Maybe they intend for their comments to mean that they're afraid that bad features would negatively impact the anime community by giving non-anime enthusiasts the wrong impression about the bulk of anime? *shrug* Iunno, just a guess...
Or they could just mean that, although they aren't being forced to watch it, the mere thought of something potentially horrendous being loosed upon the world sickens them? I'm not particularly affected by many of the unpleasantries of the outside world, but I still cringe at the thought of some of them. A rather extreme comparison, especially just for a movie, but that could explain that sort of comment.
My question was rhetorical (blame my poor phrasing), but thank you for pointing out a couple of reasons nevertheless. While both of your reasons are probably two reasons why, the fact is that I find them both weak in general terms, thus they make no sense to me in that respect. If you don't think you are going to like the movie, don't see it. Don't go around saying how it should never be made because you yourself wont enjoy it so thus it is a piece of crap and should never see the light of day. It is a rather egocentric way to look at it. I can see the negative impact to the anime community more-so than the other, but I still find it a weak reason for not wanting them to make a live action movie. It's not like DBZ wasn't shown in the US already, or that it has anything objectionable in it. (I know these aren't your personal points, I am just responding to the points, it isn't directed at you personally).
And a huge budget doesn't necessarily mean that the movie will look ok. Yeah, people have done more with less, but the reverse is true too.
I wasn't trying to say that a huge budget would inherently make it look good.. I was simply saying that since a movie with a much lower budget, which has similar special effects as the DBZ movie would have, one could reason that they will be able to pull off the special effects and not have them look crappy. I never said this will happen, just that it could work. There also seems to be another misconception here, I do not think the movie is going to be good, I hope it is going to be good. They are going to have to do things correctly for it to end up good, but it is do-able because they (hopefully) have a large enough budget to work with.The Adict
It is being made by 20th Century Fox which bought the rights to a live action DBZ movie in 2002. Thus, it is being made for us in the first place. (Though, take that as you may).
OH MY GOD, PLEASE TELL ME IT NOT TRUE, its a joke!!!! Laughing Laughing
I'm glad to hear that
