It’s time to du-du-du-du du-du-du-DUEL…opinions on a Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie! But not just any Yu-Gi-Oh! movie; we’re talking about THE Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie, its first theatrical feature, The Pyramid of Light! Recently re-released by Fathom Events in theaters earlier this year, the Mavericks managed to see it at the very same AMC theatre they originally saw it at when they were kids. Oh, the nostalgia! Of course, The Pyramid of Light has a notorious reputation for being a terrible film – it’s the second lowest rated animated movie on both Rotten Tomatoes AND Metacritic for heaven’s sake! So, did the Mavericks regret their decision to sit through this film again, or did the heart of cards guide them through? The answer might surprise you…
