With a little over three hundred million dollars of worldwide gross, Howl's Moving Castle is easily one of the most acclaimed and popular movies ever made. Due to its extremely high budget, the movie featured many of the best features of modern day Hollywood. It is true that the film industry is highly lucrative, but what the most notable difference is that an original story is told rather than a platter of cookie-cutter Hollywood product.
The movie was a success because of the talent alone, but it was also successful because of the production value. The director Guy Ritchie's low budget, but hard-working team gave the movie a visual style that matched the type of atmosphere that the story was meant to create. This is the main reason why a lot of movie buffs are excited about the movie.
The story of the movie is based on a series of novels written by British author Terry Pratchett. There are two parts to the Howl's Moving Castle Movie Serie: the first part was a collection of short stories called "Warnings". The second part included seven short films which were the main story of the movie. The short films are also divided into four sections: Blackadder Goes Hunting, Sodor, To the Ends of the Earth, and The Last Continent.
The three segments of the movie were each directed by an experienced, skilled and talented director. With the exception of Blackadder's segment, all three directors were accomplished directors of their own right. They did not only tackle the story of the movie, but also brought a different cinematic touch to the scenes to form a better movie.
The medieval theme of the movie had long since been a hot topic in the entertainment industry, but the directors of the movie bring it to life. The medieval times of England are brought vividly to life with historical background elements such as the fighting back. The fight scenes were spectacular with impressive acrobatics and dramatic poses, as well as fluid camera movements and lighting effects.
The sounds and music of the Howl's Moving Castle Movie Serie did not disappoint either. The musical score performed by the iconic Sir Christopher Lee brought a very memorable and emotional effect to the movie. The music was performed using a combination of classical and jazz genres to bring a certain amount of style to the scenes.
The movies in the Howl's Moving Castle Movie Serie were also made on a smaller scale than many Hollywood films. The smaller scale brought the same levels of excitement, but it also made the movie accessible to audiences of all ages. This is the reason why the movie is currently one of the highest rated and best selling movies of all time.
Despite all of its merits, the movie was not without its flaws. It had many problems such as an uninteresting story, the wrong ending, and the camera cutting too fast. However, these flaws were fortunately few compared to the positives that the movie brought to the table.
