Second time last year. Great but not super great.

Not sure what to vote for. I've seen it once but I don't own it yet I'm not opposed to revisiting it.

I thought it was incredible. Animated or not, it should stand as one of the great war dramas.

I've seen it around 8 or 9 times now I think, and the 9th time was just as powerful as the first.

First of all, I want to point out Bill's review which is much better than mine.  Secondly, I wanted to ask if anyone has looked at either of the live-action versions?  They're both available on youtube.

1) Thanks, I do actually think of that as one of my best reviews, and the fact that I have now seen the movie so many times does show that I have a hard time sticking to any proclamations I make in my reviews. :)

2) I never knew they made a live action version, let alone versions, I'm not sure I want to take a chance on those.

Once. I remember liking it.

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

Once, but not because it's too painful for me to re-visit.

Its sits in my pile, wait for the right moment. I think I will just have to watch it and not pick the 'right' moment.
