Howl's Moving Castle
Date: 16/11/2004
Howl's Moving Castle is the next movie from Studio Ghibli (of Nausicaš, Laputa, Kiki's, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away fame) to be released on the 20th of November. And what I wouldn't do to be a fly on the wall in a Japanese theatre next week! (lack of subtitles not withstanding)

I'm trying really hard not to read anything about it in case I accidently spoil the movie. When Spirited Away finally made it out here to Australia I made it to one of the first screenings (after missing the first few due to it being booked out months in advance). I had high expectations after Princess Mononoke and yet it still managed to blow them away! Which is pretty good considering that I don't usually gush over anything. My friends know if I give some movie a "It was good" rating then actually it was fantastic. So you can understand why after waiting for 3 years(?) it's a big deal when this studio release their next movie.

I really would like to see it on the big screen first, but it's going to be 12 months before it makes it out here in theatres. Which is highly annoying. So I could settle for a DVD copy on a projector I think. Maybe early next year I'll be able to import a r2 disc. Although I'll have to region free my DVD player first :{

So if you do get the chance to see Howl, then drop everything and go! I'm sure you'll at least like it, if not love it to death ;)
