English Dub version sucked BIG BIG time!
<BR> This is the one of the best Miyazakifs classic and my personal favorite. So this is sad to me to say anything negative.<BR> <BR> It was a torture to listen. If you liked original Japanese track, DO NOT even try to listen English track!! If you switch language between English and Japanese, you will notice Disney redid and added the background music. Disneyfs version literary destroyed and ruined the movie. <BR> <BR> For example, at the beginning when the pirates assaulted the flying ship that hold Sheeta, the original was mostly done by the strings and synthesizer, but Disney added the drums. The result was the techno kind music changed into army marching song so the atmosphere of the scene. And also they carried away or added their own version of music where the original didnft have the background music at all. Like, when Pazu operated the elevator at the mine where he works, Disney added old 70fs cartoon kind music which makes the scene feels like old cartoon comedy not the Anime. <BR> <BR> And a bit talkier? Charles Solomon of Amazon.com you are so modest and too kind to Disney. They talked way too much! Even though, it is not as annoying as the background music, it is still terribly done. Their dialogue dose not communicated at all, as if two complete separate lines cut and pasted together. Some actors donft have a right talent to do voice acting. It requires completely different talent. So be aware of that, too. <BR> <BR> Still this is great movie to watch. Enjoy the original Japanese version or French version which is faithful to the original. <BR>
