Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

It was Rodriguez's idea to keep stylised manga-ish look from early concept-arts. Cameron just agreed with it. And that was realy nice decision. Most of the new movie fans fell in love with that unusual look of heroine. I've became fan of manga along before the movie went in production, but I still l...

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

Remember that the main reason Cameron and Rodriguez choose the big eyes was to emphasize that Alita wasn't human, their Alita was a "doll" in many ways. You're wrong. They didn't want to "emphasize that Alita wasn't human". They wanted her to be a human, but with lineaments of anime stile. Your pic...

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

How to have "anime eyes" and still be cute: http://dolk.jp/up/item_img96807_10.jpg The question is only about having a good artist to do the job or not. It is not a "realistic human-like look", plastic doll at best. Like from another full CGI anime. It's ok for something like Resident Evil CGI movi...

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

This "exposure effect" as you call it, on me have the opposite effect. I may like a cartoon/animated movie at first, however when my 5yo daughter starts rewatching it over and over, like kids usually do, very soon I come to hate it. I feel the same. That's why i don't watch many times any film, eve...

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

the movie would have to pass the 500 million mark to actually earn profits and justify a sequel. with 400 mil they already justified production budget. With incomes from merch, tv licensing, streaming and dvd\blu-ray sales they will get at least some minor profit. Also it's not all just about the n...

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

Man, watching it over 10 times is brainwashing, my brain would become jelly if I tried that! Even my all time favorite movies I didn't watch them over 3~4 times.

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

Just amazing. Probably there won't be a sequel, but we can be proud of this movie and how it menaged to capture the heart of so many people who didn't know that GUNNM even existed. I am proud and, despite of it having flaws and some major changes of manga's plot, think that is the best entertaining...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Ok, let me try from another point... Is Alita in the movie fast? Yes! Is she faster then enyone else? Yep! Does she need more speed to look awesome? No, she already is! It is great when the action is clearly recognizable while still being very fast. For me, this is as essential as a non-shaking came...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

If we take physics to the letter, Alita couldn't throw a punch at, let's say, Grewishika, without suffering an equal amount of damage (law of action-reaction). She did not punch him with any significant power in the movie, btw. She is only dismembered his arm at the joint point once, pushed in tors...

No way... I do not want Alita movie to be another unrealistic cartoon-styled ultrafast action with heroes, endowed with unnatural and magic-like abilities. It works fine with manga, where you imagine the motions like in anime. But i definitely appreciate JC and RR for the film going by realistic li...

Nova's primary motivation in the manga is to identify individuals with deep karma and test them. Well, if the prequel novel is anything to go by, he's just a tin-plated dictator.

Not sure if I should be telling you that in 2007 a Gally action figure was released (as in the manga version - or at least some weird mishmash of various designs of Gally, though she mostly looks like the first LO design). :P She's a bit flawed and very expensive nowadays, though. Yes I know. But s...
