I’m watching Spirited Away with my daughter and I asked her what she would do if I turned into a pig and she said, “I would have eaten all the food. I want to be a pig. Oink. Oink.”

We all watched spirited away for the first time, my 8 year old fucking loved it, I thought he might be freaked because jesus christ it's a freaky movie and a lot of blood at one point but he was entranced. He immediately asked if they made a sequel when it ended.

Wow I have never considered if I would show a potential child of mine spirited away, on the one hand it’s a perfect piece of art, but on the other it scared the absolute shit out of me as a kid

It's a very very excellent kids movie, chihiro is an extremely relatable antagonist and the whole story about being brave in strange situations is really resonant for someone in the older kid/preteen age range. But yeah it's definitely freaky and intense.

I watched it with her for the first time when she was 2. We watch it all the time. She was never scared of it till recently and now is always upset till after the first Yubaba scene.

No face doesn’t scare her and is her favorite character for some reason. She likes to do an impression of him when he can’t talk and puts his hand out.

She just think Yubaba is mean.

The paper figures fucking up hakku in the air and blasting into chihiros room was one of the most thrilling scenes I've ever seen in a movie I was not ready for that

my daughter is 6 and i first showed her my neighbor totoro when she was 3. she very much liked it. sometime later i showed her spirited away a little after that - she was maybe a little scared while watching the first time, but liked it by the end. i was talking about this with another mom at our mutual friend's kid's birthday party and she highly recommended princess mononoke to me. when i realized it was on hbo max, i threw that on (without reading any reviews or age guidelines!) and my daughter was really scared by it! turns out it's a pg-13er. really fucked that one up. thanks, friend-of-a-friend-mom.

Just finished The Wind Rises. The first ten minutes was just stunning and then it basically kept that up the whole way through. So many pleasing and tactile sounds, right from the start with the very early Disney cartoon engine of his first dream plane, and all the times the film lets long stretches go by with minimal or no music. The sequence of Naoko going off to die fading into Jiro's dream plane soaringToggle Spoiler was devastating. The dream sequences with Caproni just built so well through the entire film, it was like the ascension into heaven scene from Porco Rosso spread out over two hours, with a similar sense of wonder and loss. Feel like I saw Porco Rosso in a cockpit for a split second in this one actually.

What the fuck, Jiro's voice was Hideaki Anno??!!!???Toggle Spoiler

The experience of being visually and emotionally overwhelmed over an over by Miyazaki this summer will stay with me for a long time. Thinking now about how he's made perfect movies about childhood (Totoro, Ponyo), adolescence/coming of age (Kiki, Spirited Away) young adulthood (Mononoke), adulthood (Wind Rises), and middle age (Porco Rosso).

wow if you're sleeping on Pom Poko absolutely check it out. May not be ideal for kids as it has a buncha raccoon deathsToggle Spoiler but on the other hand it has tons of raccoon ballsack actionToggle Spoilerwhich I know I would have loved as a young person.

I knew about the Tanuki ballsack power concept going into this and that was part of why I wanted to watch but its narrative significance exceeded my wildest dreams.

i finally am watching these

i watched Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke and I think I'm going to do Porco Rosso now. Didn't get spirited away that much, i liked mononoke more but disappointed to hear it's rather un-ghibli.

grave of the fireflies has been on the radar for a long time and i think i'll get to that after porco

My kid was way more terrified of the toy story movies than any ghibli.
