Final Fantasy & Fast Five Friday! Movie Edition

I'm so ready for this weekend. I have a bit of a busy one again, but God is still good. I'm still loving my new blogging schedule because I'm so ready to get to another day where I can post, especially a Friday post! And today, I get to return to Final Fantasy Friday!

Last night, my cousin brought over his laptop, and I was finally able to watch Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. This is a prequel to the highly awaited game which should be coming out next month. The trailer is below.

(SPOILER ALERT: Sean Bean is the English voice actor for King Lucis. If you understand Sean Bean characters, you'll know why this is a spoiler alert.)

In this movie, we follow Nyx, a highly respected soldier in the King's army as betrayal and sabotage destroy the kingdom. Half of the time, I was just in awe of how real some of the people looked! At one point, I almost said, "That monster looks so fake," but then remembered I was watching a fully animated movie! It's so beautifully done, and Square thinks they're slick, but I totally saw a nod to some of the older games, a few being:

Ardyn Izunia's one super-long sleeve resembling Sephiroth's one wing
Niflheim's demon looking like a very specific FFVII Weapon
It looks like I'm just speaking gibberish at this point, but I'm not. lol Anyway, I can't wait for this game to come out! I hope it's amazing! All this prep work for it, it just needs to be.

And now: a couple of this month's Fast Five questions from the Cover Girls, Dani and Jackie! Join in if you like. This is a particularly good one, for Halloween!

Oct. 7th - 5 horror movies you love to watch this time of year
The Shining
The Haunting

 Oct 21st - Name 5 sci-fi/horror books/movies that scared the crap out of you
Dead Silence
Final Destination
Scream 2
I used to read a whole bunch of Christopher Pike when I was a teenager, but I don't think any ever scared me, and the Stephen King's books I've read so far horrified me more than scared me, lol.
What about you guys?

Final Fantasy Forever. Thanks for sharing that clip Deb. :)
Christopher Pike's books makes you bristle more than scare. Dead Silence movie was something else. Orphan was freaky, what a ride! Misery by Stephen King was both scary as a book and a movie. And I've only seen the Pet Sematary movie. Can't imagine the book, it must be scary as hell. Oh and the It movie which I've only watched in pieces. *Hides*

I take it you're excited about the game?
Poltergeist was a cool film. I still can't believe they remade it. Why?

Debra Renée Byrd said...

Did they?! The first was good enough!
