    I have never seen Akira and don't know what it's about

    But I love Chronicle

    And I've heard people say that the ending of that movie is very Akira-like

    You could say that Chronicle is a western, live-action, found footage version of Akira I guess

    they don't explore exactly the same themes and Akira is better, to my mind (the film is superior, the manga is even more so)

    but there are similarities

    and I agree Chronicle was a great movie. Max Landis seems to be a bit of an idiot but he writes a good screenplay.

    I liked Chronicle, but
    it really annoyed me that they chose the least interesting of the three to be the hero.

    i found it really disturbing when
    old seth started falling to pieces
    I was going with the whole everytime there's a change in the past it makes a different future timeline and we're just seeing one of them (the one with the story they want to tell) so in my head each cut would mean there was a different version of seth that lived his life missing x amount of body parts.
    Also thought when they first mentioned the rainmaker that it was someone who figured out how to go back and forth in time, that's why he could work on his own to take over the syndicates. Was picturing a scene with basically one of the big mobsters being heavily guarded then "poof" he just disapears because the rainmaker went back in time and killed him when he was a little kid or something.
    The real story in the movie was great though, and that whole money laundering theory earlier in the thread is great too

    neither Looper nor Chronicle are much like Akira at all

    why do people think that anything with
    a psychic kid
    is like Akira

    Okay so

    I'm not gonna lie

    That looks fucking amazing and I love that it seemed to contain actual sentimentality instead of buckets of snark

    Those are always the best parts about RDJ as Iron Man

    Dang that trailer.

    What gets me excited is there will be some dire straits and actual sentiment unlike iron man 2 which was just an endless stream of snark.

    Tony Snark?

    i was a bit disturbed by how they made jospeh gordon levit look like bruce willis, but the awesomeness of the movie made the weirdness moot. though i do think its funny that based on how much screen time JGL got compaired to bruce willis, why they didnt just make bruce willis look like JGL

    I don't always vorpal blade, but when i do it goes snicker-snack.

    possibly it's harder to do complex makeup on an old person's face

    possibly because Bruce Willis is a bigger name than Joseph Gordon-Levitt
