So I’ve decided to go through my Studio Ghibli bootlegged box set in order, and the first movie is The Little Norse Prince AKA The Sun Prince-Hols’ Great Adventure AKA Horus: Prince of the Sun AKA Little Prince Valiant. It was interesting to compare to the later films directed by Miyazaki (as this one was directed by Isao Takahata) and the newer films as well. One thing that really stuck out to me was that a lot of the violent scenes were done as kind of slideshows of stills instead of continued action. Also, many of the characters’ faces seemed to be drawn in extremely different art styles, as if they were all from different movies.
Probably not going to be one of my favorites, but still charming and adorable and entertaining!
A lot of the SK books I’ve been reading recently (11/22/63, Joyland, Doctor Sleep) have been outwardly less horror-y than much of his work and Mr. Mercedes seems to fit into that category. He’s still amazing at portraying the horror that is the fucked up inner workings of serial killers and the like, and he writes a damn good thriller/suspense novel.
With school starting up all too soon (sorry for the reminder) I figured it was a good time for my etsy shop To Boldly Holdto have another giveaway,
