Managed to watch the film (thank god) ending made me cry inside. Soooo excited, porco rosso? Yyyyyes!! Loving this studio ghibli season (only just now realise it was on... What have I missed so far... (rhetoricle question) Lotr is epic but I won't kick myself if I miss it, kikis delivery service is.... Meh, battle royale is ok but I'll probably pass, I mean I've watched it twice or so and Im satisfied. Princess mononoke.... Oh yes, definitely watching all on my favourite (and most watched) channell... God I love British television...
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Tony, this is one Of my most favourite films in the world, and holds special significance for be because watching it, or at least parts of it, is one of my very first, if not the very first memory I can remember! I must have been only 4, and it was on TV in my grans house, must have been 1988 or thereabouts! Anyway, for years all I could remember was the robots in it, and parts of them actually being on the castle in the sky, and the robot swarms shooting out of the holes and flying., But never knew what the film was. Then, I saw it advertised on TV that it was being brought to DVD, this must have been 2003 / 2004, and I'll never forget the joyous feeling of finally realising that was the film I saw in my grans house all those years ago! Saw the trailer and the robots, and Finaly knew that was the film!! Joy of Joy's!
A Nod is the same as a wink to a blind horse . . .
Not dead quite yet plus some team that makes the Ghibli films are creating projects of their own like The girl who leaped through time and Summer Wars also if you like hunting for obscure films try Like the Clouds, Like the Wind it's in the same style and is sort of known as the lost Ghibli film
