Alita - battle angel

Recommended Posts

Saw this today , rather funky 

 

Pinocchio meets  blade runner, Frankenstein meets ghost in the shell meets AI. Add a dash of Elysium. A pinch of roller ball. 

 

Good story that keep you going , perhaps  could  have done with some editing to trim some unnesscary bits but generally flows well. 

 

Good acting from from the main star and Christopher walz. 

 

Has some of the best effects I've seen in a ( obviously sci-fi) movie, it's easy to get jaded with cgi, but this one is good.  I'm tempted to see it again in 3D 

 

teeny caution - it idoes get somewhat violent mitigated by the fact that it's mostly cyborg against cyborg, but just letting you  know.

I am planning to watch this in 3d coming Monday. Have heard that 3D is done right on this one.

Avatar is imho still the best implementation of 3D in a film. As a constant immersion rather than a in your face gimmick. 

 

Having said tbat, it’s has been a fair while since I saw a 3D movie.

I don't know why I've neglected these threads for two years.

 

I'm a huge Christoph Waltz fanboy.

 

Thanks for the heads up on this one.

This is definitely on my list despite Rotten Tomatoes having it below 60% at 6/10.

The audience rating is 92% at 9/10.😁

Saw Muke a few weeks back and they showed the trailers. OMG my wife hates sci-fi but she said she would go and see it. I’d like to for sure.

 

About Mule. It’s a Clint Eastwood swan song. You will never see him play the main roll in another movie ever again. It was a Yentl but enjoyable.

Speaking of 'swan song', that is the song from the Alita soundtrack

Saw it at Imax Mel yesterday - thought it was good, very watchable, good fun great in 3D outstanding effects.... but it's imax!.

Familiar faces some tricky to spot in their cyborg get up - was that lawnmower man with some cyborg dogs?. Christopher always good especially getting a swastika carved on his forehead...but he's a good guy in this :)

I quite enjoyed this - ending was a bit of an anti-climax but as has been noted it is set up for sequels.

Just finished it and really enjoyed it. Gorgeous looking movie.....had the same feel as Ready Player One...3D was just OK. A couple of good effects but nothing special. Must buy 4K when It gets a release.
Cheers

That's so different to back in the 70's where you could hardly find a decent seat in a crowded theatre, amazing those places survive.

 

Watched the trailer and it appeals :)

Did the Alita challenge today and watch the movie at the cinema. It was really good and definitely worth a second viewing. 👍

Just finished watching on DVD with the big speakers cranked, recliner in the sweet spot. 

Loved it. 

 

As mentioned in an earlier post I will watch anything with Christoph Waltz.  Loved The Zero Theorem too, and Water for Elephants, etc, etc.

 

Next up for me on total chillax day is Mortal Engines.

 

Cheers, Ant.

Watched it yesterday on 4k bluray. Very impressive. Great movie for people who like that type of movies. A little bit similar to Ready Player One.

I thought this was excellent, until the thrills that were well-built came to almost nothing in the conclusion.😞

 

Did it get set up like that so the follow-up is required?

From watching the extras on the DVD, I think it will depend on how financially successful it is. 

There are nine books in the original Manga story by Japanese artist and creator Yukito Kishiro, and he's now up to nineteen books.

 

Plenty of material to draw from there.  Let's hope they continue.  It was perfectly set up for another movie I thought.

I really enjoyed this one on Bluray. Great sound mix and nice to have the main character with a bit of a positive vibe going on, felt different from the typical Hollywood bleakness.

The first time the Centurion appears in the market place is a demo worthy scene for sure, with the subs tearing the room apart!

Ending felt like they ran out of cash and said 'well that's all folks' but if it's simply a set up for sequel(s) i'm all in :)
