So other day I finally watched this old animated film called “
I HAD to watch this. I watched it when I was really young and had some snippets of it in my head but never knew what it was called, all remember was this crazy steam world with a little boy and girl who were being chased. Not much to go on I know But through researching animation on a previous project I came across Castle in the Sky and I thought “that has to be it” So finally, I've watched it the other day. Its an amazing animation for its time. The hint of the meaning of the film is not as faint as Sprited away or even Princess Menanoke. It reflects on the new world crave for power technology and knowledge and neglect of home values and of earth. Well sort of any way. The Castle in she sky was once a great city, but developed harnessed all this great technology and appeared to pay the price for the greed of power and a its inhabitants are dead. It’s a really good movie, you never quite guess what’s going to happen next (except for the whole boy meets girl thing). It’s a really wonderful animation especially for its time. I put all animation against Studo Ghibli standards and that’s probably why I can only stand such a few animes. Nowadays anime lack meaning, are really lazily put together, extremely badly dubbed at times, and the story just suck or are very similar to others. The story was really deep though A Classic Example of great animation. Hayao Miyazaki is such a don and I admire his work so much.
Hayao Miyazaki born January 5, 1941 is a prominent Japanese filmmaker of many popular animated feature films. He is also a co-founder of Studio Ghibli, an animation studio and production company. He remained largely unknown to the West, until Miramax released his 1997 Princess Mononoke. By that time, his films had already enjoyed both commercial and critical success in
This is Studio Ghibli Collection (Trailer). The clip is in another language but you still can appreciate the art
So if you haven’t watched his stuff all ready make sure you do it!
