    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)
