Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

And also, he doesn't kill a prostitute to get arms for Alita - this never sat well with me in the manga. Even if Alita does disapprove of what Ido does in the manga, I still like to think of Ido as being kinder than that, and I think most lay viewers would like to think of a saviour and doctor as b...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Hand goes up. I always thought he was a bit of a contrived antagonist. The only empathy I ever felt for him was that really powerful scene where he takes off his glasses. I was a little disappointed in the movie where they play that card right away. But other than that, I thought his role in the mo...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I saw the movie today / yesterday now, because I had to sleep a little after it to calm down and sort my feelings. I wasn't able to watch it in IMAX, like moooV suggested, because thare are no IMAX screens here in the city where I live, but, to my complete surprise, I didn't hate the movie like I wa...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I don't want something that replaces the manga, it's good enough as it is, at least I would want something that is as good but different! Even if the plot is different. And guys, be honest, if visual effects and quality wouldn't matter so much, you wouldn't be reading mangas but books. The story is...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Also the fact that back in the early 2000's ADV stopped distributing the OVA anime right after Fox/Cameron acquired the rights to Alita lends credence to the matter that this movie has been standing in the way of Alita getting a proper anime. And even if that WASN'T the case I don't think Kishiro w...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

This one is different - it truly looks like a Cameron movie, has his visual style and is indeed groundbreaking in it's own way technically. I can't explain it, the image speaks for itself. I mean, it's not explosions and all that chewing gum you see in most of hollywood movies - it's deeper, it's i...

So, the day has come and I've watched it - taken the best seats in imax, of course. Kamugin, go see it in an imax - it's a once in lifetime experience (since movies aren't usually displayed in cinemas after the show period ends), it's totally worth it from the visual point of view at least. The eye...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I wonder if Sergio would have liked the movie in the end. Good question. Other question is if we need another version of the story. For me the answer is "perhaps": I would like to see a new animation, specially because the first one was so poor. Alita's saga is too big to fit in a single movie. Not...

A friend of mine offered me a free ticket to go watch the movie. I didn't accept.

Eventually I will read th...

Well, I will most likely have complaints about the movie, but at least motorball looks good.
Now Ido is a supporter of Alita playing Motorball? Do you understand that this is a 180º turn against the manga? Everything goes if the sequences look good? -- And they don't--
Definitely not watching! :|

Not much to say about this chapter besides the fact that Kishiro is introducing new plot elements like he will live forever.

How many plots this movie has? 5-6 ? I feel I just watched the trailer for a Netflix series. :frown:
My thoughts exactly. We will have a paste-up of various highlighted moments of the manga/OVA, plus some others created for the movie, with poor development and ties between them.

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 031 (part 2) Is out!

I think the panzer kunst arc will be something like a panel at the end of one of the next arcs in which Kishiro will write "...and they spent the next 10 years training in Panzer Kunst". And then he'll start a new, totally unrelated, arc about a random homeless kid who wants to become the greatest ...

I didn't mind the Muster arc as a concept, but it would've been better if it was summarized into a single book. I mean, consider that this past arc was only maybe a couple months of Yoko's story at most, and yet it covers like 4 or 5 books... but the whole history of the Farrells, the family who ba...
