"Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream it takes over as the number one hormone. It bosses the enzymes, directs the pineal gland, plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to Film is more Film." - Frank Capra

Wait, what? You rate it 4.5 but "didn't think much of it"?
Lol that's what I'd give to my all-time favorite animated film. It's weird seeing the rating systems of some people when you compare them to yours...

31 is WAAAAYYYY too low for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

We're talking about the very first Disney motion picture here.

31? Way too low.
Kind of agree here. Although I had it low on my list, I expected it to be higher. It is THE classic Disney film.

I had Nausicaa at #11 and Akira was in the 26-30 zone. Both are spectacularly animated and action packed, but I felt the former was more coherent.

Watched Akira in time for the countdown but didn't like it enough to vote for it. Haven't seen Nausicaa

You laugh, but my third choice was Nausicaa.
Uh-huh. Sure.

I haven't seen either of these movies. I'm rather confident that I won't enjoy Nausicaa, given that I didn't care much for any of the other three Miyazaki films I've seen. I probably won't bother with it.

Akira is a maybe, but who knows when or if I'll ever get around to it.

Nausicaa is middle of the road Miyazaki for me. But I have an appreciation for it and I can see why people would like it. I prefer 5 other Miyazaki's over it.

Miss Vicky, where was Cagliostro on the list? It'd be interesting to know how close Miyazaki was to that clean sweep.

I'm not answering any questions until the list is complete.

Nausicaa was one of the first movies I watched for this countdown, and I thought at the time that it was a definite for my list. It didn't end up happening but I think it's a great movie.

Akira was just ok for me.

Akira was my #1 and an all-time favorite that i have watched countless times, i was pretty Guap about it in High School. Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind was my #12, not my favorite Miyazaki but certainly good!

Akira is fantastic, although it's one that I appreciate more than I enjoy for the most part. It's probably my favorite body horror film.
