This is definitely a film aimed at an older audience I think. It's probably not as easy to pick up as Howl's or Spirited Away for younger viewers. The story tells of Porco Rosso, an archetypal fly-boy who protects the mediterranean from bungling sky pirates. Widely regarded as a hero, Porco lives alone in his island retreat until a brash young american top-gun turns up and calls him out to fight. ... read more

It's funny how renowned directors like Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg are extremely well-known for their works and still some of their finest, critically acclaimed works go unnoticed by audiences and the die-hard fans. In Scorsese's case, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore could be a perfect example and in case of Spielberg it's The Color Purple. And in case of Hayao Miyazaki's, it's Porco Ross... read more

Good, but not the best from Studio Ghibli

I am a long standing Studio Ghibli fan and have enjoyed every film so far, but of them all this is the one I enjoyed the least.

I found it a struggle to watch and at times even found myself bored. I found the pace to be wanting and also felt it to be a very masculine film overall, but this maybe the very reason I did not enjoy it has much has others from Hayao Miyazaki's work which ... read more

In Italy in the 1930s, sky pirates in biplanes terrorize wealthy cruise ships as they sail the Adriatic Sea. The only pilot brave enough to stop the scourge is the mysterious Porco Rosso, a former World War I flying ace who was somehow turned into a pig during the war. As he prepares to battle the pirate crew's American ace, Porco Rosso enlists the help of spunky girl mechanic Fio Piccolo and his longtime friend Madame Gina.

"First watched 8/1/2016 I'm a sucker for Miyazaki movies and this isn't one I grew up with so I didn't know what I was going to think of it but I loved it! It is certainly different from most Miyazaki works because our main character is a middle aged man (er pig) instead of the usual young main character heroines that Miyazaki has in his films. This is a much more grounded story as well because it seems to be set in a fictional setting that is the closest to the real world that being pre-Worl"

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: March (43 movies items)

"March 27 "A pig that doesn't fly is just a pig." This is honestly the best Studio Ghibli movie I have seen so far. The other two I've seen were Ponyo which was pretty good, but nothing spectacular and Spirited Away had very creative visuals and ideas, but I wasn't too emotionally invested in the characters or the story. This movie on the other hand had a very compelling story with great characters, fun flying scenes with beautiful visuals and I especially loved the main character Porco Rosso"
