best films

I've been watching a lot of movies lately (cartoon/anime) The latest is My Neighbor Totoro originally released in 1988 (saya pun belum lahir) , directed by Hayao Miyazaki is one of the Best Films of World Cinema. Tonari no Totoro (Japanese language) is a must watch!

This is the disc cover

This superbly animated children's tale is directed by Hayao Miyazaki, one of Japan's most beloved animators. The story follows Satsuke and Mei, two young girls who find that their new country home is in a mystical forest inhabited by a menagerie of mystical creatures called Totoros. They befriend O Totoro, the biggest and eldest Totoro, who is also the king of the forest. As their girls' mother lies sick in the hospital, O Totoro brings the sisters on a magical adventure but also helps them to 
understand the realities of life. Like most films released by Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli, this family-oriented feature has a powerful ecological theme. The English-language version of this film wasn't dubbed until many years later, explaining the presence of actors such as Dakota Fanning in the cast (who wasn't even born until 1994). ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, Rovi

And i watched another Japanese film, same director, Spirited Away a.k.a Sen to Chihiro Kamikakushi. OMG this film make me lost in nowhere. I'm into this movie so much and it originally released on 2001. 

Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi
I downloaded it via Torrent

The film opens with ten-year-old Chihiro riding along during a family outing as her father races through remote country roads. When they come upon a blocked tunnel, her parents decide to have a look around -- even though Chihiro finds the place very creepy. When they pass through the tunnel, they discover an abandoned amusement park. As Chihiro's bad vibes continue, her parents discover an empty eatery that smells of fresh food. After her mother and father help themselves to some tasty purloined morsels, they turn into giant pigs. Chihiro understandably freaks out and flees. She learns that this very weird place, where all sorts of bizarre gods and monsters reside, is a holiday resort for the supernatural after their exhausting tour of duty in the human world. Soon after befriending a boy named Haku, Chihiro learns the rules of the land: one, she must work , as laziness of any kind is not tolerated; and two, she must take on the new moniker of Sen. If she forgets her real name, Haku tells her, then she will never be permitted to leave. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Next movie that i watched: Kerity La Maison des Contes. Its a French movie and was released on 2009 or Eleanor's Secret in English. It was unbearably awesomest cartoon movie ever that i've watched 

Kerity.He is cute.
A young boy learns about the power of the written word in this fantasy from French animator Dominique Monfery. When their offbeat Aunt Eleanor passes away, two children are willed gifts from her estate. Angelica is given an antique doll, while Nat receives the keys to his aunt's secret library, which contains rare first editions of some of the world's best known children's books. Nat has no interest in reading and hasn't bothered to learn how; he feels like he's been gypped, and lets his folkssell the collection to the mysterious Mr. Pickall in order to pay for repairs to their home. But Nat learns there's more to the library than he thought when suddenly the characters come to life and tell him that unless he can read a magical incantation printed in one of the books, the characters will vanish and their stories will be lost for all time. After an encounter with a devious witch, Nat is transported to the world of the fairy tale characters, and in cahoots with Alice from Wonderland and The White Rabbit, he looks for a way to rescue the books from Mr. Pickall and keep the stories alive. Kerity, la maison des contes (aka Nat e il segreto di Eleonora and Eleanor's Secret) was initially released in French, Italian and English-language versions; the English language print was an official selection in the Children's Program at the 2010 Traverse City Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

I have one more film to watch in my waiting list (it's a French movie): Le Magasin de Suicides or The Suicide Shop which is one of the eccentric movies i guess based on its review. I just need some free time and start to watch this. 
The Suicide Shop (La Magasin des Suicides), Rendez-vous with French Cinema
ain't it creepy?

Master filmmaker Leconte makes a startling and unforgettable departure from his previous work with this whimsical animated 3D musical about a family business offering certain special “end‐of‐life” services. Rather than succumbing to a purely mordant perspective, the movie switches course and mood, driven by the family’s perpetually happy child whom they can’t control. Based on the novel by Jean Teule and with the voices of Bernard Alane, Isabelle Space, Kacey Mottet Klein, Isabelle Giami,
Laurent Gendron.

And i have movies that i wish to download : 
1. Princess Mononoke (Hayao Miyazaki)
2. Howl's Moving Castle ( " )
3. Ponyo ( ") 

Basically i love all Japanese films especially from Studio Ghibli. They are damn cute and i like the storyline so much and its totally different from Disney/Buena Vista and whatsoever. Thats all #MovieReview P1
