At first glance, Mandrake and Bella Yaga are driving the same car as Arsène Lupin in Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro, directed by Goro's father Hayao Miyazaki. However, the car in Earwig is actually a Citroën 2CV, they look similar, but the two chevrons in the front grill is unmistakable in Earwig. The yellow car in Lupin III is a 1957 Fiat 500. You can see the red Fiat logo in front. Both cars are yellow, both have a sunroof. See more »

I saw today that there was a new film from studio Ghibli, and I got excited. Then I watched it... I shouldn't have. The story begins a bit confusing, it's very disjointed and plays out like a montage, as the whole movie sort of seems to. Things begin to pick up around the middle, and you start to trace the movie so far, and it leads your mind to many possibilities that you can theorize may come to pass. When the time comes to deliver on even a single one of the things that were foreshadowed, it never does. The entire film feels like a budget toddler program, like something from Cocomelon... and it's insulting that it bares the Studio Ghibli name. The ending was a big slap in the face, and everything you have been anticipating gets dumped in your lap like a curtain reveal, amd the movie ends, with no rhyme or reason, it's just over. What?
