It's another stellar grade for Ponyo, this time from Scott Foundas. His review also appears in The Onion AV Club. It's another very short review, which is fine. I'm waiting for the longer essay reviews that go more in depth. Roger Ebert should be an especially compelling read.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, I did read the AP review, which was lackluster. It's no problem; life is too short and you can't win them all. Studio Ghibli has always been too smart for the mass media high school set. It is a bit weird that ABC would publish a poor review of Ponyo. After all, the network is owned by Disney. Oops!
