Live Action Movies
It’s Thursday once again this week lets discuss Live Action Movies and the Animated counterparts.
With “New” movies such as Disney’s Aladdin, Detective Pikachu, And the Sonic Movie coming soon to a Theatre Near you how has Hollywood got it right with live action and wrong very, very wrong. First up to bat Ghost in The Shell (2017) This movie is how you make a live action movie (not biased at all its not like Scarlett Johansson is my favorite actress.) The Cinematography in this movie mirror’s the animation of the 1995 Anime. The casted characters have the same feel and identities as the anime, this movie aligned the stars and got everything right and opened a new door for the Live action Genre of movies.
On the contrary we have the infamous Dragon Ball Evolution (2009) movie. What in the ever-loving steaming dog crap on the bottom of the shoe in the summer time with fly’s swarming you is this? (weird analogy but ok.) Who thought this was a good movie? During the Production and editing did the director just give up? Who did the casting? Why is Goku in high school? This movie makes the Avatar The last air bender movie looks like its Oscar worthy. (opinion) I have so many questions but no time to ever watch this monstrosity ever again. I remember waiting for this movie to come out only to feel disappointed like a parent who is disbelief of their kids’ behavior.
This is what Fans of the live action movies fear when they learn of an newly announced movie based on their favorite animated series. This is the reason I have yet to watch (2018) death note movie on NETFLIX even though I am a huge fan of the Anime.
So how can Hollywood save themselves from humiliation and embarrassment and make a superb movie.
Easy stay true to the main story line and cast People that will be able to breathe life into the Characters we love. This is the difference between the live action movie full metal alchemist movie and the live action air benders. Its that the finished product that had been crafted were made with die hard series fans in mind.
Hopefully the newest additions to live action movies will not disappoint (Will smith “genie” in the upcoming Aladdin I’m rooting for you please don’t let me down.) as I hold my childhood memories tight with hopes of them not being ruined.
Well that’s all for this Thursdays blog I’m trying to make these quick and write whatever comes to mind. So, if I jump off of topic in the future just enjoy the ride. Stay tuned for next Thursday’s blog. PEACE!
