Is the R movie better than the season itself? I'm asking since I didn't think much of R until the last 10 or so episodes.
It depends on who you ask, I personally liked it better than the other two films and yeah, it's better than most of the season.

The R movie kind of takes existing scenes and stories and puts them into a blender to make its own story. Not to say it's bad, but the execution of how they reuse those elements is what makes the movie the best of the three films (in terms of writing, character). Not to mention the action sequences are some of the best in the entire series.

In all honesty, the "big" scene in the R movie that everyone loves - it's kind of been done before (Princess Serenity vs. Super Beryl). The way they do it, though, is what is so memorable and powerful. It's like what the staff wanted to do for the TV show in that aforementioned scene but was restricted by their budget perhaps? Even the finale of R kind of regurgitates the same moment with similar direction so. Yet it looks more mediocre than episode 46 somehow.

I've actually got Bootlegged versions of the movies all of them are subbed or the original dub of them all XD but I intend to lose them once the Viz versions come out.

I just realized I made it past 1000 posts yay me :love: :love:

Pronouncing "Fiore" like "fee-OH-layyy" ...that was a choice... LOL I've never heard it like that before. Ben's Fiore voice is sexy though.

As the word "Fiore" is an Italian word, it would seem that they're trying to approximate the original Italian pronounciation of the word, but are rolling the R sound too much to make it sound more like an L sound.

Click on the speaker icon found near the top of the page in the link to hear the word spoken in Italian.

...Except they're failing terribly at it. The original dub was fine pronouncing it with an American accent.

I cannot wait until January!! I hope it is not like the new dubs though. The original dub with Dic was pretty awesome. I hate the new ones (I saw it on Hulu but got disappointed at it not being the ones that I grew up with.) Minako-senapi here I come!!!!!!!! With the power of love :love: :love: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Viz release of the movies?

They also said on twitter they're working on plans to put both dub and sub versions in theaters. Also, if they're releasing one movie at a time, I wonder if the movie special will be included in this release.

This limited engagement also includes the North American debut of the original theatrical short, Make Up! Sailor Guardians and exclusive extras. A special bonus gift will be given to ticket holders while supplies last.
Guess that confirms that.

I'm really curious as to what the exclusive extras are, and I really wanna make sure I get my hands on 'em.

I hope there are showtimes for the (subtitled) release near me and that I'm able to get tickets. I missed out on Shin Godzilla because I forgot it was showing and I hate going to movie theaters. But for Sailor Moon, I'd make the exception.

I have the raw VOB files from the Japanese R2 release and made some caps from that.

It looks like Toei's own upscale for the movies. The vibrancy and DNR pretty much is consistent with their upscales of the TV series. Looks pretty good though! Thank goodness cuz Lord knows Viz doesn't know what remaster means.
