Favorite Studio Ghibli Movies

  • Aug 17, 2009

Studio Ghibli (Headed by Hayao Miyazaki) produced some of the best and most memorable animated films. Movies ranging from light hearted ("My Neighbor Totoro") to serious ("Grave of the Fireflies") have been released and generally received a lot of acclaim. I have not seen 2004's Howl's Moving Castle, so this list will probably be updated after I watch it.
Castle in the Sky
No other movie invoked the sense of wonder and discovery as this film had, one of my top 5 movies ever.
Grave of the Fireflies
The only movie on the list not directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Unlike most other movies produced by Studio Ghibli, it is a somber movie about the horrors of war.
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Flying glider and a forest of giant fungus and insects, this movie features some of the most stunning visuals and has a great story.
Spirited Away
This movie is highly imaginative and has some of the most bizarre creatures ever.
Movie Poster
Like "My Neighbor Totoro", this movie is produced with younger audience in mind, however, I found this movie to be highly enjoyable for adults too.
See the full review, "Cute and enjoyable for all ages".
My Neighbor Totoro
One of Studio Ghibli's most popular film, but it aimed a little too much at children for my taste.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

I love Studio Ghibli! Howl's Moving Castle kind of has the same feel as Spirited Away so if you liked one, you'll probably like the other. Grave of the Fireflies remains the only animated film that has ever made me cry. Totally want to check out Ponyo - kind of like the Japanese Little Mermaid. Thanks for sharing!
