The magic was missing..,

This review is from: Tales From Earthsea [DVD] (DVD)
This is an incredibly well animated film, just what you'd expect from Ghibli, but it just did not hold the same magic that most Ghibli films has done. I felt it was quite western in its storyline which may have something to do with it. The first Ghibli I saw was Princess Monoke, shortly followed by Spirited Away, and I was enchanted from the very start. I've seen several more and loved them all, but I just wasn't taken with this one. 3 stars for the usual quality but I probably won't watch it again.
