DevilMachine will love this! Voltron morphs into movie!
« on: July 26, 2005, 02:44:18 pm »
Wholy crap, I can't believe it. I used to love Voltron when I was a kid (the original series with the 5 lions, not the later series with the 15 lions). Well, it's going to be a major motion picture. Voltron!

The remake madness continues.  :o

Having never seen it, when I first heard the music, I immediately thought of Indiana Jones.  :D You have to admit, though, their songs are uncannily similar.

Mind you, he's not totally forgotten. Is it me or does the S-force's giant robot in Megas XLR look familiar?  :P

I only vaguely remember the series, with the 'robeasts'. Never cared much for the Lion-Voltron.

The other Voltron I watched was the 15 piece group (5 air, 5 sea, 5 land). They had really cool starships if I remember correctly. ;)

They either have to take this more seriously than serious or do a huge anime/80's spoof.  Otherwise I predict this will not do well.

<complaining>But I wish Hollywood would at least look towards some less likely sources for material if they're going to go into adaptation mode.  There are plenty of sci-fi and fantasy novels  out there that deserve a movie.</complaining>

Oh... wow.. that's pretty cool. It turns out I've had a yellow voltron lion action figure thingy for as long as I can remember. It was one of my favorite toys, even after 10. I had no idea it was from voltron, I had never even heard of voltron. It bent into a foot-shape and I always thought it was part of a set. All this time... heheh. :)
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

And you know.... the original Voltron series is going to be released on DVD in the (hopefully near) future... Check Amazon, they have a listing for it with a link to notify you when it's released.  I just got the Thundercats season 1 volume 1 and oh man is it just as good (and cheesy) as I remember it!  I'm really looking forward to purchasing M.A.S.K. and the Transformers volumes as well, and Voltron once it's released.  I'm sure that everyone who knows of the Transformers movie knows that it's being produced by Steven Spielburg?  To me that's a bad move.  Good director / producer / whatever, but I don't see any movie that he's involved in as being able to capture the essence of the characters and really respect them and not just be a big name attached to a picture to help bring in Spielburg fans who don't know or care about Transformers.  I really hope that I'm wrong though, as Transformers could be a phenominal movie, as I hope Voltron will be.  Now c'mon, where's my Thundercats live action movie?  Come to daddy! ;D
