I still need to watch a lot of their movies. And rewatch a few that I can't quite remember, like Mononoke.

I remember, years and years ago, Cartoon Network (in the US) did something they were calling "A Month of Miyazaki" where, every Saturday night, they'd play a different Studio Ghibli movie. I think that was the first time I saw any of those films.

My all time favorites are Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away. I've seen them both several different times. Spirited Away is just so beautiful. They both made me cry. I remember crying when Chihiro was told to not look back as she was leaving. Howl's Moving Castle made me cry because it's just a hell of a love story. I cried when Howl went all crow and was protecting Sophie. I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff.

NOW. I liked Grave of the Fireflies but by god that was the most depressing animated thing I have ever seen in my life. It made me cry a whole lot too, but those were pure tears of sadness.
