There seems to be more of a push lately for adaptations



Not too hopeful about the quality of any of them though :P

Typically, anime's probably shouldn't be made into live-action films...both because they're better as cartoons most of the time, and you wouldn't want to ruin that by making a bad live action....{this is a horribly bad example, but think about the live-action Dragon Ball Z film....I got the bad feeling just watching the Trailer....oohh}

Blood's live action could be good, I don't really know, having not seen much of the anime, but the trailer looks okay. Avatar however...that should remain an Americ-anime, even if it was very successful when it came out. We'll have to wait and see...


you very much

Live action anime generally doesn't go well. Avatar will be full of fail. Though I saw the commercial for Blood yesterday, and it actually looked pretty good.

I imagine Cowboy Bebop will faceplant thanks to Mr. "I Have One Facial Expression." I mean sure, the guys got nearly teh same facial structure as Spyke... but Keneau Reeves?! Nicholas Cage could do a whole lot better...

But CB souldnt be made into an LA anyway...

Helpful! 
Has anyone seen the Death Note live action movie? Was it any good?

OOPS, turns out Anime means Cartoon in Japanese so it really isn't a Live Anime we're doing and more like a live action Movie/Show just like say...Stepbrothers, boss...
-_-

Eh, the asians have made plenty of good movies that are based on manga (which is what many anime are based on). I think it's more a matter of what chapters or storylines they choose. Oldboy was pretty awesome, even City Hunter with Jackie Chan, and I know most people here loved Battle Royale. I think it's really just about finding compitent people with an appreciation for the source.

Also, Nicholas Cage should never ever touch anything like this. He was slated for the American Oldboy remake which makes me angry, and I hear he was a terrible decision for the remake of Bangkok Dangerous. Of course I'm also biased in that I don't like Nicholas Cage because much like Keanu Reeves and Tom Cruise, he's still just Nicholas Cage is * in his movies.

I'd prefer someone like Edison Chen to play Spike Spiegel, but even then he's not ideal. Someone tall and lanky with believable athletic ability is required. Remember, Spike is essentially Bruce Lee meets Kareem Abdul Jabar, but caucasian. I'd prefer they pick a musical actor as stage show dancers often have a good combination of acting ability and physical presence and can meet the standards that a good Spike Spiegel demands. I think it's also important they cast right for that trademark curly-wave hair.
