When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.

This portion of anime is set in an indeterminate period (a cross between Harry Potter, Jules Verne and Alice in Wonderland) where... read more

Hayao Miyazaki has done it again. This is another of his engaging works which is a brain trip on the high, fantastic road of the subconcious. But like all his other fantastic works, this one has a heart. You still know and feel that the experience is familiar, each character's dispositions only right, and the troubled circumstances the characters are plunged into, comic yet inevitable (in the film... read more

"Feb 23th Rewatched. Most visually beautiful animated film. Slowed paced in parts but awe inspiring on account of the world created around the fully fleshed characters. A compulsory viewing. 7.9 "

"MOVIE: A young girl is forced to toil in her parents' hat shop and her only joy is in her occasional meetings with a handsome stranger, Howl the wizard. When a witch sees her happiness, she curses her to become old in a jealous rage. Ashamed and afraid, she flees to Howl's magic moving castle. Will Howl see her for who she really is?...notes by me: If you never watched this film, or any other hayao miazaki film, then life is probably a boring and empty place for you.

2016: Films I've Watched in June (14 movies items)

"First watched 6/13/2016 Thoughts: Bright and beautifully animated with very interesting ideas and creations. However, the main plot seems confused and the messages not as subtle or effective as other Miyazaki works. With the last 15 minutes causing some serious head scratching but still a lot of fun. "
