            Hey guys! So I’m continuing my reviews of Miyazaki with another one of his award winners, Howl’s Moving Castle! I remember hearing about this one years ago when I was watching the Academy Awards and it was up for best animated movie, so I wasn’t going into this movie completely blind. This was in the middle of the Miyazaki marathon that I was doing, so I had a good feel on his style. Was the movie what I expected? Let’s find out!

            Howl’s Moving Castle was released in Japan in November of 2004, but premiered in Venice of September 2004 at the 61st Venice International Film Festival. Later, in June of 2005, the movie was released in the US and Canada, bringing in a total of $235 million worldwide. The film was actually based off of a novel written by Diana Wynne Jones and was part of a series that centered on the two main characters, Howl and Sophie.

            The movie is based in a fictional land, which has heavy European influence, which Miyazaki designed during a trip to France. It’s a world where there are Wizards and witches about that are legally allowed to function, as long as the serve the royal family of their respective domains. Also, the citizens of this world are used to seeing strange things, because they don’t even blink twice when they see the moving castle cross their plains like a crab on a beach.

            Now the movie has a relatively small cast. It follows Sophie, Howl, the Witch of the Waste, and Madame Suliman. Let’s check them out!

            Sophie, voiced by Emily Mortimer and Jean Simmons, is the movie’s main protagonist. She is an 18-year-old girl who is a very skilled worker in a hat shop. However, she gets cursed by the Witch of the Waste for pretty much no reason what so ever, becoming a 90 year old woman. Fearing what she became, she runs away to start a new life and ends up working for the Wizard Howl. Overall, Sophie is a hard working woman who is kind of a stick in the mud. She’s not a spur of the moment character and is very, for lack of a better word, blah. She’s kind of boring and her actions after getting cursed was understandable, but nothing what you expect from the character as you learn more about her.

            Next we have the wizard Howl, voiced by Christian Bale aka BATMAN!!!! Believe or not, the Batman voice does make it into the movie during a dream… hallucination sequence… thing? Anyway, Howl is a powerful wizard who actually acts as a wizard for 4 different kingdoms, all under false names. He is in love with his vanity and wants to be seen as an attractive male. This obsession with looks probably comes from the ability to change himself into a gruesome bird-like creature, which he does his ass kicking in. He comes across as a goofy character at first, but you soon realize it that that was all a front. The creature in him plagues him and he usually alienates himself during moments where he cannot control it. He’s an interesting character, but I cannot feel attached to him.

            Next we have the Witch of the Waste, played by Lauren Bacall. The witch is another person who is obsessed with vanity, though she obviously doesn’t take much care in feeding that obsession. She is a very large woman who used to date Howl, until he became disgusted with the way she looked. She goes crazy essentially and starts to just follow him and curse girls he flirts with for no other reason. She’s just a bad guy and there is really not much else to her. She’s not even that entertaining to watch be evil. I feel like they dropped the ball a little on her.

            Lastly, the last main character this story has is Madame Suliman, voiced by Blythe Danner. Madame Suliman is the chief witch of the kingdom that Sophie lives in and she is also Howl’s mentor. She isn’t necessarily a bad person, just doing what she needs to do in order to protect her kingdom. She does this by ordering the Witch of the Waste and Howl to the castle to essentially strip their magic powers away from them, because they refused to take part in the war. She’s a woman who plots and schemes, trying to set a trap Howl. However, I would very much have liked to see where this character would have gone to if they developed her more. Most of these characters I feel a little cheated on, all of them are underdeveloped. But I will get to that in a little bit.

            Now there are other characters in the story like Calcifer, played by Billy Crystal, Markl, played by Josh Hutcherson, and the Prince aka Turnip Head, played by Crispi Freeman, but they are just there in the story and don’t feed it as much as these four.

            Now the romance in the story is primarily between Sophie and Howl, with a little bit of a Love Triangle which includes the Witch of the Waste but not really. Here’s my problem with this romance: They fall in love with each other in 30 seconds of meeting! He literally takes her away because he’s being chased and needed a distraction, jumps off a balcony, and flies over to the next balcony with very few words exchange! Yet, they are hot and heavy for each other in that time! Now, when Sophie gets cursed, Howl, or I believe, knows that it’s the same girl and doesn’t throw her out of his castle because of that. She starts working for him and they build a relationship together, not a romantic one, but something. This is where you would establish that they are in love with each other and not at the beginning of the movie.

            The art of the movie, like all Miyazaki movies, is breath taking. The character designs and scenery is at its peak form in the movie and is probably the one saving grace of it.

            The story itself, overall, is boring and confusing. It was classic Miyazaki storytelling where he tries to shove a message down your throat. In this movie, its anti-war and how it is meaningless and only brings death and destruction. These messages need to be written in more subtly in order for better story telling. Other than that message, I just don’t get it. There was no real reason for Sophie to be cursed, no reason for her to run away, the curse is never broken on her, and they live happily ever after as if the war that was raging just decided to erase itself from everyone’s mind. I guess the second message is to not judge a person by their appearance? But, Sophie was cool with that from the start and Howl doesn’t learn it. Sophie is her young self randomly and is most of the time in old woman form. He rarely interacts with her when she looks like a 90 year old woman.

    Out of all of the Miyazaki movies, this was clearly the weakest. If it wasn’t for the art in this, I would say just to skip it. I was bored a lot of the time and feel like something was missing. If not missing, than there was too much to it. The film runs for 2 hours and can easily be made into a 90 minute or less movie. So overall, if you’re a fan of Miyazaki’s art, check it out, if  not I say skip it and watch a better Miyazaki film.

Film’s rating: C-

Howl’s Moving Castle www.veoh.com/watch/v208113346G…

            I don’t think there is a human alive who can say they have never heard of the Star Wars series. Since the 1970’s, the franchise has been winning the hearts of  people of all ages. Now, those of you who have read my reviews know that I am a fan of Star Wars. I did a review of the Star Wars: Clone Wars not too far back and fell in love with the series all over again. The story was gripping, dark, edgy, and gave viewers the ability to think on some of the heavy stories that the show presented its audience with. I even went on to say it was one of my favorite TV shows of all time! So when I heard of a second Star Wars series in the 3D animation, I had high expectations going in. What I got though… let’s do the review shall we?

            Star Wars Rebels premiered in October of 2014 on Disney XD, Disney Channel, and ABC. Only one season in, Rebels has 13 episodes, leaving the door open for a second season. After the huge success of Clone Wars and the newly acquired rights to the franchise, Disney wanted to continue to grow interest of their younger viewers. Which may be the show’s first mistake. The show’s target market is for kids between the ages of 8 and 13 and can easily be shown on Saturday mornings. Clone Wars didn’t have a target market, it was shown to tell a story that held true to the source material and entertain all ages. However, the darker content and color palet definitely makes you imagine this being on during a Friday night evening, maybe some family time. Now, it may be a little unfair comparing the shows together, but Rebels does reference Clone Wars quite a bit, establishing the two are connected. So ha!

            Rebels takes primarily in the Lothal system, a planet which is Earth-like, but is primarily plains and fields of grass with the occasional outcropping of rocks. This series is based in between episodes III and IV, where the empire has control over the systems, however, there is no rebellion yet. There’s not too much going on this planet, other than it is the center of operations for our core group, who I will get to in a moment. The planet exports TIE Fighters for the empire, as well as small amounts of Kyber crystals, the crystals that power light sabers and blasters. Now, this to me falls into the complaint bin that a lot of people had with Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra: the scenery is too stagnant in the newer series. In Clone Wars, we are constantly bouncing from system to system, encountering new life forms and seeing planets that we never even thought were possible to animate. In Rebels, its really just a wheat filled planet whose primary color palate is gold and brown. It leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion.

            Now the cast of the show does have variety! We have Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Zeb, Sabine, and Chopper. Let’s dive into them!

            First we have the show’s main protagonist, Ezra Bridger, voiced by Taylor Gray. Ezra is an orphan living on the planet Lothal as a conartist, stealing and running from Imperial Storm Troopers to survive. He accidentally stumbles into the rest of the group and after showing some untapped Jedi powers, joins the group. Ezra is a little cocky, loud, and undisciplined, but is quick and knowledgeable and can come up with a plan in a pinch. He is definitely geared towards the young teenage/tween market though. I personally find him very annoying. I don’t know if it’s the character or the voice actor, but I actually find myself not at all interested in his story. He does have a promisingly dark backstory, but his attitude just puts me off in a way where I cant give a crap. There are other points that I will make about him later on when I discuss story.

            Next we have Kanan Jarrus, played by Freddie Prinze, Jr. Kanan is the leader of this small rebel cell and is very fun to watch. He keeps the mission in mind and is willing to takes risks when necessary, but he can be fooled and shows a lot of compassion towards his crew. However, Kanan is also a Jedi in hiding. Due to the end game of the Clone Wars, the clone troopers executed all of the Jedi. Kanan, along with other Jedi we don’t know, survived and went into hiding. However, the show hints that he is actually not a true Jedi but a fallen one who is trying to rediscover his path and keep the Jedi tradition going. He’s a very well thought-out character and is my personal favorite on the show. If you compare Kanan and his voice actor side by side, they actually look similar…

            Next up, we have Hera Syndulla, voiced by Vanessa Marshall. Hera is the pilot of the rebel frigate “Ghost” and also the 2nd in command to the rebel cell. She is a tough character that takes very little from the rest of her crew, but she is very motherly towards them, realizing that they need someone to support them and talk to. She is another fun character to watch and a very close second to Kanan! Oh, she’s also kind of hot for a Twi’lek!

            Next we have Garazeb “Zeb” Orrelios, voiced by the very talented Steve Blum. Zeb is a Lasat, who is the last of his kind and the last of the Lasat honor guard. He si a big, athletic, and cunning warrior and acts as the muscle for the crew. He is typically an angry character, fighting his depression of losing his species and just being annoyed by living in a confined space with others. Despite this angry demeanor, he is caring and has a good sense of humor. He befriends Ezra after a while of being together and they get in trouble together. Now, he’s a cool character and can be very smart, but the antics that he and Ezra get into are just kind of dumb. Come on, dude, you’re smarter than this.

            Next to last we have Sabine Wren, played by Tiya Sircar. Sabine is a little bit of a mystery. She’s from Mandalore, or at least went to the Imperial Academy on Mandalore. How she got the Mandalore battle armor, I would love to know. She’s a fun character, very creative and rebellious, who left the Imperial Academy after feeling oppressed and kept in the dark. She’s a dead shot and a hacker, so she does come in handy with the crew. The only thing I don’t like about the character is that she is more or less just there as a gender foil for Ezra. She’s probably 16 to 18 years old and is very attractive, but is that really helping the story out? Like I mentioned with Ezra, I’ll address this in a bit.

            Finally, we have Chopper, the crews C1-10P asteroid droid. He is the handy-man of the crew and handles a lot of the ship’s technical issues and odds and ends. He is a fiery little thing, often getting jealous of other droids and feeling under appreciated. This is probably due to the fact that he is an old model of droid and is often over looked by the rest of the crew. He gives the audience a lot of laughs and its hard to hate droids… unless you’re C3-PO!

            There are main antagonists in the show, but they are very under developed. There is little motivation for them to be evil and dick-ish other than its part of working for the Empire. Eventually, they have to show that there are people in the Empire who are trying to make life better for the everyday person, but that’s not happening right now.

            The romances in the show is not completely in your face, but they do add some question marks to the show’s story. The relationships are Ezra and Sabine and Kanan and Hera. Ezra and Sabine, like I mention before, is just Ezra having a huge crush on an older girl who doesn’t want to give him the time of day. Now, Kanan and Hera, the series hints that there is something between them, but is the shorts that the show made to advertise the series, the fully establish that the two of them are in a relationship of some degree. This further makes me believe that he is a fallen Jedi, because it is clear he is not fully committed to the dark side, but confuses you tremendously!

            The art for the show, unlike Clone Wars, is very round and animated in a more traditional style. The show takes a lot from the original trilogy and actually use a lot of the original concept art in the characters of the show. Zeb and Chopper are extremely close to looking like the original designs of Chewbacca and R2-D2, respectably. The action and the motions of the characters are great and very fluid, making it easy to keep up with the show and get the audience involved.

            Now the story itself, or the main theme of the show, is about this one cell of rebels taking on the Empire’s injustices and trying to connect with other rebel cells to overthrow the Empire. However, the show usually focuses on this small rebel cell messing with the Empire’s base on Lothal. Another story line is Ezra learning the ways of the force and becoming a Jedi. Now this is a major problem with the show I have, so I’ll break it down. They establish that Kanan is not suited for the role of a teacher, he even admits that his training was never 100% completed. He’s a Jedi, but not a Jedi master. Though, being contacted by Yoda in a hidden Jedi temple to continue to teach Ezra and himself, he still ignores a lot of the basic Jedi teachings. The primary thing that Kanan focuses on with Ezra is how to properly wield a light saber! True, this is probably an important skill to have in a rebel cell, but he’s learning to become a Jedi. Kanan ignores the basic teachings of the light and dark side of the force, the idea of detaching yourself from emotion and people, and trusting in your instincts and the way the force. Ezra chasing Sabine is not a hidden fact, yet Kanan isn’t telling him that love leads to the dark side. True, he and Hera are hot and heavy, but if he’s teaching Ezra how to become a Jedi, he can’t leave this stuff out! Ezra also has an ego, but yet gets scared quite often, which are other key things that lead to the dark side. Despite all of this, you can understand why Jedi are chosen so young, because you can mold them instantly to understand the difference between good and evil. Ezra is falling into the  same path as Anikan and Luke, having trouble seeing the differences between the light and dark side. The difference is Luke gets it in the end, and Anikan was banging Natalie Portman, so no one can blame him.

            Now, with all of that said, do I dislike the show? No. It is very different and not on the same level as Clone Wars, but it is interesting to see where this series goes. The main story is clever and fun, the characters, for the most part, are solid, and its expanding the Star Wars universe! The only thing that can bring this show down is Jar Jar Binks, who I hope is dead at this point. I strongly recommend this show but just don’t expect Clone Wars.

Show rating: B+

            Hey, guys! So I just started school, dealing with work, and doig all sorts of other little stuff like looking into blog sites, trying to find a new job, still looking for a girl, and so much more! All of those things have lead me to not be consistent with my reviews! I know I have all of Miyazaki’s films to do. I know I have to finish up my favorite anime shows. And I know I have to review Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood! So in the mean time, I am putting this together to maybe fill you thirst for my reviews! Here are my top 5 hottest animated Women! Oh, and I will be posting links to these women at the end for your viewing pleasure. 

5) Kim Possible from Kim Possible. Kim is a high school cheerleader full time, but part time Do-Gooder! Wait… maybe switch the two? Anyway, she saves the world, cheers, is uber smart, and is a tight, fit, redhead! Who wouldn’t want her? Well, I place her at number five because in the early seasons of the show, she is a huge bitch. Her personality softens up as the show goes on, but she does start out as your typical cheerleader-cool kid. Also being voiced by Christy Romano helps a ton!

4) Elisa Maza from Gargoyles. Elisa is a NYPD detective who stumbles upon these ancient gargoyles and witnesses a whole bunch of crazy shit! She’s a tough woman who refuses to stop until the job gets done and has a take-no-shit attitude. Hell, she gets shot accidentally in one episode and almost dies, but she recovers and gets right back to the grind! Though she is never in her NYPD blues, I bet you she can turn heads when she is in uniform.

3) Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Faye is a bounty hunter who works, on and off, with the crew of the Bebop. Even though she has the body of a twenty-something year old, she is actually is her 70’s. She was cryogenically frozen after an accident that wiped her memory and she now has to live her life displaced in time. She’s a hardass and a very seductive. However, she does have a sensitive side to her to let you know that she does have a soul. Though the main question everyone has is how does she fit into that tiny yellow suit? 

2) Selina Kyle aka Catwoman from Batman: The Animated Series. Yes, I know this is not the Selina Kyle who is an ex-prostitute, but my god is she so seductive! Her voice, played by Adriana Barbeau, works great for a woman who has clout and someone who should be taken seriously. She looks great out of the Catwoman outfit and so sexy in the grey, skin-tight suit. I don’t know how Batman doesn’t pop a Bat-boner with her rubbing herself against him. He’s just the better man, I guess.

1) Rogue from X-Men Evolutions. This may be an odd choice for some because a lot would go with Rogue from X-Men TAS, but I feel like this Rogue is much more realistic, and the purest definition of a suicide girl. Oh. My. God. She’s the one girl that you know you can never have! You can look, but you can’t touch! On top of that, she has that outward tough appearance, but she is a very kind and gentle girl with her insecurities. Maybe because I can relate to her personality I find her more attractive? I don’t know, but she’s a smoke show!

So, that is my top 5 Hottest Animated Women! Just remember, that I have my opinion and a review page, so don’t judge me! More reviews and stuff are heading your way! Also, look out for the link to the blog page!

    Hey, guys! So I am continuing this marathon of Miyazaki with one of his more popular movies this time around, Princess Mononoke. I only ever heard of it and never really knew what to make of the character but to place it somewhere in the world of Inyuyasha, and no, I will not review that series. I was kind of right on that assumption, but mainly wrong. This was a little bit different for a Miyazaki movie for a couple of reasons, which I will now break down for your reading delight! Here is Princess Mononoke!

    Once again, Studio Ghibli, Miyazaki’s animation studio, produced the movie for $23.5 million and released in to Japanese theaters in July of 1997. Two years later, Miramax Films received permission to translate and distribute the film and released it to theaters in October of 1999, only bringing in $144,446 in the US. However, the film did very successfully on video and together brought in about $166 million worldwide. With the success of Miramax, studio Ghibli and Miyazaki began to explore releasing other films in the west, which is where Disney decided to step in.

            Fun fact: This was originally going to be Miyazaki’s last film before he retired. However, due to the success of it, he came up with Spirited Away and all of the other films to follow.

            The movie is based in ancient Japan, when magic and mythical beings walked the Earth next to man, which sounds a lot like that one episode of Legend of Korra come to think of it… The scenery and locations throughout the movie, once again, are beautiful and up to Miyazaki’s standards.

            Now the films follows the characters of Ashitaka, San, Jigo, and Lady Eboshi, along with various gods and spirits. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

            Ashitaka, voiced by Billy Crudup, is a prince from the Emishi tribe, a secluded tribe that stays well away from the outside world. He is poisoned by a forest spirit while protecting his village. Knowing there is no cure, Ashitaka leaves his village trying to prevent what had happened to his village from happening elsewhere before he dies. During his quest, he comes across a town that produces iron and weapons to the others and finds that it was them who had started enraging the spirits. From there, he tries to fix what he can and provide a balance between the town and nature. Overall, Ashitaka is a good character. He is likable and not the arrogant hero type. He’s humble in his fighting ability and will stop at nothing to do the right thing. However, he is conflicted with finding the balance between human life and the lives of the forest spirits. I like him a lot and had a lot of fun seeing him interact with others in this story.

            Next we have everyone’s favorite character, San, voiced by Claire Danes. San, or more commonly known as Princess Mononoke for those who have not seen the film, is a human girl who was raised by wolves and mothered by the wolf spirit of the forest. For the constant killing of the wolves and having the hides used for clothing, San and the other wolves have a strong hated towards humans. Well, until Ashitaka comes around. San is a tough girl who will stop at nothing to keep the forest from corroding away. I like her a lot as she begins to develop feelings for Ashitaka  but still hates all humans. Her fight scenes are also very impressive and definitely makes the movie that much better.

            Next we have Lady Eboshi, voiced by Minnie Driver. Lady Eoshie is the mistress of Irontwon and provides a safe haven for everyone, of all walks of life, to live their lives in safety. She brings girls from brothels to work the steel mill, saving them from selling their bodies, the men are allowed to go about their business by farming, hunting and everything else. Hell, this woman also employs and takes in people suffering from leprosy! She seems like a hero! However, she has used her economic power and advance technology to make rifles and uses them to kill any forest spirit that stands between her and the iron ore that is in the hill sides of the forrest. My god what a great and complicated character! She has so much going on and yet she is the films main antagonist! You cant hate her because of what she has done for the people of Irontown, but she is going after forest spirits because they are preventing progress! Now the audience knows what Ashitaka is going through when he finds Irontown and the reason for the attack on his village. She is by far my favorite character in the movie and being voiced by Minnie Driver doesn’t hurt either (blushing like a little girl).

            The last main character in the film is Jigo, voiced by Billy Bob Thornton. I don’t know about you, but everytime I hear Thornton’s voice or see him in a movie, my skin crawls. However, I think that works well for this character! He is a monk who is kind of a pot stirrer and is working with everyone in the movie, but has his own agenda of bringing the head of the main forest spirit to the Emperor of the land. When you first meet him, you don’t trust him instantly. He is looking for something, but you’re not sure what exactly. He’s fun to watch and another good character in the film.

            The romance in the movie is a little weird. Its almost not necessary! Ashitaka and San develop a thing for each other. Ashitaka falls victim to “love at first sight.” However, his first shot of San is her sucking the poison out of her mother’s wounds and she is covered in blood. Kinky… San, however, needs times to develop feelings for Ashitaka. Driven by his feelings for her, he rescues her once or twice from being killed and does some other things that make her think, “Wow, this human isn’t that bad.” However, they don’t end up together at the end. Ashitaka remains at Irontown to protect them from the spirits and themselves and San stays in the woods to revitalize nature and see to it that the spirits don’t go crazy. Do they meet up every now and then to chill? I don’t know, but this I feel is the weakest part of the story, which is weird because Miyazaki’s other films focus around the romance and he conveys it very well.

            Animation, like always, is breathe taking. The character designs are great and really mesh well with each other. The only thing that really confused me from this movie to the rest of Miyazaki is that this movie was extremely gory. A lot of blood, a lot of de-limbing. Like I saw someone’s head get blown off from an arrow strike! I guess he wanted to go out on a bang because this had a lot of blood in it, more so than Spirited Away.

            The story is probably one of Miyazaki’s best! It grabs you from the start and lays itself out in front of the audience without giving too much. Unlike other Miyazaki’s films, the film had a very clear point, which was environmentalism, a theme in almost all of his films. Though not subtle at all, it was refreshing to walk away from the movie knowing what was going on. I especially like the fact that he didn’t bastardize industrialism and human growth. The message Miyazaki was trying to say is that there has to be a happy medium between nature and civilization.

            Overall, Princess Mononoke is one of my favorite Miyazaki movies, if not his best. I would recommend this movie to everyone who appreciates great animation and a solid story. Please, go and see this movie!
