    Descriptions and more information.

    Also it might be worthwhile turning the title to "What's your top 10 Anime movies" to include everyone.

    I don't really love enough to put up 10, so I'll list the 5 I love most (in no real order).

    1. Cowboy Bebop: The Movie

    2. Spirited Away

    3. Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society

    4. Appleseed

    5. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: The Movie - Endless Waltz

    All the movies have been selected for story, characters, plot, animation, and music. And I will ping @Noodle because these movies have zero-fanservice of the obnoxious kind, the few scenes present go with the plot and are handled tastefully, and Perfect Blue's nudity is actually fan-disservice which absolutely no-one can feel the least perked-up about.


    1. Millennium Actress - Because this is the only animated movie ever which has made me shed real tears, not TTGL adrenaline tears, but real tears. Gold.


    2. Kara no Kyoukai 5 - Paradox Paradigm - A girl who can see death, 3 powerful mages, One gruesome experiment for a noble cause, the one victim who got away, a trap, an examination of the very concept of free will, And the single greatest mindfuck? The design of the building where it takes place, because it is so fucking possible to make that kind of building. Paradox Paradigm really takes the series from an exciting action-fantasy to a large scale philosophical questioning which includes the viewer as much as it includes the cast.


    3. Cowboy Bebop: Knocking on Heaven's Door - I sincerely believe that Spike was at his coolest in this movie, more than probably anywhere else in the anime. Rare case of anime based movies being good. (Shudder at the thought of those Bey-blade, Dragonball movies)


    4. Perfect Blue - Dark, twisted and downright scary, this movie is a must-watch for every Satoshi Kon fan, and for others in general. Satoshi Kon's first work is also his most mind-numbingly brutal. It dabbles with insanity, and bubbles over with claustrophobia and loneliness. One of his most moving films.


    5. Spirited Away - After the disappointment of Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away made a huge impact on me, and I finally realized what Miyazaki was famous for. Great film.


    6. Ghost in the Shell - The Movie 1.0 - The single most badass thing ever done by an anime character. No Seriously. And this is the movie which inspired The Matrix. While I would have loved to put this higher up on the list, I can't because the effect is somewhat lost on someone who does not know bits of the anime, AND THAT OPENING THEME will give you the chills once you realise that its a wedding song


    7. Paprika! - Making dreams cool since before Inception. The twist isn't much, the plot is probably the weakest from all of Kon's offerings, but the animation is clinical. And the opening :)


    8. Kara no Kyoukai 1 - Overlooking View - The first KnK movie was amazing, did everything right as an introduction, and made me fall in love with Ryougi Shiki. She is one rare character whose charm increases after the mystery surrounding her is cleared. ufotable have always made amazing stuff, and this is no different.


    9. The Girl Who Leapt through Time - For giving me the greatest fridge horror moment ever. For real. And for being an interesting & brilliant movie. Although a tad-bit predictable.


    10. Tokyo Godfathers - Funny and a delight to watch, the movie is definitely the most benign of Kon's movies. I love it for its light-hearted drama and the characters, though not especially memorable, are well-crafted.


    I have not seen Grave of the Fireflies, don't call me out on it.

    I do not like Miyazaki, and I have seen almost all his movies.

    And I have made a conscious effort to keep my fanboy-ism for KnK to a minimum, and have tried to list movies that would stand up on their own, without the support of the others. Still, 2 movies made it, so yeah GO WATCH KARA NO KYOUKAI !! (my intense need to shout that has been fulfilled.)

    P.S. - Go watch some Satoshi Kon movies That man was a genius. @--Jack--

    You know, while we have 'Top 10 anime' thread, we do not have 'Top 10 anime movies' thread, so this one here is legitimate, but I do wonder. Why do opening posts on both of them provide nothing at all? No proper introduction, no nothing. And what's this with "My Top 10 Anime Movies"? Do you want people here to share their favorites, or you just stumbled here at random and decided to just say what you personally like, and that's it? I really do not understand this...

    Been there, done that. Too busy with other things lately to keep up with the good ol' baby sitting and stuff. Just too swamped to care right now.

    http://graphics.nytimes.com/images/2005/09/02/arts/02mind.583.jpg Tekkonkinkreet, Mind Game, Redline, Colorful and Tokyo Godfathers are my favourites. The first three being my favourite movies so far, animated or not.

    http://www.nova-cinema.org/IMG/jpg/mind_game-2.jpg Excuse me for not following the Top 10 format.

    @Kirn She joined the forum yesterday, and is evidently not that familiar with the formal way of creating threads on this site. I'm sure you could have figured that out, thereby holding off the stingy attitude.

    Why would I? And how being new excuses you from being slow? And she is slow. All this was pointed out in the first reply. 7 minutes after the thread was made. I don't see any changes.

    New people who can't be bothered to look at other threads and the introduction sitckies first before making threads on their own are the problem here. It is all laid out for them, accessible right from the frontpage. Instead they jump right in with all their enthusiasm, and usually screw up the basics.

    Being new is no excuse for disregarding all the helpful introduction threads, rules and FAQ before screwing up. There even is a sodding guide these days, stickied right at the top of the frontpage! You can't miss that shit.

    @Kirn Yes she is slow. But I don't see how that's a problem. She will correct it when she gets the time and/or want to do so.

    A pretty naive way to look at this. I don't even see many regulars going back, fixing their shit, let alone new users. It is almost more likely that they'll make a thread and never go back and look at it than that they'll actually work out the thread's kinks.

    While I appreciate a certain amount of optimism, I've been around far too long to share any of it on this.

  14. #646212013-10-15 17:19:27Kirn said:

    Hence the "and/or want to do so".

    Which translates into being ignorant, lazy or too arrogant to do things right, hence I can say whatever I want.

    This is in no particular order because it's kind of difficult for me to say that I'm more fond of one of these movies than another.
    1. Spirited Away
    2. Howl's Moving Castle
    3. Porco Rosso
    4. From Up on Poppy Hill
    5. Yobi: The Five Tailed Fox
    6. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

    8. King of Thorn (Manga was better but the movie wasn't bad.)
    9. A Letter to Momo
    10. The Cat Returns
    List subject to change as I watch more movies or remember movies that I have watched before.
