HBO Max is here, and while I have actually been fearing the methods AT&T will undoubtedly mess up HBO, I in fact like a lot about the new service. The app is far better to search than Netflix thanks to its curated highlights. But the genuine standout to me has actually been that the service has the majority of Studio Ghibli’s brochure of movies, which have not formerly been readily available to stream.
I enjoyed My Neighbor Totoro for the very first time in years over the weekend. The story is easier than I kept in mind (maybe too basic!), however the story is a lot more lovely than I kept in mind, too. It truly encapsulates what Ghibli would continue to do so well in later films– construct out worlds that feel genuine, charming, and expansively wonderful at one time.
My associate Sam Byford composed a starter’s guide to Ghibli movies if you’re simply diving in. I have not seen the majority of the films yet, and this has me thrilled to see more.
