I just saw this movie and there doesn't seem to be a discussion thread about this so I thought I'd start a discussion thread going. Anyone else here seen this movie?

I saw it last night and am sort of still gathering my thoughts about it. Overall I enjoyed it a lot but part of my brain is still going "they did this in the show, they did that in the movie instead". Which is fine; I'm glad they're "alternate versions" rather than compilation movies, and I enjoyed having some of my expectations completely reversed.
IMO Alto's choice makes sense the way it was built up throughout both movies; he's got more in common with Sheryl, and I expected thye would do the whole "childhood meeting" flashback way back when they threw in that line about his visiting Galaxy with the kabuki troupe in the first movie.
OK, maybe my one disappointment was how the animation crapped out during Ranka's Alcatraz concert while Sheryl's performances all got more consistent animation; they clearly based that animation on live action footage, and head/body proportions are way off in several scenes.

I thought the movies were better than the TV series. The love triangle still left me cold as I find it hard to care why Alto should end up with anyone. Still, the fact that they went further in resolving the triangle than they did with the series was a positive move. I however thought this movie had too many fake deaths. Maybe one is tolerable but with this many, it became a farce.
