We recently watched The Cat Returns. One of only two non-Miyazaki Studio Ghibli movies that I’ve watched, the other being Grave of the Fireflies. And the two couldn’t be more different: the latter is very good, but very, very depressing; I honestly have no idea when I’ll be up for watching it again.
Anyways, The Cat Returns was fun, but hardly a masterpiece. Rather slight, which can be fine, but the word “cool” is way overused in the movie. I quite liked the designs of the city and castle; Miyazaki’s locations are wonderful, and you can see some of that in this movie, too.
Miranda’s watched it several times; it’s pleasant enough to have on in the house, so I’m not complaining.
