So I will be the first to say that I’m a HUGE FF Fanboy. I love the Final Fantasy Franchise and have been playing them intensely since FF IV. So given I’m literally a walking encyclopedia of knowledge concerning the all things FF you can image my surprise to find out that IMDB, the internet movie rating standard, gave Kingsglaive a 4/5 stars!!! ??? Why is that surprising I hear you ask???
… well the simple answer if because the rest of the FF movies were CRAP lol
- Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals (1994)
- Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001)
- Final Fantasy: Unlimited (2001)
- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005)
Now that’s not to say that they weren’t interesting, visually stunning or funny… they just weren’t good ‘movies’ by today’s standards. Hey i still enjoyed them, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t crap. I also love drinking the preservative juice in the olive jar by the glass, and that stuff’s horrendous!!! (sorry for the tangent). Anyway, typically these movie’s have been confusing, horribly paced, poorly voice acted and featured a story telling. So with all that said IMDB gave Kingsglaive a 4/5 stars. You can read the IMDB review here if your interested.
I honestly want Kingsglaive to succeed and I will watch it regardless, I just won’t be expecting a Hollywood blockbuster. Rather I will be viewing the movie as an introduction to the FFXV lore, like watching an interactive wiki on the game. Which in all honestly is how SquareEnix intended it to be viewed.
So are you excited for the movie/game? Let us know in the comments section below or in our facebook group. All always keep being awesome, and keep playing video games.
