I finally got to see Ponyo this weekend and loved it... and actually, the english dub was just fine.  I think Disney usually does a great job getting voice actors for the Ghible dubs.  The only goofy part is the song that plays with the credits.  It is the most obnoxious and laughable song I've ever heard at the end of a movie.

Outside of that, Ponyo was just awesome.  I had a big stupid grin on my face through the whole movie.  Go see it.  Go see it as soon as you can.  You'd be dumb to skip seeing it on the big screen.  Very dumb.

You dont like the Ponyo theme tune? I hear it Japan, when I first heard it I hated it, like the Totoro theme, but it does grow on you. Check out the ponyo suite on dailymotion.

It is a film which has you grinning from start to finish. I love how Ponyo just wont be stopped! Grinning It makes me smile.

I'm going to guess you didn't hear the song I heard.  I think the music during the movie was fantastic, but when the end credits roll there is a song that came on with little American kids singing about Ponyo and it is the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long time.

Now Playing: King's Bounty, Demon's Souls, BF1943

I watched Whisper of the Heart.  It introduced the characters that later became the focus of The Cat Returns, though it isn't fantastical.  It's a sweet story, though perhaps falling short of the ridiculously high bar set by other Ghibli titles.

 I find it quite a strange juxtaposition of the fantastical and mundane. I really dont want to watch a film about a japanese schoolgirl in angst in boring reality. I kept wishing it would focus on the baron exclusively. It's pretty good but some of the music the characters play is horrid. 

 They did; it's call The Cat Returns.  You laughed at me liking it, you heartless bastard.

Yes I know but it wasn't really the same, the art style wasn't ghibli either and it was made by a younger experimental team and not directed by either of the Ghibli bigwigs. Did you know that the director of Whisper of the Heart was being groomed to take over from Miyazaki and Takahata before he unexpectedly died?

I think we are talking about the same one: "Ponyo, Ponyo etc etc!"

Let me try and find the concert performance for you.

Here is the video, ponyo suite. Round about 8 minutes 30 seconds.

The theme I hated but it grew on me.

So it turns out that not only is Ponyo being shown here, but that people have a choice in watching the Japanese version or English dub. And then I learnt that the dub has one of the fucking Jonas Brothers in it...

So I ask, for those who have seen the English dub? Is it still worth watching, or should I try find a cinema showing the Jap version?

Even if a Jonas Brother wasn't in it of course you should see the Japanese version.

OMG The Jonas Brothers! Who voices Ponyo? Hannah Montana?

You're actually pretty close. From what I hear, it's her sister or something like that.

GG, it's probably best that you don't know who the Jonas Bros are.

There. You should thank me for not giving you a link with sound.

The Jonas brother voices Sosuke. The Cyrus person voices Ponyo.

oh wow, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is spectacular.  After being underwhelmed by Whisper of the Heart and Howl's Moving Castle (relative to other Ghibli films, they've both still great), I was a bit concerned.  Then to see this...I have to put Nausicaä up there with Spirited Away.
