The astonishingly awesome film Howl's Moving Castle delivered for under a fiver. I shouldn't need to say any more, but just in case, this is what amazon has to say about this film:
"Like a dream, Howl's Moving Castle carries audiences to vistas beyond their imaginations where they experience excitement, adventure, terror, humor, and romance. With domestic box office receipts of over $210 million, Howl passed Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke to become the #3 film in Japanese history, behind his Spirited Away and James Cameron's Titanic.

Based on a juvenile novel by Diana Wynne Jones, Howl's Moving Castle marks the first time Miyazaki has adapted another writer's work since Kiki's Delivery Service (1989). Sophie, a 19-year-old girl who believes she is plain, has resigned herself to a drab life in her family's hat shop--until the Witch of the Waste transforms her into a 90-year-old woman. In her aged guise, Sophie searches for a way to break the Witch's spell and finds unexpected adventures. Like Chihiro, the heroine of Spirited Away, Sophie discovers her hidden potential in a magical environment--the castle of the title.

Using CG, Miyazaki creates a ramshackle structure that looks like it might disintegrate at any moment. Sophie's honesty and determination win her some valuable new friends: Markl, Howl's young apprentice; a jaunty scarecrow; Calcifer, a temperamental fire demon; and Heen, a hilarious, wheezing dog. She wins the heart of the dashing, irresponsible wizard Howl, and brings an end an unnecessary and destructive war. The film overflows with eclipsing visuals that range from frightening aerial battles to serene landscapes, and few recent features--animated or live action--offer as much magic as Howl's Moving Castle.--Charles Solomon"

I thought that it was more pike or salmon, but each to their own

Amazing film Such fantastic animation. Check out Spirited Away as well - films with plenty of character and quality.

A little detail to explain why you didn't like the animation would be nice. Right now your comment is a bit fishy.

I paid between three and four quid for this a few years ago. Amazon I think. Didn't like it.

Is a fiver still considered an especially good deal for a nine-year-old movie on DVD?

Out of Stock already....

There are lots of Ghibli fans around who'd vote hot on any deal posted; however DVD prices do tend to go back up once the initial glut is finished.

£5 is a decent price for this; for instance it's not dropped below £6.29 at Amazon in more than three years and £7 is the next best price currently.

Incidentally I quite liked the movie, and it's one of my wife's favourites - it'd be a dull world if we all liked the same things...
