"These days, there are angry ghosts all around us - dead from wars, sickness, starvation - and nobody cares. So you say you're under a curse? So what? So's the whole damn world." - Jigo
Superb artwork and music that plays your heartstrings are of course a huge part of Miyazaki movies, but I also love the blurred lines in the concept of good and evil. Things are not as black and white as as they often are in western animations, villains are just hurt beneath their icy masks and heroes bleed and make mistakes. But there's always a certain sense of hope and positivity in the stories. Absurd scenes also, but that's what makes the films so great! Miyazaki's films often convey a message and clearly speak against acts of war and the destruction of nature, so they're not just the average, shallow happily-ever-afters. And that's why, to me, they beat Disney.
