There she befriends Howl's apprentice Markl, Howl's fire demon Calcifer, and eventually, Howl himself. Sophie then becomes the castle's cleaning lady in an effort to not only find the solution to her problem but to save Howl from his own terrible secrets as well.

Alright, it's a Miyazaki so you know it's good. But after rigorously (am I using that right?) searching show times, i discovered that it's playing absolutely NOWHERE in my town. The closest is Chicago! Jees...I doubt my parent's will drive me all the way out there...

*cries* someone hug me!!

It looks really cute. I've never actually seen an anime movie before, except for the Inuyasha movie on TV.

Oooooh! It's playing in Chicago? Maybe I can get my sister to drive me there...

I saw it last night, downloaded it, yes I'm impatient.

It's pretty good. The story starts out really good then it starts to get a bunch of plot holes toward the middle but none the less I enjoyed it. I'm sure it's spectacular on the big screen I would see it again so I can watch it in it's full glory. the DL I have was fuzzy and I'm sure left out a lot of detail in the animation.

laugh.gif How fortuitous. I DLed it a few days ago but haven't had the time ti watch it. I will probably watch it tomorrow. I saw an ad for it on a website, of all things to lure me to DL a movie. It looks pretty good though, and the director or whatever received acclaim for his Spirited Away movie.

Miyazaki is acclaimed for almost everything he did. But story wise this wasn't one of his best works.

I resent him being called the Walt Disney of Japan since Miyazaki's films have orginal storys.

I was at the American Premiere of the Dub on Monday. biggrin.gif
The movie is amazing, no surprise since it is a Studio Ghibli film, and Miyazaki is a genius.

It was quite different from the original book, and there were quite a few tangents where he included something that was really important to the story in the book, yet made no sense what-so-ever in the movie. I was particularly amused by the way they called the charecter "Michael" "Markl" even in the dub. Oh wells.

It was good as far as dubs go, so I highly recomend it. I still havn't seen it in Japanese though, so I guess I'm going to wait until the DVD comes out. I was particularly pleased since Diana Wynne Jones has always been a favorite Author of mine, and Howl's Moving Castle was one of my favorite things to read when I was younger. If you have never read anything by her I recomend all of it, no matter how old you are. She's been writting Young Adult Fantasy for decades now, and was one of J.K. Rowlings main influences for Harry Potter.


..Mostly what I found at that premiere is that I can be stealthy lil' ninja when I want to... because in my fear someone I knew would see me there with my parents, I somehow managed to hide from my best friend... neither of knew the other was there 'till the next day, when we attempted to make the other jealous. ph34r.gif

Hey, Disney's not that bad.

Well, not nearly as good as Ghibli, but still...

I'd love to see this! I'm such a Ghibli fan! happy.gif If you haven't seen more Ghibli films, then for goodness sake, why not? (Princess Mononoke is my favorite. <3)

i haven't really looked up what this movie is about, but from the promos on TV, i dont think it will be as exciting as princess mononoke and spirited away. im probably wrong, so blame the commercials. >.<

Saw it some time in Easter holiday cause I live in Hong Kong. It was really really good (it's Miyazaki afterall), though I like Spirited Away slightly more.
