The good/awesome news is that my friend managed to win tickets for todays R&C premiere event (the movie is due wednesday next week). So we were some of the first Dutchmen to formally watch it! We also got to play the final version game an hour before the actual movie!
The bad news is, however, that we had to watch the Dutch dub. This is something you can only understand as a Dutchman, I think. But Dutch dubs are horrific. It's the language' fault. It's hard on the ears and never seems to sound right. Plus the fact that the voices I'm used to have been replaced. When my friend said he'd won tickets I immediatly asked which version he got them for. But he didn't know and PlayStation NL didn't seem to know for sure either. But when we arrived at the cinema it clearly said that it was the dubbed version on the door. So… sh–.
I can't give my final opinion on this yet. The Dutch dub is hard to ignore and I spend most of the movie translating the sentences back in my head (I do that. I can't help it) which resulted in some awkwardly late laughs here and there.
The movie is absolutely gorgeous(!), filled with wickedly cool refrences (PSX intro!) and a story that fits the universe very well. I think that the characters are really cool too. Cora and Elaris definitely earned their place (But it was annoying that both characters were voiced by, what almost sounded like, the same Belgian?). Anywaaaay. I think this will be one of my favorite movies of all time. It's just… I didn't count on the Dutch dub. So me and my friend are going again next week. Sweet sweet English version. I view todays experience as 'just a preview'. ^^
Box office for the movie is not good in France… But don't worry, no body want to see the movie here because we have dumb Youtubers to do the voice of the characters…
