howl's moving castle
"how the hell did i let that happen?" i wondered. and then i remembered. riiight, i went to the candy store....
i'm so predictable.
anyway, howl's moving castle/hauru no ugoku shiro, the newest of the studio ghibli films, is about sophie, a young hatmaker who is cursed by the witch of the waste. in an attempt to remove the curse, sophie moves into magician howl's moving castle.
there's a lot more to it than that. a lot. and it is STUNNING visually. (i mean, look at howl. he's really quite attractive for a cartoon character, don't you think?) it's affected me so much that i've been having dreams about this film. (no, not that kind of dream, you perv. sheesh!)
i just finished the book that it was based on (also called howl's moving castle by diana wynne jones.) it's just as great as the movie.
look, just promise me you'll see this movie if you can? you'll thank me.
