Last Week: Thunderball (1965)
Coming Next: Paprika (2006)
Believe it or not, no matter how pretty and well animated this film is it’s the only Miyazaki film that I don’t like. I definitely need to revisit it in the future.
I like most (not all- some are boring) of Miyazaki’s movies but this is my favorite. The others I particularly like are TOTORO and PORCO ROSSO.
HOWL is the only anime where I prefer the dubbed version. The English voice cast is just more interesting, especially the women: Jean Simmons, Emily Mortimer, Lauren Bacall, Blythe Danner. Billy Crystal is a lot funnier than his Japanese counterpart too.
Doesn’t Christian Bale voice Howl?
Yes he does. He does a good job but the women steal the show.
As can be expected. :O)
