Btw, nice movie. I was actually thinking "Garo of Oz" when the story started rolling.
I think I remember them saying that they wouldn't be doing 720p after Wizard.

Finally got around to watching this. Was not digging it a first, but I warmed up to it.

Fucking space Gouten rocket lance drill chariot is best power up of all power ups. Did like that chick being the Makai Fish at the end.

Best thing for me was Taiga. Kouga hasn't actually talked to him since he died (obviously). I did think Rei one the tournament off screen and told Taiga to give Kouga a pep talk.

I absolutely LOVE this movie. I don't care for CGI filled movies or fantasy flicks but this one worked. I really enjoyed the fantasy/light-hearted aspect of the Garo legend and was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. There were a few things I really liked:

1) The characters. All of them had their own uniqueness while also tipping the hat to a few American classics. I loved how they associated the characters with items the human world has forgotten - pens and books for tablets, stuffed animals for electronics, etc... - out with the old in with the new. I also liked it's own nod to the tokusatsu genre being replaced with CG over traditional suits. Which leads to number...

2) The story. I thought it was quite solid. Normally I like a movie to have subtle hints at societal issues without having to fully explain it so that part of it I could have done without but it didn't leave me wondering about plot holes or trying to be so convoluted that it just loses me. The pacing was good and I enjoyed looking around at everything trying to figure out objects.

3) The visuals were stunning. I would almost say up to par with some recent Hollywood films. After reading some comments it really does explain why the CG in YWTM was garbage. I’ll be honest I was quite floored at the Azure Dragon version/mode.

Really I could go on about all the things I liked but I won’t bore you. I just thought it was a fun and visually appealing flick with a good message.

I wouldn't call those references... the only proper "reference" is the Scarecrow since he has a different personality and role in this story.

The rest is more like ripped off right in the first 20 minutes.

There's the main plot line from Alice in Wonderland, added a bit of Oz settings and Kakashi's house is a clear transposition to Howl's castle and the character itslef is similar.

The blue girls is basically the white rabbit (giving guidance but without explaining things properly), then there's the powerless kinight (the little guy with the scary face) as... the powerless knight and they need to defeat the Jabberwock/Maryuu. All this while the Queen of Hearts is going crazy with power.

I like the change from the usual setting but originality was left home this time.

You're right, it's obviously a big rip off with no originality to it.

It plays as it should for me. What media player are you using?

Edit: I take that back. Tried to skip through the video and I get the weird echo thing going on.

Edit again: VLC makes it work fine. This file has 2 audio tracks which is what causes that problem.

Generic technical stuff, but: Is your computer's Operating System up to date/have you tried checking for updates? And have you launched both MPC & VLC and tried to update them from within the programs?

I'm advised that Windows Media Player should be able to play the file, and if you have the issue, you should be able to go into the audio settings and select just one track.
