Saw Pom Poko today at a special showing. I believe it was the first Isao Takahata Ghibli film I've seen. Wasn't actually aware of the film until a few days ago but it was a nice film with a good message, and got quite bittersweet.

Incredibles 5

Considering the whooping fourteen year wait between the original and the sequel, it's quite baffling how Pixar's at number five already. I had mixed feelings upon the announcement of Toy Story 4 (any news on that?) but now they really are milking the cash cow. Furthermore, after Disney purchased Lucasfilm, the cross references got rather tiresome. Oh so clever! How many times can you see bear to watch Syndrome paraphrase their villains? I liked Violet's stealth agent arc, but sadly no other members of the Parr family undergo much character development of worth. The "elastic apron" gag had me chuckling, though. Will I watch it again? Possibly, but I can do without.

I reckon that's Fiddlesticks' favourite Ghibli feature, actually.

I know, I know, the tanookis have visible nutz, but I reckon it's the kind of thing you hardly notice after the first few minutes?

In the dub they're called pouches, haha. They do expand pretty massively in certain scenes but often to forms like parachutes or trampolines you don't exactly associate with balls.

It was also an oddly satisfying feeling to figure out a character's VA pre knowing credits - I wondered if a wise elder tanuki character was voiced by Tress MacNeille, as she sounded just like Mom from Futurama. Indeed, it was her.
