The Netflix (UK) Thread

The bit where the dinosaur says "Alan!" is one of my favourite moments in film.

For bonus hilarity isn't that the first time we see the new look velociraptors with the feathers on the top of their head? Don't get me wrong the others have silly moments (the gymnastics routine for example) but straight away taking a creature you've built up over the last two films and giving it a hilarious WTF moment like that can't have helped.

This is as good an excuse as any to finally get around to watching Princess Kaguya.

 

By which I mean I will rewatch Porco Rosso roughly twelve more times.

Good spot; I hadn't noticed that.

I can only imagine 5-year-olds stumbling across that one on Netflix and thinking they're in for a fun adventure like the others.

it seems to be a rights issue - publishing rights belong to the publisher of the original short story. I already own it on DVD, so no great loss personally, but a shame it's not the full set.

I've watched Ponyo, Spirited Away and Porco Rosso, so will happily check out as many of the others as possible. (have also seen Grave of the Fireflies).

Watch the ones I said they’re the best films.

Infact watch most of them. Watch all of them. Watch nothing but them. Become an anime.

Castle in the Sky is another excellent one that no one has yet mentioned.

And Totoro. Not sure how I forgot that.

The film adaptation of Ni No Kuni has been added to Netflix, for anyone looking for something Ghibli-adjacent before the real stuff drops - based on a game developed with Studio Ghibli, scored by long-time Ghibli musical collaborator Joe Hisaishi, directed by Ghibli animation lifer Yoshiyuki Momose, and written by Akihiro Hino, the writer behind the Ni No Kuni games, as well as Professor Layton and Yo-Kai Watch.

The trailer looks fucking awful, but I'll give it a shot.
