...I must be freaking psychic. I implied that STTGL would utterly annihilate the universe, and as we all saw during the whole Giga Drill Break-clash, it did. Damn, I'm good.

STTGL was definitely bad ass.

Oh? I would of recommended the anime first. But nonetheless, you should watch the anime if you have seen the movies. And indeed, it was epic.

Yeah me too. If I ever had any complaints, it was that. The fact that Nia dies is the only thing that keeps TTGL from being perfect, IMO.

The second movie has been out for over a month now. And for the record, it is much better than the first one.

Hm, overall I still think the TV series is better but there a few points of the "movie"/remix/compilation/whatever I did like.

Gurren-hen changes
Spoiler:


Lagaan-hen changes
Spoiler:


After finishing the movie I feel this more of a great treat for fans instead of something that you could recommend one over the other mainly for the extra final battle footage.

Yep. Some parts of the movie were a lot better than the anime, but mostly the anime topped the movie.

First of all, Rossieu trying to shoot himself on the ship was just stupid. It was like there was no bond between the two as friends. Stupid. It was WAY more badass when Simon does a warp with Gurren laggan and does a super Chuck Norris flying punch (=GAR). However I also liked that most of the battle scenes were kickass. In fact, I enjoyed several parts of the movie. I liked how most of the crew survived (although it was more realistic for them to die, war has casualties) and showed up in the parallel "what-if" world, and fought in the epic ending battle. Coolest part, no doubt, Simon fist-fighting the Anti-Spiral. I had no idea that Simon could turn any more cooler than he already was, but this topped it. That and Super TTGL. It was too bad STTGL didn't really get to fight or anything. Overall, the movie was still good. Yes, way better than gurren-hen. The epilogue was a bonus, but still reminded me of how much I hated the fact that Simon pretty much retired. Maybe he's still badass inside? Look at solid snake, old and still hauling ass.

After watching Gurren-hen and Laggan-hen, it is safe to say that the series was a lot better. I actually didn't like the oversized gurren lagann at the end and only kittan died on their attack in the anti spiral homeworld. Moreover, the individual mechas they had in the end was kinda disturbing, especially when Nia started fighting the anti-spiral. However, the additional scenes were commendable, the rest were just salvaged from the series. Kinda reminded me why I deleted my first download of Gurren-hen. Anyway, those are just my opinion though.

Well, it was a nice bonus IMO. I thought the end was cooler. Simon fist-fighting with Anti-Spiral = Win.

Wow....that was pretty much one of the most awesome things I've seen in a long long long time in anime. Downloading this right now and making me wish that they'd do another GaoGaiGar or show like Gurren-Lagann. Anime seriously needs a sucessor to carry the torch of gar.

Mostly. The last 30 minutes of the first movie is mostly new stuff, and the second movie changes some things too, but the story itself is still the same, and a lot of scenes are just recycled animation from the TV-series.

Gurren-hen was 90% recap. Lagann-hen had some new scenes, I liked the ending a lot.

Finally had time to watch the movie, and by crimson heaven piercing Damn, it was frigging awesome!

Although, there were weakness, more then the TV series, which should be expected from the recap scenes, but I LOVE the extra's.

After watching this movie, there is this tiny little hope that in 10, maybe 20 years time, Gainax might do another remake, or perhaps an add on to the Gurren Lagann series. It wouldn't be 'impossible'
