The Borrowers, eh? I haven't heard about that until this list, that's gotten me rather excited.
Has anything Miyazaki created been anything short of beautiful and epic?
BTW, you're missing Grave of the Fireflies (I know he didn't direct it, but it is Studio Ghibli, and he therefore had at least a bit of involvement).
How was Tales of Earthsea? I heard really bad things. Wasn't it Miyazaki's son, and didn't he cut off all involvement in the picture, declaring is son not yet ready to direct?

... and it takes me two years to reply. Ouch, my apologies Darktremor, hah. So, at this point I'm sure you've seen "The Secret World of Arriety," which at the last update of my list (two years ago) was simply put as "The Borrowers." It wasn't one of my favorite films... but I liked it.

"Tales from Earthsea" is a different story. I think I should definitely view it again. All I remember was... long. Holy cow it was long and slow. Almost painfully slow.

I'm still trying to find a connection between Mr. Miyazaki and "Grave of the Fireflies." True, it is Studio Ghibli, but that was due to Isao Takahata's directorial involvement. Studio Ghibli's led by both directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, along with producer Toshio Suzuki. I'd like to find some miniscule reason to put it on the list though. I should probably just make a damn Studio Ghibli list, I'm easily a huge fan.
