Both are simply (but cleverly) illustrated stories of the struggles of a girl in middle school, […]

Or even meeting amazing names without any line, and having real conversations. Some shows still provide that experience — I’ve had similar recently at Heroes (Charlotte) or Baltimore — but that’s not the same market any more.

At the risk of sounding like I’m 90, I remember when I was a teenager you could go to a con for a flat entrance fee of 15 or 20 bucks and get signatures, etc. for any guest whose line you were willing to stand in.

When I saw it, I was just beginning to study film academically. I enjoyed it so much more than I had the earlier films for that reason. I can still picture a set of beautifully animated toys that only featured in a single scene.

The guy who was Damage worked at DC at the time, I think.

Comment on Justice League: Throne of Atlantis by James Scheehttp://comicsworthreading.com/2015/02/01/justice-league-throne-of-atlantis-2/comment-page-1/#comment-169955 Thu, 26 Feb 2015 03:00:54 +0000 http://comicsworthreading.com/?p=37644#comment-169955 I suppose so, though I guess at least I guess that there was’t rampant amounts of sex/nudity on screen is an improvment over the prior movies? lol

I can take death, destruction etc. if there’s a logic to it. But when it makes absolutely no sense if you think for 2 seconds. I just wonder who these movies are for.

Its a shame too, of the two new JL movies I really like Green Lantern and Flash as portrayed in them. Yet they aren’t given much time at all here except to punch something, which is a waste.

I wanted to like Mera & Arthur as well as New 52 comic of them was great under Johns and has a neat story idea currently under Jeff Parker.But they were terrible in this movie, even though I like Aquaman’s voice actor’s work as Anakin in the SW Clone Wars series.

I think the animation division is taking its cues from the successful video game lines in the death and destruction.

Orm goes through the trouble of having this huge tidal wave about to wipe out Metropolis, then makes it go away because he’d rather kill all the surface dwellers individually for some reason.

Black Manta orchestrated it all so that after the surface world is sunk he can kill Orm and take Atlantis’s treasure. For what? Where’s he going to keep it and what is he going to do with it if there is no surface world?

Superman can effortlessly whip a leviathon and send an send a mountain down upon it. But can’t knock out a guy whose only twice or three times as strong as a normal human? (same with Wonder Woman)

Plus no one on the Justice League bats an eye at killing thousands of soldiers, between Batman’s bombs, Superman’s heat vision, Diana and Meras slicing them in half. The body count just seemed so high. Just so strange to me….

Especially when it was revealed that the soldiers had been duped and changed course when it was revealed. Wow…

While Princess Mononoke was my first Miyazaki/Ghibli film, it was Spirited Away that really made me appreciate his attention to detail and his care in mixing elements of the ‘real’ world with the fantastic. I think that was the film that really got me to go back through the Studio Ghibli catalog up to that point – and I’m glad I did. :-)

Comment on Win a Copy of The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness by Kikihttp://comicsworthreading.com/2015/02/22/win-a-copy-of-the-kingdom-of-dreams-and-madness/comment-page-1/#comment-169784 Mon, 23 Feb 2015 23:38:36 +0000 http://comicsworthreading.com/?p=37896#comment-169784 With a handle like Kiki, Kiki’s Delivery Service should be my favorite – and I do love it; just like I love all the Ghibli movies I’ve seen – but I’m going to go with MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO. It’s my comfort movie. The one I can go to and get lost in watching a snail climb up a flower stalk or two sisters hurrying home in the rain under a leaky umbrella or watching a cat bus pull up to the bus stop. I think I’ve just talked myself into a rewatch. :)

P.S. My second choice would be Panda, Go Panda even though it’s not technically a Ghibli film. It’s definitely a precursor to Totoro, with an additional frantic energy and optimism that just pulls you in.

Each of the Studio Ghibli films are a beautiful and magical experience, but I’ve always loved Kiki’s Delivery Service. It so perfectly captures the frustration and confusion of “artist’s block” (what artist can’t relate to that?), and encourages you to keep going, not to mention the gorgeous animation and simple charming story of a young witch away from home for the first time!
