Howl's Moving Castle

   Hey there guys!! ^_^ /   This is Candy posting in these blog once again!! This time I'll be posting about a not-so-new movie. Let's say this movie was released somewhere around 2004 and 2005. This movie was directed by the worldly famous Hayao Miyazaki for none other studio than for Studio Ghibli!!! @o@ This movie is based on a book with the same name written by Diana Wynne Jones. This movie, dear readers, is none other than Howl's Moving Castle!!! ( O v O ) It's totally and absolutely worth watching it. That means that it is highly recommendable. I definitely enjoyed watching Howl's Moving Castle. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed it so much that I had watched it once or twice a week during my last summer vacations.
This movie is basically about a very young woman, Sophie, who meets a mysterious wizard, Howl, on her way to visit her younger sister. On the moment she went back to her house, the Witch of the Wastes (who pursues Howl) and curses Sophie transforming her into an old lady. Then Sophie goes out in a journey finding a way to break the curse. Thanks to a an animated scarecrow Sophie found Howl's moving castle and was able to work there as a cleaning lady. On her way, she meets a lot of friends, including Calcifer, Markl, Heen (a very cute and smart dog), and Howl himself. Calcifer was a demon who held a contract with Howl and Markle was Howl's apprentice. Apparently, Calcifer and Sophie had made a deal, where Sophie would breaek the contract between Calcifer and Howl and Calcifer would free Sophie from the curse. Eventually Sophie discovers that there is war between her hometown and the neighboring kingdom, and realized that Howl would transform into a raven-like bird to interfere with the battle, and if he continued doing so Howl would no longer transform back into a human. While Sophie (and the Witch of the Wastes) was in a meeting with the neighboring kingdom's royalty (who was also pursuing Howl)the Witch of the Wastes was transformed into an old lady (actually back to her real age) and there comes Heen and accompanies Sophie and her friends, including the Witch of the Wastes (who honestly decided to aid Sophie). Well, I'm not great of a story teller so the only way you'll know what really happens in the movie is by watching it yourself. Anyways I'm spoiling it enough for you. I hope you all enjoy the movie as much as i did and do. I'll be sharing the official trailer (which I don't own), and I hope you enjoy it ( + u + )
