    I fully agree. Just got done watching this and I honestly kept expecting some more conflict to spring up between the 12 witches they mentioned earlier in the film and earwig having to use her charm against them to save her mom, or that the reveal of who her mom was would happen sooner and she decides to go find her. There were a million things I kept looking around the corner for and it just never happened. I also wasn’t a fan of Earwigs personality, thinking there’d a be little growth towards the end but nothing of the sort happens. She’s essential the same from beginning to end, just knows some spells now. Very disappointing to say the least.

    I loved the ending, I hated the abusive way Bella Yaga treated earwig or how terrified Bella was of mandrake. :/ maybe “hey kids, if your parents are abusive towards you and each other just keep manipulating them until things get better” is maybe not the best moral of the story. :(

    6:40 "the lightning is great, its fine" No! Its the whole reason the movie feel souless. No shadow in their face, its just bland. The character color blend into background, no shadow that make it beautiful. Not to mention see the whole background, did you see the tree, and grass moving?! No there are no winds! Background character movement are slow and bland. Compare that to other hand-drawn ghibli movies. You could feel wind blows from the screen, the background so full of life.

    I think the biggest problem with its appearance is the lighting. All of the lighting is soft and diffused, even where it shouldn't be. The whole thing just looks bland and dull and plastic as a result. The animation looks like a half-hearted attempt at making it look kinda like a stop motion film, but it just looks like they couldn't make up their minds with it either way.

    Goro IS talented! He's a really talented architect! He made puppets for the Earwig team and they're lovely and expressive. I think if he were to channel this to animation his strength would be in puppetry/stopmotion, and he could design beautiful models/puppets and elaborate sets. I think that could work for Ghibli, in fact, it could be Ghibli claiming stopmotion for the Japanese animation field again. I know the Rankin-Bass films are technically already Japanese since a Japanese studio did all the stopmotion work, but how many people know that? It's a shame no one has called this out to him, it's such a cool and unique avenue for Goro to explore, even grumpy Miyazaki might have to give a tacit nod.

    Spelling: Hayao, Ha-ya-o Saberspark: "Hayo" I don't think you even tried to pronounce this one correctly. Just say it how it's spelled. A (Ah) I (EE) U (OO) E (Eh) O (Oh) are the Japanese vowels. There is only one possible way to pronounce each vowel in Japanese, and that never changes no matter where the vowel is in a word. Easy. I think it's just so lazy when HUeyers can't take a second to make sure they're pronouncing a name correctly before putting it in their script multiple times. Welp, here I go listening to you say "Hayo" for 8 more minutes...And you'll probably never see this, but maybe someone else saying "Hayo" will. Also, fun fact: In the Japanese version, the band is just called Earwig in English. But Earwig's name isn't literally Earwig. Her name is Ayatsuru (アヤツル), and the head of the orphanage splits it up as Aaya Tsuuru (アーヤ・ツール). Ayatsuru (操る) is a verb that means "To manipulate, To control". I think it's more clever than just calling her Earwig.

However, i can understand why people built high expectation for this movie but clearly this genre is actually for children. so let it go, big kids :) hahaha and also Goro needs his own name without his father shadow. he is great director.

    There have been bad Ghibli films before. Remember, one had spent five minutes on a pineapple. But I can see how this one kinda fails, and the 3D models just don't ring with the Ghibli style. Looking at clips, it just doesn't have that gentle feel that is burying the eventual disaster. Also, what the hell Hayao?

    Tales from Earthsea (also made by Goro) is another Ghibli film that was poorly received. I actually quite like the film because it has an eerie and uncomfortable feel to it. Horror is my favorite film genre, so maybe it's just me and a couple other people who feel this way, but the unsettling nature of the whole film really makes it stand out amongst the other Ghilbli films. I always give it an honorable mention when discussing Ghibli films.

    i really believe that goro would be really great at whatever he set his mind to if he didn't have the fear of never comparing to his dad. i think that fear holds him back and prevents him from being who he really is, and it stifles his talent. clearly he is talented and works very hard, but i think he lets the expectations put on him get to his head. when you feel there is a ceiling you can't break, sometimes you don't realize your full potential. i hope he can express himself for who he really is one day without any expectations............ this all being said, if goro continues working with ghibli, i sincerely hope he does not take the 3D animation route. i'm not a fan of 3D animation in almost every case (except shrek. i love shrek.)

    1:29 it was tales from earthsea, miyazaki left because 1) it was actually bad 2) goro got the director role through nepotism (he was asked by producers to direct it) when he hadn't had any other role like animating, storyboarding, designing characters before, he was only a producer and he's an architect not an animator, so miyazaki thought it was really wrong that he would go on to a major directing role without having to prove himself before

    The problem with Goro is that he does not really want to be in the movie business but for some reason feels obligated to do it despite fully knowing he will always be compared with his father. He just does not WANT to to movies and that is clearly visible in his projects. He should go back to architecture (he studied that) and be creative there, because that is at least something he wants to do. He very often stated that he does not want to do it but he does... and when Your soul is not in the movie making process the result are soulless movies

    I haven't seen the movie so I'm only commenting on the aesthetics I'm seeing in this video, but the problem lies in that the characters look like stiff plastic puppets, and the lighting is dull and essentially non existent, making the characters look even more plastic and unrealistic. Even stop motion animated movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Corpse Bride feel more real even though they literally use puppets because the lighting is so good and the way the characters interact with the environments make them feel like they're actually alive. Here, everyone just looks dead. Hair doesn't move naturally, light doesn't reflect in a convincing way, so it ends up looking like a slightly better version of Food Fight. I know there's potential for a good 3D Studio Ghibli film. Just look at the video game series Ni no Kuni. Those games are gorgeous and it showcases what it would look like if you combined 3D with Studio Ghibli style animation. So it is possible, but this ain't it chief.

    Goro is, quite simply, not a director, he is in reality a SET DESIGNER or architect who mechanically sees the world as legos. This is, in a way, the lego movie as designed by an engineer. It is soulless, vapid, boring, awkward and odd looking. This is a landmark of "magic" as interpreted by a buildor. But it must be said he made some great looking buildings like the good dozer he is. Tales FES is just as bad, painful to watch, utterly soulless buildor drivel.

For a first 3D animated movie I think they did a amazing job and it should had been understandable why theres no magic portals or special effects, their skills in 3D are still limited while all these other amazing 3D movies are from a great length of experience

    The saddest part about this is that Studio Ghibli obviously had to invest a considerable amount of money into building a 3D studio, even if the result wasn't that good, so they're unlikely to go back to 2D. It'd be flushing all of that investment down the drain.

    I think they tried to do it in the Claymation style but fail to follow through with details. The character models might be intentionally designed to not look organic to give them the feeling of puppets, but they shouldn't have used that same "clay" texture for many of the other things. The clothes, for example. And maybe characters' hair too (depending on personal tastes. Many actually like it the way it is). To emphasize the puppet style, you'd probably want to give their clothes the magnified version of cloth textures, and the surrounding shouldn't be as refined as it is now because it's 3D and not actual clay. With real materials you can make it as refine as you want and people would only be amazed by the craftmanship, but with by default flawless CG you'd want to create imperfections on objects to give them a touch of realism. I can feel Goro's struggle in this film, because I too am struggling on things like styles. It's not easy to make a style work. His problem is that he should perhaps start with short films first to test the style before making a whole feature film out of it.

    The reason the film ended so abruptly is because the author passed away before the book was finished.

    I'll preface this by saying I've really liked Goro's films, feel bad that his father seems like an unsupportive dick to him, and will probably continue to watch his stuff because I genuinely like it. That said. I'm only skeptical about doing 3d animation because of the backgrounds/landscapes. It's VERY hard to make beautiful stylized landscapes in computer animation because computer animation tends to lean more realistic than artistic with backgrounds. Miyazaki films always stood out to me because of the backgrounds and how they evoked so much but idk if I've ever felt that way about a computer animated film. I'll be honest even like blue people Avatar didn't do it for me with the background because I just... don't think hyper-realism is anything special.

    I’m most upset cuz we didn’t get a single full music number like the cover hinted at with Earwig holding a mic. I thought it was gonna be a message that you are not forced to become what you’re born as: “a witch” but can become what you wanna become: “a musician”

    the first thing I think of when I hear the words "Studio Ghibli" is beautiful 2D animation. I'm sure for many it's the same and I feel like people are going to be a lot more judgemental of a film if it doesn't have that classic Ghibli look to it, will be interesting to see how things play out if they keep up with the 3D

    The adaptation would work well as a serialized one off cartoon show instead of a theatrical release. Miyazaki pulls a plot twist as this is a pilot of an actual cartoon.

    Hayao actually helped with Poppy Hill. I think he only trashed Earthsea

      I'd say Earthsea was pretty good despite the fact that the pacing and story is a bit weirdly confusing- although I may be a bit biased over the soundtrack and art, haha- I like From Up On Poppy Hill more than Earthsea though.

    The movie kinda looks like a game. And to be honest, I haven't even watched this movie yet. But there is a lot about it that interests me, but maybe its because everyone and everything reminds me of a video game. It would probably make an interesting mystery and magic game honestly.

    Regarding the character designs, I think that it's less off and more 'not exaggerated enough'. The linework on the character models match Ghibli's 2D style nearly perfectly and that's fine when the purpose is to trick the audience into believing that what they see isn't flat; 2D pretending to be 3D. However when something is already 3D, those tricks don't work unless you're going for 'a plastic toy' look. 3D already isn't flat so that particular illusion isn't needed. What is needed is to trick the audience into believing what they see isn't a bunch of shapes pasted on top of a computer generated model. 3D Lupin succeeded cus' its shapes were exaggerated further than 2D Lupin. It was harder to look and just see the shapes pasted on top. The models in Earwig look unfinished because their features weren't exaggerated appropriately enough to create the needed illusion.

    By far, this is the WORST Studio Ghibli film, and not because it's computer-animated. It feels so underdeveloped, unfinished, and so entirely forgettable that it's practically insulting to say it's from the same studio as Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. Literally 70% of the movie takes place in this magical house and NOTHING INTERESTING HAPPENS. No substantial character development, an escape plot that goes nowhere, and one of the most painfully rushed and least satisfying endings to any movie I've ever seen. It deserves its low Rotten Tomatoes score, and I take no joy in saying that. Do better, Goro.

    it seems like they're trying to animate a 3D movie in a 2D fashion, all of the movements and facial expressions would look better in their normal and established 2D style, this feels very experimental and unfinished

    I really feel Goro got potential as a director and the main thing that pulls the film does is 100% the stiff hair and the lack of detail to faces and thier stiffness, even when Earwig gets angry her facecolor doesnt even change much. My highlight honestly was when she was laughing her ass off and you could just see the mouth and nose, nothing else, thats excellent emotion! If they went more overboard with emotions, made the hair more fluid, i honestly bet the film would have been a blast! (also give a statisfying ending) These seemingly little details are what is natural in 2D but honestly a rarity for 3D/CGI and that REALLY needs to get into peoples head. It just feels plastic and compared to Lupin it just doesnt feel alive
