RE: Semi-nonspoiler review: "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within"

For those of you complaining about the Luddites with tech motif and
such, this is pretty much the basis for the theme, at some level,
from every Final Fantasy game (I'm especially thinking of FF III/VI).
Luckily, the RPG elements of the games far out weight the oddness of
the themes (at least to an Occidental audience, since this theme is
prevalent in lots of Nipponese movies, literature, etc.).

BTW, for those of you who don't know the theme I'm talking about, it
can be roughly stated as 'man in his natural state vs. man in an evil
state because of technology'.
