I've had an emotionally horrible and draining day, so let's talk about Howl's Moving Castle!

I have Complicated Feelings about the movie. In one hand, it's Ghibli, and it's lovely. On the other hand, they sort of missed the point of the book? Like, it is not in any way a bad film, but they sort of de-fanged the story - Howl is less of an asshole, Sophie is less of a nosy busybody, Markl is - actually, I've no idea what but certainly not Michael. They missed Howl's dramatic and offended sneezing, and most of all, the missed out on Wales. Oh god, Wales, that's one of the most intriguing parts of the book! And Howl's saucepan song XD

Uuuugh I'd love it if one day we got a live-action super close to the book movie version.

It also makes me sad to think that we will never get more adventures of Howl and Sophie. :(

In another subject I just rewatched Sunshine and it was just as good and creepy and claustrophobic as I rememebered. Just how I like my film sci-fi. And the multiple and lovingly close-ups of Chris Evans' eyelashes don't hurt.
