Dragon Quest Your Story Now on Netflix

Recommended Posts

I know it didn't go over so well in Japan when it released, but I watched it earlier today with my kids and I enjoyed it. But I love DQ, so it's kind of my thing. It's subbed and dubbed for those interested.

I sat down to watch it last night and I went in with even expectations (basically none) as I knew little of it other than a DQ5 tie and that I heard about it, that's it.

The movie is amazing, has an emotional ride that gaps various generations of time, you'll get angry, sad, happy, and eventually shocked and amazed at the premise of it all and what's behind it.  Actually cracked a smile I liked it that much as the ending concluded.  I have to say I was amazed just how good it was for a video game movie, as in it's up there in the tops above a huge pile of uwe boll and other garbage.

Neat.  Definitely something I wished existed as a kid, for how much my friends and I would make up our own fan stories for Dragon Warrior.

Will definitely watch this with the kids.

I'd recommend the sub. The animation has a sort of western influence so I thought it might work well with English voice acting, but no, it was horrible. Switches to subtitled Japanese immediately.

Anyway, it's a pretty movie, and it has some great moments, but the flaws are absurdly obvious.

1. Insanely rushed. The 20-30 hour game already suffers from a rushed pacing compared to the scope of the story, now imagine how that translates into a 1½ hour movie.

2. The ending. I guess it attempts to appeal to video game nostalgia, and the love of diving completely into a fairy tale - but it kinda has the opposite effect to me, it's not well handled.

I thought it was great. Even though it didn’t go well in Japan, I hope they make a few more.
