Howl's Moving Castle

Howl's Moving Castle is yet another (since spirited away) wonderful animation film by Hayao Miyazaki. The story is like an enchanting dream. I also particularly like the voice overs of Calcifer and Sophie. The little girl sitting next to me was totally in awe at the end of the movie and asked her dad if they can see it again... I want to see it again, too...

Cinderella man

This is a heart-warming story about Boxer James J. Braddock's fairy-tale come-back during the great depression. The boxing scenes were very brutal, I had my eyes covered almost all the time. I like the family story behind the fights...

Return of the Sith

OK, I contributed mine $$ to the "Star Wars" finally. This might be the only one I actually saw in the theater. Nice special effects. But, I was a little tired of the endless life-saver flashes...The best acting was done by Yoda... It was more entertaining for me to watch this little boy sitting next to me started crying towards the end of the movie when Darth Vadar and Obewan Kanobe were fighting to their dooms. The little boy burried his head in his dad and refused to watch the movie anymore... Poor boy...! I wonder how dad is going to explain to him there is no point to be scared ? May the force be with you ?
