Alita Battle Angel! (movie)

Post by andymac0035 » Thu Feb 28, 2019 7:59 pm

I don't go to the movies very often these days, but this one got me (and Samantha) out there last weekend. It's based on Japanese Manga (think comic book graphic novels), and there was also some anime features on it as well. The Manga is 30 years old, and the anime is from the 90's. James Cameron bought the rights in 2000, and it's been simmering on his back-burner. After watching this, I'd say it was worth the wait. I found and watched the anime after seeing the movie, and read some of the Manga last night. I'm amazed how true they stayed to the source material. We are considering going back to see it again.

I'm not into all that Japanese Merengie or Harambe stuff. The snippets I've seen is sense assaulting, poorly animated, and incoherent, just not my thing. 8)
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

This one is different. It's more sci-fi and adventure. Most of the characters are not Japanese and it doesn't take place in Japan either.
I'd never read Manga till last night, but this one I did like.

Anyway, this is a live action film, or what passes for one, since there there are a lot of "Avatar-like" effects in it.

Saw this with my son. I was pleasantly surprised. My criteria for movies like this is pure entertainment. I was definitely entertained and will see the sequel when it comes out.
