A long, long time ago, in a state far away, a wee tiny Belkira used to look forward to the trips to the local movie rental shop. I used to rent "The Last Unicorn" and "David the Gnome" over and over. One movie I rented a few times and just loved was "Jack and the Beanstalk."
Years later, something sparked a memory, and I searched for this movie on DVD. I watched it again last night. It's a little weird, a little creepy, and still pretty good. It's anime before anime was "cool." No, there are no pre-teen girls showing their panties. But there is an ogre and a princess and an evil witch.
My husband sat down halfway through and caught the wedding scene with the paper doll congregation (and the creepy "preacher" singing the "Are You Happy?" song) and declared the movie strange, and me strange for liking it so much.
Anyway. If you haven't seen it, see it! And tell me how weird I am for liking it.
