I was an ardent fan of Naruto and watched all of its episodes one after another and reached the end of Shippuden at that time. It was 2 years ago I guess and I last watched episode 220 or something... just after reanimation jutsu etc while the world war was going on. Then it became one episode per week and I stopped watching and thought to myself that I will pick it up again when it will be over. Alas! It is still going on but I have heard that it will end by this December. But now I am not sure that I remember the whole story and picking it up again will not be that enjoyable. So maybe I should re watch it whole and skip the filler episodes! That way I can join the current episodes within a month and watch the final as it air.
Or if I watch the Naruto movies, does it have the same story and characters and fill me in on all the important things to know before joining in on the current episodes which are going on nowadays? Movies will save me a lot of time and trouble but will they be enough?
