It's just a movie. So what if they're ruining it. I mean if you've got the old school dvd's then you can live in your own happy little world. It's not like anyones forcing you to see the new movie, right? It's just an opinion.
You realize those sacred 'episodes' you watched when you were younger were heavly chopped up and edited for U.S. family friendly audiences right? The movie follows the original Japanese series more than the U.S. series actually.
my impression of the movie at this point is that it's deceptively close to the classic series.. the movie is just more futuristic.
But who cares if it's different from the show, there's nothing really wrong with that. THe movie looks pretty sweet... and easily jusitfies all the liberties it took with the original.
by the way, I am curious to know how the movie follows the japanese series more than the american one. I guessed that the japanese version was far less violent and maybe the stories more complex.. although I'm not sure how that relates to the movie. What's the deal?
The original series wasn't a complex story. The difference I suppose is that the story actually went places rather than always being singles episodes like most cartoons of the time. For the period I'm sure it was great, but today it's just sad with a few moments of hilarity.. I mean, half the time they drew the cars ABOVE the race track. So if anyone is going to complain that the new movie ruins the series... don't. There wasn't much of a series there to begin with anyways.
And as for the movie... I just got back from it. Most of the kids in theater seemed to LOVE it. There was plenty of whooping and hollering. Personally, I actually enjoyed it. If you can remove the whole sprittle and chim chim bits and take it as entertainment, it's not nearly as bad as everyones making it out to be. You have to remember the audience is geared towards younger kids and anime aficionados too. All in all, not a bad bit.
