any one seen ponyo?

i just watched it yesterday, it was a very beautifully animated but i thought the story was somewhat lacking.
i think it was one of miyazaki weaker films.

i still think howls moving castle was one of the best family films ever.

overall i like ponyo i just thought the main story was overly simplistic sort like
a simple bed time story but maybe that was the feel they were going for.

just wondering about all your thoughts on this movie.

Curses, I still need to watch that. I heard it was decent, but I did not hear anything special about it.

I also thought Howl's Moving Castle was one of his best, along with Spirited Away and Princess Monoke (that movie gave me nightmares ;oWink.

I own Princess Monoke and I liked it a lot. I've also seen Howl's Moving Castle and liked that as well. I haven't seen Ponyo or Spirited Away, but they are diffiently on my list of anime to see.

I remember seeing Princess Monoke at a friend's house. Friggin epic, I loved the spirit of nature or whatever it was called. And that guy's arrow shooting DAMN! xD

Spirited away was beautifully done, I loved No face and Haku. The ending made me sorta sad and hoping for a sequal. But that's just me lol. xP

I want to see Ponyo and Howl's moving castle badly. Xx

I saw Spirited Away first. It is strange that it won a Best Animated prize while Princess Monoke didn't. I personally though Monoke deserved a Best Picture prize more. All the bloody, demon worm, action detail(and consider the length of that movie) was amazing!

spirited away had disney distributing/dubbing it so that's pretty much why it won.
princess monoke was distributed by miramax, they dont have the kind of push disney does especially when it comes to animated films.

I watched Ponyo, thought it was ok, but didn't care for it much. My favorites are Howl and Spirited Away.

I also was not that much impressed with Ponyo. it's good but not great.

My favorite is Howl's Moving Castle although that is almost tied with Nausica and with princess mononoke.

Totoro is also really good.

the one about raccoons, which I don't know the name of, that one was interesting but I've only been able to watch it once because my family hated it. LOL.

castle in the sky is also really good. I like the pirates in that one.
