Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Thinking about it, one major emotional landmark that I’ve been worried about being faithfully reproduced has been Hugo’s death, but if you think about it it is quite similar to Jack’s death in Titanic.... So at least that aspect of the story has a solid chance of being preserved...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Guys, I am going to Jedi mind trick myself into justifying anyone who criticizes the decision to make Alita, and only Alita as having Gollum eyes.... She’s special. What does that mean? It means she is not only a cyborg, but a MASK TUMOR. Extracted from Kagura’s breast. On Mars. 300 years ago. Expla...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Ever since I saw the trailer a couple days ago, I’ve been obsessed with one scene, which is both in the manga as well as the Anime. Hugo’s death. It’s make or break and could easily be politicized as well.... A tragic metaphor for those “blinded by ambition, the climb to the better place,” deeply re...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Ok so, I have to make a confession, I am very curious about how faithfully the “deckmen” will be portrayed. It’s, at least for me, bizarre quirks like chubby cheeks and lipped facial parts, that are supposedly human because they have a consciousness, but are otherwise metal cylinders, that draw one ...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

I don’t know what to say guys, I want to leave a possibility for myself to actually be able to love this movie, but if I close my heart to it that won’t be possible! Obviously, like the OAV, it’s going to be different. Vector dies in the OAV, and they never continued the story, but had they that dec...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Hmm... Hearing stuff like nova “possessing” Vector does worry me a bit more, for the sake of having a SHOT at loving this movie I’m definitely willing to trust to some degree, but for example I would eventually love to see Zapan’s transformation in a later adaptation but if they screw around too muc...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

They are being used as a narrative tool! This is film attempting to do what the manga style has been doing for ages, which is to provide a visual exaggeration to amplify emotion in an otherwise heartless universe. Remember how strange it seemed to come across the style itself in the first place, it ...

@kamugin... I’m curious how many times did you watch the trailer? :^)

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

I am bummed about Gonzu but at this point I not only have accepted certain changes I am looking forward to seeing them. As long as the changes are like the Manga vs the Anime, where emotional landmarks are still honored, then I am very optimistic. I noticed that in other ways the shots were extremel...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

How do I feel about the eyes? I 1000% LOVE THEM! At first they were strange, then I grew accustomed and now I am in love. The ballsy decision, at risk of disaster, to have her eyes like that serves many purposes. 1st, it actually makes her Alita. But it also does something more important, since no o...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 024 (part 2) Is out!

There's no doubt in my mind that Muster had them take their clothes off before petrifying them.... Any gruesome detail is left for our own interpretation, which only adds to the chill factor!

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 024 (part 1) Is out!

But, as far as the actual moment I made the connection between the maske tumor and the berserker cells, which if I'm not wrong, was always known to be a martian technology, was when Kagura's hideous arm was revealed from behind the curtain. That was when I actually thought there might be a connectio...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 024 (part 1) Is out!

Hi all! Well, the reason I suspect that there's a connection between the maske tumor and what eventually become berserker cells, is somewhat philosophical.... It has something to do with the treasure as well I suspect, which is the secret of eternal life.... I'm being broad and vague and probably mi...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 024 (part 1) Is out!

Hi all! I'm new as an official member, but definitely not new as a guest to this site or Battle Angel! I just wanted to share my thoughts and opinions, and start off by saying that I absolutely love Mars Chronicles, I truly think it's some of Kishiro's darkest, almost Chronenbergesque work since "An...
