I Saw This


 

So, I can cross seeing Hayao Miyzaki’s Ponyo off my to do list.  While I can’t say that I really understood what was going on in the movie — despite the fact that all the voices were done by English speaking actors, and everything was in English…it sure was fun to look at.  The movie was all traditional, hand-drawn animation.  And the backgrounds were done in colored pencil and pastels which was really awesome.   I’m forced to make the conclusion that the stellar reviews it got from The New York Times, The New Yorker, et al. were based on the fact that the images were brilliant — not the storyline.
