Heheh, that makes me laugh.

I thought the attire was nice. It looked like something you'd see described in a Fitzgerald novel. Razz

Personally I prefer the cell shading to regular 3D graphics when it comes to people.

It happens when they change something, ya know... Wink Just watch out for black cats and weird looking people with earplugs in their right ear...

Erm, yes, anyway...

I just ordered this on DVD, finally turned up on Amazon. Thought I'd grab it while I was getting the new Portishead album.

Double post for the lose...

My Appleseed: Ex Machina DVD is the 2-disc Collectors Edition. Never even realised. It's got a copy of a Shirow Appleseed Manga episode in the back too which is darn cool Very Happy

Triple post, wow I feel like a total loser now Razz

I finally got off my ass (well, only figuratively!! =0) ) and watched it and I have to say I enjoyed it a lot. It was just as shallow as the first film but hey, it was a cool action romp and had some very interesting moments.

I liked the CG style although it has a feeling of not quite knowing if it wants cell shaded or 3D. It definitely built on the previous movie's style and excellent visuals.

As a well seasoned fan of all things to do with The Matrix, I have to hold up the board and cry foul at the blatant copy that occurred towards the end. No spoilers, I just felt it was a bit blatant, even if it was appropriate Wink

Overall I'll give it a 7/10, it was a good film and the addition of Tereus to the mix did add something to what threatened to be a rewind/repeat of the first film.

I would give it an 8 Rolling Eyes Just to be different LMAO. It wasn't as good action wise as the first. I still think the first 10 minutes of the first one is one of the best opening scenes in the business.

That was one ugly dress she wore to the party Crying or Very sad I've seen brides maid dresses that looked better

I think the original was an 8/10, like you say the opening sequence of the original is a truly inspirational piece of cinema. One of the best Anime action sequences I've seen, it's right up there with Motoko's tank fight in GiTS.

The party dress was... erm... yeah not that great. The head gear was truly odd (in an entirely bad way), and the dress made her look like a school girl. I didn't mind the other Prada dress though, with the furry pockets and the outrageous hood/collar, that was quite fetching.

Heh heh... having seen it now... I'd give the first Appleseed CG anime 7/10 or 7.5/10 overall. I thought the opening sequence had a lot of energy... it was pretty dynamic but I struggle to think of a point I really latched onto like Motoko leaping out the window in her thermoptics or the doll bodies being made.


I think it was an illustration of Deunan's typical 'life' before the events of the film.

It almost crossed the line a bit on the over-hip scale for me... but I'm being a really harsh critic as usual. It was a good opening especially if you're a gun action junkie XD.


Not sure what the 'over-hip' scale is. The background music was a bit 'clubby' for my taste (I have ot confess I'm not a HUGE fan of Paul Okenfold) but it worked pretty well for me.

And... I really do say alot of silly things ^.^;. I keep reading through old posts and disagreeing with myself on things or feeling like it reads like I want to pick a fight or something ><. I don't. Perils of saying every thought out loud in public while you're growing up in order to help you grow up or something.


Awww don't beat yourself up Sylph, we all do it. I've read back on some posts I made on forums and thought I was an ass too. Just vow not to do it again and all will be well. We learn from our errors, or at least we are supposed to.
