote:

Suzuki-san is making a dissolution program for Ghibli. No joke, we talked about it the other day. For example, Ghibli should be able to continue with about five staff members as a copyright management company even if we smash the studio. So, Ghibli can say 'We stop film production. Goodbye'. I do not have to be there.


It's not all doom & gloom though...

quote:

f Arietty does do well, however, Miyazaki confessed that he has a certain Porco Rosso sequel in mind, set in the Spanish Civil War, but that that particular film won't be made unless Ghibli can make successes of Arietty and two more films.


Oh god yes pleasepleasepleaseplease - more "I'd rather be a Pig than a Fascist"-ing in Franco's back garden?  It'd be rude not to

I'd seen the sequel part elsewhere, but not the risk to the studio. That's not very good.

Many Happy Returns

I've forgotten what it was like when videos could take years to come out after films. Months later and still no sign of an Arietty DVD.

I recommend all the other studio ghibli films I have which are:

Howl's Moving Castle
My Neighbour Totoro
The Cat Returns
Castle in the Sky
The Castle of Cagliostro
Princess Mononoke
Only Yesterday

Still to pick up a few more myself, but hope to have the rest of the collection soon.





Sorry if this is late but why do people keep refering to films done buy Miyazaki that are not Ghibli films as though they are, the Only excepting to the rule is the Film that helped found Studio Ghibli.

I don't think people are quite so fussed by 'rules' as you are.

And I think it's probably not entirely unconnected to the fact the UK release is in identical packaging style to the Ghibli collection.

Well, if you're excepting Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (which seems fair as Ghibli themselves kind of refer to it as a Ghibli movie now, and it's very much in keeping with all the other Miyazaki films made afterwards) that only leaves us with Castle of Cagliostro, which you'd be right to say is not a Studio Ghibli film at all. I'm not sure it really matters too much as long as people are watching them.

No. It was 5 on ebay with free postage from East Asia.

Wife says they only took 5 days to arrive.

Seller was called bonbonshop18.

Bumping as I finished watching Only Yesterday last night - what a lovely piece of filmmaking. The ending was a moment of unexpected brilliance.

Anyone seen The Borrower Arrietty yet? I watched this Sunday, it's a more a low key effort than the more recent Ghibli films. I started out thinking it was going to be a real treat but the film slowed to a snails pace and the inner workings within the house stopped.

The best part was the first 30 minutes with Arrietty's first borrowing. The journey through the woodwork and seeing all the small details making up the place was very good, it's just a shame that it didn't have the pace to keep it up.

Really? I was hoping for something better than that after watching a few of the classics recently like Mononoke and Nausicaa.

They are also 5 sound quality, so not worth actually using outside the novelty.

I've seen it a couple of times now. I loved it. I felt there was more to it the second time. I would agree the film changes slightly after the introductory bit, but personally I didn't think it was worse, just different, and I could happily watched loads more of it.

I've seen Arrietty, and it's the best new film I've seen this year. An absolute masterpiece, I'd rank it as one of Ghibli's best.
