I just didn´t think movie 1 made much of an impact to me. There are no memorable moments in it. Unfortunatly most of the UY movies aren´t very good. I liked movie 2, and I liked movie 4 (the 2nd best film for me) but it should at least have had a proper plot. Movie 3 had a good beginning up to when she follows the magician through the city (good music at that bit) but then the rest of it I don´t care what happens and the characters are poor.

Oh... my... Lum!

So you say "there are no memorable moments in it"? Okay... Let's see ONLY a few because THERE'S TOO MANY OF THEM (potential spoilers) :





SPOILERS:



And that WHOLE scene where Ataru is about to get married to Elle and Lum just bursts through the window and Ataru runs like mad with a heavy ball attached to his foot and they hug each other. Lum's crying and Ataru even kissed her on the cheek!.

And that scene where Lum's holding Ten and they're both sleeping, Ataru appologizes to her and goes to kiss her on her forehead. She woke up and they both laugh about it, he covers her up and soon as he's about to kiss her, the spaceship where they are, suddenly stops and Ataru falls down.

HOW CAN THAT NOT BE MEMORABLE?!?!?!

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT MOST UY MOVIES AREN'T GOOD?!?!?! They have EVERYTHING UY has!!!!

Everyone has different opinions which should be respected but you... you just contradict what you say. You say you like UY but with those statements all you're doing is showing us that you don't like UY's plot and characters.

UY's characters aren't poor. I'll tell you what's poor: YOU ARE!

the characters are poor

When referring to the third film I meant that the characters that appear exclusively in that film are poor.Namely Ruu & Lahla.

I really don't think that the plots in the movies are that good. I do however very much enjoy the plots in the TV series and the manga.

Almost every movie has a scene where Ataru somehow expresses his feelings for Lum and I think that's one of the things that makes UY movies special.

That' probably would of happened to me to if I watched ANY movie first. I started on episode 1, and just got addicted to it from there on.

The problem with watching the movies first is, to a new viewer, there are all of these random characters everywhere, and they have no idea who there are. The TV show actually introduced them into the franchise properly. So I can see why the movies would be kinda "different" to a none-UY fan.

Might suggest reading the character profiles and story synopses on this and other UY fansites. Helped hook me.

That's obvious since the Movies are longer episodes but with its storyline more developed. In order to understand the movie, one would have to watch a few episodes first.

Also, I didn't show her ANY movie, I showed her the EPISODES!!!

Oh I see. I thought you were... Nevermind lol! xD

So anyways I think we would all agree that showing the episodes is the best way to make someone crazy for UY.

How come when someone misunderstands my comment, there is an uproar but when I correct them, no one reacts?
