A good entrance into the Studio Ghibli films. Enjoy, Nightingale. I still need to see quite a few others myself.

News or rather part of the parade going on around 11AM today on TV. Before that some Green Arrow episode Friday evening.

Watched Huntsman Winter's War last weekend. Screw the reception it received, yes wasn't brilliant, but I enjoyed it.

I watched "Kiki's Delivery Service" last (my first Studio Ghibli film).

Honestly, I don't think it's a masterpiece or anything, but it is oh so incredibly charming. It's hard to watch it without going "awww" every three seconds and, for me at least, that's also a sign of quality film-making. Really impressed by this product and will continue on with works by the same studio.
I agree with this. It isn't anything amazing, but the charm is what makes it such a good watch. I find that with most Studio Ghibli movies, they're either a masterpiece or just incredibly charming. A few such as Arrietty don't manage to hit either of those notes, but fortunately they're the exception to the rule.

I watched two more since posting that: Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro.

I have spent the last seventeen years hearing nothing but great things about the first film, with multiple sources claiming it was the definitive traditionally-animated film and a must-watch for everyone even slightly interested in animation.

I fought tooth and nail against the idea, since I couldn't believe such a thing existed, but I finally caved in and gave it a watch.

...To say I'm blown away is the understatement of a life time. It's almost giving me an existential crisis, it's so good.

Unfortunately, songs aside, I got largely bored by Totoro. Seems like it builds up to no delivery.
When leaves have fallen.
And skies turned to grey.
The night keeps on closing in on the day.
A nightingale sings his song of farewell.
You better hide from her freezing hell. ~ Ice Queen, Within Temptation.
