These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Like You Would Really Do It: DX3's climax brings the Cures one last chance to transform and save the world at the cost of never being able to see their mascot friends again. Seeing as how the movie was released towards the beginning of Suite, there was no way they'd permanently lock away the Cures' ability to transform.
Moment Of Awesome: Seriously, why were these 70 minutes each? There could have been even more ass-kicking!
The Zakenna airplane. Which Black and White promptly kick into the distance (while said plane is still several hundred feet up)
Milky Rose punching the ground and leaving a LARGE crater for the Big Bad to slip in.
In the sequel, she briefly goes into mascot form to dodge an attack androundhouse sucker punch her opponent back
In the third movie, when everyone ran off to make space on the Whack-A-Monster, Cure Moonlight just stood there unfazed like a complete Badass before she whacks the monsters singlehandedly and inspiring the rest of the Cures to get on whacking (lots of monsters eventually).
For most of the battle sequences, each team only fought strategically alongside their respective teammates, and "mixed combat" was more of a side-effect... until Cure Dream and Cure Bloom kick an Uzainaa butt TOGETHER! (While Egret and the rest of the Yes-Cures are busy surviving.) The power of earth and dreams! UNITED!!
In New Stage 2, after Cure March attempts a March Shoot at the Big Bad who simply dodges it and gloats how it's direct and lacks technique, Cure March proceeds to do a Macross Missile Massacre version of her attack after saying "I'll give you all the direct attacks you want!"
Narm: the epilogue of the third movie was supposed to be serious but ended up being happy instead.
The ending credits too. It was supposed to be really sad, but the happy ending music kind of ruin the mood.
Surprisingly Improved Sequel: The teams are seen interacting for some of the sequel (most notably the Heartcatch and Fresh teams), which is an improvement over the Stealth Hi Byes of the first movie. However, it's only those two teams that really interact for more than a few minutes, so mileage will vary.
Tough Act to Follow: DX3 delivered so much, be it actions, speaking parts, sweet, awesome and sad moments that the New Stage movies, while pretty good on their own, felt a little lacking when compared to the DX ones.
What Could Have Been: Teaser pictures for New Stage showed off a number of things including the Smile team under attack by Fusion over the city, Cures Peach, Blossom, Melody and Echo evading attacks by Fusion and a picture of Ayumi with Hibiki, Tsubomi and Love hinting that Ayumi would have known who the Cures were. None of this happened.
