I ADORED the movie. And everyone I know who saw it loved it. I think it was the best incarnation of Astro Boy to date. The writers of the film tried to make him more relevant, and more human and sympathetic. And I think they succeeded. The production values were stellar. The voice acting was excelle...

I LOVED the movie. Saw it at least 4 times. Hated that it bombed at the box office - I blame Summit's publicity department for that. Everyone - and I mean everyone - I've talked into seeing it via Netflix or online has also loved it. It's an overlooked gem. I hope someday it gets the accolades it de...

Anybody here watch Kenichi?

I've just discovered this anime series (full title: "Kenichi, The Mightiest Disciple") and to my surprise I love it. It's one of the funniest animes I've ever seen (and given the oddball Japanese sense of humor - oddball to a Yank like me, anyway - that's saying something) and its central character,...

A co-worker of mine watched the movie last week. He told me "I LOVED it! I can't believe it did so badly (at the box office)."

I hear that a LOT. I'm convinced more than ever that lousy marketing killed the movie. Curse you, Summit! :mad: :mad: :mad:

Special guest in Power Puff Girls Doujinshi

There's this guy named Bleedman who does kickass doujinshis based on Billy and Mandy and the Powerpuff Girls. While some of his subject matter is a little questionable, his art is amazing. While perusing his page recently, I saw that he'd slipped in an interesting cameo: http://www.snafu-comics.com/...

Well, as I've stated here before, I think the Astro Boy movie is the best adaptation of the character and story to date. I loved it. Still do. A great deal was accomplished in it - Astro was made fully "human" and fully sympathetic for the first time IMO, he was beautifully animated, his animators/d...

Well, as I've mentioned here many times, I loved the movie. It reawakened my interest in Astro Boy, and IMO (straps on butt guts to keep the mob at bay while I run like hell) it's superior to any Astro Boy production that's come before. In his other incarnations, Astro's always left me a little cold...

Like i said earlier, the best that could happen is they bring back the '03 series If you want to see the '03 series, or the very first series, buy a Roku. It's a device that attaches your TV to the internet. I have one, and it's got Netflix and Amazon on Demand and will soon have Hulu Plus. And Net...

Guys, I'm pretty familiar with the animation business, and I can honestly say that the circumstances required for a new Astro Boy series are the following: 1) Good communication with Tezuka Productions 2) A lot of profit to be had (this is extremely important for studios) 3) Instant potential for s...
