Re: I've touched a damascus dagger

I know that the real damascus blacksmith techniques are lost forever. However, all that things called "damascus" nowadays are a recreation of it - not perfectly precise though, but still. I think, we can call it "damascus", because there is no real damascus anymore - only in the museums. I don't se...

There is always the hope that God will listen to Int 29Ah and make Cameron give up. Right... Like he let others take over Terminator.

So, its a friend of mine's birthday soon, and as she is a Alita fan too (and as my spy assistant informs me - does not have any Last Order volumes) - I thought of getting her the first four volumes. Its a bargain on amazon. Most Last Order volumes are 4-for-3 deal. So, I type in B... and amazon now ...

99% of characters are cyborgs. I must disagree here. Let's see: Daisuke, Hugo, Shumira, Kaos, Nova e Koyomi. I am quoting by memory, so I'm probably forgetting someone. Zapan, Gonzu and Alita herself are cyborgs, but they have specific faces. In short, the problem remains. Sorry, again... was away....

Actually, V for Vendetta is already a perfect storyboard (as it happened with 300 and Sin City ), but the cynical brothers believed themselves to be more creative than the original creator. The result was profanation, not art. Not really... V4V is a much deeper and much more difficult to transfer t...

In my opinion, it JUST doesn't have to be made. (Why - read previous pages.) It WILL be made. Sooner or later, it will be made. Now... If I had to choose between current "brand name" directors - I think I'd still stay with Cameron. If nothing else - then for the Dark Angel. Which was obviously infl...
