I'm So Tired, I Haven't Slept A Winkkzzzzzzz

I was up pretty late yesterday, and now I'm hitting the coffee hard. Which isn't particularly smart, since that just makes it splatter across my desk.

Last night, after work, I went to see Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi) in Washington, DC. This is the anime movie that was a huge hit in Japan (they say it's the most successful movie there; which is meaningless in and of itself, since Crocodile Dundee was once the highest-grossing movie ever in Australia) and is being distributed to a small (but growing) number of American cinemas by Disney.


I had originally put this poster side-by-side with the text using a <table>,
but LiveJournal's formatting was thrown off by the table, so I moved the poster to a cut tag...

It was OK... Cute... But not the tour-de-force that all the fanboys are making it out to be, since they're too delirious over an anime movie hitting the big screens in America to be the least bit objective. I enjoyed it, but I won't be running out to grab the DVD when it hits the stores or anything. Still, if this does well, it'll embolden Disney (and other distributers) to bring other (and hopefully better) anime flicks to the American silver screens. Sony must be watching SA's box office very closely as they plan next year's cinematic release of Cowboy Bebop: Knocking On Heaven's Door...
