*sniff, sniff* Wow. It’s kind of musty in here.

I am not a movie person. I’m probably way more psyched for the upcoming release of Sleater-Kinney’s The Woods than I am about seeing the new Star Wars movie. (Because I’ve already listened to the new Sleater-Kinney, and man does it crush!)

But if I have to pinpoint one movie I would brave a theater to see this summer, it would be Howl’s Moving Castle. I’m not a Miyazaki Hayao nut by any mean, but I’ve watched Spirited Away, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Princess Mononoke — none of them disappointed.

I’m also looking forward to the DVD release of Steamboy. It played for all of two weeks at the Dobie, smashed right between SXSW and AAS’ wedding. I couldn’t find the time to go. So I’ve already pre-ordered the DVD from Waterloo.

As for the other big movie event of the summer, I’m waiting another few weekends to go see it in the theater.
