A good movie

Nowadays, almost all the animated movies which come out are CGI. One of the few who's still holding strong is Hayao Miyazaki. This guy is the living proof that hand drawn animated features are still worth it and can be damned gorgeous to look at. Only just to 'see' this movie, it is definitely worth a look. You have here so many beautiful colors, awesome details and a marvelous combination of real... read more

Ponyo caught my attention ever since I heard it was going to be Miyazaki's next film and I like his films. Ponyo reminded me a lot of the Disney classic The Little Mermaid as I was watching it. It is a beautiful film for the family. It is a story on love, bravery and friendship which made it a personal film. Like all Miyazaki animated films, the audience are entering a different world. I mean, Pon... read more

Description: The plot is centered on a fish girl, or mermaid, who runs away from her home in the sea. She ends up stranded on the shore and is rescued by Sōsuke, a five year old boy who lives on a cliff. After taking a great liking to her, Sōsuke names her Ponyo and vows to protect her forever. Meanwhile, her father Fujimoto is looking for his daughter, upset that she ran away. He calls his wave demons to return Ponyo to him. Sōsuke is heartbroken by this, and goes home with his mother, Lisa, who tries to cheer him up, but to no avail. Ponyo and her father have a confrontation, where Ponyo refuses to let her father call her "Brünnh ... (more)

Films that I don't think are that great (12 movies items)

" 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. This is definitely Hayao Miyazaki-sensei's strangest work. While I think it's quite good, it's not on par with his other works. Being a Miyazaki film, the animation is stellar and one of a kind. The characters are very likeable and the story is a clever adaptation of The Little Mermaid. My problem with the film is that it was just uncomfortably strange. I did found some scenes to be quite bizarre and at times disturbing, especially when the island setting has been compl"

"29th of September, DVD Miyazakin tuotannosta on kaikki sanottava jo sanottu, eikä Ponyokaan tee kategoriassaan poikkeusta. Kyseessä on jälleen yksi ohjaajan suurimmista töistä. Ponyo on henkeäsalpaavan upeasti animoitu, mutta ennen kaikkea se vie sydämen mennessään tunnelmallaan ja kauniilla tarinallaan. Juonenrakenne on pohjimmiltaan Pieni merenneito uusine aineksineen, mutta kokonaisuudesta on vaikea olla pitämättä. "
