Mononoke Hime is my favorite Ghibli movie.
I had seen Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi first, and when i saw Mononoke i thought "this eats Spirited Away for breakfast" it was ten time better than an already great movie. I since have seen all the Ghibli movies except only yesterday.

I thought Princess Mononoke was 100 times better than Spirited Away. The latter was good, but I found it forgettable. The former touched on the humans in the context of other biota issue which I was interested in anyway. And I liked the way it showed several sides to the issue.

Favourite Ghibli movie? Toss up between Laputa, Grave of the Fireflies and Mononoke. Laputa slowly grew on me as I realised it shows some pretty deep ideas in a very lucid way.

I actually don't care for Mononoke Hime as much as many other Ghibli movies. Its a fantastic film, but there's parts I don't care for.

My favourite is probably Laputa. It may not have quite the same magical element as Spirited Away, but something about it really captured me. I agree with the description from the poster above. I love all the ones that I've seen, though there are a couple I still need. I personally thought that Pom Poko was an amazing film, but not as sophisticated as many of the others. It had a unique charm to it, though.

Porco Rosso and Laputa are pretty much tied for me.

spirited away was the first I saw , I loved it due to it's different nature and 'what the' factor

next to that would have to be my neighbour totoro, it has a catchy tune and THE CAT BUS!

next in line i'd say princess mononoke for the simple fact there is a wolf involved

Princess Mononoke was the first anime dvd that i ever purchased. being a novice anime fan, the type of ending in it confused me and left me "what the f*ck?" because i was used to american endings. Ashitaka kicked some a$$.

but Nausicaa is kicka** too. in the anime she went ballistic, but in the manga shes a little more agressive....now only if i can find volume 6. cause im not skipping. and the manga is sooooooo different from the anime.

My Neighbor Totoro is likely my favorite (watched it yesterday with my nieces, in fact). Followed very closely by Whisper of the Heart & Laputa, Castle in the Sky to round out a Top-3.

Love 'em all though!

I like the newer one, Tales of EarthSea.

It's hard to pick a favorite. I gues it comes down to Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke.
