Saturday Book Review - 'Howl's Moving Castle'

There’s a reason I’m choosing to review Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle on this particular day. It has nothing to do with a new release, or a new edition, or anything like that – this book was first published in the mid 1980s, and it has since been made into an animé and all manner of fan-art and such – but because I’m meeting someone very important later who admitted to me a few weeks ago that they had never read it. 892 more words

Film Suggestion of the Week: Howl's Moving Castle (2004)

What probably fascinates me the most about Hayao Miyazaki’s movies is his persistent refusal to make the characters uni-dimensional. Throughout his illustrious career, Miyazaki has been careful to avoid the traditional format that many films geared toward young eyes often adopt: that of the clear distinction between Good and Evil, with the protagonists fighting to rid themselves of a villain that is evil purely for the sake of being so, and who shows no signs of having any personality beyond the negative characteristics that sustain the script. 609 more words
