Italicized Totoro because that's what TSPDT says, but I'm willing to change it to something else if someone gives a convincing argument to the contrary.

Also if someone wants to PM me some good representative quotes, some about him and some by him, I'd place them in the main post.

you know for some reason, i think tsp might be right. Totoro I'd red and it's also probably the most culturally recognized of his acclaimed films. I'd actually like to hear opinions on the matter from Miyazaki die hards.

On another note, Ponyo is up high on my rankings for his films. That movie just captured a certain magical atmosphere that I rarely see in animation.

Yeah we need three tiers, because really, all of his films deserve a bold at the very least.

Also, Howl's Moving Castle is not more acclaimed than Laputa or Kiki's, probably not Ponyo either, Porco is his most obscure film but it's still highly acclaimed.

When we start using 3 tiers this is how it should go.

1st tier: Totoro, Mononoke, Spirited Away
2nd tier: Laputa, Kiki's, Nausicaä, Ponyo.
3rd tier: Howl's, Porco, Cagliostro.

This guy is my favorite director period.

We are using 3 tiers in Directors. We're not in Artists just yet.

It certainly is. I prefer it to Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, despite it's shitty ending.

I still haven't seen Howl's or Ponyo.

Mononoke and Spirited away are both top 20 films of all time for me, it would have to be fucking perfect to beat those, my expectations definitely aren't that high for it. But it's impossible not to have high expectations for anything this guy does.

Castle of Cagliostro: 7
Nausicaa: 9
Laputa: 9
My Neighbor Totoro: 9
Kiki's Delivery Service: 9
Porco Rosso: 8
Princess Mononoke: 10
Spirited Away: 10

I still need to see Howl's and Ponyo, but I'm pretty much convinced this guy will never make anything less than a 7.

I know that there are too many bolds, but I honestly think it should look like this:

The Castle of Cagliostro (1979)
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986)
My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)
Porco Rosso (1992)

Princess Mononoke (1997)
Spirited Away (2001)

Howl's Moving Castle (2004)
Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (2008)

Maybe not Ponyo bolded, though.

I don't think there are too many bolds. The idea is to bold all the films that have succeeded better than average in terms of acclaim, there's really not a Miyazaki film that doesn't fit that profile. Except maybe Cagliostro, which is still quite fucking good. Not a bad film to have be considered your worst.
