Saw Code Geass: Lelouch of the Alive Again Because Money, Babyyyyy last night. It was swell.
At first I wasn't gonna see it in the first place, but I had a $5 fandango credit from watching shit through AMC A-List, with another one coming after next week, and you can't stack them onto one order because fuck you, and it was gonna expire before I'd have a use for it for anything else, so I went. It helped that I went with low expectations because I watched both season 1 and 2 through fansubs back when it was coming out and man, R2 was crap. Whereas season 1 felt like there was a plan the writers of the show were going for, R2 felt like they had no idea what the hell they were doing other than "GOTTA THROW A TWIST IN THERE!" Don't get me wrong, all of Code Geass is dumb as hell, but season 1 was fun dumb.
The movie felt like dumb season 1 fun, which I appreciated. Probably helped they had a decade and change to come up with something. The fights scenes were awesome, with one being so fucking dumb with the Geass stuff that I couldn't help but let out a burst of air through my nose.
I don’t need another one.
