I can see an valid argument to be made regarding Poppy Hill (even if I disagree), but Earthsea doesn't belong in a "Top 20 list" of Studio Ghibli's films, let alone Top 10.
Forget The Evil Dead; what George Lucas has done to Star Wars since 1997 is truly "The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror".

Well, it's one of my youngest daughter's favorite Ghibli movies as well, so you can take up the issue with her...

She loves the dragons and gets a kick out of the "girly-man" evil sorcerer...

If you're talking about the BD, yeah I would expect that. The DVD looks underwhelming even by its own standards.

On BD, maybe due to high data rate.

Which edition are you referring to? I believe other versions were messed up, but the US one fixed the issues, and received praise in reviews. I thought it looked great back then too, though it's been many years since I've seen it.

The Video

The whole "red tint" issue with the Japanese DVD release of Spirited Away is pretty well documented, but the basic gist of it is that when the Region 2 disc hit Japan people noticed a heavy amount of red tint in the picture. It was so bad, a group of people actually sued Buena Vista Japan to get the problem fixed. With the US release, the red tint issue has been taken care of. The result is a rich and colorful film that matches what I saw on a DLP screen just a few short months ago.


In fact, I'd even say that some of the colors look better on this DVD, such as the flowers in a hedge that Chihiro runs through or the rich reds and golds that can be seen in the bathhouse throughout the film. The warmth of the transfer really shines through about halfway through the movie in the scene where Chihiro helps clean the stink spirit. This is such a lush transfer that it was sad to actually find any fault with it, but it's not completely perfect.

The only real flaw I noticed in this otherwise beautiful 2.0:1 anamorphic transfer is a very tiny amount of compression, such as some minor mosquito noise, that can be seen in some short moments in the film. The one scene that's most noticeable is late in the film where Chihiro is riding on the dragon and we can see a little bit of noise in the close up of her, mostly around her fingers and the beast's flowing hair. It isn't as bad as the compression in Beauty and the Beast, but it's enough to keep the transfer from earning a higher score.

Figured I should share this. I received an email from Amazon stating that Princess Mononoke comes out on October 14th. Here's a picture:

Hmm it would be interesting if they moved the date up. I hope it isn't true and it still is a November date.

When I go on Amazon's website, it still shows up as November 18th for me as well. I would not mind at all if this is true, the sooner the better!

Still coming to terms that Miyazaki will never make another movie again. It's selfish but I really hope he can't switch off the artist inside who is just compelled to make movies.

Got my copy of the Nausicaa hardcover Graphic Novel box set in the mail today from Rightstuf - unfortunately the shipping box was pretty beat-up in shipping, and the nice, collectible Nausicaa set arrived with a crushed corner, even with the good cardboard-frame packaging RS uses - and the spine of the one hardcover book was also crushed. I already got an RMA# and dropped it off at the post office to get a replacement sent, but it will take another 2 weeks or more for the round trip... It already was on backorder for a month after I ordered it, so I've been waiting for it all this time, and now this.



I swear, I never seem to have very good luck with getting Studio Ghibli stuff shipped to me without some sort of damage...

That collection is notorious for coming dinged up, there just doesnt seem to be a way to ship it properly. Luckily mine came in great condition from Amazon, which I consider nothing short of a miracle.

its probably not right stuf's fault. its more likely the book company that shipped the book to them in the first place.

I am always amazed as how horribly packaged books come from different book distributors.

I was thinking the same thing - it was packaged well, so I don't think the corner was damaged while shipping from RS to me - I think it was already damaged and Rightstuf packed it in the box that way...

Old news, but the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences will be presenting a Honorary Oscar to Hayao Miyazaki in November.
