    Howl's Moving Castle

    ★★★★

    First of all: the animation on this movie might be the best of any in Miyazaki's work. This movie looks incredible.

    The first 1:40 are A-tier Miyazaki -- inventive and intuitive with fantastic characters. The last 20 minutes look down and see no cliff beneath their feet. It's a really disappointing way to end an otherwise fantastic film.

    Beautifully shot, with an amazing score and some stand-out sequences (the bar, damn). The blood transfusion thing is pretty weak, though.

    Also I didn't realize that Buffy stole the vampmobile from this, so that was cool.

    Decent for the first hour or a little more, if way overdirected. The third act is a sad fart, until the very final moment, which is... a choice.

    And man Villeneuve likes that yellow filter in this movie.

    ★★★½

    This is a great movie to watch with your parents once and then never think about again
