For bringing magic back to animation, and not just for kids.

Sweet story of two sisters out in the country, and their adventures with the forest spirits. The cat bus is so adorable, I still giggle thinking about it.

This one will really wow you, with its epic battle scenes and beautiful landscapes. There are conflicts on so many levels, as mankind seeks to wipe out the spirits of the forest.

By far my favorite animated film. Young Chihiro is "spirited away" to a different world, and becomes employed in the bathhouse of the gods in order to try and change her parents back from pigs.

Lead Bond 22 Babe to be Muy Caliente

September 14th, 2007

We may not yet know the title of the next James Bond movie, and we may not know what the story is about, but we now at least have an idea of who the next Bond Babe will be... even if her character might not have a name yet.

Lead Bond 22 Babe to be Muy Caliente

According to casting notices sent out this morning, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking for a Latina actress in her late twenties, preferably with South American roots. Despite their plea that prospective talent not be worried about fitting the traditional Bond Girl look, since this is the "new" Bond series, she must be quite beautiful, able to handle what promises to be a physically demanding role, fluent in English and, last but most certainly not least, a great actress.

The next Bond film will begin filming in the United Kingdom and across Europe and South America under the direction of Marc Foster this coming January, with a six month production anticipated.
