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.

Right now, I'm watching the semi-finals of the UK Snooker Championship, featuring Mark Allen vs. Stuart Bingham. About 45 minutes ago, Bingham was in a commanding lead, but now, Allen has fought back to a position where he's only one frame away from winning :O .

It's weird how sharply and suddenly the momentum swings in this game, really. In a "First to 10" match, you'll sometimes get a player who runs away into a 9-2 lead, but then loses 10-9. It's unusual, but not as unusual as it sounds like it should be.

I looove Studio Ghibli movies! My Neighbour Totoro has always been one of my favourites, but that's likely because I loved it as a kid too. I recommend Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle as well! 

The last thing I watched was My Hero Academia!

I used to love Studio Ghibli movies a lot, but got a little sick of them because they would be played on TV all the time every year without fail during the summer in England, and even not watching the movies didn't let me avoid the commercials for them and there's only so many times I can see the same scenes over and over again before they quickly lose their charm. Sad

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
I was iffy on this show from seeing a still shot of the turtle designs, but watching it today in motion the animation for this show is superb and I love the art style. Not sure what the episode was I watched this morning, but the moment where Raphael loses his patience with a little device when trying to open a portal with it and then throws it full force at the wall, only for it to instantly bounce back and smack him in the head, is one of the funniest animated things I've seen in ages! XD

Last movie I watched was Boss Baby, it was really cute & I liked a lot of the movie. I did have a bit of an issue with the ending as you weren't able to see the character's faces when they were older & I take issue with that due to the whole 'Nanny' thing with the Muppet Babies as she only had legs & no upper body throughout the series.

While waiting to get better, I've been watching my DVD of Haruhi Season 2, and finally got to the end of Endless Eight for the second time. Might've missed one episode, but hard to remember what you've watched when you spread it out over two separate days. XD First time I watched five or six of them I believe. Think I appreciated them more, as I was more willing to sit through and notice the slight differences each time.

I think the best part of sitting through Endless Eight is noticing that they actually reanimated and recast all those episodes, individually. I also watched them all in like one-sitting so I know how you feel XD

Didn't watch it fully since I came online after dinner, but caught a bit of Moana tonight. Seemed good from the parts I saw. I just gotta sit down and enjoy the rest!
