Btw thanks for the thread Spurgeonryan, made me check my amazon cart and ended up buying 4 new blu-rays ugh.
Microcosmos, Adventures of TinTin, The Artist and Grave of the Fireflies.

Finally a new release of Grave of the Fireflies. I looked for that one for years and it was always out of stock or over $70.

You know ever since my 80's voting thread I have had no idea whatsoever what you guys are talking about this movie that I have never heard of before. I did check it out back during that thread, but at this moment I still have no idea and remember nothing that was told to me about this mystery movie "Grave of the Fireflies".


I guess I should check out the dvd section at halfpriced books. You would think I would have seen it in my weekly VHS search at these stores. But I have not.


I enjoyed tin tin, a little to foreign for me, but so so much better than Chipmunks! Stay away from the Chipmunks! Have I mentioned that to anyone before? Especially the third one!!!...!

If you do check grave of the fireflies out, please PLEASE watch it with Japanese voices. The english ones suck and can almost ruin the movie.

I do  not speak Japanese.

But I really enjoyed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon even though it was subtitled, so this should not matter either way. Although if it is on VHS and I find it I would imagine that it will be subtitled anyways.

I do not speak Japanese either, but you'd be doing yourself and the movie a great disservice by watching it in English. You'll understand if you watch it.

Same with Akira, much better in Japanese. And you get the best soundtrack that way on the blu-ray release.
German movies are also better with subtitles, Das Boot, Das leben der anderen and Lola rennt aren't the same in English. It does help that I can understand a bit of German, Japanese hardly anything beyond hello and thank you.
