Had no idea that studio became Ghibli and. Yeah. I kind of see it now.

I love finding out how different parts of the industry build and feed into each other, like half the animators who worked on the Tiny Toons Movie were key animators for Akira. (And I mean it makes sense if you track TMS Entertainment , but if you don't how often Japan is animating American cartoons it sounds kinda crazy)

For Mighty Max, no Tony Jay, no sequel. That's also why we can never get a proper conclusion to ReBoot.

Holy poo poo, I haven't thought about Soul Reaver for probably a decade. Of course that was Tony Jay.

Advent Children is dumb, and every piece of FFVII media that came out after the original made the plot worse with unnecessary retcons and bad writing. Also it didn't have enough Red XIII, who is the best.

So, apparently Pendleton Ward has been working on something called The Midnight Gospel, and it looks like... something all right

My place isn't great for watching movies. My options are watching them on the 13 year old LCD TV that only hooks up to my Nintendo Switch, watching it on my busted computer monitor, or watching it on my phone.
(There's a big television in my house, but I have several housemates and they have children so that's usually in use for Disney movies or Fortnite or Minecraft or something and they use motion smoothing.)

I like the actual movie experience of being in the dark, there's no chihuahuas or excitable toddlers, I have a hot dog or maybe some popcorn and we're all here to have a good time.

Anarcats also needs to somehow integrate Gay Purr-ee, because I refuse to be the only person I know who's seen it.

I had no idea that existed and it looks delightful, but please tell me in advance how gay is it?

Tragically, it's the archaic meaning of 'gay'. It's more of a 'weird' move than a 'good' movie, but they wrangled Judy Garland for the lead role and I'm very fond of the art.

To my fellow Canadians, Netflix is finally getting the entire Studio Ghibli filmography (barring Grave of the Fireflies and The Wind Rises) on Thursday and anyway I thought that was worth sharing. Now you have no excuse to not see Porco Rosso.

Both Fantasias are excellent but only one of them has the Rhapsody in Blue sequence and that about seals the deal for me.

Oogie Boogie is a bunch of insects who came together to form a band and they kidnapped Santa to be the audience to their first single.

Edit: I rewatched Howl's Moving Castle for the first time since 2004 and it turns out that I really like Howl's Moving Castle and I just... forgot or something. It has the misfortune of coming directly after Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, literally my favourite movies, but it's still really pretty and I adore the characters. I think I'm going to give the book a shot next.

I know Princess Mononoke was the longest animated film for a long time, it was 2 hours and 14 minutes. But then the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya beat its record at an absurd 2 hours 44 minutes and nothing else has even come close since then.

Probably not. Who Framed Roger Rabbit was an insane gamble, it only happened because Disney Animation in the 80's was desperate and kinda crazy. Don Bluth quit halfway through The Fox and The Hound and took half of the animators with him, The Black Cauldron tanked so hard it almost brought Disney down with it, and The Great Mouse Detective made a modest profit but got its rear end kicked by An American Tail. Eisner and Katzenberg basically decided to go all in on the most expensive animated movie of all time, and either revive Disney Animation or sink it for good.

I think from there they get Steven Spielberg as executive producer, he brings in Robert Zameckis who just did Back to the Future and won't be scared off by poo poo like "we have to film the live actions parts first and then animate everything later and it'll take a year and we haven't invented digital compositing yet because it's the 80s", and Zameckis says "I know a guy" and that guy is Richard Williams, animation warlock. And they set him up with a 50 million animation budget and temporary custody of Disney Animation UK.

And then there's the poo poo where Disney is like "hey to save money you should use these very simple camera angles and don't do anything crazy with the lighting" and Zameckis goes "anyway for this scene we hit the ceiling lamp so all of the light and shadows go back and forth, and then we hit it again so they rotate"

And anyway, I don't think Disney will every try something as insane as Roger Rabbit ever again, and also Richard Williams is no longer around so I don't even know who else would carry the legacy of a perfectionist animation warlock.

I don't know if any of this is, like, relevant to the discussion but I listened to a podcast about Who Framed Roger Rabbit like two days ago so that's where all that came from.

It's the Blank Check podcast, they did the Robert Zameckis miniseries back in September. Actually, they did Hayao Miyazaki's movies last year, and just wrapped up John Musker and Ron Clemens, so there's probably something worth a listen in there too.

My one problem with Shrek 2 is that Dragon is barely in it, and when Donkey gets turned into a fancy horse, Dragon could have become a bigger, cooler dragon. But she has to stay offscreen because she's nesting.

I remember in one of the season 2 commentaries that there was a small turtle-lion cameo, and the writers regretted not introducing them earlier. Also, maybe energy bending feels like a cop-out but "a twelve year old pacifist has to learn to murder" is definitely a lovely ending. Also every other part of the ending slaps. The airship fight, the final Agni Kai, that soundtrack, everything.

Your opinion on movie theaters probably also depends on your home TV setup too. I live with four people and a chihuahua, and Canadian WiFi doesn't always play nice with streaming. When it works out its pretty nice but somedays the kid decides that It's Scream Time Now or someone else is playing Fortnite and hogging the bandwidth.
