I'm about to watch this for the first time. What should I expect?
something vastly inferior to the manga
Take out SIC
Don't expect the music to be the quality of his more recent films. Very synthesized.
The most kickass heroine Miyazaki has devised.
Also, more hating on civilization. It's like an older, desert version of Princess Mononoke.
>something vastly inferior to the manga
Frankly, I didn't think it was AWESOME, but it's good.
Expect hippies, hang gliders, lasers and giant insecs.
giant people don't do a good job a smashing giant bugs...
The best Miyazaki film, probably.
They made the manga for the sole reason of gaining support to make the movie.
WATCH WARRIORS OF THE WIND INSTEAD
I'd read the manga beforehand and the movie was just a huge disapointment.
Damn fine film but the MANGA is better. It is fucking epic.
Forget the film, it is supremely inferior to source material.
My favorite of all his films
You best be watching Laputa afterwards son.
Laputa was better.
The cramped text gave me a massive headache, I'll try reading it whilst sober next time.
Saw an original cell from this last week.
Ten points for guessing where.
>>Ten points for guessing where.
It's a Miyazaki film and therefore awesome. It's great alright, but definitely not his best film.
Expect a Deus Ex Machina at the end.
Oh, no worries there. I bought it.
It's good. I prefer it over Laputa (annoying villain) and Mononoke (freaky).
