Howls Moving Castle

My kids are watching this movie . I am really loving it. It is an incredibly creative, very sweet, quirky, japanese animated love story. Just beautiful animation. Danis says, "This movie must have caffiene, 'cause i can't stop watching it."

Sophie, a 19-year-old girl who believes she is plain, has resigned herself to a drab life in her family's hat shop--until the Witch of the Waste transforms her into a 90-year-old woman. In her aged guise, Sophie searches for a way to break the Witch's spell and finds unexpected adventures. Like Chihiro, the heroine of Spirited Away, Sophie discovers her hidden potential in a magical environment--the castle of the title. Using CG, Miyazaki creates a ramshackle structure that looks like it might disintegrate at any moment. Sophie's honesty and determination win her some valuable new friends: Markl, Howl's young apprentice; a jaunty scarecrow; Calcifer, a temperamental fire demon; and Heen, a hilarious, wheezing dog. She wins the heart of the dashing, irresponsible wizard Howl, and brings an end an unnecessary and destructive war.

My kids like these movies, but I have to say that Spirited Away was SOOOOO Weird! There is a giant baby and a very scary momma. Madeline asks and asks to get it again, but it was so weird. Castle in the Sky was a little better. We'll have to check this one out!
