bought image album for new Miyazaki film, which is an adaptation of Diana Wynne Jones' novel Howl's Moving Castle.
This is truly beautiful. And Joe Hisaishi (the score's composer) is back at the Western European musical stuff, for the first time since Laputa.

So the SCORE isn't going to leave the book weeping.
  • I'm a fan of Diana Wynne Jones's books.

    better than rowling
    • throw me an email address at colubra @ livejournal . com (remove the spaces, obviously) to which I can toss a several-meg quicktime movie, and you can watch the Japanese teaser-trailer for the film. It's amazing how much of the little details out of the book are RIGHT THERE in the trailer. I'd read the book YEARS ago, just got a new copy and re-read it. Id' completely forgotten it.
      Anyways, it's an animated film by the same team of folks who brought us Spirited Away, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, & all those great movies. So.
  • I cannot freakin' wait for that movie. Jones has been my favorite author since I was about 12. I adore Miyazaki's movies. It's like a dream team movie for me.

    Too bad Disney will probably sit on it for five years.
    • They probably won't, actually: Spirited Away did PHENOMENALLY well for them, and prompted the release of Miyazaki's back catalogue.
      I bet Howl's Moving Castle will be out in the US before 2005 ends.
      • Totoro, Nausicaa, and Porco Rosso were supposed to be out TODAY, dammit, but got pushed back.
    • For years, I have been corrupting young minds by getting them to read DWJ. I've also been subverting Librarians to carry her. Mwahaha!
  • First time since Laputa? What about Princess Mononoke? Aside from about three or four songs, I'd say the entirety of that music was pretty western.
    • You may wanna re-listen to the main themes of Mononoke and how they're built around traditional Japanese instruments, honestly.
      There are some definite European influences- just as there are in Spirited Away, as well.
