THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY Blu-ray Review
Collider - over 4 years
Though Pixar are often considered the reigning champs of cinematic batting averages (they have one of the best records for quality), Studio Ghibli is their equal, which may explain why Pixar’s John Lasseter has shepherded Ghibli’s work into American theaters.  This has everything to do with filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, whose work on films like My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away puts him in the pantheon with Walt Disney.  The Secret World of Arrietty wasn’t directed by him (though he has a credit as its planner), but it falls in line with his whimsical children’s films.  Our review of the Blu-ray of Arrietty follows after the jump. Arrietty (Bridgit Mendler in the English Language version), and her parents (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett) are “borrowers,” miniature people who live under the houses of normal humans and steal things like sugar cubes and crackers to get by. Their house gets a new occupant in Shawn (David Henrie), a sickly kid who’s about to have a major operation. He s ...
