THOUGHTS: I 'blind bought' this film because I'm a big fan of writer/director Hayao Miyazaki's work, especially his delightfully wonderful film, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO. I quite enjoyed KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE, a pleasant, easy-going slice-of-life look into a young witch's world. One of the cool things about this film is that being a witch is simply accepted by everyone and there are no "bad" witches in this world apparently. No one gets turned into a frog, no world-shattering magical battles or whatnot. Kiki is your typical 13 year-old, who shares the same hopes, needs and dreams as every other girl her age. The voice-dubbing performances are uniformly good. (The late, great Phil Hartman is a hoot as Kiki's haughty pussycat, JiJi). From a technical standpoint this film is yet another jaw-droppingly gorgeous, marvelously detailed Studio Ghibli production. The settings are beautiful to look at; the town in which Kiki settles is an amazing conglomeration of many different coastal cities around the world. The production design is impressive, (the architecture is stunning), the warm color palette used throughout the film is equally rich and eye-pleasing. The animation is still amazing to watch. There's something to be said for the allure of hand-drawn animation. Studio Ghibli product is sumptuous & awe-inspiring in its intricate detail; so real-life looking that at times you forget you're watching an animated feature. KIKI is just an easy-going, light-hearted & fun movie, period. Children both young & old should love this motion picture, with its big heart & morally-minded view of life.
THE BLU-RAY: Another excellent offering from Disney Studios. Top notch mastering and everything looks & sounds terrific. Lots of neat extras are included which add to the enjoyment, especially of you're a fan of the film. This 2-disc release includes both DVD & Blu formats of the film. BOTTOM LINE: While it may appeal to young girls a little more, KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE remains an enchanting, winning film for everyone and for all ages. This charming movie continues the tradition of excellence that Studio Ghibli & Hayao Miyazaki have become known for. 4 STARS
This tend to ranked as one of our favorite Miyazaki movie. The story tells of a young girl's growth and maturing in getting to know herself through a series of challenges. Kiki's world is one of kindness, compassion and understanding, and watching her journey of independence and self-discovery is a joy. She's a lovable character. Much of this has a "slice of life" quality to it. Utterly charming and can easily be enjoyed by anybody of any age.
Once you watch enjoy this movie, other favorites of ours includes Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, My neighbor Totoro and Ponyo, all worth a watch.
