Howl's Moving Castle

I went to go see Howl's Moving Castle after the Q & A at the Tower for
This Divided State. I have to say the animation looked amazing. I'm
still not sure how I felt about the film on the whole though. I'm not
sure if I missed something or not.

Oh well...

I'll think about it some more and maybe see it again to see what I
think. At this point, I think I like it, but it's not Miyazaki's best.


Oh, the screenings went great today. Even more people came today than yesterday.

I attended your screening yesterday at the Tower Theatre in Salt Lake City and liked it very much. However, two things troubled me. First, when I saw your title on the screen that said "Utah is 75% LDS" my fourth grade teacher brain said, "That's not right". Sure enough, in this morning's Salt Lake Tribune they are saying the percentage of Mormons is around 65%. The other thing is something I may not be correct about, but again my teacher brain went into red pen mode when I saw the word "broadcasted" in one of your titles. I am pretty sure the word broadcast is present and past tense and there is no such a word as broadcasted. You might want to check on that.

However, despite that nitpicking, thanks again for a great film. My brother lives in Venice, California and he's hoping he can see it there, especially because he was in Utah when Michael Moore came and got to see him. (Unfortunately I had to teach school that day.)

The percentage of LDS citizens in Utah really depends on your source. I beleive we got that 75% from the LDS church website, I also think it's a little high, but that's the number we had.

As far as broadcasted, you're right. It's been nagging at me for a while now, we just haven't been able to do anything with it.

I talked to Steve, we got the 75% number from the census apparently
