Default Just watched Advent Children

Unbelievably fantastic movie. FAR exceeded my expectations. I really wish some hollywood movies were this good. What about you guys, what are your thoughts? Discuss.

Note: I didn't see a topic about this movie in terms of content. If I missed it my bad.

They couldn't have made a better movie based on FF7, everything that should have been there was in there, and overall stayed very true to the game that spawned it. Some people complains about how predictable some of the events were (I won't spoil any of it) , but honestly, there have been previews and trailers and screenshots etc, for well over a year.

The CG was awesomely done, not too photorealistic (a good thing) and the music was great, a lot of great tracks made it in, remixed and everything. The Jenova track during one of the final scenes was awesome.

I'm glad there was no final, end all, clear-cut outcome for the famous love triangle, it would have ruined the movie for me (no matter how I would have liked to see it resolved).

I can't wait to get it on DVD, though I'll still watch it in the Japanese language if it's available, the voices were great in my opinion.

Couldn't agree more, amazing movie. I was actually expecting to be baffled but even so it took me by surprise.

My only complaints are that Barret needed to suck less (funny, seeing as he is the strongest character in terms of timelimit\power, Angermax counters ftw), and more action from (yes, that is my wallpaper, and it is what defines the word 'awesome' in the dictionary).

Like Chicken, I am definitely buying this on DVD, which I very rarely do.

Except for wet hair. It seems they couldn't render wet hair at all, so they didn't even try.

Heh, have youe seen all the extras from the DVD The Incredibles?
It seems that hair (especially long hair) and clothes are the toughest parts of CG to get working and looking good. After watching it's extras and listening to all the commentaries, I felt sorry for them.

I noticed the non-wet hair also, especially when Denzel enter's the church puddle at the end (They did an uber awesome job on Denzel though, the new character really has personality in the movie, and his hair looks fantastic (that sounds weird, but only outside of CG movie context >_>)).

Did anyone else want to see more of a certain blond Turk? Was it just me?<img src=smilies/cry.gif>

Still, I'm thankfull for what was there, and wanting more would be nitpicky with my bias for certain characters.

What the hell are you talking about Reno was awsome, yo. *grins*

Seriously, I can't believe how good this movie is. I watched it with my brother who's also a huge Final Fantasy fan--throughout the entire movie we kept saying "holy shit that's cool" "omg that is the shit". There was only 1 thing missing in the movie in our opinions...Cloud's Omnislash! That would of owned hardcore.

I haven't seen this movie but I was thinking the other day it would be great if they made a Diablo 2 or WoW movie like the previews they make. Man those previews are so well done, they would make more on the movies than the games probably because I would buy a movie like that. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

OMG and how. My favorite character model in the whole movie. He was just that awesome looking.

One thing it could have used, this movie, is more Cid. Cid ruled in the game, and i think his part in the movie was waaaaaay too small.

I loved the scene where he was running and his weapon his the other Turk in the face and knocked him down. That shit was funny.

They did have it. What did you think that limit break at the end was supposed to be?
