…The Gundam oo movie is……well…………

The bad thing about exam period is, well, it’s exam period. On the other hand, the good thing about exam period is that once your brain stops being fried, you can totally use the fact that you’re tired from exams to slack off instead of studying for the next finals.

…Wait, is that a good thing? 

Anyway, I watched the Gundam 00 movie, and I’d say that they did a pretty good job. At the beginning, a movie clip showing how popular media glorifies war was shown, and I was impressed at how they tried to set themselves apart from it.

That said, there are a hell of a lot of problems with this movie. Set aside random things like how for some reason they have warp technology out of nowhere, how they paired up the extra characters, how they killed off someone just to bring them back, just because they wanted the impact, and how apparently turning 40% of the population into innovators solved every problem even though they dedicated Gundam Seed to how NOTHING good could possibly happen when you create a biological rift between people like that.

Just set that aside.

My main problem is how incredibly cheesy this entire thing is. Oh my gawd, there were enough cheesy lines about hope and the future to fill a quote a day calendar. And of course, there’s that whole thing about seeing dead people who give out more inspirational quotes and hand you a glowing flower…sigh……. Was this series always like this? And also, aliens? ALIENS? Magical aliens that for some reason can imitate human technology in seconds and can take over machines? Aliens that can actually understand you if you just tried hard enough? Aliens that turn into a fcking flower? I’m pretty sure that those last two things was the plot from that one Sailor moon movie. All we’re missing are glowing ribbons. Wait, no, there ARE glowing ribbons of GN particles. 

Anyway, I like ranting, but it doesn’t mean that it’s a bad movie. In fact, I’d say that it wraps up the series pretty well, and there are definitely tons of pretty action scenes (especially the one in the desert). Patrick is definitely awesome in it, and it’s always fun to rant about Sunrise shows, right? Ooh, maybe I should start watching Kyōkai Senjō no Horaizon….

  2. I have lasted two episode of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon and I think there’s a lifetime worth of ranting in there. Have fun!

    That being said, I got over the aliens being able to imitate human technology since I’ve seen that before, and I really, really loved the movie, save for the flower at the end.
    I’m still trying to make sense of the ending.
    Well, at least it does seem like an ending.

    And Patrick was awesome. Very important point indeed.
