Hello, thanks for visiting J Bugoru~
I thought it was about time I did a post that wasn't a video sub as that's kinda all I seem to do these days.
Even so, I couldn't really think of something I could bother to write about that wasn't music related, like usual. Well it's not like I thought very hard about it and there's probably lot's of people who've done this before but oh well.
So here it is. My top five favourite Ghibli films.
The main reason that I chose to do this was because I've seen all of them (apart from the most recent one)
so I can give an accurate decision, based on my preferences. It most probably won't be the same 80% of you reading this but I'm sure that you'll understand that it's just my opinion.
Well it's safe to say that all Ghibli films are amazingly beautiful and/or have excellent stories so they're mostly all deserve to be in the top five but obviously I'll enjoy watching some more than others. Oh and I'm assuming that you'd have watched them too so won't really be writing a short synopsis or anything hehe.
5. Grave of the Fireflies
This really should be at least one place higher, but it goes in 5th place. Why? Because it's soooo saaaad!!!
No other Ghibli film makes me think or feel various emotions as much as this one, but it almost brings me to tears and doesn't really leave me feeling good after watching it. Well it shouldn't really, since it's about the mercilessness of war. I remember that I could barely watch this when I was a little kid (like five and under or something) because of some of the gross scenes (rotting people). I didn't really understand what it was about very much back then. It was only later on in life that I realised just how serious and heartbreaking this story is. It makes me grateful for being born in this time period where I'm not deprived of anything and surviving is super easy. Hopefully the world doesn't become like that again. An interesting thing I heard about this movie was that the director decided to model the big brother on the modern teenage boy rather than what they may have been like back then so that the modern audience could relate to him more.
4. Laputa Castle in the Sky
Haha....anyway so Laputa just has one of those themes that I really love and find enchanting. It also has great characters, and one of the best bad guys ever in Muska. You really end up hating this guy. He's also inadvertently funny, at least to me, and a lot of his lines have become staple jokes among my siblings and I. Well....I didn't really discuss much about the film here but oh well.
Ahhh and I can't be bothered writing anymore at the moment. I'll post 3~1 in the coming days yo~
