Nukerjsr, did we even watch the same movie? It was the king who was flat, while Elinore especially had quite a bit of character depth.And the trailers only showed around half the movie - they give the impression that Elinore barely matters other than to spur Merida to run away, when she does so much more than that.The movie also succeeds on being really damn pretty and having a great score.
Big Trouble in Little China was fuckin'... yeah!
Wall-E didn't make any sense. First of all, it's a robot. How am I supposed to connect with a robot? They don't have motivation or feelings. And how am I supposed to figure out his "motivations" if he doesn't talk?
I despise Naausica for the same reason.
I despise Naausica for the same reason.Welp. I guess you are beyond helping, and I can discount all of your opinions. Nausicaa is one of my absolute favorite fictional characters and I consider her my fictional role model, the kind of person I aspire to be a least a little bit like. She is a very deep character, who is about the struggle between pacifism and self defense, full of compassion but also able to fight to protect those she loves. She has anger and hate, but she recognizes those feelings and fights against them, which makes her incredibly human. She is a pragmatic leader who is very brave. She looks beyond appearances, and tries to resolve conflicts by understanding.One of the things I love about Nausicaa is that she is not perfect, but she tries to follow her ideals anyway.
I don't hate the character, I hate the movie. I don't love her as much as you clearly do, but she certainly deserves a better movie than the one she got. Also, why am I the only one of us who follows the non-aggression pact?

What is your favorite movie, Greg? Just curious. I hear you rag on movies a lot, but I don't think I have ever heard you talk in glowing terms about any piece of media on the forums.
Okay, you like Princess Mononoke so you are back on my list of people I share tastes with a little bit. I heart that movie.Was the Tintin movie actually good? I didn't go see it, but I like Tintin.
All of those films are good (except for that Beatles newsreel one, whose quality I can't speak to), but I can honestly say that if any one of those is your favorite film, then you need to see more films.
Also, WUB, Princess Mononoke is one of my favorite movies, and I have seen a ton of movies, so hey.
I still feel insulted. Is that an issue?
You said I needed to see more films if Mononoke was my very favorite, and it's pretty much my very favorite (it's hard to pick, just like with books), and I said that lack of seeing films is definitely not the problem with my choice.There are better films, even better and more acclaimed Ghibli films, but Mononoke and Nausicaa are the ones that really meshed with my imagination and sensibilities.
