“Even if you were a woman, you’d still be an idiot!”

A bit about the movie (from imdb): While protecting his village from rampaging boar-god/demon, a confident young warrior, Ashitaka, is stricken by a deadly curse. To save his life, he must journey to the forests of the west. Once there, he’s embroiled in a fierce campaign that humans were waging on the forest. The ambitious Lady Eboshi and her loyal clan use their guns against the gods of the forest and a brave young woman, Princess Mononoke, who was raised by a wolf-god. Ashitaka sees the good in both sides and tries to stem the flood of blood. This is met be animosity by both sides as they each see him as supporting the enemy.

This film is great both for its female characters and it’s exploration of environmental issues. If you have an interest in either, both, or just amazing animated films, come along. But seriously, how awesome is Princess Mononoke? See below. I rest my case!
