Live action versions of Magna
This question is mostly for Daughter of Evil, but all can feel free to subit their opinions!
Daughter of Evil mentioned that Fox was going to do a live action version of Battle Angel. But how different is this than the Japanese doing live versions of their manga and animie shows? I have seen several live action versions on Japanese DVD sites I've been to (tho specific names escape me.) I have never sought out to see any of these live action movies, however. I cannot imagine how a great animie series or magna series that takes up 13 parts or so could be better in a two hour movie? It's not something I ever had a desire to see done, but how can you fault Fox for trying to do what Japan has done for years with their magna stories?
