Well, I've seen Babe and Cats don't Dance from start to finish each a couple times. Babe was pretty cool since they did such a good job of making the real animals look like they were talking.

Cats don't Dance wasn't very good to me, it's far too serious a film. My own preference is for stories that evoke a sense of a better world, not a worse one... Though I make exception for Robotropolis, which is just too cool.


Some of the others I've only seen partially. I only saw the last half hour of Donnie Darko, and was disappointed to find out it was nothing like I had expected. It was a crazy existentialist film with wierd time travel effects. I thought it was going to be like that classic movie Harvey, but with a more sinister rabbity presence.

Speaking of which, I've actually seen Harvey. Have you? It's great when he puts up the portrait of him and the giant white rabbit, then his mother sees it and feints. She feints a lot in that movie. XD

I've also seen some of Pricilla, Queen of the Desert. It was interesting, but it couldn't hold my attention. A friend of mine told me I absolutely had to watch it, so I probably will one day, but I've only seen some of it so far.

The others I haven't seen, only heard about. I have been watching quite a bit of anime lately though. Since the shows I was normally watching are being translated slowly, I've been branching out a bit to other shows. Maybe I'll try Princess Tutu or Azumanga Daioh, if I can find some eps.
Babe certainly managed to get away with a surprisingly dark opening - I can't help but wonder how many kids left with a desire to turn vegetarian. ^_^ Some wonderful moments, like the farmer's dance, but it's that ending which stands out most for me - absolutely magnificent.

DD was a very odd film indeed - despite not having really lived that kind of life, many of the themes rung true nonetheless. I wound up watching it all in one go, which is unusual for me - I'm terrible for watching films with multiple breaks, at least when I'm on my own. The roomie settled back onto his PC meanwhile. ^_^

PT or AD I could help with, once I have some DVD-Rs again, assuming you're all set up for anime fansub viewing. (Typically 640x480 MPEG-4 video, MP3 audio, in AVI containers)

I think I've seen Harvey (so to speak), but it was ages ago. Being a bunny, I suppose I'm obliged to have a copy.. =:) James Stewart was on top form, as ever.
Well I have the VLC Media Player, and it seems to do just about everything. XD

I don't have a DVD-RW yet, for some reason it hasn't arrived in the mail. My dad managed to find one for cheap but I'm starting to wonder if they screwed up sending it, or if they're trying to scam us.

Usually I download anime via bittorrent. The latest bittorrent client is kinda funky though...
