  4. Aulia Indry's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    actually a good movie, like other Miyazaki movies. But somehow I feel there is part of the plot missing and do not get the right causality for the next scene. And again the editing is very easy although wearing flashback is not excessive portions. There are strange things that seem to a child who watch will feel confused

  5. Bob's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Animation that looks like postcards and colorful characters push this pure cinema piece on a level where classic narration is no longer relevant. Instead, as the story develops, it takes direction where time and being are just shades that are reflecting allegorical painting, whose sublimity mirrors the beauty of the visuals. Richness of details it offers, calls for many enjoyable revisits.

  7. Kenzozo's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Acceptation in every way of it in the name of feelings betwen characters and creator. 4.2

  8. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    The transient nature of the castle & backdrop of encroaching war suggest a subtext of how war itself displaces people. It's a rich idea & one that plays beautifully to the film's sensitive depiction of old age. Few films give time to the struggles faced by those at the end of life, but here the character's attempts to find peace are interrupted by the adventure; creating a kind of meaning; like life in some respects.

  9. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    As all Studio Ghibli films it is an unique animated film. This one makes the heroine into an old woman and there is a flying moving castle that she needs to find. Perfect hand drawn imagery grabs my imagination from beginning to end. But I felt it has an too abrupt ending to be 100% satisfying.

  12. Ben Nash's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Bursting with energy, but like 'Spirited Away' it feels like there's a little bit too much going on and not enough time given to let it develop.

  13. Barbara Martire's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    it takes strength to be gentle and kind

  14. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

  15. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Nuovamente mi trovo stupito davanti alla vastità creativa della mente di Miyazaki, il cui tratto di matita, seppur semplice, riesce sempre a dar vita a personaggi profondamente caratterizzati. Annichilito lo stereotipo delle storie principesche coi loro banali e ben stabili castelli, Howl e Sophie reinventano il genere, con una favola di magia autentica, seconda solo alla permanenza di Chihiro nella Città Incantata.

  16. Zach Closs's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    I tend to have trouble with films where magic is a non-issue. It affords filmmakers the ability to make things up as they go, and excuse glaring inconsistencies by changing the rules of the world on the fly. There are also weird tonal shifts and pacing issues that make "Howl" feel like a minor entry Miyazaki's canon. That should hardly suggest it isn't a pleasure to watch. Bale is excellent, as is Hishiashi's score.

  17. Star Lord's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Il castello errante di Howl.

  18. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Rewatched and re-loved. TOP film.

  19. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    A little gilded and resplendent for my tastes. I hadn't seen this much decorative gold in a film until I watched 'Curse of the Golden Flower'! Perhaps its focus upon artifice and architectural (in spite of a critical stance) means the presence of the organic in its awesome otherness is less keenly felt. In this sense, 'Howls's Moving Castle' is to Miyazaki's filmography what 'The Emperor's Nightingale' is to Trnka's.

  20. FISCHER's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    D'une richesse conceptuelle et thématique vaste et fournie, cette tortueuse quête de l'identité, entre tendre histoire d'amour et constante poésie du merveilleux, confirme à nouveau Hayao Miyazaki comme un des plus grands maîtres de l'animation japonaise. www.cinefiches.com

  22. chad's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    My MUBI review this week is on Howl’s Moving Castle another studio Ghibli film.This film is an amazing piece of work it tells a story of a young girl who is wrongfully cursed by a witch and forced to look old and decrepit but she meets an enchanted young man and has a marvelous journey. If you love narrative stories and animated films this is a must see. This critic gives this film a ten out of ten and two thumbs up.

  23. LaliMB's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    Amazing movie, best soundtrack ever

  24. KATIEDEESE's rating of the film Howl's Moving Castle

    This is one of my all time favorite animated films ever. This movie veers away from a typical animated fantasy movie with the damsal in distress to a strong protangonist that grows throughout the movie. I really enjoyed the beautiful non diagetic music in the background and the scenery that the movie provides. This movie isnt just an adventure it has elements of comedy from calcifer as well as an element of romance.
