I've watched a lot of anime in my life and I have to say the more of it I saw, even in my first year of real exposure, the more I saw of it, was just medicore animation, mixed in with nudity, sex and violence. Well Stupio Ghibi is usually pretty good, high above most anime. I've seen most of their films and the usually represent a different style and feel then most of the TV and OAV trash you see. So what can I say about Spirited Away? Well I can see why it won an Oscar. Nobody in Hollywood has brains enough to figure this one out, so they gave it to it. At it's best Spirited Away is a sick, gross and perverted twist on both Pinochio and Alice in Wonderland. But since this is from Japan, it HAS to be in a Bath house. Yes this proves that EVERY animation company in Japan is perverted to the max. :) I think it almost deserves an Oscar for not showing any boobs trough the entire movie, but it goes one more and shows a have naked Chihiro riding a dragon. (This makes all the petifiles happy I'm sure.) Of course you're thinking, hey that's art. OK hide from the facts, that's up to you. But when you watch enough anime, you'll see my point loud and clear. Is the movie any good? Well, it like so many of these films feels like a foriegn film. It drags with no real purpose, or anything to show where the plot could, or might go. It just sorta stumbles along. Alowing any character to be evil one min and good the next, without much reason, or cause, unlike Alice in Wonderland. And all these characters are either extra gross, or extra fat. The movie is OK, for what it is, but it's really nothing special like Dreamworks spirit and lacks the story telling and adventure of Treausre Planet. If it was made 15 years ago you would have found it on Sunday afternoon TV and that's as far as it really deserves to go..
