I didn't like 'Howl's Moving Castle' as much as 'Spirited Away'. There were some plot issues. But it was even more beautiful than SA, I wanted to jump into the picture. It makes me wonder about the quality of pictures in motion that can make them more beautiful. I think of this in conjunction with the depiction of Treebeard in 'Lord of the Rings'. I've seen plenty of paintings of Ents, but they all looked wrong to me; yet Treebeard moving on screen was wonderful, marvellous. The assault of the Ents on Isengard is a scene that's only described in flashback in the book, but is one of my favorite sequences. I found it elementally satisfying. Is there something about animation that literally brings life to art?
