Some great movies.......

No Music today.....so instead I give you Hayao Miyazaki's 2004 adaptation of Dianna Wynne Jone's book " Howl's Moving Castle". For those that don't know Hayao Miyazaki, he is a well known director of some amazing anime, my favorites being this,Princess Mononoke,Spirited Away,and Nausicaa, Valley of the Wind.
These being but 4 on a list of many successes for the man,as well as the founding of the great Studio Ghibli, I suggest that you take a minute or two to look into his long list of works, definitely an important factor in Japanese cinema.

Anyway,Darrylynn and I were watching this last night and I remembered that Youtube used to have a bunch of his movies uploaded in parts. Before they were taken down,they had all 4 that I mentioned above, all of them Disney's overdubbed adaptations,which are all done quite well if you ask me. I had meant to post Princess Mononoke first but I can't find it . The only one left is Howl's Moving Castle,which by no means is
a consolation. It's very good,the animation is beautiful,and the
story is on par with most any that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Here it is,in 12 parts.
