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 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 »

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.

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

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 »

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 »

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.

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 »

What the both of you fail to understand is Martial Arts is life..nothing else needs to be said.

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).

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.

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.

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.

I’m been waiting for this one. I’m going to listen to it while I have morning tea. Love the show!

…I have a feeling I’m going to be a deserting opinion though. haha
