Although Earthsea had some outstanding box office kudos, the film had such mixed reviews I'm surprised that it's receiving screen time here in the states. I personally didn't think the film was that terrible (the backgrounds were beautiful and the animation was really smooth), but I guess we'll have to see how it does in August.
Let's not judge it too much based on the fact that he's Miyazaki's son. I think we should all perceive this film clear of any previous bias to his father's work :)
