As with the past few Fridays we were released early from work having finished all our orders ahead of schedule. Thusly, I'm home early.

I'm probably going to see Howl's Moving Castle tomorrow mid-day or early afternoon before going back to work overtime. It's playing at Southtowne & Market Square. Anyone care to join me?

I saw this movie when it was being played at WestGate(?). I thought it was a good movie, though I wish they had shown the dubbed version as I dislike trying to watch a movie and read it at the same time. Plus the dubbed version has Billy Crystal and Christian Bale who will be appearing at either this or next years ACEN. Have fun.

I'd like to go...but, there are three things stopping me:
1. Working at my grandpa's store tomorrow during the day
2. Funeral
3. Working at the restaurant tomorrow night

I loved this movie. If you haven't seen it yet, GO WITH JIM! It wasn't as good as Spirited Away (IMHO), but it's certainly better than ANYTHING Disney has done in recent memory.

And, unlike HollyAnn, I don't mind reading. Although, admittedly, I probably understand quite a bit more Japanese and use such experiences as a learning tool. I guess that makes me a huge nerd and/or freak!

I just got back & it's great. Now I need to see it again with subtitles. The buildup & character development is done very well throughout most of it but about 3/4 in it started to fall apart & tried to rely on the action in the finale to keep things together. It didn't, but I'll give it another go to try to figure things out.

Yeah, they didn't quite explain why they had to take Calsifer out of the "castle", only to let it fall apart & then go right back in again.

Oh, that.

Well, you saw the dub, correct? Even in the subtitled version they left a lot out of the Japanese dialogue, leading me to proclaim "that's not right!" on more than one occasion. Don't feel bad that you felt a little lost -- it's all in the trasnlation.
