''It's all so familiar yet I know I've never been here before. I feel so at home.''

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.

"What a dump. When I think of castles, it's not what I picture."

Hauru no ugoku shiro (a.k.a. Howl's Moving Castle) - the latest animated enchantment from esteemed Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki - is based on a novel by English writer Diana Wynne-Jones. 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

A Complete Review of Hayao Miyazaki's work (13 movies items)

" What was it about? 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 castle. My two cents: Well, I really loved the damned thing and it turned out to be my second favorite movie directed by the great Japanese master. First of all, as usual, the animation was nothing short of amazing. In my opinion, it is a real proof that hand-dr"

Studio Ghibli Films - Ranked (21 movies items)

" Howl's Moving Castle is such an imaginative, clever and emotionally rich piece of animation. It's also a film that rewards multipile viewings, as every time I've watched it, I've come to appreciate new things about it, as well as to pick up things I hadn't noticed before. The animation is, as to be expected from Studio Ghibli, absolutely gorgeous. The film is filled with so much imagination, that despite a slightly long running time, the film never runs out of steam and is one that I adore."

35 From 4: My Favorite Films From 2004 (35 movies items)

"I grew up watching animated films during the late 70's and through out the 80's. And back then, the medium's horizon seemed vast and open and full of endless possibilities. By the new millenium, with the symbiotic monopoly of the genre by Disney and Pixar, that potential had pretty much dissipated. The only chance we now have of seeing outside the norm of Pixney is through the rare outside efforts of non-American countries and particularly through Japan's anime industry. Expanding on the qual"

"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 Reviews (151-200) (50 movies items)

" As all Studio Ghibli films it is an unique animated film. This one makes the heroine into an old woman and there is a flying moving castle that she needs to find. Perfect hand drawn (as usual) imagery that grabs my imagination from beginning to end. But I felt it has an too abrupt ending to be 100% satisfying."

"First viewing - July 7th On our way home from watching Homecoming, my daughter asked if we could watch this after breakfast the next morning & I agreed. Once again she enjoyed the whole thing & is now even more on board with watching more films like it. I liked this one almost as much as Castle in the Sky, though I did think there were a couple places where it dragged a little. Much like the previous film we watched, however, the world-building and characters were impressive and engaging enough"
