  • Honestly I'm surprised Marcus hasn't played "Death Stranding". Like I can't say that everyone will like it, but I feel like everyone should at least play it.

  • The biggest problem with the movie is just how low energy it is. Its not a fun movie to watch or even bad enough to enjoy, its just a movie that exists.

  • Why didn’t they just adapt one of the pre-existing games into this movie? Or combine the plots or ideas from 2-3 of the games? I’m new to the FF games but I feel that the movie could’ve been more successful had Square Pictures just followed that formula.

  • Square had 2 excellent concepts: a ghost story in space made with mind-blowing CGI, and a Final Fantasy movie. They smashed those together to make a movie Final Fantasy fans were disappointed and confused by, and non-fans assumed they wouldn’t get it. They took 2 _fantastic_ ideas and mixed them together like throwing steaks in a barrel of scotch.

  • Now do Advent Children next-

  • You both are shitting on a movie made over 19 years ago. You know, when you were both eating your own boogers and swallowing glue. Your biting mystery science theater but with less humor. Your best videos are the ones without your faces in it. To the dude with glasses, you were awesome in Neighborhood Watch. Don’t be ashamed to use your British accent. To your partner, you were awesome in My Cousin Vinny, you haven’t aged at all. Got a little fatter but fat fills cracks I guess.

  • I saw this in the theater when it came out, and the CGI seemed super impressive at the time. The story, however, was pretty bad even then. I had only ever played part of a single Final Fantasy game and even I knew this had nothing to do with any of that. On the other hand, I still remember the part when the ghost things got inside the city and like flew through the transports and shit. I remember being really fucking bothered by all that sudden innocent death business.

  • Fun fact: the same woman who voice acts the main character is the same woman who plays Chun-Li in the movie _Street Fighter_ . 10:18 *wakes up* , *get shot immediately* I like how you keep reusing the _Life is Strange_ clip. 10:54 Oof. Throughout the video, you two kept complaining about how long the movie is and then you say the movie’s pacing isn’t bad?

  • I've never played any FF game, but from what I know about it and I have seen this movie doesn't even remotely resemble FF apart from it's animated. It absolutely looks like a loose adaptation of Lost Planet, Dan hit the nail on the head with that comparison.

  • I watched this movie when I was like 10, I loved it a lot. I never played the FF games, and thought this movie was one of my favorites. I was sad to hear, when I got older, that its pretty much clowned on. 20 years ago, I thought it was a beautiful film, yea its super cliched and simple, but my 10 year old ass didn't care.

  • This movie did end up paying dividends in the long run because it got Square to invest in their own animation studio and rendering tech which is one reason why even their modern games done Unreal Engine or whatever still look so distinctive.

  • I was 17 when this film was released and deemed cutting edge back in 2001. As a fan of Final Fantasy 7, I was expecting something a lot less sci-fi related. However I enjoyed the story and the philosophical elements. Years later I had my thirst quenched when I watched Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children 🙏🏾

  • This movie was the very first attempt of making a full "photo realistic" cgi movie, the first tima a movie was acted entirely in a mocap studio and on its defense, the hands and faces had to be animated by hand.

  • I saw this in a theater with some special effects artists. I enjoyed it. The credits start to roll. I am expecting these guys to watch the effects credits and comment. "Hey, I know that guy" or "that's a good effects company." No, they just walked out wen the credits started.

  • FF8 had very basic-looking humans and a limited number of minutes of FMV, so it had to use all that time very well. The game's story takes several hours to get through, but the bits that take place in FMV are really exciting. FF:TSW uses far more advanced graphics to, ironically, show us far less of interest and not really have much happen in the under two hours they had. I don't understand how they fucked that aspect up so much. The graphics were better than what was in FF8, but to me they weren't enough of an improvement to justify there being bugger all happening with them. I'll take FF8's opening, the Deling City parade, the Garden clash, and the entire ending of the game over any of this. Fuck this movie, fuck this movie, fuck this movie.

  • I love that modern video games legitimately look better than this does, meaning the idea behind it was already flawed when it would become outdated admittedly 20 years later, but outdated nonetheless.

  • This movie fails on a billion counts, but one that it doesn't fail at is the idea that the villains of the film (even though they're not blahblablah) aren't just things that kill people, they're things that literally take your soul, your corporeal form, and gobble it up. That raises the stakes of a film to extremely high levels because it basically answers the question of anyones lifetime of "Do we have a soul?" and says "Yes, and that same soul can be destroyed". Even though this movie cops out of that almost-Lovecraftian existential threat in the end, the basis of this type of threat is a pretty great idea for stakes in a film and I've only seen it in one film, ironically enough Cabin in the Woods when some SWAT dude gets his soul taken by a demonic wraith in the ending bloodbath, basically meaning he ceased to exist lol

  • I enjoyed this movie when it came out in cinema. Sadly it was ahead of it's time and people weren't on board with full CGI movies. It's not really final fantasy though outside of a few obscure references (Cid, a chocobo drawing etc). Also, really harsh on graphics of something that is 20 year old CGI. Commentary is just annoying in this tbh. "Look at that guys eyebrows" over and over. One of those people that talks over the movie and then has no idea what's going on.
