Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "The Tale of the Princess Kaguya" (2014)

So, unfortunately this movie doesn't seem to have much of a chance at winning the Oscar for animated feature this weekend (it should be the frontrunner), but it is by far the best animated film of last year, and one of the best movies of the year period (as you'll see when I finally post my top ten of 2014 this Saturday). It's a gorgeously drawn story filled with magic and princesses that's based on a Japanese folk legend, and everyone should see it, not just kids. It's a work of artistic perfection.

Trailer (sadly this is the dubbed version, as I couldn't find one with subtitles, but I guess if English speaking kids are going to able to see this movie at all it's going to have be the dubbed one anyway):
