    Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro are my all-time favourites but I love all the Studio Ghibil movies (I think I haven't watched 1 or 2 but I'm sure I watched most of the films).

    I love their originality, the music, the way the shots and transitions are presented(soz for being a media freak) and the how the characters are forever entrenched in your hearts whereby when you finish the film you cry because you don't want it to ever end. I feel like I'm more in a magical world when I watch Studio Ghibil movies as opposed to Disney movies(they are amazing but I love Studio Ghibil films way more).

    What are your favourite films guys?

    That's an absurd statement to make, just as "you can't really claim to like animation without having looked at René Laloux" is.

    I like Ghibli, but it's hardly the be all and end all (5 Centimetres Per Second, and The Place Promised In Our Early Days: both outstanding animated films, neither had anything to do with Ghibli).

    You see my point?

    Its an important part in the pantheon of animation. If you havent seen any then youve missed out.

    I've seen/have most of them, and I wouldn't consider any of them bad by a long stretch, but it really annoys me when people put them on a pedestal when there are arguably films that are as good, if not better (taste is subjective after all), than Ghibli films out there.

    As far as animation in general is concerned, how do you compare a film to a series? It's near impossible due to them being two separate products of media, so the only evidence that someone can give as for why one medium is better than the other is personal preference, which isn't really evidence at all.

    Ergo, "you can't really like animation without looking at Ghibli" is a flawed statement to make.

    It's a shame that Ghibli is so expensive... HMV usually have them in there, but £14 for a DVD? Don't think so.
