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.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: April (24 movies items)

"First viewing - April 13th I picked this up to watch with the kiddo over the weekend, and it's safe to say we were both underwhelmed. She didn't think it was exciting enough, though there were some moments she enjoyed. I felt like it's more geared toward adults than kids, and so while I appreciated it more than she did I didn't think it was anything outstanding. I'm glad I've finally seen it since I'd been curious about it for a while, but I doubt I'll watch it again."

A Complete Review of Hayao Miyazaki's work (14 movies items)

" What was it about? In 1930s Italy, a veteran World War I pilot is cursed to look like an anthropomorphic pig. My two cents: Unfortunately, I didn't care much for this movie which remains, as far as I'm concerned, one of the weakest movies delivered by Miyazaki. I mean, as usual with this director , the animation was just top-notch, filled with some very neat details and the action scenes were pretty much breathtaking but even though the story was gentle and sweet like many other Ghibl"

" I would say that Porco Rosso is a lot more 'mature' than many of the other Studio Ghibli films, but it still comes with all the heart and emotion that you've come to expect Hayao Miyazaki's films. It's also thrillingly exciting and wonderfully subtle in its themes. It's a treat."

Movie Reviews (801-850) (50 movies items)

" The usual high quality animation that come from Studio Ghibli could have worked as an "old-fashioned" Hollywood studio film from the 1940s and it is almost sad that they didn't go 100% realism on the story and made the leading character a real person instead of a pig-man. The ending is a little underwhelming to me as it seem to be a poetic afterthought made because the director didn't know how to properly end it. The female characters are also boring this time which is very unusual for Ghibli. "
