Shrimp City - November

Phantasm (1979): Great movie! Classic story without silly cliches. Great gore too. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Kiki's Delivery Service (Majo no takkyûbin) (1989): Sweet! Not my favorite Ghibli though. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

My Neighbor Totoro (Tonari no Totoro) (1988): My favorite! I'm not sure what to think about it being based on the Sayama incident theory though. What do you guys think? ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi) (2001): So incredibly good. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Howl's Moving Castle (Hauru no ugoku shiro) (2004): Also incredibly good. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

The Secret World of Arrietty (Kari-gurashi no Arietti) (2010): Such an amazing and sweet sweet movie. I loved it so much, they thought of every tiny little beautiful detail! The only thing I missed was the crazy japanese vibe I love so much in all Ghibli movies, it seemed so very western. This is obviously because it's based on the english book The Borrowers, but still. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Pom Poko (Heisei tanuki gassen ponpoko) (1994): INSANE may be the perfect word to describe this movie. It may be one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. ♥ ♥ ♥

Ponyo (Gake no ue no Ponyo) (2008): Mmmm.. Maybe this is my favorite instead of My Neighbor Totoro! I can't choose! Anyway, it's beautiful, funny and just so adorable. I love the under water stuff and I am so totally naming my kid Sosuke just so I can yell SOOOSUUUUKEEEEE (diiiinnerrrr) all day. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Laputa: Castle In The Sky (Tenkû no shiro Rapyuta) (1986): Looove the robots! The rest of it is nice too but not the bestest of Ghibli films. ♥ ♥ ♥

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009): I'm still annoyed with how fast they went through this one and how many awesome stuff they left out but! Love it anyway! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010): My favorite! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011): My other favorite! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

The Big Year (2011): Dumb but funny movie about birding, gotta love birding. ♥ ♥ ♥

May (2002): Not so sure what to think of this one. Needs a rewatch I guess! ♥ ♥ ♥

30 Days Of Night (2007): One of my favorite vampire films! Great concept and awesome teethy dudes. Ending kinda sucks though. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Aliens (1986): Not as amazing as the first one but still pretty damn amazing! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Zookeeper (2011): This was actually sorta bad but I laughed so hard at the voice of that giraffe (I may have cried) that I can't bare to put it with the movies-you-don't-have-to-watch. And I like animals. Je weet. ♥ ♥ ♥

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005): Finally! I've read the first book of the series (after putting it off for so long, loved it though!) so I thought I could finally watch this without hating myself. I wasn't dissapointed! I like the books better but still! Can't go wrong with Sam Rockwell and Alan Rickman anyway. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

The Descent (2005): I'm claustrophobic so the stuck-in-a-cave scenes kinda freak me out, but I guess that's all that's scary about this movie. Still very well done and a great watch! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

You don't have to watch these: Death At A Funeral, 11/11/11, Final Destination 4, Dear John & Infestation


Missing Mirjam's films? Me too. Check out her blog!


  1. Ah so many Ghibli films. I have yet to see Pom Poko, but it does look weird.
    So I looked up that thing you said about My Neighbor Totoro and it being based on the Sayama incident theory... and now I'm kind of sad about it. But I guess atleast something good came out of it? A cute movie? I don't know...

  2. Dear John is echt vreselijk hè? Haha! Alle Harry Potter films heb ik een paar maanden geleden in een week tijd gekeken, het blijven geweldige films!

  3. Haha PomPoko was zo raar. Ik en mijn vriendje gingen die kijken. Nou, vijf minuten in de film: Aw arme wasbe...HEEEEUHHHH BALLEN. Hahaha. Nou ja dieren krijgen ook baby's.
    En ik heb ook een raar gevoel over Totoro! Ik vond de film fantastisch, maar na die theorie kan ik er niet meer heel vrolijk naar kijken. Dat onbezorgde kinderwereldje is dan weg. Jammer...
    And I hated HP 7.1. Het einde. :( Nevar forget.
    Leuke lijst! Ponyo is mijn favoriete Ghibli denk ik. Hammuuuuuu!

    1. Hahah ja die ballen he :') zo een malle film.
      En ja wat totoro betreft, ik zou het eigenlijk wel leuk vinden als het een beetje een donkere onderlaag heeft. Maar dat Sayama incident is wel héél naar.
      Ja Dobby :( :(

  4. Ik vond My Neighbour Totoro niet zo'n toffe film, heel mooi, maar heel raar einde. Toen ik las dat het gebaseerd was op de dood van het meisje ging ik de film heel anders bekijken. Nu vind ik hem veel toffer dan voorheen =)

  5. Een Ghibli tribute!
    Fijne films weer!

  6. So many Ghibli films! Love them all :) Phantasm is AWESOME!

  7. Over de Ghibli film, Totoro - om eerlijk te zijn zou dit me niet verbazen als het echt zo is. Japanse dingen (strips, films, verhalen etc) staan erom BEKEND dat ze vol met verwijzingen en symboliek zitten - dus eigenlijk is het best wel tof. Ik vind het persoonlijk heel erg interessant, hierdoor vind ik de Ghibli films nog vetter. Nu ben ik ook benieuwd naar de rest van de Ghibli 'geheimen'. :)


Thank you so much for reading my little blog and taking the time to comment! ♥
