The Heisei films built up a reputation for themselves during the early 90's, so fans tend to overrate the series's overall importance in light of its relative obscurity. With the Millennium films, we have a collection of movies that were mostly dumped direct-to-video in the wake of a disappointing Hollywood movie. There was neither the prestige of the originals or the anticipation (and bootlegging) of the middle series. Lack of mystique = weaker reputation.
This has to be the most intelligent thing I've seen posted in quite some time. Well said man.
I agree, that's an excellent point. The only Millennium film that got a lot of fan anticipation was GFW.
