  • Yet another 10 for Miyazaki
    January 29, 2007
    Im a Big fan of Miyazaki... This movie is Definitely in his top 3...
    Princess Mononoke's story is very in depth and it grabs your attention. Time after time. You may have to watch it a couple times to catch everything but you will fall in love with the characters and story every time you sit down to watch it
    As for the art... Its Visually stunning yet again. Everything is depicted so well in Miyazaki's artwork from the humans to the Forest gods and everything in between
    this definitely worth watching.
    And if you like it you should definitely check out some of his others like Castle In The Sky, Howls Moving Castle and Spirited Away
