A few card pairs

Just so you can see how much fun the script of Warriors of the Wind is, consider the following pairs (ETA: not all are dialogue pairs--only the third and fifth are actually exchanges between people; the other three are one person speaking):

--I never saw so much pollution
--You couldn't cut it with a chain saw [note: the people saying this manifestly do not have chain saws]

--Let's teach these insurgents a lesson in crowd control
--Drop a bomb on them!

--Are you going to boil me in oil or burn me at the stake?
--Hmmm, take your pick!

--I can take off anywhere
--Except under fire!

--I really love this valley!
--And I loathe it

(That one's a real family fave. If one of us asks another if they can do something, we'll often reply, "I can [do X] anywhere... except under fire!")

There are some high points of Warriors of the Wind I really like better than the later dubs and translations. It was my first exposure to Miyazaki, so I can't hate it like purists. :)

Oh yay!! Someone else who's actually seen it!

We really love it as a sort of alternative universe Nausicaa.

I miss the scenes it omits, but some things about it I really, really love. I *love* the thought monologue they give her underneath the Swamp of Corruption/Toxic Jungle, finishing with "Can it be that there is no death?" It always makes me tear up. In the real thing, she's doing the important business of realizing how the Swamp is doing its purifying of the planet--so really we *need* those thoughts--but I love the ones that they gave her in this dub.
