And having watched it, I now feel qualified to say, “Wow.”
Yes folks, I enjoyed myself, immensely.
But the strangest part was while watching it (especially the ending) I was surprised by the very strong wish that I had written the story.
No, not this same story; there were lots of things I’d like to seen done differently. I would have preferred to have spent the majority of the time on Laputa.
The children wouldn’t have been, well, children.
It would have been decidedly darker with many, many fewer secondary characters.
And the ending wouldn’t have been nearly so happy or final. I’d have ended it at them saying the Word.
This makes it sound like I didn’t like the way it was written and that’s simply untrue. I enjoyed it.
There’s just this arrogant little voice in the back of my head that whispers, “Oh, had you gotten there first.”
Arrogance. Simply arrogance.
... Liked the fart humor though.
