Howl's Moving Castle

We watched this on DVD last night. I'm not a big fan of Japanese anime or Miyasaki, but this was awesome. The story was strange (I don't get it!), but, as you can see, the castle and the whole show was a visual feast. To top it off, the English dubbing was first rate. They got Christian Bale, Emily Mortimer, Billy Crystal, Jean Simmons, Blythe Danner and Lauren Bacall to voice the characters.

i love miyazaki...esp "spirited away." he always has creepy grandmas in his movies.
Howl's Moving Castle was campy funny to me...like when he's all "i'm so incredibly good looking."

Yeah, the stories are freaky- what can I say.

My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service are my favorites.
