My journal will be about movies that I've seen, but also Japanese Anime that I love--Hayao Miyazaki's works, of course, fall into both categories. This man is a genius--his works have sumptuous animation, engaging stories, beautiful music, and a whole lot more. I shall be reviewing each of his movies one by one for my first entries.
The interesting thing about his works is that they've proven so popular in Japan that America's animation giant, Disney, has taken it upon themselves to translate and release his movies here in America. I understand that some folks have trouble with the Disney-Ghibli merge (and/or the dubs they've done), but I beg to differ. The deal has introduced these movies to a wide audience, and the actors chosen to lend their vocals to the dubs help attract newcomers who would otherwise avoid foreign movies, much less animation. Of course, these dubs aren't the "perfect, accurate" versions that hardcore fans want them to be, but they've all gotten the seal of approval from Miyazaki and Ghibli, and for good reason--any one of the dubs is a pleasure to listen to.
Stay tuned for updates on this gifted man and his masterpieces produced at his animation facility, Studio Ghibli.
