    It's not only a shame if you've never seen one of Hayao Miyazaki's films. It's a crime.

    Even his earlier films are treasures. Just freaking unbelievably good.

    The Castle of Cagliostro
    Castle in the Sky
    My Neighbor Totoro
    Kiki's Delivery Service
    Princess Mononoke
    2001 Spirited Away
    Howl's Moving Castle
    The Wind Rises

    I liked it, but it wasn't as magical as his other ones. Still after finishing the film, I walked out of the movie with this inexplicable feeling of happiness, even though my film major brain was being critical.

    tl;dr watching a miyazaki film has a distinct happiness buzz to it

    My five favorites:

    Howl's Moving Castle
    Spirited Away
    Princess Mononoke
    Porco Rosso
    My Neighbor Totoro


    They're all amazing, of course.

    Miyazaki is definitely my favorite director. No one else has made so many movies I love.

    Never got his films. I mean, they're good, the plot is involving. I just don't take away a very strong message; esp. that Disney feeling most people are talking about. The characters don't really develop that much. And I'm not a big fan of the character designs.
