The Best and the Worst of the wonderful Hayao Miyazaki. We mostly discuss Ponyo as it's a more interesting project to breakdown. There's talk about Spirited Away but everyone knows that's good (except for one sour grape). Subs over Dubs losers!!!

During her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts.       

A five-year-old boy develops a relationship with Ponyo, a young goldfish princess who longs to become a human after falling in love with him.       

Each week we take the best and worst films from a filmmaker or franchise and discuss why one worked and one didn't. And we use freakin maths to determine the best and worst, so no arguing. Unless you think science is wrong???...yeah thought so.
