Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Now that everyone is talking about precise adaptation of the manga for a movie/series/anime, I think the real question is why is that so important? Why someone (and even me I think) would want an adaptation so correct that it could replace the manga? I don't want something that replaces the manga, ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

But in Japan I don't think there would be any copyright problems, since it would be called Gunnm and technically not called battle angel at all so they would still be safe. Perhaps but it would still be the same property essentially. Also there would be problems localizing it where the studio would...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I don't see why you think in the sequel she might want to go to Zalem?? Literally the last scene in the movie heavily implies she wants to go up to Zalem to kick Nova's ass. Also the whole thing about the grand champion of motorball (or w/e) getting to go up to Zalem just reinforces that. But yeah ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Finally saw the movie too. We are all hardcore fans, maybe others more than some but you clearly should take the movie as an adaptation to the manga even if there are a lot of materials included as is in the movie. You can take it as an interpretation of the manga. A different version of the story....

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Saw the movie. I keep seeing people repeating the statements "oh theres scenes taken straight form panels of the manga!" but I honestly don't see the point of that if the script is complete trite and integral themes are missing. The integral theme of the internal struggle for ones own humanity is to...

Now I understand the claims of the movie looking like a video game just by going off some of these.

Re: Second Trailer for the Movie

Right now I am not feeling very well and I still have some unfinished work to do, so I will not write an in depth analysis. The "alien creature" looks less bad, still it isn't Alita. Everything else is the same as before: too many elements crammed in just one movie and too many unjustifiable change...

And by the way, what the frell is that ugly sword? Shouldn't it be too early for the Damascus Blade? I really hope that this is Zapan's knife. Apparently it's Zapan's knife, at least by looking at the new trailer. If that's the case, it looks awesome, I expect the Damascus blade to look even better...

Re: New Alita Comic-Con figure

The neck flaps around the 1/6 scale look super ugly.
But the other one looks ok. (other than the eyes of course)
Would love to get a new more manga styled figure eventually.

Re: If the movie does get japanese studios interested

I can only imagine the anime getting a soundtrack that is synth/cyberpunk sounding.

Maybe something that sounds like to Perturbator or Carpenter Brut, maybe even Dance with the Dead.

Does Neir have any tracks that I'm not aware of that sound like that?

Re: In defense of the eyes

It was always Jim's intention to create a photo-realistic version of the manga eyes that we're so accustomed to seeing. We really wanted to honour that tradition and see that look standing next to any human character. The part of "the doorway to the soul" is to embellish the decision... And they wa...
