Does anyone know when Toxie 4 is supposed to be coming out? A friend of mine and I were in it as retarded students, and we haven't seen a frame of it. And it was shot two years ago. If anyone knows, please e-mail me. (And the shit gag in the first ten minutes was hilarious to watch film. That was suggested by a fan on the website)

Laputa is good and all, dont get me wrong. But my favorite(and I am ont the only one) Miyazaki film is Nausicaa: The Valley of the Wind, which was released years ago under the name Warriors of the WInd and had all the characters names changed in it. When will Disney get ahold of the entire Miyazaki empire and release that one? Probably never considering the violence in it. Ass.

I can tell I'm gonna be spending the next 5 years trying to track down this sumbitch. That Millenium Actress thing sounds good too.

Koji Morimoto directed "Magnetic Rose." The IMDB credits the talented Satoshi Kon with writing the screenplay for the first segment of _Memories_, which both adapts and expands Katsuhiro Otomo's original manga story.

I expected the Millenium Actress review to far far more efusive than that. It was by FAR the best movie of the day and it looks like it got the shortest review. But then again, I wouldn't even know what to add to this review! How do you describe something like Millenium Actress, how do you describe a movie like that... it's nearly impossible to make any synopsis except "Chiyoko Fujiwara relives through memory the events of her own past, as well as that of Japanese cinema", which is what Moriarty did. That one sentence summarizes nearly the WHOLE movie, and I find it impossible to add anything to make it any more meaningful. This movie is not so much about the plot than about the *telling* of the story. The events in the movie are structured in a dream-like order, which make the events mere vehicles for the ideas they carry. So how do you describe a movie which isn't about events but which is rather about a pure concept? *I* sure don't know. I thought it was only because I'm not a very good reviwer, but it seems that Moriarty can't do it either. Or maybe he's just not as impressed as I was because he's not the animation freak that I am.

After that AI review, I thought maybe you and would never see eye to eye again, Moriarty. Glad to know you and I still agree on some things. I hope you're right about the DVD, since DVD wasn't a format covered by the old deal with Ghibli. And god I hope they kick everyone in the butt with the Nausicaa redub. That old '80s dub/re-edit was a sin. Here's hoping the Nausicaa manga becomes a high profile phenomenon in the US this decade--hey, Lord of the Rings was out long before it got all that attention from college kids in the '60s!
