Review: “Porco Rosso” Soars High on Blu-ray

by Ed Liuon February 6, 2015
Hayao Miyazaki’s Porco Rosso fits chronologically and thematically between the pre-teen Kiki’s Delivery Service and the very adult Princess Mononoke.

How does one review a movie like Kiki’s Delivery Service? Classic doesn’t even begin to accurately describe the movie. Think of any superlative adjective and you could probably attach it to Kiki’s Delivery Service. I think “Among the All Time Greats” is a good starting point. Is it Ghibli’s magnum opus?
