going through Miyazaki chronologically.
Start with the Nausicaä comic then (it's amazing)
And then hope he tops it at some point (he doesn't)

Best: Totoro and Kiki are locks, toss up for the third entry ... maybe Mononoke?  Worst are Howl and Nausicaa.  I like Ponyo a whole bunch - lotta people act like it's only a notch above Howl, I think they're unhappy people and deserve our sympathy and encouragement.  Don't quite get the love for Spirited Away.  I liked it a lot but it's commonplace for it to be people's absolute favourite - don't understand that.

Nausicaa movie was hard to watch after reading the comic - and I thought the comic was just ok.

ponyo was anticlimactic

howl was anticlimactic

totoro was really good but not in my top 3

WHY MY TOP 3 ARE WHAT THEY ARE

1. spirited away had such amazing visual design and really memorable characters. no-face left a huge impression on my 10 year old self. the world of the bathhouse was wonderful and weird and very, very surreal.
2. kiki's delivery service is such a cute little film. the characters are genuine and likeable and not in a saccharine way.
3. watching ashitaka literally rip off heads with the force of his arrows (in mononoke) was amazing. also stuff about environmentalism being portrayed in an even-handed tone yadda yadasdj

Miyazaki is slice of life, there is no climax to find, it's animation porn most of the time, the more the guy grew old the plot was abstract and an excuse to move stuff on screen.

Totoro, Sprited Away, and Princess Mononoke are timeless classics that cannot be fucked with.

All of the others are great movies, but have their own flaws. And I agree with Schoq, the Nausicaa manga is up there at the top too.

Laputa is a cool movie too
It's one of his few stories with an unambiguous villain but he makes sure watching him die feels really awful and ungratifying.

I've never really seen the appeal of spirited away, i find the main character obnoxious and besides the little ash creatures i'm mostly uninterested in it. Perhaps its a generation thing, with the children in totoro being more innocent and less cynical. Totoro just outshines it in every way for me.

Season 2 of Kaiji is killing me. The first game was good, but this pachinko shit is going on forever and no one has actually done anything significant or clever for several episodes.
