*And* the mouse on my home machine is acting up again, and cleaning it out didn't seem to help. Grr.( Collapse )
Feh. Anyways. As we had a surprise afternoon off, RQ and I caught Howl's Moving Castle
. As with all the Miyazaki works, it's visually beautiful. (Also, like his other works, it's got a freakin' hippie message in it, but hey.
) It was good, a little rambling, and the plot was, well, I'll go with contrived, but forgivable for a kids movie. Also, IMHO, Billy Crystal was too recognizable for a main character voice. But no, I did enjoy it.
I think I liked Spirited Away
better, but I also haven't seen Porco Rosso
. Also, Miyazaki really has a thing for hideous, oversized old women. Seriously, it's a little weird.
Only new trailer was for Herbie
, this one with more Michael Keaton. Uh, OK. Muvico seems to now only be showing two trailers in front of movies, and let me tell you, I have my letter of complaint half-written already.
