It's very possible that Studio Ghibli is pretty much done making movies. Which makes this Miyazaki Collection, officially titled 'The Collected Works Of Hayao Miyazaki' pretty timely. It's been planned for release in Australia for a while now and finally it's here.
I'm pretty keen for it. It collects all of Miyazaki's 11 movies and puts them into a really elegant little package. Goddamn, I'm so close to pulling the trigger on the Blu-Ray version of this. I don't even know if it's the movies or the packaging that's got me all hot and heavy. I love the minimalist cover art, just beautiful, super clean stuff. Appeals to my sense of aesthetics.
But there's no getting past it, it's pretty pricey. The Blu-Ray version of the box set is $324.95 and the DVD version is $274.95. It's birthday/christmas present material really.
There's so much good stuff in here though. Goddamn it. You can find out more -- and hover your mouse over the 'buy' button -- here.
