Spirited Away: movie review

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family 

Rated: PG

Year of Release: 2003

Director: Hayao Miyazaki

Summary: During her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts.

Review: I will start by saying I never saw this movie as a kid, so I don't have any found nostalgic memories of Spirited Away. Although this is not the first Studio Ghibli film I saw. That will go to My Neighbor Totoro which I saw a long long time ago as a little kid. I faintly remember scenes from that movie. How I know it was that movie was because it had that big weird creature that can fly.

What holds the greatness for this movie up is the art and music. The spectacle is amazing when watching this movie for the first whether that be if your young or old. The plot is hardly there and that doesn't bother me as long as the characters are interesting.

I don't like how the witch suddenly said she has a sister. It's stuff like that in a story that gets me. I don't like how something comes out of the blue.

Spirited Away is a good movie. It is great in the spectacle. The story a little lackluster. Again I don't have any nostalgia for this movie.

This movie will be good to show and introduce kids to other types of animation.
