Journey to the West

by wfgodbold

Sure, Hayao Miyazaki might be a raving environmentalist wacko who prefers getting his power from coal (I guess?) to nuclear power, but that doesn’t mean the man can’t direct a good movie.

And Princess Mononoke is one such good movie; like many of his other films, it pits man against nature, but Miyazaki is no James Cameron, and this is no Avatar. The humans are actually real people, and not caricatures of the military-industrial complex.

The acting is good; Disney sprung for real actors, instead of just using office interns to record the English dub. Joe Hisaishi’s score is excellent, as always.
