    Great cartoon movie

    A cartoon movie from HAYAO MIYAZAKI, rest assured that storyline would be wonderful, visuals would be absolutely stunning and above all it would be emotional. CASTLE IN THE SKY is a story of a girl from an enigmatic location floating in the sky. Everyone, from gov officials to sky pirates, is after her for their on selfish ends. But, she is not alone ....

    Peril Above.

    *Great animation, good storyline with a "cool" and "neat" protagonist, and the other characters are developed enough for you to enjoy this voyage. This DVD is suitable for 10 to 14 year olds; it has some action violence.

    Very Nice FAMILY Movie!

    Laputa:Castle in the Sky is a very nice movie for the entire family to watch again and again. Younger kids can cheer for the two kids (Pazu and Sheeta), boo and hiss the nasty general and the evil government agent (mushka) and figure out for themselves whether to cheer or boo/hiss Captain Dora and her gang/family of pirates. Older kids will appreciate and enjoy the innocent friendship between Pazu and Sheeta and laugh at the cartoon-like antics of the pirate gang. Adults will really appreciate that there's NOTHING suggestive, R-rated or otherwise offensive to even the youngest eyes and ears. But this movie won't just babysit your kids; it'll give them (and you) something to think about. Miyazaki put a green message in the movie (hint: why did the Laputans abandon their city?). But the message doesn't slap you in the face; you have to look at it a bit to really see it. It might even take a second viewing to see it fully, so let your kids talk you into watching it again. You'll all enjoy it very much. And then go get all of Hayao Miyazaki's other movies, especially Kiki's Delivery Service. I think that's the best on e of them all. I also recommend Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. All are sweet and innocent and a lot of fun. Even disney thinks so; they're the ones bringing them over to America. Unlike many anime movies, you can't tell if the settings are Japanese, American or wherever. And a lot of the story takes place in the air or some other extraordinary setting.

    Odd. And about time.

    I saw this title originally waaaay back in 1985-86 when I caught a sneak preview at a convention in San Jose, CA. Couldn't wait for it to come out on LD. Fast forward nearly twenty years and finally, here it is. Odd to see after so long. At the same time, it is about time.
