Meh, I barely have any room left for posters anyway. I should post pictures of my room sometimes, IT'S NUTS! one wall (the only completely blank one) is completely COVERED with anime and techno posters.

I wish Sharkey or DJ Liquid had some posters out - I would support their business and buy them :).

Uhh, if you find one on ebay, do NOT buy it. You and the seller can get in a lot of trouble. It's illegal to sell these posters, or any mylars, film, etc. obtained from a movie theater.

Hmm... one question... can someone tell me if it's as bad as Mononoke Hime? I'm a little hesitant to spend money on going to see this when after all the hype I thought that MH was at most mediocre.

(As a reference the only Miyazaki I like is "Grave of the fireflies".)

>As a reference the only Miyazaki I like is "Grave of the fireflies".)

Which Miyazaki didn't direct, did a film class paper on him ^_~

I agree, Mononoke was overhyped. That's why I lowered my expectations for Spirited Away. But, it was a million times better. SA never felt preachy, the protagonist is a great character, and the visuals are really cool. Can you tell I'm not a writer, lol? Anyways, I bitched and moaned that the movie cost $10, but when I got out I felt it was totally worth it.

I was watching TV a few nights ago and our local entertainment show was on ( I forget if it was an entirely seperate show, or part of the news) and they were doing movie reviews.. and they reviewed Spirited Away and it only got like three stars or something. The movie critics were all saying how it would have done better in the 60's or something? @_@ And they were all laughing.. I wanted to punch them in the head. Even though I haven't seen Spirited Away. ^^;

Ayaka
09-30-2002, 02:44 PM
Better . . . in the 60s? *twitches* *goes on rampage* MORONS. Just because they couldn't handle the visuals and the plot without being on drugs doesn't mean that the rest of us can't watch it without LSD. Not to mention that that comment reduces it to nothing but eye candy and completely ignores the fact that there's more going on than that.

@_@ Wow, I liked Mononoke a lot.

Spirited Away is definitely less serious than Mononoke. It's more serious than Totoro (the other Miyzaki movie *I've* seen; I don't know if you've seen it).

Spirited Away is more of an Alice-In-Wonderland type adventure.

I really enjoyed it, personally. It's not deep or anything; it's just a fairy-tale type story that's told very very well IMHO.

Oshi
09-30-2002, 07:05 PM
I checked the newest Entertainment Weekly... Four ratings were on their lil chart with different reviewers: A, A+, A, and A-. o.o;
And the Philly Inquirer gave it 4 stars...
And it's only in 26 theaters so far, and has grossed $400,000 so far (avg of over $17,000 per theater! holy shit!)...

I can see this growing to a wide release soon...

John Booty
09-30-2002, 07:31 PM
*does some math*

Hmmm, $17,000 per screen....

The average blockbuster movie plays on somewhere between 2,000 and 3,000 screens at the height of its release.

If Spirited Away did $17,000/theater in 2,000 theaters, that would be $34 million in one week of release. That's a very respectable total by Hollywood numbers. Not recordsetting, but considering the niche audience and lack of an advertising/merchandising blitz... that's really good.

Of course, the limited number of screens actually *boosts* the average per screen since you have people from Town A traveling to Town B to see the movie. If it was playing in both towns, more people would see it, but the average would be slightly lower.

Most defaintely. If you hate symbolism [or jsut don't get it], I doubt you'll get the full UHMPH! out of it. ...but if you like random-ness, lack of 'real' plot, cute critters, and *pretty* boys, it is a must. ^_________^

Dern..good...anime...NEVER COMES TO ARIZONA! (Soon enough, that is.)

I am surprised to see so many Mononoke haters. I really really liked it. Sad-happy film. I don't need to go into detail, everyone has seen it.

But yes, I WILL be seeing Spirited Away as soon as it sees fit to cross the state boarder.

KuroBara
10-01-2002, 08:48 AM
I like MH, I just feel it was overhyped, and at times beat you over the head with it's environmental theme. SA was more lighthearted, and the characters were more realistic IMO. As for symbolism, I don't think it's all that deep. The theme of greed is right on the surface.

I've seen Grave of the Fireflies, Naussica, and Kiki's Delivery Service too. I think SA & Naussica are my favorites. Nausicaa has a similar theme to MH, but it's not as preachy. Highly reccomended.

Rosiel
10-01-2002, 09:54 AM
> @_@ Wow, I liked Mononoke a lot.

(Warning, morning crankiness oozing from the comment below LMAO)

To make a long story short...

1) Bland animation (I'm still reeling from the pan-then-slide-no-animation look of the first scene).

2) Even blander character design. Let's face it they /all/ look the same, men, women, goats... and they all look like every other Miyazaki movie too.

3) No character development. "OMG This girl tried to kill me! She has blood all over her face! I think I am in love!"

4) Don't talk to me about themes. This thing isn't trying to show an agenda, it's beating you over the head with it.

Not only that, but as far as lecturing about the importance of the environment, I think "Lion King" made a much better point than Mononoke Hime. (Yes, it is a remake of Kimba the White Lion, but some remakes are better than the original.)

5) Story? What story? (Oh you mean the contrived story that takes a predictable cliche path and do not even try to hide it with flowery dialogue?)

Evidently, I am extremely hard to please when it comes to animation, and hold it to the same criteria of excellence I would a movie. Mononoke Hime gets a C from me.

As a reference, Escaflowne Movie gets a C too, Perfect Blue gets an A and Ghost in the Shell a B+/A- depending on my mood.

> It's more serious than Totoro (the other Miyzaki movie *I've* seen; I don't know if you've seen it).

Totoro was cute. The little red-headed girl scared me though. X___X

> I really enjoyed it, personally. It's not deep or anything; it's just a fairy-tale type story that's told very very well IMHO.

My problem with fairy tales is that I was /so/ spoilt by Disney that it's very hard to reel me in an animated fairy-tale without the colors and facial expressions and glorious lush animation.

I'll go see it anyway, and try to walk in the theatre with low expectations (I think that's partly what killed Mononoke Hime for me, I was expecting so much more. High expectations tend to kill a movie more often than not, as I experienced lately with Lutzin Defense. -yes I love chess movies-). ^____^

Ali-kun
10-02-2002, 05:09 PM
Grah. I would LOVE to go see that but I am currently attending college in Podunkville, Texas. We have one movie theater that is 10~15 minutes away (assuming you can get a ride) with...um...I think it's 5 screens. Maybe 10. Yeah right they're going to have anything like that there XD

However, I WILL be first in line to see Harry Potter, whether or not they actually have it at our theater! I will bum a ride to Dallas with someone, I will I will I will ^_~

Maybe I can see Spirited Away over fall break...

Bad? You're kidding right? MH, did have great animation. To me it's along the lines of Galaxy Express. That's just my 2 cents. no offense but your reasoning behind not likeing MH is weak. You know you liked it, don't deny it. ;)

Rosiel
10-03-2002, 12:37 PM

It is? Refute it then. I think I made my case (as in why _I_think_ it is bad) rather eloquently, while all you did is tell me it's weak.

Why is it weak?
Did I miss an aspect of the movie?
Did I misunderstand something?
Not appreciate something to the fullest?

In order for us to have a dicussion you must explain your position.
I am willing to be convinced I misjudged that movie.
BUT telling me my argument is weak won't cut it.

> You know you liked it, don't deny it.

Please Ranma, people have opinions, and while I think you intended this as a joke, when taken in context of a lot of your previous posts, it can be misunderstood.

If I thought it was a good movie, I would have said so.

Oh for the love of Tenchi, do you have a habit over basically over analyzing what everyone says? You need to loosen up, stop being stiff. :) I am a generic anime fan. I'm just saying how can you not like it. Your views of the movies of picking it apart was just a bit shocking.

Out of like 100 people that liked MH, you despised it. Almost as bad as a good friend of mine. I don't remember every reason why he wasn't fond of it, but I do remember one reason he didn't like it. He didn't like the fact that San was saying she was not human, or something to that effect.

MH, had a different style of animation to it, more along the lines of old school anime of the mid 80's. It wouldn't suprise me that you and the newer generation of Otakus wouldn't like it. You were expecting MH, to be something along lines of FFU, FY, or maybe some other newer anime after 1999. Granted that Miyazaki's designs are virtually all alike, but that's his trademark, you really can't landbash him for that, can you?

As for the context for other posts that I have made, you basically were just sticking your nose where it didn't belong.

Foxwolfe

Personally I dont take hype into account at all when considering if I thought something was good or not. Take the Escaflowne movie for example, pretty much anyone I ask says they dont like it, mainly because of how it squeezed the series into a movie (when in fact they changed the story around too make it movie suitable, but whatever some people just dont get it).

But I thought it was great, I remember one of the first DVDs I got had a preview for the movie on it, which was the first I had seen of any escaflowne, and I thought it looked awsome, so much so that it made me want too watch the series (which I of course found out later the series wasnt even what I was initially interested in).

And when I finally was able to purchase the movie and watch it, I thought it was awsome. It had superb animation, as well as an amazing sound track, and I thought the story did a fine job telling what needed to be told in the alloted time.

I agree that I alot of times look into certain animes on how popular they are or good word of mouth or sometimes hype, but in the end I dont let any of that affect what I think of it after seeing it for myself. I am not a critic and therefor dont have too worry about telling if it is genuinly "good" or not, if I like it I like it, if I dont I dont.

I guess basicly what I am saying is that I dont really like comments like yours on how you based your thoughts on the movie partially on the hype it recieved, but as you stated before each is entitled to theyre own opinions and thats just life.

Ok you may now resume talking about that poster or whatever it is Im supposed to be jealous about.

Rosiel

"Oh for the love of Tenchi, do you have a habit over basically over analyzing what everyone says?"

It's not over-analyzing it's trying to start a discussion. ^____^

I pointed out what I did not like about the movie, instead of throwing down a value judgement "how can you not like it" why not tell me why you like it?

"You need to loosen up, stop being stiff. "

I am not stiff. I am interested in discussion, and do not appreciate my opinion being summarily dismissed as "weak".

"It wouldn't suprise me that you and the newer generation of Otakus wouldn't like it. "

I'm not part of the "newer generation of otaku". I was already watching anime in 1981 (yes I am that old). And I love Captain Harlock, Saint Seiya, Anime Three Musketeers, and all those old shows. I just do not like MH.

"I am a generic anime fan. I'm just saying how can you not like it."

Why? Is it not allowed? I know a lot of people who did not like it, more so than people who liked it, actually. ^___^

"Your views of the movies of picking it apart was just a bit shocking."

Why? Because my views are not what you're used to?
That's the whole point of a board! To bring together people with different views, and to try and make each other think about things that never came to mind before.

"You were expecting MH, to be something along lines of FFU, FY, or maybe some other newer anime after 1999. "

(What is FFU? O_O)
(FY is from 1996 BTW.)

And, no. I was expecting smooth animation, touching charaters and a compelling plot. I found something alien and eerie I could not get into. It might have to do with culture... I don't know.

"As for the context for other posts that I have made, you basically were just sticking your nose where it didn't belong."

Since you insulted and belittled my opinions publicly on this board a number of time, I do not consider this sticking my nose in. Just try to keep in mind that some jokes can be double-edged, and joking about someone's opinion being irrelevant is not funny.

Anyway, this is my last post on the subject.

Maybe I should start a new thread to discuss Mononoke Hime! I'd love to hear what people found compelling about it, what drew them in the story etc. =)

Spirited Away was a very damn good movie. I saw it last weekend @ White Flint Mall (there's a theatre in the DC area to see it, Rosiel. Plus w/ Metro access to get there!), but missed the ending because my mom bitched @ me on the cellphone for being "late" which I wasn't... but i did sneak over there w/ two of my friends when we were planning to see "The Tuxedo" in Germantown (15 mins away from my house unlike White Flint which is a half an hour away) >_<. We all said screw it, we want Anime and I wasn't going to tell my mom that I broke my "driving jurisdictions" with my parents' car on a Saturday night... in the city. :devil:

But it was worth all of that trouble to see it. If I could, I would see it again in theatres. I'm not that type of person that would see the same damn movie again unless it was damn excellent and worth my time to spend. And if you can't see it in theatres, it's already out on DVD.

Um... WTF?:confused: What the Hell's this "new Otaku generation" bullshit? Anime is Anime, period. Except the "newer" kinds use a bit more computer graphics. I'm one of those people who hate the use of computer graphics in animation because it takes the originality out of cartoons. But ReBoot was cool. I didn't have much of a problem w/ MH and surprisingly, I was amazed w/ the animation (the deer god walking w/ flowers blooming and dying under his feet.... that was cool). :)

Erm, I kinda take offense to that statement. I've been an anime fan for nearly 10 years now, yet I did not like Mononoke Hime that much.. and believe it or not, it wasn't for the animation. I LOVED the animation style and the lush fantasy environments that Miyazaki generally puts in his films! The plot didn't sit well with me, and the fact that it was over two hours long made me bored after a while, among other elements. (I get fidgety in long movies, haha!) However, I know some "newer generation Otakus" that enjoyed it a lot. Please don't generalize, it makes me sad.

However, I've decided that I would like a tree spirit for my very own. :D

That was what I found most compelling about the movie, the foreign-ness . . . without having analyzed the film much, I feel like it's more along the lines of older Japanese drama (like, traditional). Feels less like "anime", for lack of a better way to put it.

Uh...... nope. Not jealous. Sorry.

I also don't care much for Miyazaki's work. I'm not even entirely sure why, since so many people keep telling me I SHOULD like it. The visuals are lovely, no argument there, but there's just something about the ones I've seen (MH, Pom Poko, Porco Rosso, Laputa) that leaves me cold. (Totoro I do like, but I think it's because of the "charming" factor.) Believe me, I wish I could explain it as articulately as Rosiel (though I do agree with a lot of what she said about MH), but I'm pretty much in the "or leave it" camp.

Ah yes, I somehow feel like I shouldn't get anymore wallscrolls or posters since I have no more wallspace (even though I'd like to go out and buy more...). I have already resorted to putting the lightweight posters on my ceiling (Real Bout Highschool, Excel Saga <--- XD ) It doesn't help that my closet takes up one whole side of my room, which I could have easily used for 3 more wallscrolls or tons of posters >.< My non-anime-knowing relatives walk into my room nearly gasping, or just staring at me strangely....

Aah yeah, that's what you get for working in those types of places. A lot of my friends work or did work in electronics or game stores, so a million of my friends have the Devil May Cry big cardboard display thing, AND I DON'T!!!! I want it so badly >.< Giant Dante...*drool*

But as for movie posters, there is hope! Blockbuster usually keeps old posters lying around for a while. I used to ask every once and a while for posters. Eventually I asked so much they started charging 50 ^^; So, perhaps the Spirited AWay poster will find its way to a Blockbuster counter near you.

There's also like, posters.com, they have like every poster ever. N stuff.

*edit*

I thought Spirited Away was lame. Don't get me wrong, I like how Miyazaki puts every little details into his works to make them more realistic, bit SA just didn't do it for me. Mononoke was pretty good, but by far his best work is Grave of the Fireflies. Back in the day when I used to baby sit, I brought that movie over for these kids to watch. They liked it and asked a lot of questions about WW2 and it's effect on Japan, especially about the people that ended up homeless (like the ones they showed in the subway at the begining), etc. Note, they were 4 and 7. So I think because it was able to compell children so young, it's a good movie ^_^ I thought they'd loose interest and want to watch cartoons or fall asleep or something, but they watched the whole thing contently. When the parents came hold I told them about it, and they were interested as well.

Good flick.
