Talk about late! Ooooops :X  
Saw the FF Advent children movie today.

I'm so glad I didn't go through any ammount of time or effort to track it down when it first came out D:
It was pretty, but I think I'm going to be cleaning the director's fanboy wank out of my DVD player for weeks.

Stupidest plot evarrr. And It seems like Tetsua Nomura is the new Final Fantasy Director of EVERYTHING.. (By new, I mean coronated a few years back..) and I don't like his work that much. I don't like his mullet-laden character designs, I don't like his art style that much... (But his coloring is pretty nice).. Don't like his direction. I couldn't figure out WTF was going on for half the movie, and it was FILLED with really pointless scenes. Like "Let's have a long action packed motocycle chase, and then have the dudes chasing cloud take off with nothing coming of that scene." For somthing so labour intensive as a CG movie with that much detail.. you have to be damn sure what you want in, and what you want out before you finish.. so this isn't somthing you can blame on the.. editors, for example D:

My summation of Final Fantasy: Advent children in 2 or less jumbled, fragmented sentances:

Cloud's arm leaks hallucinogenic drugs, causing him to rampage across a fanfic fighting ninja orphans while they try to give every single FF7 character a different accent to make them more interesting the end kthxbai.. oh yeah, and this guy turns into sephiroth and cloud uses knights of the round and they kill bahamut and it takes forever

But..

It was really pretty!

Wow. I expect nothing less than a totally incoherent plot. It's FF7 after all which had a totally incoherent plot to begin with. I expect it to be very pretty. So I have high expectations and will cry if I am disappointed! Only person around here I know who bought it was my FOM and when I suggested that he let me come over to watch it I think he thought I was hitting on him or something.

D: Guh.
Well, if you need to get away for a bit, come on down. We bought it because we knew it would be pretty. We spent the rest ot the time laughing at it's awefulness :P
