  • Excerpt: Even a prolific animation studio like Ghibli can turn out a lesser effort. Hiroyuki Morita's THE CAT RETURNS was my personal least favorite Ghibli movie (at least until this), but that film, simplistic and shallow as it was, seems to have much more accolades than 2006's TALES FROM EARTHSEA arguably...
  • Pros: "Hare and some of the vocal performances.", "Gorgeous animation and music"
  • Cons: "Forgettable characters", "Confusing storyline", "Uneven acting in both languages"

  • Pros: "Okay fantasy on a generic level"
  • Cons: "It's not really Earthsea though"

  • Excerpt: I am a huge Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki fan and when I heard Ghibli where releasing another film I couldn't wait. The DVD I got was from HMV and was a special edition which had a beautifully illustrated cardboard sleeve and 4 postcards from the film so that was a bonus.
