Miyazaki is an exceptional artist, he always has wonderful stories produced. And such amazing work credited to his name. I'm a huge fan of Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Neko no Ongaeshi (The Cat Returns), and an especially huge fan of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
I love all of his movies and anything that comes out of Studio Ghibli. I realize that not all the movies i listed above were not created by Miyazaki himself, but they did come from his creative minions and from the company that he is most famous from. I love Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki's works.
i would travel to the ends of the world just to be with you again. i would leave behind everything, everyone i knew, just to be with you again. that was my promise. that was my vow. and now that i have you again, i have to say goodbye, my love..

I've only seen 3 movies made my Miyazaki: Spirited Away, Naussica of the Valley of the Wind, and Princess Monoke. I saw Princess Mononke several years ago...probably when I was like 12. I was still prone to all the violence in the movie then so I didn't like it then...maybe if I rewatch it now I would have a different opinion. I saw Spirited Away last year and I loved it. The entire storyline fancinated me and I thought the plot to be good. Naussica was ok...I got bored during some parts of it. I thought it to be a good story and all but not much plot and character development. This type of anime is not my favorite genre anyway.

I've seen Spirited Away, Laputa, and Princess Mononoke (I seriously don't think I got the title right, but I do know it's a Miyazaki movie. I haven't seen Nausicaa yet, but I do have the first volume of the manga. I've also seen Totoro. I have Spirited Away and Laputa on DVD and Totoro on video. I really liked the Miyazaki movies. They held a lot of depth and interesting characters. But now I'm just sounding weird, so I'll sum my reaction up in two words. THEY ROCK!!!!

Just watched a Miyazaki film yesterday, actually. "Kaze no Tani no Nausicań" to be exact. That's my favorite one for reasons unknown. I actually liked the Cantonese script for Nausicań more than the original Japanese. They were somehow able to give the Cantonese script a lot more. As well, Priscilla Chan voiced Nausicań in the Cantonese dub I saw and that may make me a little biased.
My second favorite is probably "Grave of the Fireflies", which was really well done. I've also seen "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Only Yesterday" in Cantonese; "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" and "Kiki's Delivery Service" in Japanese. There's a bunch I want to see but will probably never get around to them (still haven't seen "Mononoke Hime"). For some reason, I really didn't like "Spirited Away". Overall, I think Studio Ghibli makes good films. They're not the best, but they're good.

I love Miyazaki's movies. His artwork and stories are incredible. Some of my personal favourites have to be Spirited Away, Laputa, Mononoke Hime, and The Grave of the Fireflies. I was just curious: Has any one seen his latest film "Howl's Moving Castle"? I saw a short clip of the film online and it looked great. I wonder when it will make its debute in Europe and America.
Full Metal: Grave of Fireflys is not as scary as it is very moving and depressing. It is a beautiful movie, but is very unsettling. The movie became even more tragic when I learned that it was based on a true story.

For me, I'll say...
Spirited Away was definitely the far more surpassing one since the upcoming of Howl's Moving Castle (although Howl has a hot voice). Second, I'll say either Laputa: Castle in the Sky or Kiki's Delivery Service because I really liked the producing of KDS.
