Shame Grave isn't on earlier in the day as it deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.

Just watched Grave of the Fireflies and was very moved. Is this a one off in being a more adult orientated drama?
Wished I'd watched more of them now as I only saw the start of the dubbed Kiki's Delivery Service then kind of gave up/got very ill.

Grave of the Fireflies is by far the most severe of the Ghibli films, but several others are just as adult (if not more so) in terms of subject. Only Yesterday (a young woman returns to her home town and recollects her youth) and Ocean Waves (about a college romance) are as wonderful and heartfelt as the rest of Studio Ghibli's output, but much more talky and mature in tone.

That said, I don't think that the other Ghiblies are any more tailored to children than adults - they are the definition of family films, and something like Kiki will offer different rewards to children and adults, neither less valid or more full than the other. It's telling that Grave of the Fireflies was released as a double bill with My Neighbour Totoro, perhaps Ghibli's most pre-teen friendly film - there's something within for everyone.

I can't believe I forgot about Fireflies last night! Grr

I've managed to miss every single one now, although I caught the start of the first fireflies, I decided to wait for the next showing

One assumes it'll just be the season that's been shown, repeated. I like the fact they give the DUBBED and SUBBED versions an airing.

quite rightly^^

I saw porco Rosso the other week with the michael keaton dub. I do find some of ghiblis films unbearably twee (kiki's, Totoro etc) but Porco had more pace to it, which I liked, and setting was pretty original too.

Hopefully they will show the subbed version of Castle in the Sky as well. I missed that one. I have really enjoyed all the films they put on. I watched both dubbed and subbed.

The dubbed version of Laputa is weird - Iknew they'd recorded more music for it (cos Americans apparently don't like silence in films), but it seemed like the entire score had been rerecorded. The only problem is having James Van Der Beek portray a ten year old boy...

The film was re-scored. Actually I would be interested to hear the new soundtrack as I've only got the Japanese DVD which has the old dub (in mono!).

The irony is that the original cut of Laputa features the best score Hisaishi has done for a Miyazaki film (In this fan's humble opinion of course).

I believe it was Hisaishi that rescored it, just adding some music where Disney wanted it.
