“…Didn’t need a sequel.” That right there is the problem. Some stories lend themselves very well to sequels. Star Wars is probably the best example I can think of. Maybe Batman Begins with The Dark Knight. But FF7 is a fairly self-contained story that, in itself, is epic in nature and length. It’s a LOT of story. So why would a sequel be necessary? Maybe if we are curious about what happens to the characters after the original story ended. But, wait. We only see a very few of them until near the end. What about a villain continuing to… Read more »

Actually, I think they should have gotten Crispin Freeman to do Vincent Valentine. Vincent is kind of like a bampire. And he does have a red cloak. And guns.

Crispin Freeman actually voices Rude in this.

Simple Solution: Crispin Freeman voices everyone. Bam! Movie’s 500% better.

Correction: Crispin Freeman and Steve Blum do all the voices. Then the movie’s 600% better.

Blum is pretty awesome too. He did like 8 different characters in Arkham.

It may not have needed a sequel, but the ending did leave a lot of people confused. Particularly because it wasn’t clear whether humanity had been wiped out or not.

Ironically your analysis actually gave me new appreciation towards this movie instead of making me like it less. I already did like it but way you put it made me realise that maybe there is more to AC than I had realised.

i don’t really think cloud was emo in the game. he was more hopeful and silly in the game. the only problem with the movie is that the plot is kinda over complicated. they should have been better at making it a stand alone movie as well as a sequel.

Cloud ended up memetically chipper in Japan. I’m pretty sure emo Cloud is overcompensation for it along with Gackt worship going overboard.

My biggest problem with advent child, is how much it pointed out my lack of understanding of the game plot

Dude, this was pretty friggin’ awesome. Love when humor and analysis meet. Also liked your take on Kingdom Hearts, which mostly has the same problems as this. Can’t wait to see more.

I, to this day, believe that the motorbike chase in the Lego Movie was a direct reference to Advent Children. Atleast the one scene where Emmett is taking the bike from left to right over the highway in a very “illogical way” and wild stay jumps off an exploding bike.
Really close to the bike scene from AC.

Please never stop making videos. I can’t get enough of the stuff you make, and this video is a perfect example of why. I first watch AC when I was in high school and loved it. When I was in college, I found it in a bargain bin at Walmart, so obviously I picked it up and couldn’t wait to watch it. I don’t remember if I even made it through it a second time (I think not) and I haven’t bothered watching it again since. I could never explain my radical change in opinion, but your video really helped… Read more »
