  1. It looks like they are drawing from most of it, and since all of the versions of GITS are slightly different.......well..... It's actually a lot like Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy in that way. I think in the blurb for the first Dirk Gently novel it described Douglas Adams as being the "author of all of the different and wildly conflicting versions of HHGTTG". That's ok though. I predict that this will possibly be more of an "origin" story. It is Hollywood, and we know how much they like them. I also predict that there will be shitloads more exposition than any other version of GITS. Hollywood, once again. I don't think that this movie should have to be a slave to the previous versions of the story, that would suck. There is nothing wrong with it following it's own path. There's nothing wrong with being surprised.
  2. To be honest, I think they have the leitmotif's of Bats, Supes and WW nailed down pretty well in this movie series. Distinctive and can be blended together well.
  3. I think that the Nolan films gave the best representation of a bat-signal. Messy as hell and useless if you don't have clouds to reflect off.....
  4. Star Trek 50th anniversary in five days? Does anybody care? I think that Doctor Who had a bigger celebration of it's 50th. LOL
  5. I've still think the design is fine, it's just a pity that they put out a trailer with shoddy rendering, etc It looks like a demo for a trailer, not the final product.
  6. That's all well and good when you are going up against a bigger target (like a capital ship), but in dogfighting you want a narrower range of attack to really get the guy right in front of you. That or X-Wings should have a central blaster down the center line of the ship to help ensure that the pilot does not miss. How good would it be if they used their variable capabilities the same way as Valks, constantly switching between modes. That would look great.
  7. Simple review. Not as bad as they say, but still riddled with problems. Needed more work at the scriptwriting stage (like most movies these days it looks like they started filming on a second or third draft, *sigh*) and it looks like editing is becoming a lost art. And despite what a lot of people say, I enjoyed the movie more when it became more serious towards the end.
  8. Everybody hates it. I like it. A more inspiring piece of music probably would have helped the overall presentation, but the choice of shots was nice.
  9. I think that the popularity of this game has surprised the media/general public simply due to the fact that a lot of people didn't know how popular Pokemon is. If you're above a certain age range the game/show means little to you and all of a sudden its popularity is being shoved in everyone's faces. But yeah, this is just a fad as well.
