That would be amazing if he went. I'm president of the anime club at school, and I managed to get some of the members to go to Comic-Con, even though I told them the convention was predominately films and comics. We actually bought a Japanese version of Ponyo to show in the club. But anyways, blood vessels will burst if this is true. Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favorite films of all time.

Goddamn it. The next thing I'm going to hear is that all of the reels were taken by a giant horde pterodactyls and they're going to have to reshoot the entire film.

Aw, what?! That stinks. I love this movie. My family and I watched it all the time. This makes me stomach ache a little. :(

I think it'll be based off of books 1-6. The sixth one hasn't been released yet, but I suspect it will come out very close to or even a bit earlier than the film. They might even do a cool box set sort of thing and release it in tandem. It's funny because Bryan Lee O'Malley is pretty much implying on his blogs that he's going to hole up in order to finish the sixth book. He's a very funny man, his tweets are awesome.

This is so unbelievably gratifying. The amount of detail they're putting into the film is unreal and, so far, unparalleled. So, so, so excited. I could sing the praises of Edgar Wright for days.

Love, love, love, love it.
I thought the opening scene was especially wonderful (I actually wanted to cry a little). I really don't think I have any major criticisms. I don't think I blinked once - there was never a dull moment and it moved so quickly. I remember hearing Scotty comes in around the halfway point, and before I knew it, he was already on screen. Simon Pegg was one of my favorite aspects of the film. My friend and I were the only ones in the theatre who found it funny when he was pushing his little sidekick away from the beaming platform. That was hilarious to us for some reason. I don't know what I was most impressed by. Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto surpassed my expectations. I thought Pine might just be a nice face, but he definitely has some nice acting chops, as does Quinto.
I feel that this is going to be one of those films that people will go back to see over and over again. I loved it.

I've been having a really rough couple of months lately, and I've been feeling pretty down. But walking out of that theatre, I had the biggest smile on my face. I was enthralled from start to finish. Of course, I laughed at the overly cheesy bits ("I'm so cold..." and "NOOOOOOOOO!"), but at that point, I was just going with the flow. I really grasped the purpose movies serve, particularly summer films: forget your problems and have fun. It was a packed theatre, too - and we had a great audience. Everyone was cheering and applauding, but also laughing at the over the top ridiculousness of it all. I know it wasn't the greatest film ever made or even the greatest comic book film ever made, but I genuinely had a blast and it made me feel good.

Just give Gambit his own film, plz.

Anything Edgar Wright-related is okay by me. And I would love to see this happen, but it really doesn't sound like it'd work out since he has so many film coming up. PLUS writing the next film with Simon Pegg. He may be one of the most amazing people on the face of the planet, but even he needs a break now and then.

The very last sentence of the wedding scene/chapter sent chills up my spine. Absolute hell breaks loose after it. I cannot wait to see how they capture that.

(Kinda Spolier-y)
And I always pictured the split around the time Xenophilius Lovegood explains the Deathly Hallows. It kind of leaves you with the question of how Harry is going to find the Deatlhy Hallows and ultimately kill Voldemort. Although, I think I may like the idea that someone a few posts up had about ending it at Dobby's burial. That seems fitting.
