Seriously she's such a bitch. Hank should play Sam Kinison in a biopic though.

81. Bird People of China



Director: Takashi Miike
Year: 1998

A Japanese businessman is sent to a small Chinese village to search for a type of Jade. He finds himself travelling with a Yakuza member also after the Jade. The two drive each other crazy along the way, but when they reach the village, both men find themselves falling in love with the scenery and the lives of the villagers. Probably the most mellow film Miike has ever made (although it does contain traces of Miike madness) there's a tenderness to the film that you wouldn't usually associate with the director.

It's a lovely film - it would certainly make my list of the decade

That reminds me actually, when we start doing yearly lists again (if you still want to) how do you feel about taking a Beetlejuice approach and including non-film stuff as well?

I might not - it's quite time intensive just doing the films things for me. Although I guess if I think of something I could add it in (and I do already include TV movies anyway - a 1954 entry will be pretty obvious eg). I don't object if you want to, though.

80. Babe



Director: Chris Noonan
Year: 1995

This tale of a pig who wanted to be a sheep-dog was a surprise smash hit, not just commercially, but also critically, even going on to pick up Oscar nominations for best picture, director, etc. Given the competition that year, it probably should have won. Either way, it's one of the most truly magical family films of the last 30 years or so, giving us an adorable lead character and a strong supporting cast of farm yard animals. Even the humans impress, with James Cromwell deservingly getting an Oscar nomination for the taciturn but big-hearted Farmer Hoggett.

Of the films nominated Babe definitely should have won. (almost typed brought home the baconÖ)

Itís a beautifully crafted film both charming and amusing and about a billion times more effective than the one dimensional tosh that is Braveheart.

Have you seen the new Matthew Perry show? I think it's trying quite hard to be Community.

As much as I love Braveheart, babe should have swept the oscars that year.

OT a bit, but I notice that Babe recently appeared in a list of great sports films. I'd like to think that it was my vote alone that got it there

79. Princess Mononoke



Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Year: 1997

Mononoke is a fine example of why I consider Ghibli to be the greatest animated film studio in the world. It's a film I generally rate lower than the majority of other Ghibli films, second tier at best. Yet a second tier Ghibli is better than most other films in its decade. Another Miyazaki film that emphasises the importance of looking after the world around us, Mononoke focuses on the war between a small industrial town who are trying to tame the wild and the forest Gods who fight back against their destruction. This battle between man and nature isn't as simplistic as it might sound, instead taking the more complex path of making both sides equally sympathetic and infuriating. It also has the expected jaw-droppingly gorgeous Miyazaki animation, an incredibly important film for Ghibli, and probably the one that really brought them to the attention of a Western audience. And it still doesn't crack their top tier.

78. Once Upon a Time in China



Director: Tsui Hark
Year: 1991

The legendary Wong Fei-hung, folk hero, doctor, martial arts expert, has been tackled on screen numerous times in many films that have become classics of Chinese cinema. Here Jet Li takes on the role and gives the greatest performance of his career, bringing a gravity and dignity to the role that many may not associate with martial arts cinema. The performance shows how wasted he's been since the move to American cinema. Here Wong Fei-hung is made the leader of a local militia, following concerns about the increasing western presence in the area. He finds himself colliding with American kidnappers, corrupt officials and criminal gangs in his attempts to defend his town. OUATIC combines balletic action scenes with incredible cinematography and production design to create one of martial arts cinema's greatest achievements.

Some great choices. Mononoke is my second favourite Ghibli and OUATIC is one of Jet Li's finest. I think the sequel is slightly better, if only for the incredible fight between Li and Donnie Yen.

Bird People is another one of those poor dvds thats left shrink wrapped on a shelf for years unwatched. I'll probably check it out soon though because I want to rewatch most of my Miike collection sometime this year.

I'm not that keen on Mononoke. It looks gorgeous and those little woodland forest spirits who look like mushrooms are adorable, but it's one I don't return to - the plot bores me.

Beetlejuice!

Babe - Adorable little film though I always find it a bit odd that it picked up an Oscar nomination.

Princess Mononoke - The one that started it for me in terms of following in love with Ghibli, strangely enough I don't own this one on DVD so I haven't seen it that often but its one of their best I consider. The vocal dubbing is pretty excellent with the exception of Clare Danes whiney turn.

Once Upon a Time in China - Very good, but I haven't seen it in a long time. Jet Li at his best.

You definitely should check it out, it's possibly my favourite of his films.

77. The Nightmare Before Christmas



Director: Henry Selick
Year: 1993

In retrospect, Nightmare feels like it shouldn't work. Selick's work since has been pretty but empty, and Burton would start a career downturn that saw him move from interesting and genuinely eccentric films like Pee Wee's Big Adventure to the wananbe quirky crap he's churned out over the last fifteen years or so. On paper, Nightmare sounds like the kind of nonsense you expect from Burton - The King of Halloween land wants to take over Christmas, so he kidnaps Santa. Yet both Burton and Selick bring something to this film that's been absent in the majority of their films since: charm, and characters you actually care about.

What's your favourite Ghibli?



It used to be Spirited Away, but currently it's Howl's Moving Castle which is just wonderful. I did really enjoy Whisper of the Heart and Totoro too - Mononoke, for me, lacks something, I'm not sure what, that the others have.


I adore the Nightmare Before Christmas - great choice.

Princess Mononoke is good but not my favourite Ghibli, Iíve a soft spot for Porco Rosso.

Once Upon a Time in China and The Nightmare Before Christmas are both brilliant.
