30 hand-picked films. A new one every day
The magical inhabitants of a rain-forest fight to save their home, which is threatened by logging and a polluting force of destruction called Hexxus.
While Avatar bears resemblance to Pocahontas & Dances with Wolves, this film has a lot more similar plot points and characters between the two.
This movie is seared into my childhood. From memory: "The name is Batty, logic is erratic. Potato in a jacket, toys in the attic. I rock and I ramble, my brain is scrambled. Rap like an animal but I'm a mammal."
Whilst this is probably pretty rubbish, it is part of my childhood and I regularly freaked myself out by watching on video. It is definitely better than Avatar.
IM SO COOL WITH MY WALKMAN.
Dated music plagues this bright film that contains a useful lesson, but is far from the eco-friendly grandeur and perfection of Miyzaki's films.
Classic, pure & simple.
I could watch this movie over and over and over again.
Seen long ago.
