Ponyo


Steak and I have been meaning to watch Ponyo, the Japanese animated film produced by Walt Disney Pictures, since it came out in the United States last year. We finally had the brains to rent the movie from Netflix and we finally had the time to sit down and watch it last night.

What an awesome movie! The story of a beautiful little goldfish who escapes from her overbearing father's underwater lair (think Nemo) and discovers the human world through the eyes of a little boy named Sosuke (think Little Mermaid). In order for Ponyo to become human forever and restore the balance of the sea, Sosuke must pass the test of love. 

The movie is beyond adorable and is perfect for a rainy night. It also has an all-star cast that includes Betty White and Tina Fey. Go check out the movie today!

  2. BTW If you aren't familiar with the director of this type of anime...(Hayao Miyazaki)... look up Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro. All excellent movies from him.
