Mini Review - Ponyo

Ponyo (out Aug 27) is an animated flick from acclaimed Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away). It's about a 5-year-old boy and a talking goldfish who wants to be a human, but his evil wizard of a father has other ideas. I don't know what Miyazaki smokes but it's strong stuff. I love his creativity however this one didn't achieve the heights of his previous work. Grade: B.
