Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Berserk Tattoo
« on: August 28, 2006, 10:50:49 PM »
I suggested to my friend some time ago (as a joke kinda) that he should get tattooed all over his back the scene of the hanging tree where Guts is born.  Obviously it's ridiculous but I thought it was kinda a cool idea.

How did you get into Berserk?
I was in best buy looking around for cool anime, I might have been 13, and I thought the cover art for Berserk was cool so I bought the first three dvd's.  The halfway through the first one the dvd skipped. I brought them all back the next day. About a year later I just bought the box set, watched it, loved it, had to have more and so I started buying the manga and reading the rest online. I've gotton allot of my friends into it and I'm now planning on gettinga tattoo. quick question- Has anyone else had more problems with anime dvd's specifically media blasters?

Sounds flippin sweet to me.  I like that director, the remake was one of the better  Zombie movies out there and a worthy remake, but the original still towers overall. So yea this should be cool. When is it scheduled to be released. And BTW was this battle mentioned in Sin City as well.  I'm not sure but I remember when Dwight was in the alleyway and an army of bad guys were coming for him he recapped this story about ancient warriors being outnumbered.  I could be way off but it's something like that.

I actually enjoyed the first two "Saw" movies.  I thought they were rather entertaining and I found the ending twists to be pretty interesting.  Not great movies, but with a group of friends they can be fun.

 What does IFC stand for?  I rarely watch TV these days (I'm more into movies than television) so I'm a little behind the times.
YEa with a group of friends they can be alright but their really not worth more than one or two viewings. I rarely watch tv either, I'm definitely a movie guy also, but IFC stands for the Independent Film Channel.  They play cult, pulp indie movies, uncut and uncensored.  Plus every Saturday morning they play a samurai flick. They actually went through the whole Zatoichi series. And they play that anime Samurai 7 which is alright, but at least anime is getting some airtime.

The Jet Li movie could be Fearless or Rogue? they both indeed look cool. I don't care about Hostel 2 either or saw 3 which I hope somebody was kidding about when they said they couldn't wait.  I'm not sold on transformers either.  But the documentary This Film Is not Yet Rated looks great. I've seen tons of previews for it on IFC. Does anyone watch that channel. It's pretty much all I watch.

what a strange little debate.
Why is it so hard to believe a lot of people love the retribution arc?
And the Lost Children chapter was in-fuckin-credible, imo.
Sorry if I sound like I'm debating.  I love the Retribution arc and the lost children chapters and I'm glad it's someones favorite I just thought someone said the lost children chapter was their fav. part of berserk and I thought it was strange just because of all the epicness of whats happening now and in things like the Retribution arc and such. I recall in other threads people saying you could take out the lost children chap. and the story would make perfect sense still, thats why I thought it seemed like a side story.  But trust me I don't mean to debate.

That's what people did to have SFX put on the books, so... yes?
who would do such a thing?

That does clear that up  thanks. I guess I was thinking to deeply about it.  :serpico:

Manga Mausoleum / Question about the "eve of the festival" episode
« on: August 28, 2006, 02:50:10 PM »
I don't completely understand why the apostles gathered the night before the actual eclipse ceremony. Those hawks who stayed behind weren't branded and weren't part of the ceremony.  Did the apostles just act out their own free will to kill the hawks that they knew weren't attainding the next day.  Or was it the fate of all the hawks to die so they had to go kill them, yet it was before Griffith actually said that he submits. Does anyone sort of understand what I'm getting at?

Well, volume 14-16 contains Lost Children.  But it's not THAT long, ya know. 
It's pretty high up there for a lot of people, myself included. 
O don't get me wrong I cherish every page of Berserk I'm simply saying that if I had to choose a favorite part I think the lost children arc, as great as it is, wouldn't be up there. It's more like a side story right? But I know now that he meant all the volumes from 14-23, not the lost children specifically.

I also hate the fact that the boxes appear on the artwork  I just remember being scared that they were going to edit out the original sfx and add new ones or something like that. It's still horrible how it is, I just meant that maybe I can get used to it now. DH's inconsistency is really annoying but what can we do, right an angry letter?

Volumes 14-22/23 is probably my favorite part of Berserk.  I am really hyped for the American releases and am glad Dark Horse quickened the pace a bit. 
Really, Volume 14-roughly 23 is your favorite part. Isn't that the Lost Children Arc. Not that theres anything wrong with that, I just can't believe it's your FAV section of berserk. And the new sfx do bother me a little bit, but I'm sure it's because I'm not used to them, After a couple of volumes it will be fine I think, as long as it stays off the artwork. Overall though DH is kinda putting me on the edge of my seat, especially after that "Friend" came on to the boards and told everyone their translating process, that didn't help.

I've read crime and punishment and notes from the underground by fyoder Dostoevsky and I would read pretty much anything by him.  Also anything by William Blake and I really enjoy, as sick as it may be, Brett Eastin Ellis novels, American Psycho in particular.  Also Hunter S. Thompson (rest in peace) has written the only books where I actually laughed out loud after reading. Other than that just things that I read when I was a younger, but still love, LOTR and stuff. O yea Conrad is also great as is Kurt Vonnegut.

Malkovich is Spike Jonze.
Michel Gondry's only film before Eternal Sunshine is Human Nature. And I don't think Kauffman had anything to do with Sleep.
Well Kauffmen wrote Being John Malkovich even though spike jonze directed and he also wrote Eternal Sunshine and Humane Nature. Yea he didn't have anything to do with Science of SLeep but people seemed to be grouping those guys together so I was just saying I'm a fan, if you catch my drift.

The trailer does look pretty cool.  I grew up with the Turtles so it would be a little guitly pleasure of mine to go to the movies to see it with some of my guy friends.  BUt thinking about it, I know I watched ninja turtles growing up, like on saturday mornings, but I'm 19 and I don't even think it's on tv anymore.  So who is this movie really aiming at, I'm sure I'll have fun, but my brother whose 12 couldn't even tell you their names. ...anyone kinda see what I'm getting at.

Hell, even Through a Scanner Darkly looks a little retro to me :guts:
Yeah, The Fountain has been in production hell for YEARS, thanks to Pitt's betrayal.  Slightly Green can tell you the full scoop, if he ever shows up.  Oh, and Pitt turned Aronofsky down so he could do TROY :ganishka:
I forgot about A Scanner Darkly until it was out of theaters already. Did anyone see it and what did they think? And to be honest I'm glad brad pitt left that production, it too bad it messed with the production, but I would rather not have him in it.  And The Science of sleep looks really great too. I have the other movies he's worked on, Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine, which are both great.

This sounds really cool. I'm a huge FM fan and I actually can't believe I haven't read this before.  I have lots of his old Dark Knight comics + Sin City. SO yea this looks interesting.

I've been pondering the thought of buying the anime and/or the manga for a while but I've heard such mixed reviews on it that I keep putting it off.  I'm sure I'll only get more mixed reviews by asking again if it's worth getting.  I do enjoy the great anime classics like Akira and Mononoke but i also love the B-anime stuff as I call them like Biohunter, Urotsukidoji, Twilight of the dark master, Wicked city, even Demon city sinjoku which I laugh my ass off everytime.  This might be better suited for a different thread but I'm specifically wondering aboot Bastered! So can anyone convince me.  I'm really just looking for an excuse to buy it. :guts:

Yea Pulse was horrible. It was laughable actually.  One of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. I only went cause some stupid friend dragged me with him.  On the plus side I did get in free so it's not like I wasted my money, just my time.  It's actually incredibly easy to sneak into theaters.

What do you mean the title is "a bit poor".  It's actually a tad genius. A campy title for a campy movie.  I saw it opening night and i must say it was the most fun I've ever had in a theater.  Everyone was laughing and cheering everytime Jackson killed a snake whether it be with a speargun or hairspray flame thrower.  And of course everyone sang along with Jackson's most memorable line.

Lol so sorry.  Yea I'm soo looking forward to those.  And their coming out soon! Darren Aronofsky made Pi and Requiem for a Dream and HOLLL HELLL is he making a Lone Wolf and Cub Movie????

YESSS he is. I'm a huge fan of the old ones.  I own all six of the lone wolf and cub movies.  This one is due for 2008.  Well for now I can at least see the new Scorsese film + DePalmas new one.  They both look great.

Is anyone as excited as I am about the new Tarantino+Rodriguez movie coming out 2007. Grindhouse
also sin city 2, hostel 2, killshot, and hellride are all movies connected with them one way or another and they all look awsome.  Also David Lynch's new movie Inland Empire is supposed to be released at the end of the year.  And the new Coen Bros. new movie, No Country for Old Men, sounds great. So anyone else excited bout these or are fans of these guys
