Re: Alita: Battle Angel reviews

The kids playing motorball COMPLETELY shows the mistake of forcing motorball too soon and making the city waaaay too safe. Yugo just dies for no reason. He just wants to go to Zalem for the hell of it. I'm convinced he (James Cameron) read the first 4 books and was like; I got it I'm making a movie....

Re: One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

just rereading...Toji probably couldn't have defeated Anomaly. He was not supposed to be in the finals is the point.

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I'm a little disappointed in the Nova reveal/plot we got...a little MBadi, a lotta GIB inspector....I think he will ultimately be a prisoner of Zalem which hits the right notes. I will say that Edward Norton is 10X any other actor I can think of to play Nova. He is amazing so we'll see. There is jus...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Complaining about the plot is dumb...we'll see.

Yugo/Hugo died which I didn't think was going to happen...I see that as the most important note to end on.

Dang did they want to rush into Motorball.

I've been positive about this for years but the changes are brutal. I WISH it looked more like Sin City...

Re: So, the flesh and blood Gally...

Another HUGE HUGE..really the biggest mystery of the series left at this point...does Mars have ancient history? The entire timeline isn't that long I believe. 1-200 years of Mars, even with fantasy quantum computer guidance couldn't have yielded the ancient ruins, that contained the Masque Tumor......

I think it is an early image...he planned. I never read Memory of Mars game info closely but we got the main part of her origin via the Masque Tumor so yeah. The cool glaring thing he didn't plan is the Zott tournament character creation contest character....people came up with crazy ideas and he to...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 030 (part 2) Is out!

People here like "to be in lala land" when Kishiro just showed that he doesn't stretch things that far. The first explanation why Alita's brain survived the re-entry and 200 years of trash dump was because of the zubringer stuff. After the first ending was discarded, no reasonable explanation was g...

I think the Maske Tumors are going to be a bio weapon research fail...clone soldier brains or something.
