Song of the Sea + Princess Kaguya

Zime's Ramblings

:star: Song of the Sea
:bulletblue: Rotten Tomatoes: 98%
:bulletblue: IMDB: 8.3/10

MistyTang and I were at Wal-Mart last week and we saw it was on blu-ray, so we just decided to buy it blind because we'd enjoy Tomm Moore's previous work, The Secret of Kells so much.
I gotta say it's worth buying!
It's about a brother and sister who live on an island, one a human, and the other part selkie who can't talk. When they're taken away from their bereft father to the main land, they make a journey back while unfolding a myth that resembles their own family's state.
It's a little slowly paced, but that's okay because the movie's only 90 minutes.

Great music, characters and animation!

As with The Secret of Kells, the more I watch it, the more I like it. Hehe. I'd still say I like Kells more than Song of the Sea, but still worth owning as well.
A great thing about Tomm Moore's work is that with Kells it's centered around Bible illuminators, and with Song of the Sea, it's centered solely around pre-Christianity myth... and both are treated with love and respect from the creators.
Is it possible to believe in one religion but still find beauty in another, or be an atheist and still find beauty in religion/myth? You bet your ass. And I applaud all of you who're able to look at things in this way.

So give it a watch! I think you'll enjoy it.

:star: The Tale of Princess Kaguya
:bulletblue: Rotten Tomatoes: 100%
:bulletblue: IMDB: 8.1/10

This one's also based in myth, but this time from our friends in Japan.
It's about a little girl (Kaguya) who's born from a bamboo shoot in the countryside. Her parents, believing her to be a gift from the heavens, take her to the city and make her into a princess. Her father then proceeds to try and marry her off but Kaguya really just wants to go back to the countryside.

This movie is really long (2+ hrs) and really slowly paced, which isn't bad since it's consistent, but you have to be the right type of person to be able to watch it. In other words, you can't be on your phone or computer at the same time.
So what did Zime think of this movie? It's good, I'd say worth a watch. It's got great atmosphere and a unique style of animation, which is a breath of fresh air for anime.
Another thing I really liked about it is that the characters actually look Japanese, which is surprisingly rare from Japanese animation.
Some things I didn't like: some parts of the movie seem a little weird/out of place to me, and I wasn't exactly sure how a lot of things that happen throughout the movie tie into the ending.
All in all I wouldn't say this movie's "my thing", but it's good and you might really like it, so I'd say give this one a watch too. :)

OH! And there are a few nursing shots and little kid private parts so if you're squeemish about showing your kids that sort of thing, then don't watch with your kids.


So now that I've seen most of the movies that were nominated for best animated picture, which one deserved to win?
Eh, they were all good and worthy of the title so it's all fine with me. :)

Hello there! Notes don't work at this public computer lab so you can respond to this in notes if you prefer and I'll check later. It's been a couple weeks, you did get my drawing of Otto and Jupiter yet? If not let me know since I wasn't able to get it tracked and I'm always such a worrywart with sending art and I'll see what I can do, sorry if that's the case ^^;

Zime, are you planning to do a review on Kingsman? I'm very curious what you have to say.
