Eliza is Guile’s sister in law. Guile is married to her sister Julia.

Saw this one a couple of times, but count me as one of those people who prefer the Van Damme movie.

You need to watch the version with swearing in, because it’s hilarious and was one of the reasons why I got grounded for watching it when I was young.

I’m so glad Conrad mentioned Perfect Blue. Satoshi Kon was a genius. All of his movies were pure art.

If the lack of trivia continues I’ll have to listen to these with a friend hiding in another room armed with a klaxon and random, quite possibly barely related facts about the film in question.

I’ve been waiting for the IMFDB to make a reappearance since they promised it would be a recurring feature.

They have not yet implemented it.

They might be hampered if they start covering more of the Pokemon films.

I love this podcast.

It was nice to hear other people who agree with me about anime. I just can’t get into it. I love Fullmetal Alchemist, but every other series I’ve been either completely indifferent to or I’ve actively disliked it. I’ve tried to get into the genre a lot, and I just can’t.

This has to be first time i cannot agree with the ending statements. Even with Prince of Persia, a movie i genuinely enjoyed; I still agreed with the overall sentiment. In this case, I’m the opposite; I absolutely can’t stand to ever watch the live-action adaptation again. Maybe it is because i’m more of a hardcore fan of the series despite not being especially good at the games? I give my respects to Raul Julia, but that take on teh series just gets me pissed off, and i’m glad to never have to watch it again. This film though? i’ve… Read more »

Martial Arts vs Firearms. Lol

This is I think the first of the Movie Boys where I hadn’t already seen the film. I guess I should watch this one now, since I am a sad, sad completionist.

I watched this for the first time along with the podcast and you really hit the nail on the head for me. Nothing about it was bad, the animation was great and I can’t imagine anything else I would ant in a Street Fighter Movie. But…. given the option I would still rather watch the live action version. It was dumber, but still more memorable (even if it’s for the wrong reasons). My biggest disappointment was Bison himself. His design was spot on and I liked his voice actor, but he had NO memorable lines. Like you guys said: I… Read more »

Before I watch this I’ll just throw out a “Fuck You” in advance for nitpicking one of my favourite childhood movies.

The echo is because Jim recorded it in his gigantic palace.

to be fair to the martial arts plan, street fighter is a series where being good at martial arts lets you shoot fireballs from your hands, take machinegun fire to the face, and, in cases like Akuma, blow up mountains and sink countries

I mean, if he tried it in our world it’d fail epicly, but he lives in a rediclousnouss enough world for it to work 😀 it’s like a superhero verse with less interesting costumes

I’d pay good money to see Batman with Guile’s hair.

So maybe I won’t be as much a dissenter as I thought! lol I’ve watched this move 3 times including a rewatch for the show. I have to say that the pointlessness of a lot of the scenes and characters annoyed me. That said, in and of itself, it’s not unenjoyable and the fights were cool especially the Vega & Chun-le one. However… I started to hate the movie when I remembered a lot of the other films and TV that had been made and or released at around the same time or even earlier. Examples like Akira, Ninja Scroll,… Read more »

Let’s be honest here, most of the characters are in the film to be in the film. Whoever your favourite character is they’re going to be on screen, not completely off model, and are going to use their signature moves. Job done.

I’ve heard the people use the “cultural differences” to explain a disliking of anime before, but I’m not sure I can agree with that idea. The actual sets of people I’ve met that liked and disliked anime should, if that’s what’s going on, also have cultural similarities too, but I’ve seen just the opposite. In most cases I’ve seen it seems to depend on what types of people said groups are irritated by and what types of comedy they prefer. That said, the idea of recommending entertainment to people on the internet without at least hanging out with them a… Read more »

I find most anime just… stupid. So much about it is just ridiculous. And not in a good way. It’s just flashy and overdone and the plot is pretty sketchy a lot of the time. And the meaningless fanservice. And the generic characters.

But that’s just me. It’s important to remember I internalized anime as being “that greasy stuff those weird kids watch” in Highschool and only through sheer force of will have I tried to ease off it and try the recommendations friends have given me.

So yknow. Take opinion with a grain of salt.

Your chat on how you discovered and experienced Manga during the 90’s were scarily similar to mine, including the odd instant drop in interest. I too have tried to re-ignite the spark but the anime tropes seem to keep me at bay. SF2 The animated movie was a teenage favorite of mine. Loved this episode and felt genuine nostalgia during the introduction.

George
Member

Agreed! I like anime and watch a fair bit of it but…the tropes drive me nuts and I hate “fan service.” Ironically the ones that are the best are the ones the either dive straight into those tropes and never leave (Silver Spoon) or the ones that forgo them entirely (Shigurui).

But…Martial arts really DOES solve everything. Once, I was going to fail a maths exam terribly, I martial artisted the tutor and my grade magically got better. Another time this tourist said he didn’t have any spare change on him for my next fix, I martial artisted him and he suddenly remembered he had extra spare change for me and a watch and a child too! Another time this old lady needed help crossing the street, I was in such a huge rush for my martial artisting class I didn’t have time to manually cross with her martial artisting every… Read more »

Hoo boy, Max Payne next time? That should be a fun one, I’ll have to see it. It’s one of those video game movies I really wanted to watch but never got around to.

SF2 sounds batshit insane, I kind of wish I had watched this as well (this is like the 3rd time I hadn’t watched the movie ahead of time, but still mighty entertaining).

I started watching it and honestly can’t recall why I gave up. Possibly boredom

No mention how the Super Mario Brothers movie got a steelbook release after your podcast?

I’m not saying Jim was the reason for that happening but I’m not denying the possibility.

I’m hoping there’s a quote on the box from Hoskins stating I went through six bottles a day to get through this.

Jim, if you’re “just” watching someone get beaten to death, and if you do nothing else afterwards, that is a crime. You failed to perform your civil duties by reporting crimes to police.

Unless, if that statement was a joke.

Laws concerning such situations vary from place to place, as do laws protecting individuals from lawsuits if they attempt to help someone in distress. Can you see the problem?

YoDude
Guest

That’s true. Doesn’t Muricka have no legal protections for good Samaritans? For instance I know in Canada if you injury someone while removing them from say a car wreck and it’s proven to be accidental and a “legal” response you are protected from being sued by the victim if the wreck.

As I said, it varies. Some states do, and others don’t.

Ha! I’ve got a friend who makes an effort to watch/play/listen to a massive number of new things every year, and Cowboy Bebop had its turn recently. How he managed to go this long without watching it I don’t know, but that’s neither here nor there.

Last week, he told me he was about halfway through, and he hated it.

Nitrium

Hopefully you have also seen (or on your short list to see), Steins;Gate, Code Geass, Darker than Black, Death Note, Elfen Lied, both Full Metal Alchemists, Last Exile, Monster, Tokyo Ghoul.

BAH!

I only needed to see the first FMA, read some of the Death Note manga (didn’t like it), and the rest simply don’t interest me. But none of those are anywhere near as famous as Cowboy Bebop, which I first saw on Adult Swim when I was a teen. The point is not that it’s good, but that (not counting DBZ, which is utterly awful) it’s the one anime that *everyone* knows.

drownedsummer

I’ve still not seen it. I have seen Samurai Champloo though.

BAH!

So maybe you can tell me how one manages to go so long without proper exposure to one of the best anime of all time?

Samurai Champloo is also great.

Just not remembering to do so.

I’m house sitting next month and that will involve playing Mass Effect 2 and binging several series on Netflix & Amazon.

The Bison’s voice acting. If I wasn’t his fanboy already for beating the s**t outta my friends in the game itself with him, this movie cemented that.
