Nutty Bites 117: Intro to Ghibli – Howl’s Moving Castle

Nutty Bites 117: Intro to Ghibli - Howl's Moving CastleHowl’s Moving Castle is like if Terry Gilliam directed a Ghibli movie and it starred David Bowie. We loved this film in all of it’s surreal nature and appreciated its art movieness. This for Tek and Nutty succeeded where Princess Mononoke failed.

Nutty Bites 111: Intro to Ghibli – Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Nutty Bites 111: Intro to Ghibli – Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Nutty Bites 111: Intro to Ghibli – Nausicaä of the Valley of the WindNausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is coming a bit out of order thanks to it being shown locally at the theatre. We couldn’t pass up the chance to see it on the big screen with an audience. Originally we had planned to watch all of the Miyazaki Ghibli movies first, move on to Takahata, then watch non Takahata/Miyazaki Ghibli movies, and then go back to Miyazaki’s non Ghibli movies. The chance to see the movies in theatre made us rework the viewing order. We also realized that we didn’t want to have a bunch of sad movies together, so we reworked the order. Mostly in release order, except when we needed to put an uplifting film between two sad ones. There is a link below.

Ghibli Cast Rating SystemWe also clarified our rating system since some listeners were confused by our ratings. This should make our ratings a bit more clear and less insulting to some. (Though I am still insulted at Jason’s Whisper of the Heart rating).

Nutty Bites 108: Intro to Ghibli – Princess Mononoke

Nutty Bites 108: Intro to Ghibli – Princess Mononoke

Nutty Bites 108: Intro to Ghibli – Princess MononokePrincess Mononoke is a great art piece but our panelists debate about whether or not it is a good movie. This was recorded at Balticon 51, the panelists are Nuchtchas, Tek, Jen, Jason, Laura Nicole, and Grig Larson. Sorry if we crushed the heart of the fans, but this panel was divided between loving this movie and not loving it.

Intro to Ghibli, a new regular segment of Nutty Bites and the Talk Nerdy 2 Me Podcasts. Jen & Jason guide newbies Nuchtchas & Tek through the movies of Studio Ghibli. We are starting with the Hayao Miyazaki films in order(ish), just bumping My Neighbor Totoro to the first.  Once we finish those we will hit up the Isao Takahata films, then the Ghibli films without either director, then two non Ghibli Miyazaki films, and we also have some bonus shorts to sprinkle throughout.

Nutty Bites 107: Strong Female Characters

Nutty Bites 107: Strong Female CharactersNutty Bites 107: Strong Female Characters

It seems like Strong Female Characters are on the rise again. Nuchtchas and Laura Nicole are joined by Tek and Jason to talk about it. First of all, why are we seeing a resurgence of the strong woman? Which characters are the most relevant to our experiences? Thanks to the past popularity of strong female representation, society has changed, as a result those characters of the past don’t hold up to today’s standards. We also talk tropes too, especially what we like seeing in female characters, and what don’t we like seeing in female characters? Who are some of your favorite female characters?
