    Sure, but it's cooler looking than cgi because it's real.

    It seems so pointless to me, the character doesn't really look that interesting with a CGed face, rather a cheesey doll/anime hybrid and the performance almost certainly isn't going to be as good as a regular actress could have given.

    I must admit generally I don't rate Robert Rodriguez that highly as a director, he has done some decent exploitation genre films but unlike Taratino he doesn't transcend that style for me. Honestly I'm pretty shocked he ended up with a $200 million budget given that he's never worked on anything close to that previously and is pretty deep into his career.

    I wouldn't totally rule it out I spose, Waltz is almost always worth watching and Cameron is involved which normally means at least a decent script and perhaps some ideas for action sequences? maybe it might simple benefit from following the backlash Ghost in the Shell critically as well? just as an alternative the media will latch onto? Still though I think theres the potential for this to be a John Cartner level bomb.

    I hope that's not a bad sign. I desperately want this to be good.

    Let's hope they use the extended time to revert Alita's anime bug eyes back to normal.

    If the eyes are not buggy I wont see it

    Not because I like the buggy eyes but because of the stupid backlash behind them

    At this point I don't know if they could even do that, given the costs that must have been involved in doing it in the first place. As the main character that effect has got to be present in like 40%+ of the whole run-time. And considering how effects heavy everything else is it wouldn't be as simple as just removing that one thing, the entire shot would have to be re-composited.
