10 Spirited Away Facts You Never Knew

10 Spirited Away Facts You Never Knew
Visionary legend Hayao Miyazaki was said to be retiring, but instead, he blessed the world with the Oscar winning Spirited Away, Japan's highest-grossing movie of all time. The smart and evocative children's story was the first animated feature to win the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, the first movie in history to make $200 million before its North American release, and it even beat Titanic in Japan. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Spirited Away.

A Kid Brought Miyazaki Out Of Retirement

The ten-year-old daughter of one of Miyazaki's associate producers inspired Spirited Away after the filmmaker met her during his annual sabbatical at a mountain cabin, where he often spends time with friends and family. Though he'd announced his retirement from filmmaking in 1997, he felt compelled to make something of worth and substance for kids her age. He wanted to give kids an

Michael B. Jordan (‘Black Panther’) vs. Josh Brolin (‘Avengers: Infinity War’) in clash of Marvel villains at MTV Movie and TV Awards
Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther”) is the MTV Movie and TV Awards front-runner for Best Villain, according to the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. But can he really take down Thanos? He goes head-to-head against Josh Brolin, who is arguably the biggest big-bad in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Black Panther” is the most critically acclaimed of the Marvel movies, thanks in part to the complexity of its villain, Erik Killmonger, whose motives actually ring true: he’s a vengeful social justice warrior who resents the highly advanced, but isolationist nation of Wakanda for turning its back on black suffering throughout the world. However, his plan is to use Wakanda’s might to enslave the world as Africans were enslaved, and the title superhero couldn’t stand for world domination.

As of this writing Jordan leads our predictions with odds of 5/6. He’s backed by four Editors who

Island Life: Revisiting ‘Lilo & Stitch’ After ‘Moana’

‘Lilo & Stitch’ deserves better.

Lilo & Stitch is the “Barb” of Disney movies. Yes, Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Treasure Planet exist. However, neither of those films have seen as much success and then sunk back into Disney-relative obscurity quite like Lilo & Stitch. The film was a full-fledged franchise in its heyday spawning multiple television series, two direct-to-video sequels, a Kingdom Hearts cameo, and its own video game. To be fair, Disney did have a reference to Lilo & Stitch in Moana — early on, Moana helps a baby turtle make its way into the ocean by obscuring it from birds under a palm frond. A solid “save the cat” moment that creates a presumption of goodness and a sly reference to Lilo & Stitch. Stitch, in a post-credit image, is seen shadowing a turtle and its child in the same way. It’s a fun little throwback to Disney’s first foray into depicting Polynesian culture.

Why Didn't Naomi Watts Return in Rings?

Why Didn't Naomi Watts Return in Rings?
When Paramount started moving forward with Rings in early 2015, there was talk that this project was actually a prequel to the 2002 hit thriller The Ring, which starred Naomi Watts as Rachel Keller, Martin Henderson as Noah Clay and Daveigh Chase as the iconic Samara Morgan. When shooting began just a few weeks later, director F. Javier Gutierrez confirmed that this story is actually a sequel, although none of the original cast members were brought back for this follow-up. F. Javier Gutierrez revealed in a new interview that he had actually considering bringing back Naomi Watts as Rachel Keller, but the reason it never happened may surprise you.

The Ring, which was based on the hit Japanese thriller Ringu, was a big hit at the box office, taking in $129.1 million domestically and $249.3 million worldwide from a $48 million budget. The 2005 sequel, The Ring Two, wasn't quite as successful, earning $76.2 million domestic and

Donnie Darko 3 Planned with Original Director Richard Kelly
Will we finally get Donnie Darko 3, a true sequel to the Jake Gyllenhaal sci-fi classic? Last year, the 2001 thriller Donnie Darko celebrated its 15th Anniversary with a 4K re-release in select U.K. theaters, although it never made it to the U.S. Now that the re-release is available on Blu-ray, writer-director Richard Kelly revealed in a new interview that he does have plans for a true follow-up that will return to this unique universe. While he doesn't offer specifics, the filmmaker explained that it will be even bigger and more ambitious than the original.

"I think there's something much bigger and more ambitious to do in that universe. It's big and expensive and I think there's time to get to that. I want to make sure we've got the budget to do it justice and not to compromise anything. Another story in this world needs resources and we need to have that in place.

Richard Kelly has plans for a Donnie Darko sequel

Director Richard Kelly exploded onto the scene in 2001 with his acclaimed feature debut Donnie Darko, following it up with the divisive Southland Tales in 2006 and the 2009 Richard Matheson adaptation The Box before pretty much disappearing off the radar as he tried unsuccessfully to get several projects off the ground.

Now, chatting to HMV to promote the 4K restoration of Donnie Darko, Kelly has revealed that he has plans for another film set in the same universe, which he plans to focus on once he’s completed his next movie.

“I think there’s something much bigger and more ambitious to do in that universe,” said the director. “It’s big and expensive and I think there’s time to get to that.

‘Jack Goes Home’ Review

Repression can be a horrible thing. As much as our minds would like us to forget trauma and pain, it’s proven fact that it’s often more damaging than it is helpful. So discovers Jack (Rory Culkin), a young man who has a baby due with Cleo (Britt Robertson) who gets a call at work that his parents have been in a car accident and that his father has passed away. He returns to his childhood home to care for his mother Teresa (Lin Shaye). Jack starts looking into his past, discovering forgotten secrets which will literally begin to haunt him.

Jack Goes Home is a movie which is best described as chilling. When Jack is relaying to Cleo that his father died in a “by the way,” matter of fact fashion, we already know something is off. Jack is damaged. He claims he’s made peace with it,

‘Jack Goes Home’ Review

Stars: Rory Culkin, Lin Shaye, Britt Robertson, Nikki Reed, Natasha Lyonne, Daveigh Chase, Louis Hunter, Serge Levin, Michael Sirow, Hutchi Hancock | Written and Directed by Thomas Dekker

How we deal with loss is a personal thing that affects us in different ways. Something we can all agree on though is that it can be one of the hardest things we ever have to go through. Jack Goes Home is a new movie that looks at coping with loss, or to be more precise, not being able to cope with it.

When Jack (Rory Culkin) receives news that his father is dead he travels home to look after his mother (Lin Shaye) who was also in the accident with her husband. Dealing with the loss, Jack begins to discover long buried secrets about himself and his parents that make him question everything about himself.

[Review] Jack Goes Home

There’s no question that Thomas Dekker‘s sophomore effort as writer-director is a head-scratcher. What you as a viewer must decide is whether or not to keep scratching. I don’t think anyone outside of Dekker himself can truly unpack the type of psychological chaos occurring within Jack Goes Home, and I like that notion. This is an artist using his medium as an outlet to exorcise demons without necessarily factoring in audience expectations. It doesn’t supply easy answers, leaves a ton of loose ends as far as what’s real or fantasy, and turns deadly violent on a dime. It seeks divisiveness by throwing the kitchen sink of horrific tragedies onto Jack Thurlowe (Rory Culkin) until he can no longer breathe before letting him stew — simultaneously unhinged and deceptively anticlimactic.

But the latter isn’t deflating as much as unexpected. Most horror films begin where this one ends,

‘Jack Goes Home’ Review

Actor Thomas Dekker takes a temporary break from life in front of the camera to head behind the lens with new film Jack Goes Home. Taking on the dual tasks of writer and director in Jack Goes Home, Dekker has crafted a tight psychological thriller.

The story concerns Jack (Rory Culkin), who travels home after the death of his father to look after his sick mother (Lin Shaye). It’s been a long time since Jack has been home, and whilst mourning his father he stumbles across a family secret that will change not only his life, but his very being, forever.

Thematically Jack Goes Home is dark and intense. The colour palette is suitably shadowy, highlighting those things that are kept hidden away, out of sight. Truly terrible deeds have been committed within Jack’s past, Dekker handling them astutely, ensuring that these travesties pack a punch. As events

Jack Goes Home Review

Revenge, grief and piercing secrets make Jack Goes Home quite the interesting genre hybrid, but Thomas Dekker’s disparaging darkness might rely a bit too heavily on haunted aesthetics. The story itself is one of loss and homecoming, hinged on a character’s wading through pools of emotional unrest. People cope in infinite ways, and Dekker’s appropriation of Jack is meant to show man’s ability to teeter at wit’s end – a brutal inner tumble that continually drags us down to deeper depths. Some unsettling imagery couples with a dreamlike waltz through personal strife, yet come the film’s twisted finale, Dekker loses grasp of the self-discovery at stake. Brittle reveals crumble at the cusp of understanding, meant to rattle instead of satisfy – the whole style over substance cliché rearing its head once again.
