[movie] Laputa: Castle In The Sky
Laputa: Castle In The Sky
A Movie by Studio Ghibli, 1986.
An airship is being attacked by pirates. A girl, who seems to be kidnapped by the ones controlling the airship and wanted by the pirates, tries to escape but slips and falls.
Then a young boy, Pazu, on his way back to the mines notices a girl slowly falling down from the sky. And so the adventure begins...
The story is executed almost perfectly from beggining till the end. Even if you are an action fan you won't be disappointed - there are many fast-paced chases and explosions :)
Art and animation (9/10)
For the movie of such age, the animation quality is amazing! I've seen TV series animated FAR worse than this movie.
The english dub was horrible. A lot was added that wasn't on the Japanese track. Even the subs were off - they followed the english dub. The music, however, was superb. Nothing less to expect from Joe Hisaishi, just it's intresting that the Laputa theme was used in Spirited Away.
This is a true Miyazaki classic. It does not matter whether you are just a kid or an adult, you will find something enjoyable in this movie.
(screencaps and probably some edits coming as soon as I get over this goddamn cold)
