Anyone who is, for whatever the reasons, already disappointed about this movie, instead of posting those on regular discussion threads for MiloStar movie, please post it here. biggrin.gif

Also, we're designating this thread as a "safe haven" thread. And therefore, we ask FMA fans who are excited about this movie to please kindly stay away from posting rebuttal on this thread, and please keep this thread for those who are disappointed about this movie to safely express his/her opinions, thoughts, & feelings. smile.gif

For those who are disappointed about the movie, let us remind that just because this thread is a protected safe-haven thread, that does not mean this is a free-fall thread where you can bash FMA MiloStar movie, or for that matter, any FMA series or FMA fans. Please try to stick to explaining your reason for your disappointment without trashing or bad-mouthing the upcoming movie, or any FMA series/FMA fans.

Thank you! biggrin.gif

Sorry for sounding harsh but this movie seems like an OC fanfic,sadly.I have read some and I can say I remember I've read something similar like this in fanfiction.net dry.gif

But let's be honest there,do we need this? FMA has already an amazing cast why they never tought about a Xing movie? Or a Flame Alchemist spin-off (team mustang action that lacked in original series) heck,I always wanted to see Roy and Edward fighting together against someone filler or canon.It'd have been damn awesome.I quite don't understand this.Seriously until now half of the movie about Julia and Melvin.Not even Ed and Al.I don't care for them.Who is she? I prefer to see a pre-manga-teen military staff (including olivia) flashbacks then those I-will-never-see-them-in-canon guys' sad life.I'd prefer to watch a movie where Winry uses her wrench as an actual weapon,lol.

I know this movie is not that bad because unlike Shamballa there isn't any OOC action but why don't they show any other sides of the characters we love instead of adding new characters? That's my only complaintment and disappointment.

OT:
Oh my thank you acaray for the summary! I hope you'll continiue it because I am not thinking to watch it,this summary will help for me.

See, that's actually the one aspect of this whole production that has me most intrigued - I love that fan fiction type stuff because it affords other minds the opportunity to experiment with distinct musical, directorial, animation and story-telling techniques. It doesn't always work, but if done well (as in, say, the opening episode of Brotherhood), has the potential to be really entertaining. More of the same, especially at this point in FMA's lifecycle, strikes me as 'too much of a good thing.' Granted, I would have preferred something a bit more relevant (say, a movie about Bradley's early years and the founding of Armestris, Hohenheim's personal journey/romance with Trisha, or Roy's alchemy training), but an examination of Creta's relationship to Armestris is still valid canonical development.

I do have to comment, though, that of all the areas outside the world of Central glimpsed thusfar, Xing seems to me the most stereotypical and least worthy of further consideration. There's an element of personal bias in that statement, certainly, but I just can't bring myself to care for the two dimensional presentation of certain elements within the Xing sub-plot (Fu and Mei's generic characterization with stereotypical ninja tropes presenting the worst offense to my sensibilities). They've always struck me as unnatural additions to the FMA character roster, and speaking truthfully, Melvin, Julia, or even the Black Bat squadron fit into my concept of FMA far more seamlessly than alchemist ninjas.

While I harbor some overall disappointments with the direction of Milos Star ('off-topic' side story narrative, questionable art style), in the end, I think I will grow to appreciate this film. It's directorial quality certainly appears more consistent than Brotherhood's schizophrenic oscillation between phenomenal and pedantic.
