Rachel West Asked #FilmTwitter About Emotional Animated Movie Moments And Things Got Really Sad
Studio Ghibli's first international coproduction is a beautiful accomplishment, we interviewed The Red Turtle's director Michaël Dudok De Wit on the challenges of this completely dialogue-free film.
The first international coproduction from legendary Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli, The Red Turtle is beautiful at times, yet frustratingly enigmatic at others.
The Red Turtle TIFF 2016 Review
Disney has been rolling out Studio Ghibli titles in pairs on HD Blu-ray for a while now, but we finally got Miyazaki's masterpiece Spirited Away, which is cause for celebration, and The Cat Returns ain't bad either.
A look at the two latest Studio Ghibli films that Disney has brought to blu ray: Porco Rosso and Tales From Earthsea.
The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness TIFF Docs It’s not often that we as the viewing public get an outside glimpse into a dream factory. The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, while a bit dry at times, is a unique look inside one of the premiere animation houses on the planet. To the general public […]
While time will only tell if Hayao Miyazaki’s latest film, the World War II era period piece The Wind Rises, will be the animation auteur’s final feature, if it turns out to be true he’s certainly ending his career on a high note.
We talk to TIFF Bell Lightbox Head of Film Programming (and massive dork at heart) Jesse Wente about round 2 of the Lightbox's now comprehensive look at the films of Studio Ghibli. We also talk about what the films mean to him, the iconography behind My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies, hidden gems in the program people might not be aware of, how the films of Studio Ghibli encompass the very goals the TIFF Bell Lightbox strives towards as an organization, and why he’s honoured to be a part of this showcase of films by not only a great filmmaker, but one of the greatest artists the world has ever known.
With the return of TIFF's retrospective of the works of Studio Ghibli returning to the Lightbox starting this Thursday (and running to January 3rd), lets look back at our Beginner's Guide to the works of possibly the best animation studio operating today.
It's somewhat disappointing to report that From Up on Poppy Hill is a pretty looking, but boring and gutless romance, more akin to hundreds of other sappier anime tales of lusting than the touch of magic the wizards at Studio Ghibli are renowned for.
A busy week for big titles on video store shelves as we take a look at The Grey, The Secret World of Arrietty, The Woman in Black, This Means War, and Red Tails.
Enter to win a copy of Studio Ghibli's The Secret World of Arrietty on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack from Dork Shelf and Walt Disney Home Entertainment!
Even dubbed into English, it’s hard to go wrong with almost any film bearing the Studio Ghibli name on it. Similarly, the much beloved children’s novel The Borrowers – written by the late Mary Norton with no fewer than four big and small screen adaptations – stands as an enduring brand in family entertainment. While only written by Ghibli head maestro Hayao Miyazaki and only somewhat faithful to Norton’s beloved source material, The Secret World of Arrietty still manages to be another solid, but slight effort from the Japanese powerhouse.
