    Howl’s Moving Castle


    Great flick.
    Miyazaki Rules all.


    I remember reading the book ages ago and loving it. I thought the movie would be a tolerable anime… wow was I wrong.


    Tolerable? I’ve got a real peeve with people that think the movie and book should be identical. You obviously have zero knowledge of film production and the decisions a director has to make for a smooth adaptation. It was a marvelous movie. You start comparing the density of a novel with its shortened visual counterpart, you’ll always be disappointed.


    Ow I’ve never seen this one. Is it of the same quality as My Neighbour Totoro? The picture looks pretty sweet


    Ya, it has all the obscure Miyazaki charm as the rest. I haven’t met a film of his I didn’t at least moderately enjoy.


    Sweet. Yea creating stuff like this, without drugs is quite impressive. It’s on my to watch list then.


    To begin with, I say tolerable anime because I am quite the opposite of a fan. I am aware movies and books can have differences, look at Lord of the Rings. However, when the movie creates a compeltely different plot and leaves out some of the more memorable parts of the original, then I have problems.


    @Sarcastic: I see. Hard to have an accurate unbiased review on a movie to which you dislike its Genre to begin with.

    It’s difficult, but it’s important to cleanse your mind of any preconceptions before viewing a film that is based on a book you read.
    You’ll never enjoy it, cause it HAS to be different. Were you to translate a book directly to a screenplay, you’re likely to kill the general public with 12 hours of theater sitting.

    @dieAntagonista: Without drugs? Are you sure. I was convinced Miyazaki drank Lsd through a colorful curly straw.


    Very Steampunk.


    You all make very good points, movies dont have to be the exact same as the book they are made from. But honestly, the first 30 minutes are pretty close to each other and then it seems like Miyazaki forgot he was making a movie from a book and created his own little thing. They have zero in common except for the character names after one point.
    An example of a good adaption. Lord of the rings. The movies actually showcase what happens in the books, though they may shorten things, it all still ties in with the books.

    In conclusion, Howl’s Moving Castle the book and the film are 2 completely different things with little in common.


    : I agree. I always assume that conclusion before I ever watch a movie based on a book. They are two very different mediums. They should not be compared in the slightest. Especially when an eccentric like Miyazaki gets involved, because he makes EVERYTHING his own. Keep that mindset, and any similarities or valid representations will always surprise and please.
    my conclusion: don’t set yourself up for disappointment through preconception.


    Yeah, this was kind of what I was trying to say. Also, regardless of my bias against anime, I do think it was a fairly good portrayal until that halfway point, as Tardex mentioned, where the book goes out the window. That’s all that really bugged me, which I guess could almost be seen as a compliment.


    golden compass was horrible book adaptation… i expected the book and got shit all over by a computerized polar bear


    Never read Golden Compass, and the movie STILL sucked. and that speaks volumes…. ha ha, pun intended.


    I can’t watch Ghilbi movies because ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ was just too fucked. I still get all brained fucked when I think about that movie.


    Grave of the fireflies is the most immensely sad creation in existence. I’ve felt better at funerals, but damn, what a profound movie.


    Three reasons why this movie kicked ass:

    1) Miyazaki. I’ll only watch an anime that had been dubbed into english if he’s behind it. Fuck 4Kids.

    2) Billy Crystal as the fire spirit thing. Billy Crystal is always win.

    3) Christian fucking Bale. Really, need I say more?


    Dubbing is evil! Subtitles and the original language give you so much more.


    The most disappointing novel-to-movie I’ve ever seen has to be Lost World. There was simply nothing in common. I’m pretty sure the screen writer, director and producers had never actually read the book.
