I’ve seen 31 out of 53 films. I’ve seen all Miyazaki films. I was just surprised I saw South Park on number nine and there’s no Aladdin or The Lion King or even Finding Nemo. Lists are really subjective noh?



  1. Nice to see Persepolis on the list.

    A bit surprised to know that Miyazaki’s latest movie wasn’t included.
