Howl's Moving Castle Reviews
At the same time, Ghibli again has no antagonist, yet again dodging perhaps the biggest cliche of all time-- one that everyone ignores.
I rewatched this movie like 5 times, and would do it again. There is so much detail to be gained from rewatching it, and I highly recommend any Ghibli fan to do so.
That being said, Ghibli did take a f*ck up on this one, which was probably the author's fault (I forget quite what happened in the book); and that's the time paradox. Frankly, it makes as much sense as...nothing?
While bonus points from themes of war and the criticism of the world's current state makes up for the stink awful plot twist, it is still a flaw.
PS - Why for fucks sake is the studio listed as "Buena Vista"? WHERE DID THAT EVEN COME FROM!?
