Lance, is this the movie you've already seen or is this another upcoming?
Another upcoming. The one I watched recently was Arietty, based on The Borrowers.

Hahaha, fucking AutoCorrect, but at least it made for a killer Arrested Development reference, so all is well.

Oh that's excellent. Now I really can't wait to see it. No idea why I hadn't yet looked to see what it was about.

That Borrorwers film that came out years ago was a favorite of my cousin and I. I'd probably be embarrassed of it now.

Your face looks abysmal. I think it looks like they've captured the novel quite well.

. I just hate when certain movies get redone, and I've never understood the point of remaking an animated film.

Jaume Collet-Serra is a really talented dude. I didn't love Orphan, but it showed the work of a surprisingly adventurous filmmaker. Unknown on the other hand is still probably the best genre picture I've seen this year. Fantastic.

Anyway, regarding Akira, I love quite a few sequences from the film, but never quite got all the hosannas. Kind of a sloppy, patchwork adaptation that doesn't quite stand up as a full feature film, I feel. I certainly don't begrudge someone else trying to reshape the original 6-volume manga masterwork into a new live action piece. I think the potential choice of director and more limited budget could force a number of really exciting creative decisions that probably wouldn't have otherwise occurred with the original plan for production.

That's an awful lot of optimism there Lance, I love Akira the way it is - as fucked up as it is...

This remake interests me but at the same time terrifies me...

Talented guy working on strong source material. Even if it's a complete disaster I don't see (and rarely do) what the big fuss is over remakes anyway. And yeah it's going to be live-action, and the original vision a few years back was to make it a two-part re-imagining based on the original manga material, so it's not even a remake per se.
