Yu-Gi-Oh! 10 Year Anniversary Movie Mock Review: So bad its Funny

Oh man, I was not planning to watch or even review this movie but, I feel obligated to do it. I discovered the Yu-Gi-Oh! 10 Year Anniversary Movie and I had to see it. This must have been the funniest anime movie I have seen in a while.

This movie is about some villain named Paradox who travels time to steal the "soul" of cards so he can make the greatest deck in order to kill Pegasus by making the cards come to life to save his own era. Yeah, I know this sounds stupid, but just go with it. Before committing the act, he stops by different eras to pay a visit to the main protagonists of Yu-Gi-Oh GX and 5D's, Judai Yuki and Yusei Fudo. Somehow, these two idiots travel time to team up with Yugi Mutou to stop the time traveling douche. How do they stop this foe? By playing a children's card game.

Before I continue, I use play the card game from 2003 until 2006. I have completely lost touch with the show and the actual game. However, it does not stop me doing some research to point out the ton of continuity errors of this 50 minute long movie. First of all, they show a glimpse of Pegasus millennium eye. Pegasus lost the eye and it was sealed away for all of eternity. Second of all, they showed Yugi with the millennium puzzle and the spirit of the puzzle was still around. Again, the puzzle was sealed away for all of eternity and the spirit of the puzzle had pasted on. To someone knows this franchise very well would get pissed off.

Now, there was thing bugging me and it was after the game was over, the fabric of time and space should have been destroyed. SPOILER TIME: Yugi was taken 30 minutes into the past before Paradox destroyed a few building to murder Pegasus and the only survivor was Yugi. Two Yugi Mutou now exists in the same timeline causing a paradox(no pun intended)in time. I would like to go on a long tangent on time travel but, this is not the time for it.

The real comedy is behind the card game itself. Most of the time, I was just laughing because I was lost. I was just saying to myself "what the is a Synchro card?" and "why are the monsters alive, it it because of science or magic?". Another thing that was ridicules, it was 6 - 7 turns long.

It is clear that this movie was made for kids that have a short attention span. The only reason why I would ever recommend this movie is just laugh at it.
