5.0 out of 5 stars Goro Miyazaki delivers a heartwarming tale Aug. 31 2013
By Steven Aldersley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Fans of Studio Ghibli won't have had much chance to see From Up on Poppy Hill. It enjoyed a brief limited release in theaters a few months ago, but the Blu-ray release on September 3rd will allow many other fans to check it out. I've seen it twice over the past two days and I urge Ghibli fans to buy the Blu-ray.

From Up on Poppy Hill looks like a Studio Ghibli film, and packs quite an emotional punch, but don't expect to see the fantasy element present in most of the studio's classics. This is more like Whisper of the Heart than Spirited Away or My Neighbor Totoro. The film is populated by good people doing good things, and there's not a villain in sight. It will appeal to anyone who remembers their childhood, school, young love, and friendship. Like most Ghibli films, it's full of great messages for us and our children.

Umi Matsuzaki (Sarah Bolger) is an eleventh-grader, living in 1963 Yokohama; she takes care of her family and a few boarders while her mother is away studying in the US. She cooks and cleans while trying to maintain her good grades, and is a responsible young woman. One day in school, she meets Shun Kazama (Anton Yelchin). He performs a daredevil stunt to try to gain support for his campaign to save a clubhouse used by him and his friends. Umi and Shun form a friendship that is the heart of the film, but the story isn't quite so simple. This is not just a tale of teen romance; it's the story of a group of young people pulling together to achieve a common goal. Some of the twists are unexpected, and considerably more complicated than those found in typical animated fare.

One of Umi's habits is to raise flags on the pole on her balcony to signal to ships passing in the harbor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Content is fine but if you are a purist.... Sept. 8 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This disc is from a company I have never heard of. It is not a Disney release. Technically, the picture is extremely good, and the sound is a DTS-HD soundtrack. However, there is one thing they did which is a deal breaker , and that is that certain translations of on screen text have been hard subbed directly onto the picture and cannot be removed. This occurs on the Japanese track with subtitles too.

This is obviously geared towards a younger audience and not to anyone who enjoys animation as an art form. You may not be bothered about hard subs, and this disc may be acceptable. In this day and age though, these translations could have been done on a subtitle track and have been removable. It looks like a bad decision was made, especially when you have an option to view the original credits in Japanese with the Japanese logo in the film

This is one of the better Ghibli releases of recent times, and if you want to watch this on blu-ray then this is all you can have right now. It is still worth watching in this version, but it could have been better if those translations were removable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! Dec 30 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a great movie for all ages with a heartwarming plot and a great message. The animation quality is top-notch and the English dub cast does a great job. It doesn't share the fantastical elements of other Studio Ghibli films but the grounded tone fits thematically with the setting and plot. Overall this film is a must-watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice slice-of-life feel... Dec 27 2013
By Jess
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I own many and really enjoy all the Studio Ghibli films I've seen ("Whisper of the Heart" and "Porco Rosso" probably being my favourites). "From Up on Poppy Hill" was a wonderful addition to my collection and had a nice slice-of-life feel to it (sort of akin to "Whisper of the Heart"). The film has a nice relaxed pace and a lovely art style. I'm very glad to have this added to my collection. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars It isn't perfect but it is a good movie Aug. 4 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A very gentle, nostalgic movie. This one and several other, e.g. "Totoro" and "Kiki", give me a similar feel, a nostalgic journey back to simpler times or when one was young and the world was something to explore.

It isn't perfect but it is a good movie.
