Damn, beat me to it Starsky. Prince of Egypt's a pretty good traditional film too, good choice Cinco
Anyone said Ghibli?
This is not just my favorite animated movie, but much likely one of the best (maybe THE) movies I have ever seen. It's so warm, so sad, so poetic. It made me hate war more than anything else, and all that avoiding the overdramatized tirade or a dishonest and manipulative simplification of things. Great stuff.

Grave of the Fireflies is one of the movies that's not just good for an animated movie; it's a great movie period. saying it's the Schindler's List of animated films does it a disservice; Grave of the Fireflies is a million times better than Schindler's List, no contest.
Grave of the Fireflies is one of the 5 best films I've ever seen, animated or otherwise.
I'd probably say The Prince of Egypt as well. It's an extremely beautiful, atmospheric movie. It's probably one of my favorite soundtracks too.
iron giant +
grave of the fireflies has been on my must-watch list for a long long time. I should end that soon.
I'd say either the Iron Giant or Fantastic Mr. Fox. They're both incredibley underrated animated films. With Fantastic Mr. Fox, I just love most everything about the movie, from the animation style to the humor. I haven't seen Iron Giant in a while, but I know it's one of my favorites.
I haven't see Grave of the Fireflies, I guess I need to move that up on my Netflix queue.
Edit: Haha, Ryan o and I posted almost the same thing.
how did this happen
get the fuck out of my mind
Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, uh, your opinion, man.
Is it superior compared to 'Spirited Away'?
Those of us who keep hoping Miyazano will duplicate the story perfection of Spirited Away may well end up disappointed with everything he does for the rest of his life. Howl's Moving Castle was not originally his project, & he wasn't first choice to direct it. It is not a daring film for content or design, & the animation is not above average but is high-end commercialism.
The story, adapted from a novel by children's fantasist Diane Wynne Jones, is more than commonly captivating but still much more suited to children than adults, & as a "family" film the adults will merely bare it, unless already anime fans with their aesthetics button turned down to the eternal-kid setting. But for actual kids it will certainly exercise their imaginations.
However until I see Spirited Away this film is definitely my favorite animated film I've seen.
And Ponyo? How does Ponyo hold up compared to 'Spirited Away'?
(the place where I buy DVDs has cut down on anime, unfortunately )
I checked this one out a month ago or so, It's quite good but not great. I like the bright colors and style, but the story moves kinda slow I guess. Just throwing it out here: what do you think of this movie?
My favourite is Spirited Away, haven't seen it in a while but it really had a big impact on me. Paprika gets the second place, love that story.
Guns don't kill people. Physics kill people!
great movie, one of the best combinations of the personal and the political i've seen in any movie.
Couldn't agree more on "Prince of Egypt". Utterly amazing film.
I like all the Ghibli movies I've seen, too.
Thanks to CousinMerl for this great sig!
I always liked the Secret of Nimh, it was like my intro to dramatic animated movies as a kid, and also the 2nd care bears movie heh heh...
I've seen Hotaru no Haka/Grave of the Fireflies a few times, I don't think I can watch it anymore because I'll just break down crying towards the end. I felt so bad for Seita, nothing mattered to him anymore at the end.
