Castle in the Sky (Article) - 5/13/2010 6:06:18 PM

I'm probably one of the few who is less than thrilled with the audio revisions.  Sure, this brings it closer to the Japanese version, but why bother doing so just to appeal to the fans who wouldn't listen to the dub in the first place?  That and I thought the new score Joe Hisaishi wrote was magnificent and really added to the picture.  I am very disappointed that it's gone.  As for the extra lines, I'm 50-50 about them; I like most of them (the pirates' banter, Sheeta taking "pirate" talking lessons), but others definitely seemed a little overdone.  Still it wasn't enough for me to take away from my overall entertainment value of the dub.  Even so, I'm holding onto my 2003 DVD copy.

Awesome review, especially the dub; I really love this dub to pieces as well as this film!  (I know, I commented on that in a R2UK Forum, but I thought I'd say it again here.  Here's hoping that the rerelease of the movie contains more extras, though.
