Film Details

Starring: James Van Der Beek, Anna Paquin, Cloris Leachman, Mark Hamill

Genre: Animation, Foreign,
Summary: Hayao Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky is a magical tale that will tickle your imagination.
What I liked: The animation is beautiful and unique. Not only does it have a unique story, it has different characters, places and things that you wouldn’t find in your average animation film. I think some of the characters in the movie were from another movie of his, like actors in a cartoon world.
Titled Tenkû no shiro Rapyuta in the original Japanese, and almost 20 years old, it is still an animation classic. Castle in the Sky is not my favorite Miyazaki movie, but definitely a “two-time-watch” kind of movie.

Didn’t like: It is really beautiful, but at some points, it seems like Miyazaki was trying to be too magical. It plays lullaby music in the background of some scenes, and it makes me want to fall asleep. Maybe he was aiming for that warm fuzzy feeling, who knows.

Recommend for: Kids of all ages and animation fans.

    I’ve been a Gamefly member for over 4 years and I can definitely attest to the diminishing availability of new releases. I used to always get new releases, as long as they were at the top of my list on release and I had an open slot. Always. Today is the third time in a row where they have failed to ship me a new release. I don’t know if they have decreased their initial stock or if are a lower priority the longer you are a member.
