  • Howl's Moving Castle

    I saw this recently and was really impressed. I thought that bits of it were very, how can I put it, Moorcockish, especially the dream/magic bits (I can't really remember how they fitted into the plot, I just remember sitting in the cinema and thinking, "Wow, that looks so Moorcock-y!) The castle in particular reminded me a bit of the Gypsy Nation or the Frowning Shield from "Phoenix in Obsidian". Not that that either of those comparisons are particularly flattering, but that's what I thought of when I first saw the Castle.

    Hawksun,

    That sounds cool, is that one of those ride attractions or is it on dvd? :)

      The film's based on a book by British writer Diana Wynne Jones, although the book and the film are quite different. The film has a lot of similarities with director Hayao Miyazaki's previous films, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. It only came out in cinemas in Britain a few weeks ago, so I don't think that it'll be out on DVD for a while.

          Now I've got another excuse to go back to the cinema (providing it's still showing)! I loved 'Spirited Away' when I first saw it earlier this year. If not, I'll rent it from Global or something. Cheers Hawksun!
