<laugh> I couldn't make heads or tails out of the storyline, but then, I haven't played any of the Final Fantasy games either, merely *sat through* all of them as my friends played obsessively. (The first semester I was going out with my boyfriend I was treated to 1-5? in rapid succession...*he* would play games while *I* did my homework at his dorm. Hmph.)

I think I spent the majority of the movie scrutinizing her hair (which moved like a single organism) and her *elbows.* <laugh> I like General wossname in the black leather and gloves and all. He was a *fun* good animation of a bad actor. Yoon Ha Lee [] Know thyself. If you need help, call the CIA.
