Imagine yourself living in a house while some things disappear like a sugar cube that you wouldn’t care for. However you would never know that they are tiny like people who lives on the ground of your house borrowing simple things to survive while living in an very small house full of things they borrowed. That is what today’s topic will be in. The movie is based on the novel “The Borrowers... read more

Yet again Studio Ghibli only manages to impress me by what it looks like, not the story.

Before watching this I obviously read what it's about, as I could tell straight away it was clearly aimed at children, so I knew it wasn't going to be anything too deep. But what didn't get my expectations so high was the fact that it wasn't directed by Miyazaki, which was kind of a huge let dow... read more

Superb Animation movie with a very powerful story and magical animation. I watched the movie in Japanese with English subtitles and really enjoyed it.

It is the story of the Clock family, who are four-inch-tall people living anonymously in another family's residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. That’s why they are called BORROWERS. Life changes for the Clocks when the... read more

But what didn't get my expectations so high was the fact that it wasn't directed by Miyazaki, which was kind of a huge let down, but as I've followed the whole of Studio Ghiblis releases I wasn't going to miss this.

After, I was no way blown away, but, I still found it enjoyable, the amount of cruel/harsh films I've seen it's certainly nice to take a break and just watch a nice sweet happy film like this. It wasn't bad or anything, just it's aimed way to much at kids so most adults or older children wont get what th” read more

"@ Blu-ray Visually gorgeous, delightfully free of tacked on humor, bizarrely weird, filled with depth and at times strikingly beautiful. This is a film that does many things right and reminds us of why we love Studio Ghibli. It's a very cute film. Yet, it's altered by some issues that keeps it from being among Studio Ghibli's greatest films. The first and foremost is the pacing. At times it feels incredibly slow, which shouldn't be necessary in a film in this genre. There is also the fact that"

" Nov 26nd, owned Super cute, as in many Ghibli films I was amazed at the beauty and whimsy. Not quite as magical as Spirited Away or Totoro, but still heartwarming and enchanting. It feels a lot like a tiny little piece of the borrower's story. "

" Written but not directed by Hayao Miyazaki, The Secret World of Arriety has much of the same look, feel, and tone of Miyazaki's collection of work so it should play mostly well toward his fans. However it is a bit lacking in the darker elements found throughout many Studio Ghibli films -a fact which I personally consider rather unfortunate. Also the music choices are a bit weak, disruptive, or just too sugary and obvious at times. This is fine when a approaching the movie as a "kid's film" but"
