''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

This movie is a must-see. One of Miyazak

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

“Una película con unos personajes que tienen la personalidad que Miyazaki quiere que tengan cuando le conviene a la trama.

Independiente a esto, el concepto es interesante, los personajes son interesantes y de aquí pudo haber salido una gran película. Pero no, esta es una película donde se habla de una guerra pero no se profundiza en ello. Se habla de hechiceros y magia pero no se profundiza en ello. Se habla de un conflicto que tienen los personajes pero no se profundiza en ello ni en las personalidades de los personajes.

Al final me quedo con una película con una excelente animación, sumamente entretenida, pero nada más allá. Elementos interesantes muy desaprovechados.” read more

"Re-watch - Jan. 11th The kiddo picked this out for us to watch together, and I liked it better the second time around. Looking back, last time I thought it dragged a bit at times, but that was not the case at all this time around. I found the pacing appropriate and wound up enjoying it more all around. I still don't think I'd go out of my way to watch it without her, but maybe if we watch it a couple more times I'll change my tune."

Favorite Romances (51 movies items)

" Love that exists despite curses and outward appearance. Howl's Moving Castle evokes a childlike desire for romance, danger and adventure in it's audience. Heavy stuff baby. When Sofie says "It's wonderful Hal," I could just die. "
