Today we have a Guest Blogger, Vinnie, who is blogging his review on the 'PONYO' Film on DVD. Take it away, Vinnie!
"Ponyo is a little goldfish who was found by a boy name Sosuke, age 5. When they become friends, she wants to become a human because it would be hard to be friends with a human, if you were a fish. Being the daughter of the King of the Ocean makes her different from any other goldfish; she has the magic of the sea at her use. Soon through their friendship, she gets determined to become a human. Becoming a little girl, ponyo returns to Sosuke's home. With having a magical fish princess out on dry land, the earth becomes unbalanced, causing the moon to come closer to earth making the oceans incredibly high.
The parts I found interesting were the parts where it was making you think, as with in the beginning how Ponyo got caught in a jar while she was dodging other garbage and debris being shuffled up. And also the parts where it would make you dream, as with the water turning to fish, and with Ponyo becoming human.
There were hardly any parts that I disliked, except for when I felt there were too many things going on at a time that you couldn't focus on everything, later causing confusion. If you could connect the dots on those parts though, you would understand it.
This is very much so a great movie with enough things going on to keep you entertained. It would be enjoyed by all ages, as most Disney movies are, but there was one part that was thrown in that was more adult appropriate. Overall, it was pretty good, and well done."
My thanks to Vinnie for watching the DVD with us, outlining the film, and then blogging about it!
