My weekly column on the Criterion Collection’s Eclipse Series will publish tomorrow at 3 p.m. EDT, Noon PDT. This week I’m reviewing Kurosawa’s No Regrets for Our Youth. Here’s a shortlink, but it won’t work until the article is published. Thanks!
I just came here to comment with my new post, but it looks like my blog did it for me! Can you believe together we reviewed 12 Studio Ghibli films and NOBODY overlapped? Incredible!
Hello! I’m joining the Blogathon, too. Here’s my entry for Sunday:
This post is about a connection between Hayao Miyazaki’s movie Ponyo, and the 1963 Toei Doga movie, Wan Wan Chushingura, which was the very first movie Miyazaki worked on. Let me know what you think.
And if anyone needs a banner for the blogathon, feel free to use the one I created. It’s a scene from Horus, Prince of the Sun
Here’s Pussy Goes Grrr’s contribution! Thanks! http://mendthiscrack.wordpress.com/2011/03/21/gross-horror-and-pleasant-anime-two-tastes-that-taste-odd-together/
This took far longer than I intended.http://cine-fille.com/2011/03/21/hirokazu-koreeda-so-yong-kim/
And late, last, but I hope not least, my own contribution to the blogathon, about a child’s journey with a celestial battleship and train…
So… what’s the post count? =D How much is YAM donating?
I believe the final count was 63, but non-YAM it’s 55
