Riffs - Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess, Castle in the Sky

Since we're going to mention Miyazaki's latest, I should point out this shot which immediately stuck out at me.  Mr. Dough coming to life and crawling out of the oven reminds me of similar shots of the giant robot from Castle in the Sky.  I couldn't decide which specific cut was being quoted, but they're pretty much the same pose - the robot crawling out of its cell, to alarmed soldiers, or the robot smashing through a narrow pathway in pursuit of Lana, err...I mean Sheeta.
