Eden of the East starts with a bang in the TV series, then follows it up with two movies, the second of which ended up being a prime example of what I shall call Fridge Rage.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works feels like a choppy video game in it's first act however once it enters the second act it starts feeling like an actual movie and I found it enjoyable. There are still huge gaps in the plot but it does a few things better than the TV series that came before it.
