Just started to watch the movies I haven't already meaning anything but the first three. I want to watch those again though to see if they're really that good.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I absolutely loved Latios and Latias. I can't wait till we get their mega evolutions, and I get my copy of White 2 so I can finally fight with Latias. Hopefully, it means they will be available in X&Y soon albeit for a limited time.
Anyway, I loved how Latios died. Yeah, I'm a big fan of death in storytelling. When characters go through dangerous ordeals, it's only natural that some don't make it. It's very hard for me to get invested in something when I already know no one is going to be hurt. Gotta say Pokemon tricked me in this case.
Even worse when characters make awesome sacrifices / have great send-offs, and then they turn up alive. Stay dead, damn it.
I mean, sure, I should probably dislike it because I like Latios so much, but I don't really do. It worked well in this case.
I think this one might be the last of the Pokemon movies that I would classify as art. I mean, the animation, backgrounds. The setting. Everything just looks amazing. The soundtrack too as some have mentioned. I've seen a bit of M6, and it certainly looks like the visual quality decreases significantly. I thought it might be because of the director, but it's the same throughout all of the movies. It might be Katsuyoshi KANEMURA, he's the Art Director for the first five movies.
I think I may give it a 4/5 because I thought it was great. Not 5/5 since that would mean Pokemon becoming something that isn't Pokemon.
