Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Some people do make pg-13 to get more audience and more revenues in the box office, you notice how some hollywood movies kind of streamline movie's storyline to make it easy to follow, as since they want majority of the audience they try to make it not too complex for the audience You just stated t...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Only later i found out that the movie was going to be PG-13, which to be honest, will just be the death of it. PG-13 does not just mean the removal of (much) of the gore, it also means gutting the storyline so its "palpable" to the average American audience. There is studio interference as well, des...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

Some things suddenly occurred to me when watching the trailer again.... Aside from the eyes. 0:05: Gonzu being replaced gives me conflicted feelings, but... I don't know. Was his character that good or is it nostalgia or a resistance against change? I don't entirely mind the wholly more attractive a...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

True. Its a shame there are so few good movies that follow the source book/anime as it is intended. Thats why i'm going in with the state of mind: Its gunnm, but they are surely messing up the plot one way or another. The little change i can live with, but some movies just take the characters and r...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

- And Vector also being Nova... you gotta be shitting me.. But that is impossible. Vector = Nova means that actor is playing only ONE character. He is not. Good point. Vector and Nova are never together - Until the later Last Order chapters they're not even together within the same volume (v6 being...

First impressions: Finally! Wait.... Those eyes. WTF? Second watch: The eyes suddenly seem less obvious for some reason. Why is Ido missing his mark? The story seems... Odd. Makaku is in there, Vector is in there, Hugo is in there. It doesn't seem entirely taken from the anime or the manga, but elem...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Film teaser poster

A good adaptation does not blindly and strictly follow the source material. A good comic is not automatically the perfect storyboard and script for a movie, a good book is not automatically the perfect script. What works on a static page may not always work in a live action, moving version. If you ...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Film teaser poster

Just thought i'd add some thoughts: - Rodriguez directing may not be a big surprise. I've read somewhere that Kishiro is a big fan of Miller's work, but in particular of the live action version of Sin City. Can't remember where, but this may mean Kishiro had *some* say in who should direct (as Rodri...

Re: What is with Alita's gender-bender thing?

The 'gender bending' did very much fit into the story, didn't it? The berserker body just happened to be configured for a male since that's how Ido found it. The gender of the cat has nothing to do with the name (Gally), which is apparently gender neutral, just like Alex or Sam. The motorball body w...

Hugo, Jashugan, Makaku... I know, they're dead, but they had a significant part in Gally's development. Even if just in flashbacks they may be back ^^ Figure and Kaos, i haven't seen those in the gif? Whhyyyyy? And i guess Kishiro may have been pressured by the publisher a little too much... Maybe i...

I think it's a hoax.... Mostly because Kishiro himself is working on the project aswell. I hope he didn't sign a contract where Cameron can screw over the storyline as he desires. Also, a complete CG scene over a year before the movie's release? Complete bullcrap. The earliest you can have finished ...

Their feet aren't far enough apart to make any big difference in their height.... 1-2 cm at most. And actually, i've always thought Alita was a little bit smaller than 5'. But this seems right no the mark, not that far off. I thought Nova and Sechs were taller though. And Toji seems a bit too big as...

Mercurius *is* the proper Latin name for the planet, actually. Just as it's Saturnus and Neptunus rather than Saturn and Neptune. Those are just English language bastardization.

It actually is just the Imaginos, with a couple of other bits. I don't know if you realized, but the tuned body is technically R-rated...

In other words, it is very likely that Alita will revive the Panzer Kunst colony on Mars - Officially it doens't exist, but it is secretly affiliated with the Mars Kingdom Parliament.

But the Fata Morgana came into the game very late. What happened with the brain-Alita all the time. But you are right. If the brain was in a coma until the time with the installed Fata Morgana and now they are linked... But for me this would be a lame solution. I get more and more the same feelings...
