Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away

Recommended Posts

When you watch it enough they stop playing as well, the sound messes up and just isn't all that great anymore.

 

We did it with the one of our Stephen King movies too, Rose Red.

 

Yeah we love them. I listen to them in the offered languages just for the fun of it a lot.

Love Spirited Away!!! I'm so sad because I only had it in VHS and now that I don't have a VHS player I had to get rid of it. On top of it all I'm a poor college student and can't afford to buy the DVD. So I am on Spirited Away withdrawal. sad.gif

It's one I always look for if I go to garage sales or second hand stores.

 

You all talk about no-face as scary, but I was really scared of the Big Baby and the Three-Puke-Green Heads. The pig transformations were disturbing too and I almost cried when Chihiro promised her parents that she would save them, then has to run away.

 

But I loved Rin (Lin) and The Boiler Man (He's awesome) and the soot balls tongue.gif .

 

Definitely going through withdrawal...

 

I have yet to see Howls Moving Castle. I want to but the Poor College Student Syndrome has blocked me so far.

I've seen most of both and I really want to see them both in their entireties (?is that even a word?) because they are extremely well-done and enjoyable.

Spirited away was one of the first Anime films I watched, and I really liked it though I didn't understand the plot the first time I watched it. I think it's a cool story and it's got good timing :D

@LaydeeC - Grave of the Fireflies. One of the really rare movies that manages to make me depressed.

I bought a 12 movie set at a con for 30$ so I kinda got to see ones that were never released in a subbed version ._.

I like the older Ghibli movies best...I was not impressed by Ponyo

Definetely Spirited Away is the best but as others mentioned it, my favourite Ghibli's one is Grave of the Fireflies

@_@ Spirited Away makes me melt... I loooove it so much. I need to buy it soon. The story is so amazing and the characters are so real. I really loved how the little girl (I can't recall her name) changed from the beginning to end. The transition was great.

 

Howl's Moving Castle was good, but I still love Spirited Away MUCH more... Howl's Moving Castle kinda was just -- I dunno, just not as good to me. lol I still like it but just not as much. It just lacked something for me, I suppose.

Howl's Moving Castle is one of the few movies I like better than the book, but I feel like Miyazaki gets too much credit for it.

I've seen both movies at least a dozen times xd.png I still can't decide which one's better tho.

The book by Diana Wynne Jones is also very very good. If you liked the movie you'll love the book. It's not my all time favorite but it's the one I've read the most (it's almost falling apart!). I read it three times in a row when I first got it laugh.gif

I've seen those two. I loved both <3 I love Calcipher, though... He was just awesome xd.png Especially that part where he turns really red at being complimented. xd.png

 

Wait, was Pom Poko really made by Hayao Miyazaki? No, right? It was by another person and Studio Ghibli made it happen, I think...

I used to love Howls Moving Castle and Spirited Away!

I have them both on dvd and I watch them from time to time.

And I adored Kiki's Delivery Service. I used to watch it over and over

when I was a kid!

 

The book Howls Moving Castle was really good, too. (:
