I mean it's pretty much saying late capitalism is shitty

But on the other hand, some generic 'capitalism not so good' message isn't that based really, it just commodifies resistance.

Wait, Star Wars? What the fuck? That isn't even anticapitalist

Explain yourself please. That whole movie is shilling sympathy tears for a family of fascist. It obviously does a great job of illuminating the horrors of war and de-glorifiying it. But if it were really communist I think maybe it would want to touch on why Japan or their pals for that matter were getting fire bombed to start with. Miyazaki may be somewhat of a leftist himself, but Grave of the Fireflies is like the least commie movie ever.

The heroes are pirates and the villains are usually the crown.

The third movie has them do a pirate version of the international and resist colonialism driven by the East India Trading Company in a very thinly disguised metaphor for anti-imperialism. The main villain of 2 and 3 (and retroactively 1 to a degree) spends practically all his screentime explaining how capitalism is evil/inevitable/all-consuming. His catchphrase is literally "It's nothing personal, just good business," which he says every time he backstabs someone (which is often). 3 also opens with holocaust-tier imagery paired with the union jack being obscured by the company's flag in the most obvious symbolism of all time (vid related). I'm kind of shocked Disney allowed this movie to do what it did, but the previous film was only like the third film ever to gross a billion dollars at release.

Class collaboration is a component of fascism sure, but it isn't fascism in an of itself, that's an incredibly naïve and undialectical view of what fascism is and how it operates. That's on the same level as claiming a nation is socialist is socialist if it nationalizes some of its industry.

Those things are more like techno-accelerationist Nick Land type of stuff, can be communist, but isn't necessarily. Also, very implicit Zionism in the Matrix triology.
