    I've yet to see the Akira Anime but lots of people I know are really excited that the Live Action Movie is having trouble surfacing.

    don't get too excited it isn't dead yet if they fix the script problems because the studio heads are having trouble with it, this could mean if the movie survies it will probably end up being much shitier

    If they do decide to make it, I hope they make it to be as good as Watchmen. Something along those lines. Real moody, real dark.

    Hollywood, you just won't learn. Sometimes, dead is better...

    Sometimes, dead is better...

    (Sorry, but I couldn't find the original scene alone. There was only this compilation.)

    I honestly don't see live action ever comparing to the anime. sure watchmen had it s charm, but its potential could have been a crapload better....

    part of the benefits of cartoons anime is that your imagination can have some level of play with what you watch. When you turn that to "live action" it will almost always fail a large majority of people due to that one thing.
