Ponyo Demotivational by Oblivion69 Ponyo Demotivational by Oblivion69
During the Nostalgia Critic's latest review of Ponyo, he stopped the video at this moment and encouraged to make a caption out of this because he was curious about the results. So here's the joke because I was told to caption it. NC sure had the balls to review the great Miyazaki-sama's work. Good thing he got beaten up by angry anime-fans for claiming that Howl's Moving Castle is worser compared to Ponyo. So yeah to any non-anime fans out there who are reading this: DON'T. EVER. CRITISIZE. THE WORKS. OF HAYAO MIYAZAKI!!!!!!

I disagree criticism is the root of improvement, if we cant see our flaws in our work then we will never mover forward. So here are some criticisms for you, worser is not a word, and the fact that you said good thing he got beaten up makes anime fans look bad, instances like that are the reason people think anime fans are crazy. One more thing, Hayao Miyazaki is a professional, how do you think it reflects on him when his fans are beating people critics up? I love Hayao Myazaki`s works but everyone has their right to an opinion whether it be positive or negative.

I don't think it's such a good thing that he got beaten up over it, it contributes to the view that anime fans are unreasonable and obsessive. I love Miyazaki, but I don't think that anything is beyond criticism. I mean, he wasn't even calling Howl's Moving Castle bad! Just that it wasn't as strong a film in his opinion. That's a pretty mild thing to get mad over, and if it were me it would just encourage me not to talk about anime anymore.

People get way too gung-ho about anime, it gets really embarrassing and is why I don't bring it up in public. Crazy fans give it a really bad name.

Miyazaki's a great filmmaker no doubt. But a lot of his movies share a common weakness: a plot that kind of meanders and forgets to go anywhere for about forty minutes until the very end. Of his movies I've seen, Howl's Moving Castle is probably the worst offender. It starts off really strong in the first and second acts, and then in the third act Miyazaki left all the plot threads alone for a while to do some pretty imagery. I knew something was wrong when I found myself asking "when is this going to end?"

Miyazaki is a good filmmaker but he is NOT perfect.

Truthfuly, Ponyo as abit weak for Miyazaki, not in terms for story, but in terms of art..it was abit too simple for something expected of Miyazaki. I'm not an anti-anime person (in fact I'm a narutard) It's just sadly I was expecting more from him..but then I saw the new movie he made..now THATS Miyazaki standards.

I agree the Miyazaki's work is phenomenal, but to be that doesn't give people the right to beat the hell out of the guy. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I will admit, I enjoyed Howl's Moving Castle less than the other's and I enjoyed Ponyo less than Howl's but I wouldn't say they sucked. I just think that Americans ruined the movies a bit when it got Disney-fied for whatever reason I will never know. >.>

Nah, an opinion on a movie is nothing to beat someone up over. It's just a movie. I don't give a crap what anyone thinks of Avatar, I still like it. I just don't tend to mention it in company because so many people like to trash it. Fans can be so embarrassing about that sort of thing concerning any franchise...maturity seems to be in short supply sometimes. I hate Twilight with a passion, but I'm not about to club someone I know over the head for liking it.

What I don't understand, though, is why you'd think that Disney ruined the movies somehow. They do have the original Japanese versions on the released DVDs of the features, so it's not as though everyone's forced to endure the dubbing if you don't like it. Other than that, I don't think Disney did any serious editing to the movies. It's just dubbing. So if they seem ruined now, they probably started out that way...or maybe I'm wrong?

Haha first off, we're on the same boat for Twilight. It's the worse peice of literature and film work known to man, in my eyes. But I put up with it for my gf.

However, it's not necessarily that Disney itself ruined it, it's that since everything that Disney is, is family oriented. The movies could have been a bit more realistic, in a sense like in the older pieces where there involves some type of bloodshed, it's much less or none at all because Disney doesn't want kids to see blood in their films. The imagination is phenomenal and most definitely encouraged to continue being brought out in the films, however I wish it could be done without always having to take a movie that was, we'll say PG-13 and having to bring it down to rated G only because it ruins scenes and choice of diction and that in turn could make the films a lot less enjoyable for some viewers than if it hadn't been tampered with and only simply made them English dub.

Ophelos Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2012
Haha, you're a really patient boyfriend, that's for sure.

The fact that Disney likes most things to be family oriented is true, but the fact that they leave out most bloodshed isn't true. Not all the time. Tangled was a very recent one that surprised me with a bloody scene near the end, and of course Disney does release movies, particularly live action ones, in PG-13 ever since Pirates of the Caribbean became big. And especially since they adopted the Marvel franchise.

But when it comes to Hayao's recent movies, I don't think Disney had much of a hand in his movies' rating format. I don't think they put restrictions on him, because they don't really have to. Since Princess Mononoke, his movies have had pretty innocent, lighthearted themes that don't really need bloodshed to highlight intense or perilous moments, which I think he does of his own accord. Although Howl's transformation into that bird creature was relatively gruesome.

I never heard of his movies once being PG-13 and then being edited, aside being dubbed, for appropriate family content, but I might've missed something. Princess Mononoke was released as it was, though I can't remember if that was before or after Disney began to release Studio Ghibli's movies, and that was pretty much as gruesome and bloody as I've ever seen Hayao's movies...that is, unless you count Grave of the Fireflies. I haven't seen that movie in years.

I've only ever seen one movie from Studio Ghibli that I didn't like, but it wasn't a Hayao Miyazaki film. I just couldn't get into Tales From Earthsea for anything. =/

:iconophelos:
Ophelos Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012
I was the same way about it. Ironically enough, Tales From Earthsea was directed by Hayao's son, Goro Miyazaki, who was always more interested in painting scenery than animating. Him and his father argued over the Earthsea project and the fact that Hayao thought that Goro wasn't ready for directing a feature length film, and I think that tension between them showed up in the film...the characters were very stiff and lifeless in comparison to what you'd be more accustomed to seeing in one of Hayao's movies. That's one thing I admire about his movies; even if the plot is hard to follow, at least the characters have their own vital, and often even fun spirits.

It's kind of a shame, the animation in Tales of Earthsea was fabulous, Goro definitely has his father's talent...it just lacked soul. And an easier to follow plot. But it was based off a book series that people are already pretty lukewarm over, if I understand it right.

:iconmastermichi:
MasterMichi Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012
I'd noticed that it was directed by Goro, but didn't know what his exact relationship to Hayao was. And I agree about the beautiful scenery, and stiff characters. Aside from the pretty things to look at, the only other thing Tales had in its favor was good voice acting. I was pleasantly surprised to hear Cheech's voice...

Normally if one of Hayao Miyazaki's films do not make sense the first time around, you can normally embrace the oddities in it the second time. I have tried watching Tales several times, and have pretty well given up on gaining any interest in it. A shame, really. I'm incredibly fond of dragons, so it seemed quite promising...

:iconophelos:
Ophelos Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012
Oh yeah, Cheech's voiceover was a pretty quirky but fun surprise, I have to admit. But the voice actors just couldn't bring life to an already pretty lifeless script, unfortunately. The dialogue was just flat as a pancake.

And you're absolutely right. Usually you can overlook nonlinear plotpoints or confusing scenes and even begin to embrace them at another time with Hayao's work, because his characters are charming, the dialogue is fun, and the stories are so colorful. Even Princess Mononoke, as serious as it was, had funny little moments and an incredibly colorful cast of characters. But Earthsea had a bad combination of nonlinear plotpoints and a totally barren, confusing script with dead dialogue. And also uninteresting, vague characters. You weren't exactly prompted to want to know more about them, even Sparrowhawk was promising, but so bland that I didn't care if I knew more about him or not.

The dragons looked cool at least, the design was pretty neat, but it was hardly worth watching the whole movie several times for, sadly.

My repeated attempts to watch happened before I found out it wasn't a Hayao Miyazaki work. I was baffled at my inability to gain an interest in it, and was wondering what on earth was wrong. Given that he wasn't the director, it makes a little more sense. That doesn't make it any less disappointing though.

Just goes to show that a pretty picture doesn't always make an interesting movie, I suppose. =/

Too true. It was eyecandy, the scenery especially was amazing, but like I said, it had no soul. But that's what happens when you don't love the story. You have to love your story to give it life. I think the fact that Goro and Hayao didn't see eye to eye for pretty much the whole production (until only the very end of it, if I remember right) just made the story too bitter for Goro to follow through with properly.

Probably would've turned out better if they'd worked together, instead of Goro going alone on it.

Do you have any idea why they didn't work together on it? It seems like it would have made more sense for his first directing work to be a collaboration...

:iconophelos:
Ophelos Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012
I think the argument itself, and family pressures, were the primary reason. Goro never really wanted to get into animation (there's a creative Achille's Heel if I ever knew one) in the first place, but Hayao, being so into animation and knowing Goro had talent, tried to motivate him into giving it a try. Goro became ambitious, I think to get out of his father's shadow, and wanted to direct a whole feature length film by himself. But Hayao felt he wasn't really experienced enough in animation and directing to do it.

So throughout the whole production, they hardly spoke to each other, if at all, until the very end. Hayao saw the movie and ended up liking it, saying it was honest if nothing else. But it might've been his way of calling a truce while, at the same time, recognizing the promise in his son's work.
