about a month ago i was introduced to this movie by my ex and i was a little freaked out and confused when i first saw it, so i decided to get a better understanding of the movie so i watched it again and again and even again. This movie is the most amazing Oscar nominated animated film out their right now, if u haven't seen it please do so RIGHT AWAY! you dont know what your missing. After seeing this movie i decided to watch all Hiyao Miyazaki films but none of them even come close in comparison with "Howl's Moving Castle". Yes, not even "spirited Away" and that one even won an Oscar. This poor girl "Sophie" is her name, the main character go's on a wild adventure..and i MEAN WILD! and no matter what happens to this girl she still yet has so much heart...iv never seen a movie with such HEART it was amazing. Iv got teary eye'd a couple of times and i have no shame in saying that because after all we are all human and if u cant cry or get teary eye'd then that just simply means you have no heart. This is what a movie should be. The strange cast of characters keeps you drawn in and the story unfolds itself beautifully. This is also one of the best Love story's iv ever seen..EVER. Buckle in and take a ride with this beautiful movie i promise you that you will like it and if it doesn't quite make sense the first time. WATCH IT AGAIN!..i must have seen this movie id say roughly about 17 times now. OH, and there is this song that always plays out through the movie thats good. I carry this movie in my pocket and show it to all my friends when i meet up with them. Bottom Line is is that this movie is LEGEND and anybody who say's other wise has bad taste. Gentlemen if u have a special someone in your life(significant other) i highly recomend you pop this movie in and tell her Just watch the whole thing. Guarantee one off you will cry and who knows you just might get some ;) May God be with you...One Love!
