This is one of my favorite movies. Its set in the middle ages of Japan where gods and demons still walk among us. The prince Ashitaka must go on a long and difficult journey to get rid of curse that slowly eats him alive. He makes new friends and enemies while he is sucked in a war between humans and boars 5 meters (16 feet) high. This movie should have gotten an Oscar for animation or at least been nominated. Its sad to know that outside Japan this movie did not receive the credit it deserved.
Unbelievably amazing movie. I first saw this before it was translated while with a dear friend. I next saw the preview screening only to discover Neil Gaiman was sitting behind me (he adapted the English translation). Very cool guy to talk about it briefly.
Watched it again tonight (for maybe the 5th or 6th time). So beautiful. And the music is perfect.
The kiddos loved it. First time for them.
I seriously think this is the best animw movie EVER!!!! No competition
this is one of the movies that I've been planing to watch since forever ago and now that I've finally watched it im a little annoyed for not watching this masterpiece so long ago
Reviewing a film two decades after release is a fickle matter, and while the initial impact and cultural context are lost to the new viewer, the themes and messages aren't. Princess Mononoke is a proud and patient venture into the literary familiar.
Literally my favorite movie. I first saw it when I was 10 and have loved it ever since. I love it's environmentalist message and gives me greater pause to consider our effects on the earth we live on. It has, in my opinion, only gotten more relevant in time, especially in light of the recent election here in the US. It makes me work on striving to see with eyes unclouded by hate even when the horrors of the world make it hard to do so. I see something I didn't notice before each time I watch it. It is simply a masterpiece.
Like an acquaintance's b-day party, I enjoyed this one without feeling overly passionate about it.
In fact, I really wish this movie had been 'Princess Mononoke' and not what it was, because it would've been fascinating to watch a movie based on an enigmatic young woman who leaves her people to live with Gods and spirits in nature.
The film should have instead been called "Prince Ashitaka", because he's the true focus of this fantasy anime. The well-written story follows his hero's journey from his lost natal village to the magical forest where he fights both natural and supernatural monsters.
The animation is fantastic, the editing is on point and the arc of the film is satisfying, I just didn't find myself mentally cheering for the good guys to win and praying for the bad guys to lose.
I really enjoyed this movie, like most of Hayao Miyazaki's well known work. It was just way too long.
I remember watching it when I was a kid and it seemed really creepy. Now I'm 26 years old and it still creeps the hell out of me.
A great poetical film. The animation is fantastic!
Epic story and breathtaking visuals.
Another great movie by Miyazaki, solid 8.5 stars. It was really sad to see forest Spirit die because of greed. As many movies of Miyazaki this is a critic of society, we have greed, hate, destroy the environment and mass murder animals so that we can eat their flesh.
As habitual from Ghibli, very well drawed, but the story of pig gods, and wolf gods i simply doesn't like it. the story is bad
I guess it is good for anime. It did look amazing. I'm thinking anime is just not my thing. Why do so many have to be about demons and spirits? I just can't relate. It was a real struggle for me not to fall asleep in the middle of it. No matter how hard I try, I always seem to find anime a bit too ridiculous.
My first gory anime. Loved it back then and love it now.
epic just epic and wow i have nothing to say
