The circle is now complete and just in time for the Last Jedi. The Culturezoo team tackles the final act of Revenge of the Sith and give our final thoughts on the series as a whole.
On today’s Culturezoo Levi, Rosalyn, and Zach cover act 2 of Revenge of the Sith. Does this film finally break our and become the shining exception of the terrible prequel trilogy or does it crumble into mediocrity? We certainly have our opinions…
Back after a long absence, Levi, Roz, and Zach finally dive into the final film of the Star Wars prequel trilogy: Revenge of the Sith. In this episode we cover the first act from the opening to the end of the space battle.
Ranking an artist like Miyazaki’s work is an inherently stupid endeavor. But nobody said we were geniuses. So without further ado, we present Levi and Rozalyn’s rankings of the Miyazaki films.
Note: We don’t include The Castle of Cagliostro for some reason. We really should have discussed it though. I guess we kind of forgot about it and when we remembered, it was too late to go back and record a podcast about it. Too bad. It’s such a great movie.
After a two month delay, which included bouts of sickness and trips across oceans and continents, Culturezoo is back to cover the last Miyazaki film: The Wind Rises. The Summer of Miyazaki has poetically turned into the fall and then Winter of Miyazaki. This is one of his stranger films and somewhat of a departure from his previous work. Rosalyn digs deep and comes up with some thoughtful insights.
For those of you who made it through this miniseries, thanks for hanging with us. We have one more short Miyazaki recap after this, which will be out next week. Then we’re back to an old favorite of ours: The Star Wars Prequels.
The Summer of Miyazaki has turned to fall and we discuss his penultimate work, Ponyo and this time around we’re joined by fellow Ghibli-fan, Sadie Hartmann. Where does Ponyo rank in the films of Miyazaki? It certainly an amazing artistic achievement but does the story hold up to his other work. Our answers may shock you! (Or they may not.)
Well, better late than never. Work and sickness once again conspire to make this Episode in the Summer of Miyazaki late and actually miss summer altogether. Nevertheless, we had a great time discussing the later Miyazaki film, Howl’s Moving Castle. This one seems to rank a little lower in some Ghibli fan’s estimations but what did Levi and Rosalyn think about it?
