In honor of the recently released Yugioh: Dark Side of Dimensions, Lawlmartz presents the long awaited:

Children's Card Games Saga Part III:
If Monsters Are Real, Does That Mean Card Games Are Real Life?

It's truly been far too long since I last watched Yugioh. Heck, the last installment of the Children's Card Games Saga was back in October, so it's high time to let loose on what was the most kick ass movie of 2004.

I liked this movie long ago, but it became painful to watch.

I love Yuugi-ou as much as the next person and Pegasus and Kaiba would be among my favorite characters - but here, even they are too bombastic and annoying. Yuugi is too preachy and dramatic (I watched the version with Dan Green, I don't think there is japanese one), Kaiba is too sadistic, Pegasus is too crazy and Anubis is a bad villain.
Action scenes with mummies and Jonouchi, Honda and Yuugi could've been fun, but they were in there too long. The same goes for a card game climax.

It's really entertaining, the theming for the most part was pretty good, the monsters where awesome, and the sound and music blew my balls off, but compared to the actual series, it was kinda lame.
Though I will say that the movie's artwork and animation where all really well done, for the most part, it got really boring when Anubis stepped in, and in my opinion, even Kaiba's duel read more

After Pokemon lauched it first film back in the early 2000s, why not Yu-Gi-Oh get's own movie too? Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light (Hikari no Pyramid) was a first attemped for Konami to sell and promote their cards on the kids. However, the movie had problems and doesn't really go good with story-wise. The film's director was Hatsuki Tsuji. Although the movie took place after the Battle City arc, it is debatable as to whether or not it is canon due to the alternate explanation of how Yugi Muto solved the Millennium Puzzle and the inclusion of Anubis (who has not been mentioned outside read more
