I love all of Miyazaki Hayao's films and out of all of them, "Howl's Moving Castle" is by far my favourite. Not to spoil anything but in this movie, there is love and a kiss (which is quite rare for a Miyazaki film). And all of the characters are likable! Especially Heen (he's Madame Sullivan's pet doggie!). I highly recommend this film to anyone and it's a wonderful introduction to all of Miyazaki's films!
I own almost every Miyazaki animations available in US market. This latest animation of Miyazaki is one of his best. It is by far most romantic of all his works. The story and the drawings of this particular movie is just amazing. Miyazaki films don't use any CG(Believe it or not, it's all drawing!!) and the detail of the scenes are outstanding. Both my sons (6 and 13) love this movie and they also enjoy watching it in Japanese(even though they don't know a word of it!) Also, Overstock has the best value Miyazaki animations as far as I know. I haven't seen any price lower anywhere else. Anyone looking for long lasting romantic-advanturous-animation should go for this one.
I actually already own it and have watched it too many times to count cause I LOVE IT, and when I am not watching it then my daughter is ..and now my 3 year old son loves it too though I think that is part the music and images ; ) , I recommended it to my mom and now she loves it so much she wants me to buy it for her for Christmas , so here I am !
Howls moving Castle is a great movie and perfect for children from the ages of about 9 and up. They should be old enough to understand magic and things like that to no be scared. Miyazaki is at his absoulte best and I love this movie to no end. He out did himself on this one.
The book by Diana Wynne Jones is adapted by Hayao Miyazaki's into his most brilliant work to date. Magic, demons, spells, Politics, Duty, War, A Prince. The struggle of family, self and sacrifice. Little ones will love Calcipher, older kids will love Howl, Adults will love the complex themes and outstanding music by Joe Hisaishi. The soundtrack is great, too! :The Boy who drank Stars is my favorite track. If you like Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, and Eragon, You'll Love Howl and the Moving Castle.
