    My absolute favourite Laputa, Castle in the Sky is on Film4 this afternoon. Awesomeness!
    Was it the version that they ruined by re-dubbing with James Van Derp Beek?

    All the Ghibli films shown this season are the subbed versions, with the expection of Ponyo on Xmas day

    I've not seen the re-dubbed Laputa, which is probably a good thing as I've heard rumours it's atrocious. I usually avoid dubs but having said that, I quite enjoyed the English dub of Howl's and Spirited Away.

    Talking of ruined versions, has anyone ever watched the old first version English dub of Valley of the Wind? Man, I remember that... awful editing of the movie to the point that the story didn't make much sense.

    I never saw the first English dub of Nausicaa because a friend of mine told me never to watch it (I am a bit of a subtitle facist so it could have been amazing and I would still have hated it).

    That being said the normal Japanese movie doesn't make a great deal of sense itself. I used to have the comicbook version which apparently makes everything clear including explaining where the giant eva/mecha things came from.... but I wouldn't know cause I never read it all (In my defence I had the Japanese version and the language was a bit archaic.)

    Ponyo was Miyazaki's last wasn't it or is he doing any more? If he's done I guess Mamoru Hosoda who made Girl Who Leapt Through Time can pick up the mantle, as people have mentioned that movie was awesome and I must get round to watching Summer Wars one day too.

    Noticed that it was on just as the film was starting, a real stroke of luck. Got it recorded to watch tomorrow.

    Oddly enough I was watching Totoro earlier this morning when my lad asked if we could find some more Studio Ghibli films to watch. Not seen Howl's before, looking forward to it now :)

    It's so hard to pick my favourite Ghibli film. Ponyo was awesome and so was My Neighbour Totoro. However Princess Mononoke really stuck in my head for some reason and now when I think of Studio Ghibli I straight away think of it.

    Kiki's Delivery Service is a good one. I think that was the first Ghibli movie I saw. That's probably my favourite actually.

    That's pretty good!

    Picked up PandaGoPanda for the kids over Xmas but have only just got round to watching it. Some very early stuff but you can see the seeds of Totoro germinating somewhat.

    Trailer for From up on Poppy Hill



    Looks a lot more serious and real world based than a lot of Ghibli's other films, beautiful artwork as always though.

    Welcome :) Lovely film, as expected. As ever, the backgrounds are just stunning. I like the Borrowers books, I'm going to tell my daughter they are real :D

    I find it slightly weird watching something so quintessentially English and part of my literary education to be 'animefied'. The characters remind me of Nausicaa which seems so very far away from the world of Mary Norton. Howls moving castle was bit like that too but this is more extreme. Still great though!

    Kiki's does that for me, especially with the Japanese English soundtrack, although visually I guess that's more central/west European, and the soundtrack a touch Americanised. Never read Borrowers or Howl's though, but there is something peculiar about the Howl's movie I didn't like first time round. It's now probably my second favourite Ghibli film though, after Mononoke. Not seen Arriety yet though (and didn't see this thread in time to set the timer).

    Fuck.

    /missed it

    /scans for repeat next week

    Out of interest, was it the Eng dub or JP with subtitles ? Noticed the early evening Ghiblis were Eng last time on Film 4, with JP/subs for the morning repeats the following days. Could work out in my favour still.

    The cat returns is my favorite Ghibli film. I've only seen about 10 of them though.

    The dub was the British ones as well, there is also an American one.

    The one shown is the superior dub.

    The British casting was excellent for Arrietty; I recorded the broadcast but not watched it yet, though I saw it in the cinema with the original Japanese language.
