New Blog Theme + Gundam 00 Movie Thoughts
Posted by Tom on January 4, 2011
So I thought I’d make some changes around here. The old theme was really for me to get used to blogging, but I didn’t like how it would realign the images. I think this theme will suit my needs for a while.
Today was not so cool; it’s my birthday, but we go back to school today DX
I didn’t get much besides money and a HG Hi-Nu GPB Colors.
Oh and I finished watching the Gundam 00 movie. Thoughts after the jump.
So before I give you my thoughts I thought I should tell you that I’ve watch this movie several times already. Two or three times raw, one time subbed by Hadena, and two times subbed by BSS. It’s quite amazing how your enjoyment level can depend on the sub. Anyways, I’m pretty sure everyone can now search up the plot of the movie, so I’ll give my final thoughts.
In my opinion, it’s pretty good. It’s not the best, but it’s not the worst. I think that the overall theme that the movie is trying to give is understand. The way the storytelling isn’t really the best way to carry out the theme, but overall, it’s there and if you look hard you can appreciated what this movie is trying to say, instead of another mecha movie that blows shit up… which this movie also has.
It does has it’s questionable moments, like is aliens really necessary in a gundam series. I think it works in this case, but I’m not so sure if any newer series can use it. Speaking on aliens, I felt that the back story of the ELS could have been explained alot better. But I’m pretty sure that can be explain in a manga side story in Gundam Ace or something.
The animations and quality is pretty good. You have a lot of pew pew action here and there, mostly by Zabanya. The animations for the Braves are pretty nice, they change from MS to MA to MS. It so good. No complaints from this department. Although, I’m not so sure if it’s the media player I’m using, but this subbed version has some faint background music and sound effect. =/
Honestly, the only thing I was disappointed with, besides the way the story was told, was the ending. Many fans will be disappointed and confused at the ending. However, I can see what they were going for, you know, with the theme being about understanding one other. Another was that 00 Quanta had little screen time despite the fact it’s the supposed lead Gundam of this movie.
And after a wall of text, here’s some pics on some moments of the movie. This is the BSS sub version I might add.
