Castle in the Sky (1986)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family
This is much better than “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” in my opinion and I was so happy to watch another Studio Ghibli film that was more my cup of tea 😛 . This narrative had me captivated and entertained within the first 5 minutes. The narrative for this animation is stunning and the characters are all very likeable. The characters of Sheeta and Pazu were interesting to follow but my favourites were the pirates. They were quite funny and had some of the best lines (comments) within the film. For me they were probably the best thing in this film 😛 . I loved the back stories within this film and the bad guys were interesting yet strong enough to make me believe the threat the main protagonists were facing. The ending sequences were my favourite part but mostly I enjoyed all of it. The artwork was good as usual 🙂 . I suppose why I loved this film more than the previous Studio Ghibli film was its comedy element and that it wasn’t too serious with its message. Overall a really good anime film :). Enjoy 😀 !
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
