Ferris Bueller Cufflinks. Leisure Rules

Who doesn't love a day off? A day dedicated to kicking back, relaxing and chilling the hell out. Maybe that's your routine on Christmas day? Then again, maybe a day off is better spent skipping school, frequenting a ball game, borrowing your friend's dad's vintage Ferrari 250 Gt California...and then totaling it? Yep, just another day in the life of Ferris Bueller. So with the Mathew Broderick 80s classic in mind, »

Studio Ghibli Announces New Miyazaki and Takahata Films For 2013

13 December 2012 5:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s long been rumored that legendary Japanese animation studio, Studio Ghibli, was working on two new film, one each from its two founders, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, but today the studio went ahead and made the rumors into official announcements [via SlashFilm]. Not only is Princess Mononoke director Miyazaki set to bring us a new film called The Wind is Rising, which is said to be something of a biopic for the designer of a famous Japanese fighter plane, and not only is Grave of the Fireflies director Takahata set to bring us a new film called The Tale of Princess Kaguya, which is said to be a re-telling of the old folktale “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter,” but both films are actually set to be released on the same day. This is kind of a throwback to when Miyazaki released My Neighbor Totoro and Takahata released Fireflies on the same day 25 years ago. Which »

Exclusive: News on the Upcoming Stage Adaptation of Miyazaki Hayao's Anime Classic Princess Mononoke!

21 November 2012 12:30 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

When Whole Hog Theatre announced the news about their new project being the world's first stage adaptation of Miyazaki Hayao's universally admired anime classic Princess Mononoke back in July, the response was overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Words quickly spread across the World Wide Web, and seemingly everyone, including even diehard fans of the original, was excited about the upcoming show. Then tickets went on sale, and in just 3 days, the show was sold out. Details about the production have been rather sketchy; except for certain facts such as the dates of the performance being the 2nd to 6th April 2013, the venue being the New Diorama Theatre in London, and that the stage production won't be an all-singing all-dancing musical (as reported by some websites) but will »

Two New Additions To Studio Ghibli’s Slate

21 November 2012 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Studio Ghibli are one of those rare studios that produce consistently fantastic work over and over again. Even Pixar have given us reprehensible garbage such as Cars 2, but Ghibli have never delved below ‘pretty good’ (that would go to Tales Of Earthsea). So it’s with great joy that we can report Studio Ghibli have added two new films to their slate of upcoming releases.

First of all Hayao Miyazaki returns yet again, which is great but for a man who intended to retire after Princess Mononoke in 1997. Miyazaki’s latest will be titled The Wind Rises and is based on the manga he wrote. It tells the story of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed the Japanese Zero Fighter, used in World War II. Miyazaki used pigs instead of humans for his manga, which will probably translate well to film giving his previous effort Porco Rosso (1992) featured a »

Blu-ray Review - My Neighbour Totoro (1988)

12 November 2012 4:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

My Neighbour Totoro (Japanese: Tonari no Totoro), 1988.

Directed by Hayao Miyazaki.

Featuring the voice talents of Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Tim Daly, Lea Salonga, Frank Welker, Pat Carroll and Paul Butcher.

Synopsis:

Two young girls move to the countryside with their father where they discover friendly spirits living in the forest surrounding their house.

Type 'totoro merchandise' into Google and you'll uncover an abundance of toys, bags, mugs, costumes and hats all branded with the furry creature's face. Spirited Away may be credited with sparking Ghibli fever worldwide, but it's the cuddly Totoro who has truly curled up and left his mark in our hearts. The lovable Miyazaki character has transcended his neighbour role to become a cult figure, cropping up everywhere from hipster jewellery to a cameo in Toy Story 3.

Gorgeous, hand drawn animation has come to be expected of Hayao Miyazaki, and My Neighbour Totoro's storybook aesthetic doesn't disappoint. »

Hayao Miyazaki Receives Japanese Cultural Merit Honor

1 November 2012 8:14 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Now this is a piece of news that brings a tear to an eye (and not ironically, sarcastically or in any bad way speaking) – the Japanese government announced anime director Hayao Miyazaki as one of this year’s 15 winners of the Person of Cultural Merit honor on Tuesday.

Hayao Miyazaki is best known for his animated films produced under Studio Ghibli, such as Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo. He is now deep in production of his latest work, an anime “with lots of airplanes” and a projected 2013 release date.

The Japanese government awards the cultural honor every November to people who contributed to Japanese culture for many years (something similar to an Award for lifetime achievement). The winners of The Order of Cultural Merit, highest order, are decorated by the Emperor himself in the Imperial Palace on November 3 — a national holiday called Cultural Day. This year’s »

Famed Anime director, Hayao Miyazaki gets a manga collector’s box

1 November 2012 7:36 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

If you’ve ever seen Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke or Howl’s Moving Castle, then you know the name Hayao Miyazaki. If you haven’t seen them (and therefore don’t know Miyazaki), perhaps you should stop whatever it is your doing (which would be reading this article) and get on Netflix right now to check out those films.

Miyazaki’s masterful direction is renowned in the world of anime. But some may not know that Miyazaki also made the journey into Manga with Nausicaä of the Valley.

Viz Media is releasing the 7-volume collected works as a box set on November 6. It features two oversized, hardcover volumes in a collector’s slipcase.

If you consider yourself a fan of anime, manga or just superb cartooning – you should check it out.

Blu-ray Review: The Occasionally Beautiful, Utterly Empty Snow White And The Huntsman

19 September 2012 5:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The instinct behind Snow White and the Huntsman is admirable, even if the execution ultimately falls flat: push the fairy tale into the realm of dark fantasy with a hint of political intrigue, with evil represented through the physical and emotional decay of the kingdom. There's even a dash of Miyazaki in there with an homage/direct lift (your mileage may vary) of the spirit of the forest scene from Princess Mononoke. Unfortunately, in the push to handsomely design the hell out of everything, to cast it just right, no one was able to get this story of pure beauty versus pure wickedness to a place where audiences could give a damn about the characters in it. We're constantly told that Snow White is the fairest »

Extended Thoughts on ‘Princess Mononoke’

25 August 2012 2:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Princess Mononoke

Directed by Hayao Miyazaki

Written by Hayao Miyazaki

Starring Billy Crudup, Claire Danes, Billy Bob Thornton, Jada Pinkett Smith

We all have pop-culture blind spots, and one of mine has been, for a long time, the films of Studio Ghibli. For some of you, the very notion that I haven’t seen every Studio Ghibli release over its near 30-year existence may invalidate my level of fandom. What’s more, the fact that I haven’t been universally bowled over by Ghibli’s films—prior to this week, I’d seen Ponyo, The Secret World of Arrietty, and Grave of the Fireflies—might make me sound inhuman. Grave of the Fireflies is something of an outlier, a purely adult piece of animation that wasn’t directed or written by Hayao Miyazaki, the Walt Disney or John Lasseter figure of Studio Ghibli. Miyazaki is clearly a prolific and respected »

Mousterpiece Cinema, Episode 59: ‘Princess Mononoke’

25 August 2012 2:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s a moment of truth on Mousterpiece Cinema this week, as Josh and Mike are joined by special guest Simon Howell from The Televerse and Sound on Sight’s flagship podcast. The trio team up to tackle the 1997 Studio Ghibli release Princess Mononoke. Along with Spirited Away, it’s one of writer-director Hayao Miyazaki’s most beloved films. And long-time listeners know exactly how much Josh wasn’t swayed by Spirited Away. Will the experience of Princess Mononoke be any different? Do Mike and Simon need to convince him of the film’s epic allure, its striking animation, and its complex characters? Find out whether or not Josh once again goes to bat for the out-there minority opinion, or if he finally succumbed to Ghibli’s charms on this week’s Mousterpiece Cinema!

Brave Review

15 August 2012 6:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman

Cast: Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane, Craig Ferguson

Certificate: PG

Running Time: 100 mins

Synopsis: Bored of conforming to the traditional Princess role that her mother has tried constantly to mold her into, Merida defies her parents by disagreeing to an arranged marriage. But after seeking the help of a Witch, Merida’s actions bring about disastrous consequences for her Kingdom and family.

Pixar make it very difficult to skirt around the issue of assigning clichéd terms of adoration to their work, and unsurprisingly their latest collaboration with Disney lives up to all the clichés. Magical, stunning and utterly mesmerising, the tale of Pixar’s first female lead set against a sumptuous Scottish backdrop provides plenty of laughter, tears and morals while being a thrilling and exciting yarn for viewers of all ages.

The odds seemed stacked against »
