The Wind Rises — MOVIE REVIEW

Hayao Miyazaki’s “The Wind Rises”

The Wind Rises is supposedly the final film from legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, and it is a good one. He has brought us amazing animated movies such as Spirited Away (2001), Ponyo (2008), Princess Mononoke (1997), Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), and My Neighbor Totoro (1988). This movie is no different.

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.
It’s that time of year again when people rush to their nearest theater or video store to try and catch up on all, or at least most of the nominated movies. Every year I fill out a couple ballots. I do this because there are different ways to predict the outcomes. You can go off of your own personal picks; what you think really earned the awards. Then there is also the way of trying to predict what the Academy thinks. That may change a few of your picks. Maybe knowing how much they love Jennifer Lawrence or hate Leonardo DiCaprio will alter your choices. Or you can do a mixture of the two. Have some of your picks be off of your own personal judgment and others taking what the Academy thinks into consideration.  Continue reading
