A-Z Challenge: H

Howl's Moving Castle

I have lost track of how many times I have seen this. It really has become countless. I just adore it.
A young hat shop girl is cursed and finds herself turned to an old woman. Taking her cue from the scarecrow, she find's the wizard's strange moving castle and becomes the cleaning woman.
In the english version you will recognize the voices of Christian Bale, Billy Crystal and Lauren Bacall.

Old Sophie: When you're old, all you want to do is stare at the scenery. It's so strange. I've never felt so peaceful before.

Hot Fuzz

Ahhhh...Simon Pegg :) Such happy. The guys from Shaun of the Dead team up for this fun cop movie. So many good bits in it.
Pegg plays an officer who is so good, he's making the others look bad. To save face they have him sent to a small sleepy town where he finds it not so sleepy after all.
Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Timothy Dalton

Nicholas Angel: Sergeant Butterman, the little hand says it's time to rock and roll!

The Hidden

Long before he became the famous Special Agent Dale Cooper, Kyle MacLachlan was hunting aliens with Michael Nouri in the Hidden. Oh yeah. It's simple. Alien switches bodies, leaves string of dead behind, police go in search of killer, alien hunter steps in to help :) Simple.

You'll never look at the dog the same way again though.

Lloyd Gallagher: Because he likes it. He sees something he wants, he steals it. If something gets in his way, he kills it. And right now, he's hiding out in your city.


  1. Oh I really like the sounds of How's Moving Castle and love that quote from old Sophie.
