I was just messing with ya, about Harry Potter.

I don't think I've even heard of Ponyo.  As it happened though, I enjoyed the Star Trek film too.  I didn't go in with super-high expectations, and it was a competently executed action flick (IN SPACE!) with just enough plot material to stave off hordes of Trekkies looking for any reason whatsoever to rubbish the entire thing.

No, you definitely got me on Harry Potter.  I do remember defending it to an extent when everyone else here was crapping on it, haha.

Ponyo is the newest Hayao Miyazaki movie.  I don't know if they send them over to that side of the pond, but they tend to be released here by Disney.  He's done Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and a few others that I can't recall.  It's an adaptation of the Little Mermaid and has some of the most gorgeous animation I've ever seen.
EoC, you are the bane of my existence.

EoC doesn't make creepy.

EoC makes creepy worse.

Hayao Miyazaki is a really good filmmaker, I still haven't seen Ponyo though.

Ah, he also did Howl's Moving Castle and Porco Rosso.
Of the ones I have seen Porco Rosso is my favourite, though.
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

I am so fucking excited about seeing that movie! My favorite kinds of movies are either stupid funny, or have aliens and explosions.

My favorite are helicopter explosions, but that's too much to ask, I expect.

I like people explosions, myself.

Yes, but you are a people person.
