OK, so I played some more Viewtiful Joe 2. Finished the first "film", actually. The world boss was a big T-Rex named Big John. It was a pretty tough fight (and I still regret not playing this game on an easier difficulty) but it was also fun, if a bit repetitive. Afterwards was a cutscene every bit as cool as the opening cinematic with a narrator whose voice could not fit more perfectly. Turns out these films I'm playing around in are being played in Joe's dad's theater. After a bit of convincing by Silvia, he changes the reel to whatever world 2 is going to end up being. See you on the other side. And by you I mean the nonexistent group of people reading this.
