^lol plz elaborate

 

 

Also if you haven't seen Flight of the Navigator as an adult, do yourself a favor and indulge in a seriously underrated 80s gem. It's only a goofy kids movie for about 20 minutes; the rest of it (including the ending) is like a pretty great Black Mirror episode.

That’s a tall order. I can’t promise these are similar in the way you’re looking for, but they combine beautiful film, harrowing injustice, but also a message of hope in a way that reminds me of Room... If Beale Street Could Talk, Moonlight, Schindler’s List, and 12 Years a Slave. You know... real bummers.

I'm actually looking forward to watching Alita since they tweaked the big eyes to not be as creepy. I doubt it'll have the depth of the manga but it should be a pretty visually spectacular action movie. Looks like it stays true enough to be a fun ride.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

As someone who loved the original Alita books when I heard that Cameron, who loved the books, was off and Rodriguez was going to base it on the anime...I just gave up all hope.  Googly eyes just confirmed my doubts.  I'm gonna go see it but jesus christ am I not looking forward to it.

 

The original Alita works are without a doubt the best books I've ever read though.  Highly recommended, if anyone is so inclined.

Never read Alita, but saw the anime, i'm interested in the movie. Especially because everyone who saw it, mentioned that the actress to plays Alita does a fantastic job.

Yeah, I think if you go in with the expectation of a good story you'll be sorely disappointed. If you go in expecting a fun action romp, it's supposedly pretty dang good.

Wizwars, about the bush hogging. Just wet and part my man. Give that bush the Moses treatment and head for the Promised Land.

Whaaaaaaaaat.

It sounds weird to say but I love that it's just a real story.  It doesn't have the childishness overflowing in most japanese manga/anime works.  There's no cute flying sidekick pet.  It's just brilliant sci fi about a girl with amnesia struggling to find out who she is and why she can fight in a way no one's ever seen before.  And along the way she changes the world.  It's a beautiful story. 

 

It's not really about action either because it covers so many deep themes painfully well as her tragic life crashes into different parts of society.  If the movie doesn't preserve any of that, what a huge lost opportunity it will be.

Just finished watching Laputa Castle in the Sky for the first time ever. Speechless. This is such a masterpiece on every level. I went in with NO idea of what to expect, as I had never read anything about this movie before, and oh man, what a ride it was.

It kind of reminds me of Disney's Pinnochio, as in the movie before it was its studio's breakthrough and was an awesome film on its own right but this second one is where they achieve technical perfection and improve on every aspect.

On to the next Ghibli film!
