Look, any landing you can walk away from…

This past weekend the OSMcast decided to hit up our local cinema and see the latest (and perhaps last) film by Hayao Miyazaki, and Studio Ghibli. And as it turns out, it’s kind of a conflicted movie. So here is our own conflicted take on this dual adaption of both the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, as well as Tatsuo Hori’s short story, The Wind Has Risen. It’s probably not the most glowing review of the movie you’ll find around, and might a touch spoiler-y here and there.

But before you think we are all a bunch of sourpusses, we make sure to gush about some Japanese RPGs and some other things!


Theoretically, the movie should still be in theaters! Here’s a link to the movie’s website. If you can go, you should. To at very least, make up your own minds about the film. And then let us know what you think!

Unless you hated what we thought. In which case, you know what to do.
