Lately I've been on a Studio Ghibli movie bend. Their films are absolutely stunning and magical and I have become so deeply inspired and entranced by their films! Initially I was not all that impressed with "Ponyo", the first Ghibli film I watched. I thought it was too random and all over the place, it was as if it was too far fetched. But then I watched "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Spirited Away" and I realized that there was something very simple that separated these animated films from others: that in fact were far fetched and that's what makes them so wonderful. Once I got over that hurdle, I watched "Ponyo" again and it was simply magical.
So what is your favourite Ghibli film? After watching all English dubbed versions, my favourites would have have to be "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Howl's Moving Castle".
