Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a Hayao Miyazaki film with poison forests and giant insects and lots of people flying. The anime style is lovely, and the story moves along quickly. There's a lot to this film, so pay attention if you decide to watch it. Not sure why, but I didn't think it was as good at Howl's Moving Castle or Spirited Away. It was along the lines of Princess Mononoke in feel, and I really liked it.

Judging by the Patrick Stewart tag I'm guessing you watched the new dub? With Alison Lohman also, I think?

I saw this a few years ago and really liked it. It's not up there with Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke for me, but I still thought it was very good.

Howl's Moving Castle didn't really grab me when I saw it for some reason. I need to watch it again, give it another chance. The other Miyazaki flick I'm particularly fond of is The Castle Of Cagliostro, which is as close as Miyazaki gets to vacuous, enjoyable entertainment. There are two english dubs out there though, and the more recent version with David Hayter performing the voice of Lupin is far superior in my opinion.

Yeah, it was the dub. How could I say no with voice actors like that? It's strange, but since I've been watching a lot of anime on Hulu, it's almost all subbed, so I wasn't expecting English voices. XD

I loved Howl's. I was entranced from the beginning. I haven't seen the Lupin movie. I never really got into it when it was on and I'd almost forgotten about it. Maybe it'll be another series to check out.

I am glad you liked. It does sound interesting though :)
Thanks for sharing more about it ;)
