Howl’s Moving Castle
Howl’s Moving Castle is a Studio Ghibli production based from the book of the same name. This has the main character, Sophie, cursed to live as an old woman due to her mistaken association with Howl. She eventually stumbles onto Howl’s castle, and learns more about Howl and the other characters in the castle. I loved the film, as it was a clear reflection of how vivid and colorful the book was. It does deviate a bit from its source, but nonetheless a fantastic work from Studio Ghibli.
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
CS Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia books didn’t make the transition onscreen quite well. However, I think the ones that were adapted to film were great books, though the film translation wasn’t as par. This was a great introduction to the film trilogy, as the elements of the movie weaved well together.
The Wizard of Oz
I haven’t read the book, nor the subsequent books, but I don’t think that will take away the enjoyment of the film. The Wizard of Oz is a classic, and rightly so. The effects may seem to be outdated, but still a wonderful film.
