Why did they make the jacket look so fucking shitty? What the fuck Hollywood?
Huh. Thats true.
Theres still a bunch of modeling pictures left on the archive. I never thought Samumenco threads would end up like that.
This movie is basically groundhog day in a war zone?
Yes. Read the novel.
easier to move in
easier to make
it has very little in common with aykik anyway so why would you complain?
Why buy rights to the material to adapt it and make it something completely different? They just gave money to some jap for no reason.
Because I was hoping that it might be good.
It was made via committee, they probably acquired the right for a project that collapsed and decided to make a shitty summer blockbuster out of it by slapping Tom Cruise in there.
bullshit it is a crappy copy of All You Need Is Kill
Who knows. It may come out and surprise us. I'm not saying to expect anything from it, but don't condemn it before it's had a chance.
Welcome to Hollywood, land of poor decisions.
Why would you have hope for any Hollywood movie to be good?
I am naive, and wanted to believe that they wouldn't ruin another good story.
Let me guess, you're also looking forward to Captain Earth.
Tomu Kuruzu is now saving anime in addition to being the last samurai?
Plenty of Hollywood movies have been good recently like Pacific Rim.
You mean this one?
Only because it was made by a director that actually wanted to make it, and had the talent to pull it off. Doug Liman makes generic Hollywood-committee dogshit.
It was about as good as any lighthearted action movie can be.
Its still going to rake in millions.
Not him, but it's pretty terrible. It's barely even an action movie. You get about 25 minutes of robot-monster fights in the whole movie and the other hour and a half is some retarded drama with terrible acting. And I can't watch Charlie Day in anything without thinking of Always Sunny.
Maybe if you judge is as an actual movie and don't compare it to something it is LOOSELY based on you will find that you can enjoy it more.
Or you can be that faggot who screams "hurr they out X from the book the book was much better."
But who am I kidding, this is /a/. You are going to hate it because you have already decided you will hate it.
>It's barely even an action movie.
>action movies can't have a build-up, it is all about figthing an explosions
There are a shitton of movies for simple minded apes like you out there.
His point was that the build up was shit.
>thinking Pacific Rim had any sort of meaningful build up
>actually calling someone else simple-minded
Anything outside of the actual robot fighting in that movie was hamfisted garbage. At that point, it should have been comprised mostly of robot fighting.
Based on what argument? Did he expect an Inception build up in a Kaiju movie?
The movie is supposed to be silly, it was medocre but it did its job.
>Inception build up
You've got to be joking. Judging by your past two posts, you are the definition of pseudo-intellectual.
It makes me wonder how they will change Yukikaze. The books... unless they follow the direction of the anime and make it gay.
There's no point to the build up if it's going to be shit. Might as well make the whole movie just robot fighting instead of wasting all that time on the build up.
>Anything outside of the actual robot fighting in that movie was hamfisted garbage.
I did not even realize this was an adaption of AYNIK
And Pacific Rim was good fuck you guys
I prefer to think that they're going by the same logic as Starship Troopers and that turned out pretty good if you ask me. I doubt this movie will have any gore though.
I guess that since you are paying top dollar for a pretty face to put in your movie and better convey emotion even during fight scenes you're not gonna cover it up with a full face power suit helmet.
It's actually a pretty nice design for a mass produced exoskeleton that's supposed look practical and not sexy.
Song was pretty good though.
You should've abandoned all hope when you heard Tom Cruise was the lead.
From the wikipedia descriptions they seem identical other than the localization of the names and all.
Don't tell me you actually enjoyed the generic romance plot or horse shit about "drift compatibility"
You all need to take a good look at this
>unless they follow the direction of the anime and make it gay.
So basically Top Gun?
I haven't read All You Need is Kill. It still looks like shit.
>Tom Cruise stapled in there to put asses in seats
>Director is Doug fucking Liman, the king of Bad-to-Mediocre directing
>trailer reveals entire plot so the lowest common denominator isn't confused
>it was in screenwriter hell and then rushed out of it
>lead producer is Erwin Stroff, his experience is being Keanu Reeves' manager. That's fucking it.
Get hype, movie of the year 2014.
It will either be laughably bad and quickly forgotten or stunningly mediocre and forgotten even faster.
The best possible thing that will come out of it is the Red Letter Media video,
You realize the guys that make those only do it for fun and aren't actually trying to make a serious criticism of the movie, right?
Charlie Hunnam wasn't much good but I liked Stacker, I liked Ron Perlman, and I liked Charlie Day even though I can see why you wouldn't.
>Don't tell me you actually enjoyed the generic romance plot or horse shit about "drift compatibility"
The romance plot wasn't actually generic though. That's what was good about it. There was no kiss at the end. There was no bullshit love dovey shit. And what was wrong with the drift compatibility stuff? It was an interesting concept.
>posts link to one of those mega nitpick videos
The first thing he says is wrong with it is showing terms. Seriously those videos are just made to piss off fanboys and get views.
Yeah, nothing about this film looks remotely good. It'll be a fucking miracle if they manage to get decent critical reception.
Well I like Ron Perlman in anything. Charlie Hunnam is only good in Sons of Anarchy. Charlie Day... is Charlie Day. He shouldn't be in a scientist role. Idris Elba was alright.
I took Inception as an example, because all the movie is a build up for just a final scene.
Memento is a better example.
Nobody is trying to prove something here. We are discussing, no need to attack others.
That is what Transformers is, all the movies are shit.
They don't need one, they can just pay the usual suspects to say it's good. Not like the people who actually enjoy these movies listen to criticism anyway, or even know what it is.
I actually though that John Carpenter was going to direct the Battle Angel Alita movie, but then I found out that it was James Cameron and I misread some article.
Now I'm really fucking worried.
Maybe generic wasn't the right word, but it was certainly underdeveloped. There wasn't much of a reason for either of them to fall for each other aside from the plot demanding it.
And my problem with drift compatibility is that it doesn't mean anything. He was drift compatible with his brother because they were brothers. He was drift compatible with Jap girl because..... ? There wasn't a reason for it. Simply because they were supposed to be the love interests in the movie and needed to be put through a dire situation together. A lot of the movie's problems stem from the fact that they add this sci-fi shit but don't even attempt to explain it.
I understand that it's just supposed to be a fun movie without much depth, but that reverts me to my first point: it should have been mostly robot fighting with very little plot and character interactions. Movie probably would have been better if Jax's brother was kept alive so it could be a story of two bros taking on the world. Throw some character development in there and have one of them die towards the end, and it'd be much more meaningful. The remaining brother could have done an against-all-odds stunt and piloted Gypsy by himself to defeat the Kaiju and all that shit. That's a fun movie that I'd want to see. I think Pacific Rim just wasted a lot of screen time.
Transformers is shit because the fight scenes aren't even cool and just look like huge hunks of metal getting tangled around. Not because there's no build up.
The only good scene in Pacific Rim was with the little jap girl running away from the Kaiju.
>No Striker Eureka beating down Trespasser
>Not Gypsy vs Leatherback
>Not Gypsy vs FUCKING Otachi
>Not final assault on the breach
>Not Gypsy Jesus delivering atomic devastation to the ante-verse.
>A lot of the movie's problems stem from the fact that they add this sci-fi shit but don't even attempt to explain it.
It's lite sci-fi. It doesn't really need to. It gives you the basic reasoning and that's all you really need. I think the difference in our opinions is I was able to overlook it's flaws because I saw it as a B-movie with a budget. I really don't think Pacific Rim is the end all be all of action movies, but it had a great concept and was a love letter to anime, Godzilla, mecha, and 80s/early 90s B sci-fi movies. Or at least I felt that come through it. It was really the closest we'll ever get to seeing an anime live action movie from Hollywood.
Look, the romance isn't a bad romance. It certainly was not underdeveloped.
The two of them are focused on doing their duty and the seed of love was planted. However, they did not let the idea of romance get in the way of their duty.
I'm sure I will have to spell it out for you.
The war has ended, and the Kaiju are gone. They have been through hell, and can now mourn those that have passed and look towards the future. It is at the end of the movie that their love finally begins to blossom.
Romance & love =/= sexual intercourse and kissing
I can definitely see where you're coming from. And I really did enjoy the mecha parts. I just wish there had been more.
I never stated anything about sex and kissing. I'm saying that they just kind of "fell in love" because the plot demanded it. There was nothing really leading to it. It didn't feel real, as faggy as that sounds.
PACIFIC RIM IS THE MOST AWESOME DUMB GIANT ROBOT MOVIE WE HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME.
PACIFIC RIM IS ALSO THE DUMBEST AWESOME GIANT ROBOT MOVIE WE HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME.
SOMEHOW IT IS JUST PLAIN FUN TO WATCH AND ENJOYABLE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY.
STOP TRYING TO MAKE THINGS MORE EDGY THAN THEY NEED TO BE.
You can't just throw that word in wherever you want to make yourself seem right.
How about you go put on your edge hat, jump into your edge cannon, and fire yourself to edge land where edges grow on edgys?
Didn't think so.
>There was nothing really leading to it. It didn't feel real, as faggy as that sounds.
The entire movie led to it.
MC thinks she is hot.
She wants in his robot.
MC makes a couple passes.
Turns out they are compatible for robot wars.
Time to get into the machine.
Mission to kill kaijus
"Woah, we're alive"
They have been inside each other's minds and now know that they were both moderately interested in each other.
They now share a deep bond that no one else can understand if they were not in a robot.
That is where their love begins.
At the end of the movie.
They will probably start dating in a couple weeks.
>edge of tomorrow
the name doesn't even make sense
Too edgy for you?
>Not him, but it's pretty terrible. It's barely even an action movie. You get about 2 hours minutes of robot-monster fights in the whole movie and the other 40 hours is some retarded drama with terrible acting.
Just one volume?
Movie is going to be absolute shit, but it's still going to make millions of dollars. Good jobbu Western film market.
>literal "stop enjoying things" style autism the video
>taking that shit as legitimate criticism
How about you actually watch the movie and form an opinion with your own big boy words and ideas anon
>I found out it was James Cameron
>Now I'm really worried
But wouldn't you rather have a director who actually cares about the source material?
It's a book, anon
Book, Light Novel, same thing.
Yes. It's pretty short. Reads a bit like Starship Troopers.
minus any signs of actual intellect of course
Well yeah, there's no philosophy in it or anything of the sort. It's only about 200 pages after all.
I think Pacific Rim was incredibly mediocre, but linking Cinemasins as an argument is a joke.
They did videos on some of their favorite movies.
They're certainly not to be taken completely seriously, but they always do point out serious issues.
Where can I get the translated chapters of the manga?
Why's it called "All You Need is Kill"? That makes no sense!
>Anything outside of the actual robot fighting in that movie was hamfisted garbage.
The robot fights themselves were the biggest piece of hamfisted garbage. I left the theater thinking, how in hell is it possible to make a huge robot bashing a huge monster look so fucking dull.
All you need is Kill!
All you need is Kill!
Kill is all you need~
How does it not make sense? That's all he needs to do. Just keep killing, Until every last one of those bugs are dead.
The source material was kinda shitty to begin with. Hollywood will never adapt an anime or manga I consider sacred or untouchable, so no fucks given here.
>hollywood adapting a magical girl series
I'd like to see them try.
No I actually wouldn't, it would be the worst
What pacific rim did right was not take itself too seriously and not FREEDOM FREEDOM FREEDOM. Otherwise its pretty average. Calling it bad is harsh but calling it good is too generous
Personally I'd like to see them adapt some shoujoshit instead of the usual YA supernatural tripe. Just to see how it goes.
asking why is so shitty
It's be just like a Lifetime movie!
I know it's different but, the "hype" is the same as the Pacific Rim hype of last year. Guess what happened? Nobody cared at the end.
Pacific Rim was hyped?
With those Robot legs Tom you'll finally be tall
>criticising a big dumb Mecha movie for being a big dumb mecha movie
There are movies that set out to be artistic masterpieces that are meant for snooty intellectuals to fawn over, and PR is absolutely the opposite. It's just there to see big robots fighting big monsters.
>edge: Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill,
>AYNIK: Keiji is killed on his first sortie, but through some inexplicable phenomenon wakes up having returned to the day before the battle. This retroversal continues and he now finds himself caught in a time loop as his death and resurrection repeats time and time again. Keiji's skill as a soldier grows as he passes through each time loop in a desperate attempt to change his fat
hurrr durr it's completely different now...
Tom Cruise is actually a great actor, I enjoy many of his films.
Sucker Punch is probably the closest thing to a magical girl film.
Damn. Cruise looks like an old man.
And it was shit.
>not complaining about lack of giant axes
I'm sure that has nothing to do with him being 50 years old.
Go away Tom,
You're not fooling anybody.
Which is why him being cast in this made zero sense.
Should have been a far younger guy.
No it's not.
It was just a dumb Hollywood action movie with girls.
I did that when they announced the Jack Reacher movie. Still haven't seen it and probably never will.
Don't worry, that project will never happen.
To avoid getting your balls sued off
I'm pissed off you can hurt the aliens with pile bunker but not heavy artillery fire, are you fucking kidding me
Have you read the novel yet?
>no TSFs or waifus
No, I guess I will do just that
Is there any Rita Vritasky sex scene ?
Are there really people who sit down in a theater and spend every fucking second just looking for flaws in the math?
I notice if something is wrong, and PR's characters were too shallow for their age and position, but god damn, bitching about the death tolls n shit?
Well I got pretty hyped about Promethous, and was therefore disappointed. The issue is that Hollywood doesn't have the jew gold and tax credits that used to fund the machine. Therefore they make less movies in total. Means you have to wait 6 months for anything remotely sci-fi interesting.
