I maintain to this day that Nomura should have hired an actual director to co-direct with him. Someone who deeply understands tone, pacing, transition etc. Not Nozue, who's only worked on Kingdom Hearts FMVs. Sheesh, there's a world of difference.
You do realize that everything Rufus said in that convo with Cloud was a lie, right? Of COURSE Rufus would say something like that if it helps him achieve his goals. He doesn't really mean any of it. That's what makes him such a bastard.
You really only need the most basic of story comprehension skills to be able to understand this.
In that case I'll say that I liked ACC because I finally got to see the FFVII world in something other then lego graphics as well as well as how all the fights would go when you don't have to stick to the ATB. As far as the plot went, it was a lot better then I thought it would be given all the criticism it got.
Of course, that fact that I didn't have to pay for it might have something to do with it...
Interesting. Isn't the fact that you're pausing and writing ruining any attempt a suspension of dibelief? It's obvious you're not even trying to view it as a FILM. You're just watching a number of __ length clips, and picking them apart. That in and of itself essentially negates your opinion of ACC as a film, because you're not watching it like a FILM.
How about you watch the WHOLE FILM, and then go through and break it down for analysis like a REAL reviewer?
You know I seem to recall that lots of things happened in FFVII that no human can do in real life. Like Cloud falling off the sector five plate and living. Or Sephiroth flying around. Or people using marbles to cast magic. Or actuallybeing able to wield the Buster Sword, and then take on and defeat people with guns.
