Just saw the movie in raw.

The opening prologue and the last 30 min of the movie was pretty epic stuff. Although there's I've been wondering in that prologue...

I was really surprised with the amount of new scenes in this, and i'm not talking about the last 30 minutes. Nearly all of the reviews from people who watched this in the cinema did say that it was basically the TV series with a different ending to those events, but boy were they wrong.

I dunno, that sounds like exactly what I watched today. The movie is pretty much the TV series with an alternate opening and ending sequence. Content-wise it's definitely a compilation movie as opposed to something "completely different" or whatever. The script and events are exactly what happens in the TV series, but with much faster pace. There are short new scenes inserted here and there to make the transitions smoother, but that's about it. I enjoyed the movie, and felt it covered the first half of the series pretty well without boring me, but aside from the alternate opening and ending events, it's really nothing "new" in terms of content.

No i'm not saying that. These reviews i'm on about were saying that there were no new material apart from the beginning introduction and the last 30 minutes or so, where both you and i know that there's quite a lot of new scenes here and there within the film itself.

Are there any substantial scenes you can think of in the middle? Aside from the bunch of still frames and short 5 second scenes in the 4min montage that summarizes ep4-6, I can't really think of any new scenes in the middle that stood out to me at all. Just lots of clever editing with TV footage.

Well apart from the music like video scene which covered events from episodes 4, 5, and 6 --- we had a few new scenes which built up to the climax with Kamina, and after.

If i rewatch the movie again at the weekend (which i plan to do), i'll make a post mentioning them, though they are there.

I don't really remember any new scenes aside from the montage scene we both mentioned, so if you can actually track the new scenes added that'll be helpful. I honestly haven't seen GL since it originally aired, so if the scenes look really similar to the TV ones I wouldn't be able to tell them apart honestly. So I don't really blame anyone else for saying that the only real new stuff are at the start and at the end because that's really what it seemed like to me.

I'm not blaming anyone either, i was just letting people know. But yeah, will let you know about the new scenes when i rewatch it.

The DVD is anamorphic (16:9), so 853x480.

That's not really accurate. The resolution is 720x480 for all DVDs and that doesn't chance regardless of aspect ratio. It simply means that the 720x480 frame is stretched out to 16:9.

Well, no matter how much of the same the movie was in comparison to the TV series, that 3 second itano circus was awesome.

Yeah, it looks like the movies are only a 2 parter.

As for movie 1, it really is pretty much the TV series. That said, I do much prefer the pacing of the movie, as I always thought that the Kamina arc was just way too drawn out in the TV series. I really didn't feel much for him because of this, but in the movie my eyes misted more than a couple of times because the impact was really there.

And yeah, them not cutting off Nia's hair gets plus points in my book lol.
