I love the movie.
I also love the book it's based on. Of course, it's much more complicated, films are almost always more simple than the book. In it, Sophie, while still bewildered and self effacing, is much more powerful. There is a sequel, too.
I absolutely adore Miyasaki's movie. Howl's is not my favourite Miyasaki though, that is Laputa - Castle in the Sky. It's wonderfully amazing and fantastic. No. 3 for me is Spirited Away, also a magical movie.
when it was subtitled in English... fell in with it again whenDisney released it in the US in English.
The book is good too, if you take it as another story with the same title and don't let the differences between movie and book storylines bother you.
i love this movie so much, i love the way the characters look different all throughout the movie.
howl is so handsome, although he looks just like a barbie doll!
i want his earrings i have had my eye out for some but nothing similar yet. i love his diamond pattern coat...
As a matter of fact, I'm watching it right now! Sophie's messing with the portal and got scolded lol!
This movie is touching, deep, insightful, and one you must watch multiple times in order to get the full affect. The animation is brilliant, and the story is timeless.
