I have a lot of favorite movies, but one of the best to see is Howl's Moving Castle. The movie is animated, but when you see the names "Hayao Miyazaki" or "Studio Ghibli," don't dismiss it. The animation is beautiful-- at times simplistic, and at other times complicated. The movie is based on a book by Dianna Wynne Jones, and as much of a fan as I am, the movie can still take my breath away. Howl's Moving Castle is something Miyazaki-sensei really outdid himself on, and I highly recommend it. Five stars across the board!
