Killer soundtrack, great voice acting, excellent writing, iconic animation and now a Netflix live action with John Cho as Spike.
Will it crater or rise to the skies?

i was mad bummed because the local one-screen landmark theatre showed the cowboy bebop movie at midnight two weekends ago, but i was out of town and missed it!

one year passes...

soundtracks are up on spotify finally. Where is my John Cho live action?

Maybe they decided that since the track record for anime to live action adaptations is like 80 to 1 against, this doesn't need to be made

And Netflix's last one, the Death Note adaptation, might honestly be the worst one I've seen

Vinnie, Saturday, 25 July 2020 12:35 (one year ago) link

Filming is happening in NZ; they and other productions there got the government go-ahead.

We'll see who yet joins us!

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 26 September 2021 17:30 (two months ago) link

i will of course watch this even tho i do not need it

STOCK FIST-PUMPER BRAD (BradNelson), Sunday, 26 September 2021 18:46 (two months ago) link

A good approach. (Started a rewatch of the original last night. Amazing still.)

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 26 September 2021 19:30 (two months ago) link

Oh I'll definitely watch but my hopes are soooo low for this. Reasons being 1) Netflix 2) can't help but pale in comparison to one of the best anime ever

Vinnie, Monday, 27 September 2021 11:57 (two months ago) link

Same feeling here. I'll give it a shot, of course

Nhex, Monday, 27 September 2021 13:20 (two months ago) link

It'll auto-advance to the top of my watching queue and we'll see what happens.

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 28 September 2021 00:19 (two months ago) link

i remember the anime being stylish but empty. not that i finished it.

adam t. (abanana), Tuesday, 28 September 2021 03:06 (two months ago) link

I think maybe you should have finished it

at least you admit your sin, abanana

Nhex, Tuesday, 28 September 2021 13:11 (two months ago) link

enough style can be its own substance

Jaime Pressly and America (f. hazel), Tuesday, 28 September 2021 16:20 (two months ago) link

^ That's how I'd break it down to an extent

Vinnie, Tuesday, 28 September 2021 23:26 (two months ago) link

I have a long-standing crush on John Cho, and also loved the anime, so I am very interested how they combine these two things I love.

3-2-1, let's jam.

This looks v silly and I'm here for it

feed me with your chips (zchyrs), Wednesday, 29 September 2021 12:39 (two months ago) link

recreating scenes shot by shot just makes it look like an expensive fan cosplay video

three weeks pass...

I mean, yes.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 20 October 2021 02:35 (one month ago) link

lmao, ok, that was rad

Jet's voice is dead on to the english dub btw

two weeks pass...

Aw yeah

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 16 November 2021 01:04 (two weeks ago) link

Lots of complaining online but I rather liked the first episode. Slower pace but it all works and the music is unsurprisingly on point.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 19 November 2021 23:39 (two weeks ago) link

Haven't watched yet but seen several reddit posts that look suspiciously like astroturfing

Vinnie, Saturday, 20 November 2021 03:03 (two weeks ago) link

first ep was fine but my feeling is if i was gonna watch this or rewatch the anime, why not do the latter?

When Young Sheldon began to rap (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 20 November 2021 15:44 (two weeks ago) link

clips of this I've seen are cringeworthy

akm, Saturday, 20 November 2021 16:31 (two weeks ago) link

not watching this but the whole thing just looks like a goofy community theatre sendup of the source material shot like a film school sendup of the source material

the whole thing looks weirdly clean. even if it wasn't based on a very dusty/grainy looking show it would still look too bright and HD. makes it look corny.

it's fun, mostly carried by the charisma of the principal three actors. gets too grimdark at the end, I guess that's the times. and the character who turns up in the last fives minutes is fuckin' abysmal.
