KITE Live Action Film


DeathscytheX

I've never seen Kite, two of them are on netflix now I assume because of this project... I wont watch them however, because the customer reviews claim they are heavily edited.

I've seen the original Kite and Kite Liberator (new main character that takes place after first OVA). Honestly you're not really missing much by not seeing them. Kinda meh in my opinion. The version of the Kite OVA on Netflix is the completely edited version that cuts out all sex scenes and most of the extremely violent acts that take place in the show (there are three versions of the original OVA). The only real thing you miss, story wise, is her motivation for doing what she does at the end of the OVA which honestly really isn't much. Your choice if you want to actually watch it but I'd say don't waste your time.

 

Outside of the curiosity thats being piqued by how true they'll stay to the source material I have no real need or want to watch the live-action adaptation when it comes out (plus it's an American adaptation, anything and everything that's deemed bad for American morals will be but out). Plus after watching the first two minutes of the trailer it looks rather horrible.

Kite was an interesting anime for me when I first watched it, mostly because of the amount of violence in it. Considering how young I was when I first watched it, it really made me realize how drastically different anime can be compared to US cartoons. Aside from that, I wasn't a big fan of the anime. I watched it maybe twice? This movie seems like it will fail to me. Like Eppy said, its a mostly action movie.. but the trailer showed more talk than action.. ehh. Maybe if they had whatsherface that plays Hit Girl in it, then I'd probably watch it.

 

I'm surprised Kite is being made into a movie.. if hollywood wants to make old animes into movies, I hope they make Vampire Hunter D next. :P

 

Dragonball Evolution was a horrible movie. I watched it just so I could see how bad it was made.. oh man.. it ranks up there with Super Mario Brothers in terms of how off mark all the characters and plot was compared to the source material.

Well Neon Genesis Evangelion is still floating out there, and Akira is being made. NGE won't come close to the source material if they tried to make it.

 

I don't know what you're talking about. Super Mario Bros is a cinematic masterpiece. XD XD XD

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      IFC had a Three Stooges marathon on Thanksgiving. After we ate, we watched that the rest of the day. I haven't laughed that hard for that long in a long time. Good stuff.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.
