Does anyone else feel like Goro kind of just rides on his name alone? I mean this film was great from a technical standpoint, and the story was very moving, but It felt very unoriginal. I'm sure I can't be the only one with this viewpoint.
I just wonder how much of his career is thanks to his own dreams or ambition rather than his father's wishes.
If anything, his name is a burden for him as an artist to get recognized as someone of his own, rather than something he uses to coast on.
Goro will never create another Princess Mononoke.
If that was the case wouldn't his art be more original?
What's unoriginal about his art? If you're talking about character design, all Ghiblis are mostly on the same level, Miyazaki or not.
Fair enough. It just felt derivative as hell. I did enjoy it, though, if that makes sense.
Well you know, neither he nor Old Hayao wanted him to take on the family name, so to speak.
