Anyone seen this film? From the same makers of Spirited Away, which is great.
I thought Howl's Moving Castle was excellent too. I adore Miyazaki and these are two great animations.

i got that from a 150$ amazon gift certificate i got from citibank for keeping my credit card in good standing since 1999.
other stuff i get from buzzagent dot com (i JUST got my free wine opener this morning).

i got a free backpack from apple.

i mean the free stuff i get is from:
buzzagent...
always asking... like i got dotmac free for 3 months after doing the trial just for asking..
and lastly keeping all my accounts in good standing... not one late payments in years, you can call companies and ask them for free stuff just for paying for shit. t mobile gave me 50 extra minutes a month just for asking (thats nothing at & t gave my mother 350 free anytime minutes a month just for asking)

there was even a report in some show about how much free shit you can get by just asking... (politely of course)

i got a free year of one on one training from apple for asking. :)

Ooooh I really like Howl's Moving Castle, amazing visuals but also a really good story with characters that you can actually care about. It's got a great voice-cast as well (well the English version has anyway...) including Christian Bale, Billy Crystal and Lauren Bacall. :cool:

Think I prefer Princess Mononoke though :D

Gemma, I always knew you have awesome taste ;) Isn't it brilliant!? I love it. Really surreal and bonkers, but really captivating. Disney *used* to make films like this.

I've still not seen Princess Mononoke!! Really want to though.

Ah, all the films by these makers are excellent, well all the ones I've seen anyway...Mononoke is my favourite but not for any real reason, I just like the story more or something, also that one has Scully voicing a character! :cool: You should hunt it down, I know you'd enjoy!

Howl's is just an extremely well made film in general with a great story that has layers and substance, which is like you said something that Disney used to do...plus you've got to love any film which is slightly surealistic and mildly insane, that's always interesting! ;) I actually almost bought this on dvd earlier today as a gift to give my brother but decided against it as it's probably not a film he'd enjoy, a bit too weird for his taste really ;)

Lol surreal and insane rockz ;) Yeah I totally agree, they're wonderful films. They actually think beyond the fact that it is animation. <Take note Disney> ;)

Scully wot swung it I bet ;)

I just treated myself to the Howl's dvd. It's tres excellente! So what did dvd you get for your brother after? I had to disappear quickly in the music thread earlier so missed any developments!

Ooooh I got him Taxi Driver, The Italian Job (Michael Caine version of course ;) ) and also Crash so it's a mix of classic/generally-accepted-to-be-great-films and a modern one which is supposed to be great/interesting/cool although I've yet to watch it so it could poo and he'll think I'm crazy for thinking he would enjoy that film...;) I was *incredibly* tempted to quickly watch Crash before wrapping it up and sending it to him, you know all in the interest of product quality testing :angel: ;) but didn't have enough time before I had to get into uni so just had to wrap and post it straight away.

And yes, you found me out :eek: The sole reason I prefer Princess Mononoke is Scully's involvement! :lol: ;) Actually I do seem to enjoy almost anything she's in...either she just picks things that are well written/made or else everything she touches is golden...:eek: ;)

Taxi Driver is one of the best films EVER!!! :yeah: What a brilliant sister you are ;) I reckon he'll like that if he likes the Godfather, a man of taste. The Italian Job :yeah: Oh Crash is a good film <despite my misgivings;)> lol you should've sent the others and sent Crash on later after you watched it..."oops i forgot to send it..."

Love is blind ;) Did you see her in the BBC's Bleak House last December? She was excellent!

Hehe! ;) I did indeed, actually enjoyed it very much even though I'm not a fan of Charles Dickens...must have been the Scully influence again ;)...I bought the book for my mum and am slightly tempted to read it myself.

lol Yeah it's a good book. I'm not a huge Dickens fan either but enjoyed it. I find his books have too many coincidences...but considering his stuff was serialised at the time you can understand that.
Btw, Scully isn't in the book unfortunately ;)

What?! So you mean to say there is no FBI agent ferreting around in his novel, uncovering vast government conspiracies and continually getting into harms way?! :eek: Honestly what the Dickens (:lol: ) was he thinking?! To not include what I'm sure was an integral part of 17th/18th/whatever Century England is just a travesty. I may not read this book now, as a form of protest against his blatent censorship of the truth. I think he writes for the cigarette-smoking man... ;)

I knooooooooooooooooooooow! Bloody Dickens. I think he's involved in a giant conspiracy theory. Bet he shot JFK too!

And I was disgusted that Pride & Prejudice had no car chasing scene. Pfffft.

Indeed, Sian, indeed. They think they can fool us but we know better, we're onto them...we know the truth...;)

The truth is out there!! Jane Austen was responsible for the crop circles. FACT!


Or something ;)
