Forget it Dracula. I'm with you on the 'Miyazaki is certainly good but what's with the crazy love?' bandwagon, but we won't get any other kind of reply other than 'He's amazing.'

Rumor has it that he really is though.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

I do also hold Bird a bit higher than Lasseter looking purely at their directing careers. I don't consider A Bug's Life and Cars to be up there with Toy Story 1 & 2, but all three of Bird's are masterpieces.

Regarding Miyazaki, he stands out for me because his films are entirely unique. There's nobody else like him, and he's extremely consistent in churning out amazing movies. At least 5 of his movies are in masterpiece territory for me. Nobody else comes close to that without having at least a couple of stinkers.

Also, he's amazing.

My roommates practically watched Princess Mononoke on a loop last year, and I just don't get it. I don't see the brilliance that everyone else does.

Did you see Spirited Away?

This is turning out to be like the Synecdoche discussion.

It's a great film.

Why?

Cause it is.

Nope. Maybe someone should dictate it to me in January.

Haha, sometimes that's all that can be said.
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.
