Porco Rosso. It's an amazing film, and toys with the saying, "When Pigs Fly".

I would have to say Spirited Away, but I have watched a fair amount of studio Ghibli films so I will go a step further and list my top 5.
1. Spirited Away (Wonderful music scores Joe Hisaishi pulls out all the stops in this classic, with a story anyone could love)
2. Princess Mononoke (All around classic)
3. Cat Returns (short but a good one for the whole family if you have young ones)
4. My Neighbor The Yamada's (over the top crazy)
5. Grave of the Fireflies (very sad movie)

I've only ever watched Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro. I enjoyed Spirited Away the most, but liked Princess Mononoke's story better, so I'm sticking with the princess.

Howl's just left me going "WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THAAT?!" at the end, it had scenes which had potential to be something amazing, but then just went KAPHUT, what crap.

I would have to say Naussica for Ghibli, but for Miyazaki it would be the Future Boy:Conan series. It's basically a template for all of his anime, and has the best story.

Favorite Ghibli film- probably either SPirited Away or Castle in the Sky, but I really liked Princess Mononuke. Boy, was it long though! I loved it but I was ready for it to end.

This is a tough question, however I have to say that Spirited Away is my favourite. It was the first Ghibli film I saw, and one of the first anime I ever watched. I've since watched many more Ghibli films, but Spirited Away is still my favourite.

The Cat Returns and Nausicaa are close runners-up, though!

Nausicaa is always at the top of my Ghibli list as number one. However, ever since I discovered Miyazaki and Ghibli many years ago I couldn't help but search out as many films by Miyazaki, Takahata, and Studio Ghibli that I could find, and I must say that I find it truely impossible to say one film is really a favorite over the other. I very much liked Howl's Moving Castle, Laputa/Castle in the Sky, My Neighbors the Yamadas, Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Whisper of the Heart, Spirited Away -- and a lot of other Ghibli films.

The very first Miyazaki film (but not a Ghibli film) that I ever saw was Lupin III - the Castle of Cagliostro, and that film totally blew me away. Then there were other films by Takahata/Miyazaki like Famous Detective Holmes (Sherlock Hound), Future Boy Conan, Panda Ko Panda, Marcos Search for his Mother, Heidi, The Adventure of Hols: Prince of the Sun, and others I may have forgotten that I liked so very much. I've enjoyed a lot of what has come out of the productions of Takahata, Miyazaki and their staff when I've managed to find any of their films.

Seriousy? Hehe, my sister ad I hated it, we can't decide what's worse; Howl's, or Cat Returns.

Spirited Away because I worship the ground Miyazaki treads upon. Although Grave of the Fireflies is a close second.
