I've heard it's eye candy, but the story is horrendously shit. I really struggle to watch movies like that - like that old Final Fantasy Spirits Within - ahmaazing animation, but every sci-fi cliche and stereotype you could possible gather in a single movie.

cannot emphasise enough that this is a "cgi movie" :wink:
True - but just because it's rendered doesnt mean it has to be shit. I mean come on - if you're going to all that effort to make it look so amazing, why not invest some time in the goddamned plot/characters etc too. Frustrates the fuck out of me - I'm looking at you Ultramarines! (although they didnt go to fuckall effort with that ones animation)

When a film has distinctive goals and manages to achieve those goals then it should be considered a good film in at least that respect. Advent Children was obviously devised by a bunch of people sitting around brainstorming in the manner of "Hey you know what would be more awesome than Sephiroth? 3 Sephiroths!" (board room attendees gasp in astonishment and the caterer faints) and dat Buhamet fight. I cri evrytiem. Oh oh and the Tifa fight! And the Mako forrest fight were Cloud gets wrecked then Vincent shows up with his boss ass cape. Yeah, masturbation is awesome.

That said Captain Harlock was kind of a mess, the space battles were fantastic, the pirate raid/boarding scenes were tops, but goddamn it was less coherent than Advent Children, or was it? Shit I don't know, having the story be a mess as the point of the story is a silly state of affairs.
