And holy jesus.

That was awesome.

My only comments during the movie was "So...she's like a crazy person."

I stand by it.

Have you seen it? Did you like it?

Hahahaa XP I saw that movie a loooong time ago and I had to watch it twice to fully understand what was going on. It was such a great movie and a psychological thriller. If any loved Serial Exp Lain, I'd recommend this one.

Perfect Blue is in my list of top 10 anime. It's not something I can watch over and over again, but that's good stuff right there. (And usually Exhibit A when someone says, "How can you like that anime stuff? It's for kids!")

Someone wants to make a live-action anime? Perfect Blue would be a nice place to start.

I remember watching that when I first heard about anime--it was listed in the book I read as a "must see" if you want to have some classic titles under your belt. I should watch it again!

I don't know--I think all of Satoshi Kon's stuff would make good live-action. Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress (though that would almost have to be an all-Japanese production), Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers...heck, Tokyo Godfathers was an animated remake of a John Ford/John Wayne western!

Wow, Tokyo Godfathers was a remake of a John Wayne western??? Ha! And I thought I saw all of his movies(Spent waay too much time with my grandparents XP). Was he the crossdresser? Jk.


And Paranoia Agent would be pretty spiffy to see. Quentin needs to come out with some more movies!!!

Nonono. Tarantino needs to stay away from remakes. Especially of things I like. He's remaking 'Faster Pussycat Kill Kill' and I weep.

On the topic of live action for Perfect Blue, it was meant to be a direct to video live action show. But do to damage at the studio from the 1995 Kobe Earthquake it was decided to release the show as a theatrical anime. In 2002 a live action movie was released that was closer to the book then the anime was titled Perfect Blue: Yume Nara Samete.

Nononono, it is rumored that he is doing a remake of the film. If he actually did go out and do the things that he said he would, we would have a Vega Brothers film in our collection.

I promise I'll kill him if he remakes Faster Pussycat Kill Kill. Or at least punch him.

Or a lot of other people. Tarantino is a gifted if quirky director, but he's a complete jerk in real life.

I wouldn't say gifted, but he did bring about a different way to create films. Kind of like Kevin Smith.

IMHO Tarantino's hit or miss. I hate Pulp Fiction with a passion, but I thought Reservoir Dogs was very well-done. Kill Bill was strictly tongue-in-cheek--very much a live-action anime--and superb; it was no Casablanca or Star Wars, but I enjoyed it. I thought Death Proof was good too, especially the cinematography.

On the other hand, I don't see why everyone's so gaga over Kevin Smith. I think he's a damn good comic book writer, but his movies stink. Hey, burnouts smoking weed and cursing every two seconds! I've never seen that before in a movie! :rolleyes: Maybe Smith had talent once upon a time, but his latest flicks have been nothing more than him trying to see what he can get away with, like a five-year old making poop jokes.

"And the resemblance doesn't end there"

I am with you on Reservoir Dogs, I love the film and when I met Micheal Madsen, that is all I really talked about to him. Kill Bill was basically an homage to older samurai/western films. Pulp Fiction was one of the few overrated movies I have had a problem with(#1 being Donnie Darko). Overall, I don't mind Tarintino, but I can't really take a feel towards him, especially since his latest films are copy paste of older and obscure films that the general public hasn't seen. Not going around saying Kevein Smith is better, he made his own crowd of fans who will consider him an artistic genius when it is basically the same formula of random conversation, cameo of past characters, references. Though I will say that I love Mallrats among his films and I don't understand why people and even Smith himself has bashed it.
