I liked Howel's Moving Castle, but then I'm s sucker for fairy tales.

Princess Mononoke brings back memories. Not so much of the movie itself but the trip to the movies.
It was published by Disney here and Disney got the bad habit to "want" no age limits on their animations. So they got no age limit on Princess Mononoke... I don't know who got bribed there but oh boy was that a nice show for me.
The movie was only shown in the afternoon show and only in very few theaters due to the low popularity after all. Anyway I was sitting there with a friend and all the parents with their little kids were like: "What are these creeps doing in a kids movie?"
Then the movie started and after some time we were almost alone in the theater.
I guess a boy riding a deer dismembering other people isn't as kids friendly as they though.

Why the heck is Nausicaa not on the list?

Laputa is definitely my favorite on the films. I need to go back and watch some of them again. It's been almost 10 years since I last saw Princess Mononoke.

Because it's technically not a Studio Ghibli film. It was produced by the predecessor of Studio Ghilbi: Topcraft, right before it was bought out and renamed Studio Ghibli.

I guess the same goes for Castle of Cagliostro. (Sensational, that one. Everyone should see it.)

The Wind Rises is a fictionalized biography of a very talented Japanese designer. You will get to see what made the man that designed some of the best aircraft Japan used in WWII.

Whatever else might be said about the film, it is apparently so fictionalized as to have practically nothing to do with whatever "made the man".

Also, for $deity's sake, LEARN HOW TO ENGLISH, Mr. Dievendorf! If you like I will personally take two minutes every day to correct your abysmal sentence structure in whatever you happen to be spewing. For free.

No Nausicaa or Porco Rosso, i am disappoint.
