Spirited Away is an absolutely incredible film that I'm glad I finally got to experience : movies
Castle in the Sky: An amazing adventure movie, better than even Spielberg's best adventure films.

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind: It does have similar elements to Mononoke, but it still feels like it's own thing very well.

Kiki's Delivery Service: A really great slice of life movie.

Grave of the Fireflies: The best movie you'll never wanna see again (it's probably Ghibli's darkest film [even more than Mononoke])

Tale of the Princess Kaguya: A great adaptation of the old story and has some stunning animation.

Only Yesterday: Another fantastic slice of life movie.

Porco Rosso: A very entertaining film (some really good airplane dog fights too)

Whisper of the Heart: Another great slice of life and also very inspiring to any one interested in writing.

Princess Mononoke: This is my favorite from them (and I'm not the biggest fantasy guy). Beautiful animation, fantastic story, great characters, and an amazing world. It's Hayao Miyazaki's and Ghibli's magnum opus in my opinion.

The Cat Returns: This movie is just completely nonsense and it's super enjoyable because of it.

Tales from Earthsea: It has beautiful animation and a good cast. That's about all the good I can say about it because the movie is an absolute bore.

Ponyo: An interesting and enjoyable take on the Little Mermaid story.

From Up on Poppy Hill: Enjoyable but it's kind of dragged down by the weird incest mystery.

The Secret World of Arrietty: A very well done adaptation of The Borrowers.

The Wind Rises: Phenomenal drama about a warplane maker. The ending is heartbreaking.

When Marnie Was There: Very good movie, while the main character is a bit unlikable at first, she grows. The deeper story is also very good and pretty heartbreaking. It's a nice mix of slice of life, a non-horror ghost story, and a mystery.
