It's over 8,000!
Jackie Chan has movies that do not focus on fights so much, but it's true that most of his movies are action movies with stunts and fights. Considering the tone of the movie, his circumstances, and who he was in general gave the audience an idea of what kind of movie it was. The thing was that it became more shocking as it progressed, but we all knew it wasn't the type of movie in which the hero fights and he prevails.

Well, I just got back from the GANTZ movie. And sadly, I have mixed feelings about it. I won't divulge into too much detail as I am very tired and have to wake up in 6 hours.
But I will say this, the Q&A afterwards (there was a livebroadcast in Hollywood that every theatre got to see), was Hilarious.
Kenichi could NOT stop talking :rofl:
I felt soooo bad for the interpretor, you can tell he was like "Stop talking!" XD

Unfortunately, Something came up so I couldnt go, but I was gonna see the premiere last night. A friend of mine went and he said the movie was pretty awesome and that he cant wait for the sequel after seeing the promo for it. He did say that the Q&A after was a bit awkward. And that he was sad that the chick wasnt there. But, damnit, I wanted to see the Nino haha. I think Angie got tickets to the actual event. Havent heard from her but I'm pretty sure she saw Nino in person. lol

Yeah I think the fight scenes were pretty awesome at some points (there was a Robot Alien they had to kill, and Imma tell you, the Robot was awesome XD).
But my complaints about the film are as follows:
-The dubbing. Now I honestly didn't mind it when I first heard about it....but they chose really weird VA's for Nino and Kenichi (heck even at the Q&A's Nino hoped next time that they use his real voice instead lol). And part of the dubbing lines that they said....were like literal translations. And that sounded reallly awkward at a lot of points in the film.
"I...care about you!" "I think.....I think I'm in love with you!" Now in japanese that may not sound so bad, but in english....yeah.
-Took a lot of scenes out from the manga. Yeah I figured they would do this anyway....but not that much. A big chunk of the fight scenes should've been a lot longer. A lot of characters never appeared.
-The characters.....now the useless ones were.......useless. And my main problem with the characters is that they never shoot the damn aliens! They just stand there and stare. Hell, one guy didnt even have a suit, shot one of the aliens and for some particular reason, couldnt shoot the exact same other one....right. Oh and then there was Nino doing his own self-monologue in front of the mirror.......which he did like 3 times and was pretty weird to watch actually.
-The Night scenes. Now of course it's suppose to be dark when they film at night, and big chunk of the battles are at night. Now when it was dark.....it was dark. I could BARELY see anything -_-. Guy I sat next to complained the same thing.

Now I heard the 2nd film will have a lot more fighting scenes, and even though they changed a lot from what I saw in the 2nd trailer in the theatre, I hoping it will be better than the first film.

I don't think I liked this film after all sadly :/

I...thought the Q/A was hilarious, didnt see any awkwardness there. I'm hoping the video pops up on youtube.

I havent read the manga or seen the anime, so I was gonna go into this pretty cold. But the trailers look awesome and from what my friend says, its pretty good. So I have high hopes for it when it gets released on dvd or subbed. Though im disappointed that it was dubbed in english instead of just subbed for the US premiere. I've seen plenty of HK movies that premiered here with subs and people were fine with it. That actually makes me a tiny bit glad i didnt see it. Cuz I really want to see it in japanese.

Wait, they broadcast the Q&A to other theaters?? Darnit, I totally would have gone to a midnight showing of it if I'd known that! :shakefist

But yeah, Angie got to go to the premiere in Hollywood. Saw Nino on the red carpet, whole deal.

Ooh! I watched it raw, but I'm definitely grabbing that. Thanks, Blue. :thumbs:

Hope you get the job! Is it a Carl's with a Green Burrito attached? Hopefully with more selection you won't get sick of the stuff as fast. I never did stop liking Chai lattes, and I worked at Starbucks for 5 years. :laugh:

Well....over here it has a Star so....


So, my japanese class was fun, made friends with the japanese volunters (one of 'em was an Arashi fan, and another friend liked Kamen Rider...though he was IN the class and korean XD).
Anyways, found out one of the girl's was my friends GF (she was showing me something on her itouch and saw his name) so I decided to surprise him and chat with him on it.......didnt know if he was joking but he said some things that pretty much accused me of and I dont like being accused of something I didnt do. But rather than continue the convo, I was tired and just gave back her itouch. You know what I said when I found out she knew him? "I've known him for 2 years, he's a really good friend". I may take that back now.

He texted me and said he was joking and apologized, whew!

It's situations like that which make me use copious numbers of smilies to make sure people know I'm joking. I might overuse them, but at least people know not to take me seriously when I do.
