Atom User Reviews for Earwig and the Witch
Kudos to Goro Miyazaki! I am a late boomer but have always loved the Studio Ghibli films, every since I saw Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle. I'm hardly the targeted audience. This was a very good film. Every time I thought is was going to be predictable it veered off in an unexpected direction. I became very invested in the characters. I enjoyed all of them for different reasons. As an adult, there were some things I didn't quite relate to, but that's my problem, not the film's. The soundtrack is great too and right up my alley musically. I could say a lot more, but I'm trying to avoid spoilers. This isn't a review so much as a recommendation that Ghibli fans of any age should see it.
This movie was a beautiful train wreck with probably the catchiest song ever. The visuals weren't the worst but could have been better and the story was awkwardly adapted, leaving more questions than it answers. Definitely felt very unfinished but I will be watching this movie again and again like a curse.
Great story line
Great movie very much hope they continue it soon!
This is a great movie. the animation is smooth, the music is great, and the cast fits well. However, I do feel that the movie's ending was a bit rushed and abrupt.
What you would expect from a ghibli movie. The new 3DCG was an amazing experience.
Weird cut off at the end hour mark, like they didn't finish the movie. Left me disappointed.
