    General CommentI just saw this movie...I mean, WOW. Apart from one tiny little thing I realised (OK, I realised earlier, but might as well mention): does ANYONE else feel that Cait Sith is to Final Fantasy what Jar Jar Binks was to Star Wars?

    General CommentAh yup. Does anyone actually LIKE Cait Sith? He was completley USELESS in the movie.

    General Commentthat he was but so was Red XIII in the movie but I love him in the game. Yes Cait Sith is pretty commonly despised by a lot of FFVII players but you can't pass judgment on his importance in the film. Most of the party from the game exist in the movie just to make that big cameo appearance in the fight with Bahamut (exceptions being only Tifa and Vincent really)

    General Commentthis song is just amazing. no other words describe it. it perfectly fuses my two favourite styles of music. the classical instruments and the guitar blend perfectly and the latin vocals are amazing. and no matter what you think of the characters in advent children, pouncing to deliver a killing blow and suddenly realising you are about 30cm away from sephiroth, no one deserves that ;)

    black mages rule.

    General Commenti was hoping for a translation, lol, obviously it would detract from the power of the latin chorus, but i was hoping to read a translation here...so the meaning of the song in itself is lost here...powerful though it may be...and film? this was in the game first...then the film....it was well updated...and yup, cait sith was a bit useless, but remember who was behind the toy? reeve...exec in shinra!!

    anyway commenting the song, in reality they are saying
