      Grave of the Fireflies (a very sad movie though)

        The only Studio Ghibli film I didn't like was Grave of the Fireflies. That movie was horrible -- there was nothing happy about it and it kept getting worse and worse (and made me cry).

          ...I think that was the point.

          Kiki's delivery service is my favourite Ghibli film, not sure why though I just find it charming (and Jiji sounds alot like Squidward in the dub )

            I loved Princess Mononoke. This story was sweet. Spirited Away and Howls Moving Castle were alright I guess but definitely on the wierd side. I have not seen any of his other films as of yet.

              Princess Mononoke is one of the best animated movies I've ever seen. The film looks astounding, not just from a technical standpoint, but the art direction and some of the sights and scenes are amazing to behold. The characters are wonderfully fleshed out, and the story itself is extremely well written, with a lot of complexity and moral gray area. I like that this is an environmental film that dares to -not- take the easy way out and say "Earth good, industrialization bad". Instead, it actually takes the middle ground and shows how complicated the issue can be. Yes it's good to preserve nature, but at what cost to humanity's growth?

              I did also like Kiki's Delivery Service, Totoro, Spirited Away, and Castle of Cagliostro, though PM remains my favorite.

                I wholeheartedly agree. Everything Miyazaki did here made this one of the best films of all-time. Among Dreamworks films, it is still highly regarded among people who aren't even into anime.

                Speaking of which, another anime series called Earth Girl Arjuna tries to convey what Princess Mononoke tried to do about the environment and the Earth feeling the pain of what man has done to the world. If you enjoyed this film, I would totally recommend Arjuna!!

                  Well you can count me as one. I find the movies of Kon Satoshi & Oshii Mamoru far superior . . . .

                    Yes it does but the guy who voice acts jiji died (dub) towards the end of the film which is why at the end it says RIP Paul (i have forgotten the name) but further in the credits i realised it was jiji

                    But i very much appreciate studio ghibli

                            Except that Arjuna was extremely heavy-handed in it's message. It's a series that comes out and says "It's wrong of humans to do anything at all to improve agricultural yields" without stopping for a moment to consider how many people alive right now have to die for that to be a sustainable food system. There's also the necessary drop in cultural development by putting relatively so much more of humanity's resources into producing far fewer necessities, and while you can make a case for that still being the right option, the first thing that has to go in that world is CGI-filled television animation, so it felt a little weird having the show trying to cram that message down the viewers' throats.

                            I don't think there's been any other anime I was so excited about initially which later completely killed my desire to watch it. Mononoke's message of "yeah, the situation sucks and any course of action will have some tragic consequences, but we can't go 100% either way."

                              That's the appeal of Mononoke though - it's like Miyazaki shows us the gravity of the problem and then tells us that he doesn't have the answer. The film ends in some sort of impasse, where the conflict is merely suspended, not resolved. It's interesting that Ashitaka is freed from his curse, so presumably he no longer has the magical power to mutilate people. Perhaps this means that he too can no longer have a "sacred" relationship with the forest, where he literally feels the pain and anger of its anthropomorphized animals. That's over. He is more detached, and must find another path.
