Castle in the Sky (1986)

A fantastic adventure flick with memorable sets and set pieces galore (the escapades on floating Laputa with its fascinating mix of dark labyrinths and earthy beauty being definite highlights), wonderfully paced (just the right amount of slower discovery scenes break up the action), and with plenty of humour throughout thanks to Dola and the pirates (shout-out to the buff battle though). Child protagonists Pazu and Sheeta, meanwhile, add particularly affecting heart and charm to it all.
