30. March 28/31, 2010 - Ponyo (2009)

I know that everyone seems to love Miyazaki's films, but I don't get what is so special about this lame version of The Little Mermaid. Why does Ponyo, in goldfish form, have a human face and hair? If she could turn herself human at any point, why bother fighting with her father about it? How is her father humanoid anyway? Human Ponyo is incredibly irritating and, while the animation is pretty (and hand-drawn, which you all know I love), it feels simplistic. Just rent The Little Mermaid instead - it's better-looking, it has Oscar-winning music and Sebastian is always a good time!
My Netflix rating: 2 stars
