Five Movies I Make Everyone Watch at Least Once
5. Spirited Away
I’m kind of a Miyazaki fangirl. This was my first movie of his I watched, and I stumbled on it by complete accident. Best accident ever. Miyazaki is such an amazing story teller. His characters are so real, and there is no such thing as a “good” person and a “bad” person. Everyone has a little bit of both.
David Bowie in leather pants. Need I really say more? Honestly though, this movie is so corny and 80s, but I absolutely love it. I totally ship Jareth/Sarah.
3. The Swan Princess
You may remember me mentioning my intense love of love-hate relationships? This is one of my favourite one’s out there. Plus, around the same time I watched this movie I had an intense wish to be blonde (one of the reasons Venus was my original favourite Sailor Scout…or maybe I wanted to be blonde because of her?), and Odette was a goddess to me. I still sing “Far Longer than Forever” and pretend I’m her sometimes…
2. Howl’s Moving Castle
Remember my whole “Miyazaki is a god” thing. Here’s another one of his movies that I adore. The characters in this movie crack me up, and I am so in love with Howl I can’t even. And the backgrounds! And the themes! *swoons* (The books are pretty awesome too!)
1. Star Trek
There’s a reason this is the first movie I ever reviewed on this this blog. I don’t generally rewatch movies, but I’ve seen Star Trek several times and every time I do I find it entertaining. I’m dying waiting for the sequel, and any time a friend comes over it’s one of the first things I ask if they’ve seen.
