Princess Mononoke ()

This $20 million animated adventure/fantasy quickly became the highest grossing Japanese film in Japanese film history (making $150 million in Japan during its first seven months). Set in the 14th century, the ecology-themed epic was directed by Hayao Miyazaki whose previous films were acquired by Disney for U.S. distribution plus other territories. Princess Mononoke depicts a mystical battle between Animal Gods of the forest and humans during Japan's Muromachi Period. Young Ashitaka receives a fatal infection after a demonic wild boar attacks his northern village. Seeking a cure, he sets out to locate the deer-like god Shishigami. Along the way, he sees the rape of the Earth by a mining village. The constant plundering by the village has brought the wrath of the Wolf God, Moro, who attacks the village along with San, a human who was raised by the wolf god. She communicates with the nature spirits -- which is why she is called Princess Mononoke ("spirits of things"). Ashitaka wants these opposing forces to co-exist, and he hopes to bring peace between San and the ironworks owner, Lady Eboshi. However, he is thwarted as higher powers, intent on killing the Shishigama, intrude, and a battle erupts over the future of all nature. Bhob Stewart, Rovi Hide synopsis

Defective Disc

by SUSAN J on Aug 13, 2011

I bought this movie knowing it is a great movie, however, to my disappointment the disc skips and sticks throughout the movie. Such an annoyance when you truly want to watch this film. Movie wise it is great but of course this is my opinion even though there are plenty to agree to my claim. If this disc would have been perfectly functioning I would have given it all five stars.

An excellent movie. However I would have enjoyed it more, if it had less gore, blood, and violence.
