"He looks like Cthuhlu's overweight cousin..."

After about a month, I finally got a chance to watch Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away". Most reviews of the dub have been good, but I was glad we had the Japanese DVD, since I'm interested in actually hearing the Japanese. It was a delightful surprise to see how much I actually understood, because I haven't watched a modern Japanese film in quite some time.

"Spirited Away" is a fantastic movie. If "Alice in Wonderland" was originally a Japanese fairy tale, it would have been this movie. Beautiful, enchanting, and worthy of its fame as Japan's highest grossing movie. It was the perfect movie for a dark and stormy night, too.

And if you do watch the movie, you get to see who we think Cthuhlu's cousin is, hehe.
