Miyazaki (or Studio Ghibli) Movie Night!

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Jeff's place

At the advanced table today we were talking about how much fun it would be to set up a Miyazaki movie night. Somewhere I have the DVD for Spirited Away, but I'm sure I can access almost any of his movies through the UM library as well. Snacks, maybe order pizza? BYOB. What do you guys think??

We need a date (Friday or Saturday night would probably be best) and a location. Any suggestions?

    Thanks Susan for bringing the sushi! It would be great if everyone could bring either a food or a beverage. I will provide soft drinks, gyoza and a baked good of some sort. Please post what you'll bring so we don't all bring the same thing!

    I LOVE Miyazaki/Ghibli movies, but I'm actually attending another animated film at the Detroit Film Theater that day! Sorry to miss out, but if there is a 'Part 2' I hope to be there...

    I'm in! I loved "From Up on Poppy Hill"--didn't know it was Studio Ghibli at the time. I actually ordered it from Amazon, but it hasn't arrived yet. I think I ordered the Japanese version, not the dubbed one. Anyway, I would love to see whatever you guys want to show. Thanks!

    August 2, 2013

    • Yukiyo

      This movie seems interesting, too. Please bring it if you get it.

      August 5, 2013

    Oh I am exited for this!! Thank you Jeff for hosting! I will for sure be bringing some Japanese-y snacks!

    I've hosted a movie night before, and we always watch a movie after the Umeshu making. I have a good sized finished basement with a flat screen w/ sound bar and a popcorn machine. I was thinking about having another for a scary movie like 'Ringu' or 'Pulse', so maybe I'll wait until after the Miyazaki one, maybe in the fall/winter.

    1 · July 29, 2013

    • Heidi

      Scary movies are always best in the summer. ;)

      1 · August 3, 2013

  • Curtis P.

    I would love to attend, but I would need to know the date beforehand before I can commit to anything. Also, I could bring “Howls Moving Castle” as well as “Princess Mononoke” if need be. Also, something else that people might be interested in is the DIA hostes a animation and arts showing on Saturdays, a few weeks back I went and saw “From up on Poppy Hill” though they did a dubbed showing. The link is posted below incase people are interested in checking it out.

    Zannen, I wouldn't be able to host this Friday, but could possibly do it on August 10th. Unfortunately I will also be gone during the first weekend of September. Is there interest for the evening of Saturday, August 10th?

    1 · July 31, 2013

      Actually the 10th may be good for me too. I'll throw it out as a date.

    Unless we do it this Friday (the 2nd, which I know is really soon) I won't be able to come until the first weekend of September :(. Can I put down the first weekend of September, just to have something on the calendar? Don't let that stop you guys from meeting in August though if that works better for everyone else!

    July 29, 2013

      I can't do it this weekend. My birthday is this weekend.

    Sounds Fun. Any Friday/Saturday night works for me as long as the location is not too far away

    Have you guys seen Future Boy Conan by Miyazaki? Its really old, but really good

    July 29, 2013

    • Yukiyo

      I vote for this movie because I haven't watched this one yet. I want to watch something I haven't watched before.

    Tom and Jeff, thank you for offering your places to host!
    For the movie list right now I have Nausicaä, Porco Rosso, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke.

    Other ideas include Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Ponyo. Once we have a date picked out I'll see if I can't make an online poll and we can vote to pick one.

    I could host this at my townhouse. Living area seats around 15 with more room on the floor. Any other takers?

    1 · July 29, 2013

  • Masahiro K.

    Would love to see "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" even though it technically isn't Studio Ghibli. I recently saw "Porco Rosso" after not seeing it since I was a child. There were so many things that I didn't notice then, but noticed now as an adult. I feel like it would be the same for Nausicaä, so I am excited to see it if it is available.

    July 29, 2013

  • Susan W.

    Sounds like fun! Either Friday or Saturday night works for me.
