Wasn't a FF fan but I was a huge CGI movie fan at the time, and loved this movie to bits just for the CGI It can only look even better with 4K resolution and HDR, so I'll be adding this to my wishlist!
I saw this with a prospective bf at the cinema and then it was the second DVD I ever bought (the first was Dungeons and Dragons - I had such great taste) so I have very fond memories of this one.
I am very much looking forward to bumping up to this 4K.
I really love the film, I knew nothing about the games (and still don't) but fell in love with the realistic CGI visuals and even some of the characters when I saw it at the cinema in London on, if memory serves properly.... a digital projector!
It wasn't that long ago I watched another final fantasy film which didn't do it for me and I put this in again to see if the visuals were as good as I'd remembered. They still stood up damn well I thought, but I bought the DVD and Bluray but maybe I'm getting old when I pause on getting the 4k because I doubt there will be much more I notice on the projector?
I'll keep an eye on it in offers though ;-)
//edit me of little faith. caps-a-holic.com screen grabs of bluray vs 4k is very promising!
Wow now this is a blast from the past. TBH id completely forgot about this film. I used to be a huge FF fan and was super hyped for this when it came out back in 2001. Seem to remember having mixed feelings after coming out of the cinema after watching it. Im not even sure ive watched it again since then?
