My Favourite Ghibli Films!2019.06.13


My Favourite Ghibli Films!

Hello!
イーオン日立校ブログです☆彡
Sarah先生の毎朝のジョギングも雨の日ばかりはお休みするそうですが、ブログは休みません!お楽しみください♪

Dear readers,
 
Rainy reason has begun! It’s starting to get wet outside. Please take care to stay dry and wear your rain gear.
 
Last week, as you may know, I did a special Disney song class! It was really fun – we sang songs from Aladdin and from Beauty and the Beast. But did you know that as well as Disney, I also love Studio Ghibli?
 
I’ve loved Ghibli films for a long time, since I was about thirteen! Although not everyone in the UK knows Ghibli, it’s quite popular. I think about 20% of people recognise the names of some of the movies. Personally, I have almost all the Ghibli films on DVD in the UK, and I actually started a small Ghibli film club at University where we gathered and watched them together. I’m really enthusiastic about them!
 
I’m sure you’re wondering which of the Ghibli films is my favourite. Well, it was hard to choose, but I managed to put together my top five:
  Princess Mononoke もののけ姫 Spirited Away 千と千尋の神隠し Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind 風の谷のナウシカ Howl’s Moving Castle ハウルの動く城 Laputa Castle in the Sky 天空の城ラピュタ  
Although I like all the movies, for me these are the most engaging and beautiful. They also have the best soundtracks, in my opinion! I’m a big fan of Hisaishi Joe’s composing. I know that many Japanese people would put My Neighbour Totoro in their top five lists, and I like Totoro too. Totoro is a feel-good film, which is easy to watch – however, I prefer films with more exciting storylines and more emotion, which can make me cry.
 
If I had to choose between Ghibli and Disney, I would choose Ghibli in a heartbeat. The reason is that the Ghibli stories are much more like real life. Even if it’s set in a fantasy world, the characters have real, complicated emotions and flaws. In Disney, there are evil characters and good characters. But life isn’t black and white like that! In real life, nobody is good or evil – we just have different perspectives and opinions. Ghibli writers understand that, and never put “evil” villains in their stories.
Moreover, the Ghibli stories deal with important human issues like the consequences of war, respecting nature, and understanding other cultures. I think it’s important for children to watch movies with themes like these to help them understand the world they live in.

 
So, tell me, what are your favourite Ghibli films? I’d love to know! Let’s talk about it sometime.
 
Have a fun-filled week, and stay dry!
 
Best wishes,
Sarah
