Got to write about Ghibli again!
Only to tout an under-loved Ghibli, but that’s reason enough to repost this month-old listicle: http://www.flickchart.com/blog/the-top-10-films-of-2006/

Looking back on 75 years since America’s entry into the conflict, here are ten movies from Japan, England, America, Germany, and the Soviet Union that cover World War II with an eye to both artistry and historical detail.

I always enjoy these, and this one was especially enjoyable. http://www.flickchart.com/blog/the-top-20-films-of-1896-1906/
