Harbinger O Great Justice
Except the rest of it, all of which was poor, is STILL IN THERE. That does not make the movie that much better. But regardless, I will be watching the ACC tonight, and from what I have read, they even extended fight scenes. That isn't a good thing.
The Lord of the Rings was FULL of fighting. If you watch the LotR Extended Edition, a LOT if not all of the fights are MUCH longer. If you then go watch the fight scenes in the theatrical release, you'll realize that those ones are choppy and terrible in comparison. Just because you seem to be against the flashy anime-like fighting style, doesn't mean that it's a bad thing for them to have extended the fight scenes.
Again, even if you didn't like AC, go into ACC without the need to subjectively pick apart everything as you see it added in. Watch it as if it were an entirely different film, and base your conclusion on the WHOLE thing, without making comparisons to it and how AC handled the story.
Can't you make ONE post to reply to everyone without re-editing everything?
NO. NO. NO. That is a weak argument. All films have to stand by their material and work. You don't need to watch Terminator 1 to understand most of Terminator 2. FF7 AC is fanboy nonsense.
Another reason you should watch Plinkett reviews, he explains why telling people to read novels about the film is ridiculous.
Also- that youtube link was basically 8 mins of annoying bollocks just to hear, "Bending the physics of real life causing the audience to disconnect with a character and breaks tension." Again, this only applies if the characters are interacting in a normal environment to begin with. The reason that YOU disconnect more from it is that you're expecting a more real-life physics environment, rather than something like a CG anime "realism" that AC(C) (and FFVII) has, although I'm certain you'll attempt to debate that point until you're blue in the face. While I understand that SOME people have issues with a ton of things on screen, I've never had a problem keeping track of focus to retain tension in scenes like the ones mentioned in that review.
