Yes, of course there would be a movie review! Knowing me and my Howl's Moving Castle obsessioning fangirlingment, there would. XD And, yes, I did rewatch it--again. C :
Both the movie animation and the book are totally two different things. I adore them both. <333 Howl was definitely sweeter and less Drama Queen like in the book, which surprised me when I read the book. Well, at least you get to see how he looks! > _ < Sophie was still a feisty old woman who still had her own, personal charm to her character. Marco was, whoa, TOTALLY different. In the book he was in his teen years (guessing 15? I forgot, please remind me) and in the movie, he was just a little kid! I wonder why they changed that...Hrmm, hrmm..Also, Calcifer was still that fiery demon of himself. ^^
And--Dwa-yes!--Studio Ghibli production!!! What could possibly make it wrong? I did not care that they changed so much of the plot story because Mr. Miyazaki made the story his own so you can see the world that Jones created in his eyes.
And, I was so happy that the book had the Slime Part as in the movie (visa versa)! You can't have Drama Queen Howl without green slime!
