quest_for_camelot_front_largeIt was the 1990s and animated movies were outstanding, no matter whether hand-drawn or computer animated. The tales come from the studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers were amazing, and our millennial kids could not get enough of them. The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot is one of those movies. A new take on the Arthurian legend, this focuses on Kayley(Jessalyn Gilsig), the daughter of Sir Lionel (Gabriel Byrne) and Lady Juliana (Jane Seymour). Kayley is enamored with all the ideals of what a true Knight of the Round Table stands for, and wants to be a knight just like her father. At this time, the kingdom is very prosperous and at peace, but too peaceful for one knight in particular. Sir Ruber (Gary Oldman) has become greedy, and looks to take Arthur’s land for himself. To do this, he must obtain Excalibur, and after attacking Arthur to steal it, Sir Lionel is caught between them and takes a fatal wound. Ruber succeeds in getting the blade, and gives it to his hench-creature? Griffin (Bronson Pinchot) to fly back to his keep for safe-keeping.

The Making of the “The Cat Returns”

Since The Cat Returns is one of our most popular posts, we thought you might like a little insight into the one movie that every cat love must own. Much of this documentary is in Japanese, but don’t worry, there are no subtitles, as translators do the voice overs for us. We meet with the master movie maker, Hayao Miyazaki, who has at least 10 movies on the IMDB top 250, and what prompted this story. In actuality, The Cat Returns is a spin-off from an earlier Studio Ghibli movie, “Whisper of the Heart“. In that story, a teen girl finds inspiration to follow her heart from Baron Humbert von Gikkingen, a dapper cat with a diplomatic manner and clever wit. We go in all kinds of directions while seeing how this movie was made, from interviews with the director, producer, and Japanese voice actors. We even meet the big stray cat that is the body model for Muta. This cat is a stray that lives at the studio, and she struts around the area like she owns the place. Everyone there likes her, so maybe she does. One endearing an funny clip features just about everyone on the staff at Ghibli, from the actors to the editors to the cleaning crew, coming into to make “cat calls” for the scene where the cats have their procession to Haru’s house. We even get to watch as they produce the music, and enjoy as we hear and watch the cute Ayano Tsuji sing the opening theme song “Kaze Ni Naru” with only her ukelele as an accompaniment.

The Cat Returns (2002)

Earlier, Cleave had posted a review of a wonderful Hayoa Miyazaki movie, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and I’m here to treat you to another. Any and every cat lover must own or at least have to see this movie! The Cat Returns is a story about a teen girl, Haru, who seems to be having a stream of bad luck. She’s running late for school due to little accidents, the boy she has a crush on has started dating someone new, and stupid little annoying things just keep happening to her. The movie takes place in a span of about three days. On this first day when we see Haru in her angsty state, she and her friend, Hiromi see a black cat carrying a package in its mouth and looking for traffic as he attempts to cross the street. Hiromi calls to the cat, tells him to watch out or he’ll get killed. About halfway across the street, he drops the package, and the light has turned green. A truck comes darting down the street, and is about to hit the cat, but Haru runs out into the street, and rescues him by scooping him up with a lacrosse stick, which causes the stick to break. This is where Haru’s luck changes from bad to just weird. The cat stands up on his two hind paws, and thanks her. Haru is amazed that the cat can talk, but Hiromi thinks she’s just been working too hard.
