It's a Wednesday and I do not have classes. But that does not mean that I do not have a pile of things to do. Gosh, I still have this bed-weather mood (after yesterday's Bagyong Pedring) even though the sun is up above today. And so I decided to watch a movie before starting my laboratory reports due Monday.
My friend, Poch, gave me this movie. I do not have the slightest idea what is this all about. Since I believe that in times like these, I need to follow my heart (naks!). And so, my heart tells me to watch this movie among others.
And yes, it is worth my time. I felt like the movie was light... Though my mind is battling that it is heavy. I dunno. Maybe its because the movie didn't fail to balance the "heavy" scenes with the lights ones. There is balance.
The movie was presented in such a way that even children would understand. Also, the influence and the lessons that can one can get from this movie are priceless.
It talks about a lot of things.
Oh. There's the magic word again.
Here's one of my favorite quotable quotes from the movie:
Howl: Why? I'm done running away.
Finally, Ive found something worth protecting with my life.
My most favorite part/thing in the movie:
The FRONT DOOR.
Intriguing? Hell yeah!
It is so interesting that it depicts a lot of things.
There was a moment that I wanted to have that FRONT DOOR for myself. Wanna know what's behind and what is in that front door? See it yourself! ;)
After watching, I had this interest of searching the web for things about the movie and found out that this movie is based from the novel, Howl's Moving Castle, written by a Brit author Dianna Wynne Jones. Hayao Miyazaki adapted and was able to produce an Academy Award-nominated film of the same title.
Hayao Miyazaki is also behind the movie Spirited Away, which I found to be really amazing. And so I have said to myself that Miyazaki guy has the thing for witches, wizards, and ghost-like characters. I like the idea of presenting something in a form that not just adults will have an interest in it. It is also important that the young minds will have the chance of watching these kind of films. And so, what are these children interested in? Of course, Anime.
And so I decided that I will watch the other movies directed by Hayao Miyazak. In the first place, I do have a copy of his movies. I just didn't know it until today.
Thank you Poch for sharing such good movies!
