    I'm glad I played a short demo of FFVII a few years ago. Otherwise, the reference would've gone right over my head. What a great inside joke!

    I loved the part where the team is helping Cloud get to (Bahamut?). Just awesome.

    Reno and Rude were great, too.

    Marlene: "You don't have a phone?!?" LOL :D

    I'm getting the idea that water is related to Aerith(?).... Aeris(?), in some significant way. :confused:

    Too bad I don't know Japanese. Well, I know one word....

    I just saw the movie today, although I liked all the action scenes, the storyline could have been explain better and the direction was a little weird. But don't take me wrong, it is a great movie, I am a heavy FFVII fan and really enjoyed it.

    I thought about getting this movie but didn't because I read up on the storyline and I thought, in my opinion, that it need a lot more work to it. Yet if you all say it is good then that's cool. I may buy it used to see what it is like. :)

    Get the game...then you understand the movie better...its basically for FF7 fans.

    Wtf was up with Bahamut's face? It was squished inwards...that was the only thing wrong about him.

    Urambo: Ka-san = Mother....but I might be wrong...plus I think it's spelt Kaa-san

    I admit bahamut was odd looking, but so far every FF game has a different looking bahamut.

    When I saw him come from the sky...I had friggin goosebumps....yeah i know..nerdy..but i dont care lol.

    I grew up playing FF, to me nothing is better...I even love their mess ups..while most people hated FF Spirit Within I loved it...why?...Because its FF. lol

    I just wish Square and the FF team would stop teasing America...by delaying FF games/movies etc.

    FF is like food for thought for me....yea....the film was awesome. I got my goosebumps at the scene where cloud takes out like 8 swords and just puts them together to make some huge mofo of a sword!

    What was your favourite fight scene met?

    Mines probably the whole of the Sephiroth Vs Cloud one

    The sephy/Cloud one ofc. The music for that fight scene was amazing aswell.

    Lol...they kinda pimped up Cloud's Omnislash on Bahamut though. It was never that funky looking :O

    "Kaa-san"? Sounds good to me!
    I wasn't sure about the spelling, but one of the many spellings I found said 'ka-san, which is apparently a lenited form of oka-san. Kind of similar to the difference between mother and mutha. ;) When I started searching, mother translated into haha, which didn't sound right at all. I dunno.

    I came across this great pic of Cloud's AC sword by way of Swordforum:

    The way they say kaa is different to the ka. So it's really Kaa-san, and also Okaa-san and what not...well according to the manga's and anime I read and watch it is XD

    I picked this up in English the other day, and only watched it last night. And, I just have to say:

    :eek:

    What a movie. The fight scenes were amazing, the graphics were awesome, and the storyline was incredible. The only grumble I have is the English dubbing, but at least I was able to understand it. I've got the subtitled version as well, but I prefered the English version.

    The Cloud vs Sephiroth fight... omg, I nearly messed my pants. :p I love that fight.

    I preferred the subbing...subbing is always sexier :p

    Yea...that fight was awesome. Nobuo Uematsu is a god...the music is so amazing...the soundtrack is totally amazing.

    I still didn't like Tifa's new dress style...the white tank top one is better

    Probably, they wanted to make the audience focus on her character more me thinks.
