Let's not forget about...

The Phoenix Wright movie.

The trailer looks great.  I need to get around to the other games, but I did beat the first one years back.

That is what trailers do.
This depresses me. I feel like a goldfish right now...

Bump it up in your queue if you dare. Well, the general consensus is that the 2nd one is the weakest, so if you get that one out of the way it’s mostly smooth sailing.

Funny thing is, I have already played through the whole series twice, and if I went back and did it again now... I’ve forgotten how to get past all the most aggravating parts, just like last time! Going years between playthroughs can be good like that. Some games I replay just to refresh my memory so I can spout their jokes that nobody I know has heard—or get laughs of recognition from other huge nerds (there is no possible way this plan can backfire, I’m sure ;)).
we are in a horrible and deadly danger

It's in my top 5 queue right now.  After I finish DQIV and Canvas Curse, I'm debating internally if I'm going to play SH: Covenant, Devil Survivor, or Justice For All next.

Yeah... I feel a lot of my internet joke references here are probably only caught by you.

...and apparently the movie is good.

Number 5 on the cinema charts for the 11-12 February in japan.

Welp, finally saw this.  It didn't blow me away, but it's decent enough and doesn't do anything offensively bad.  It might even be fair to call it the best video-game-to-movie adaptation ever, considering how little that means.  I can't say for sure if it would make to sense to someone unfamiliar with the first game, but it just might stand on its own, though it can feel a little bit dense and muddled at times.

Something came to mind while watching the film that also struck me in watching Death Note: it felt like they had a budget for exactly this-many fancy FX shots and not a single shot more.  It's not a feeling I can ever recall getting from a non-Japanese movie.  Do you think this is common in Japanese films?

That is what good trailers do.

Made an addendum to make it more true.
