So whilst sitting through the loud, non-stop, eyeball popping, action-fest that is Transformers 2, it occurred to me.
If we can make a movie that can make mecha look this freakin sweet. (If you say Optimus Prime doesn’t look kick ass in this movie then you are a liar).
Why have we not yet gotten a sniff of a live action Gundam movie?
I think the ticket sales for Transformers has more than proved that my mecha whore brethren and I would more than willingly part with cash to see the metal titans battle it out against each other.
Blasphemous as it may be, I would rather shell out for a live-action Gundam movie than I would for EVA. Though I doubt even that is going to see the light of day since it seems like it will be in production hell forever.
Similarly I haven’t heard anymore on the live action FMP front, although it makes my heart giddy with happiness to think of a honest to god movie with Arbalest in it.
What would really make me happy would be to hear rumblings of a live action Macross. Think about it for a moment, just how effing amazing would that be? Keep thinking about it, see you can’t, because your brain just shuts down at the sheer enormity of just how sweet that would be.
Of course all of us fans in the States would have to cry until someone subbed it and uploaded the torrent for us, because such a movie would never see the light of day over here, even if it were to happen.
*WHOEVER OWNS THE RIGHTS DAMN WELL SORT IT OUT I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO DAMN WELL PURCHASE MACROSS FRONTIER, MACROSS 7 AND MACROSS ZERO GUNDAMMIT!*
Oh well at least we have live-action Blood The Last Vampire to look forward to.
Now how about a live-action Rurouni Kenshin…
