    Wow is this movie going to be ruined by the live action version or what?

    Plus every time I see this poster “MegaZone 23” pop’s in my head

    This movie is historic.

    If I was not an Atheist, I would pray nightly to Jesus and ask him to prevent Hollywood from re-making this.

    Unfortunately it is too late for Watchmen and Count of Monte Cristo. I still weep over these two adaptations.

    @ack – Watchmen isn’t even out yet. Judging books by its cover much?

    They already said they were going to make it as true to the original story as much as possible.

    I saw this in the theater back when it came out. I thought it was the bee’s knees at the time. Haven’t seen it since then, so no idea if I would still think so. What’s with all these live-action remakes? Is Hollywood really so creatively deprived that they must recycle plots from 20-year old movies? Setting up a deliberate comparison between one’s movie and a classic like Akira seems a recipe for failure. I didn’t see Speed Racer, but I understand that’s kind of what happened to it.

    Actually, even the DVD release sucks. They always insist on re-dubbing it, and inevitably they re-dub it with what their idea of the target audience is: 12 year-old American boys. As a result, it’s dumbed down compared to the old VHS version I have. I hate it. And I’d give odds to anyone who wants to bet that Hollywood won’t screw it up worse. I suppose we should be thankful Verhoeven isn’t directing, or we’d end up with an abomination worse than Starship Troopers.
