What? No, the ones from Dredd, or at least the original Judge Dredd (I havnt seen the new one yet) Looked like Power Ranger bikes or something. That one up there is from an old anime film, Akira. You should see it.


Yeah, the red bike you posted was similar to the bike in the new Dredd movie, except the color and the wheels were different. They had spokes, IIRC. Otherwise, it was the same.

The last bike BP posted was from a movie called Akira. That movie was nuts!

It's been more than 10 years since both AIDS and Akira, so it's funny now.

I'll let Cracked say it for me:

[...]you have to admit that it is, indeed, a pretty **** up thing to be Japanese. You're confined to an isolated island for the vast majority of your cultural development - an island regularly beset by massive earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and typhoons - and when you eventually do emerge from your isolation, you become the only society to ever have nuclear weaponry deployed against them. Consider all of those factors, and then watch one of those tsunami videos; it's easy to see why so many of their movies seem to think of cities as "those things that just go away sometimes." Akira's imagery relies heavily on this concept of civilization as an impermanent thing: Cities are fragile beings in the movie. They can, and frequently do, dissolve away into nothing right before the character's eyes.


Tetsuo and Kaneda are both fifteen years old in Akira, and they're already members of a brutal motorcycle gang. That was, and to some extent still is, a real concern in Japan: They're called Bosozoku gangs, and don't let their hilarious cartoon vehicles fool you: In the late '80s, violent teenage motorcycle gangs were right at the top of the media scare list in Japan, kind of like Muslims and terrorism are in the US today. The age of the characters is key in Akira, both in tying the main characters to the phobias of that culture, and also in dealing with all of the teenage emotional mainstays: Sex, hormones, and puberty. And Akira is very much about puberty. The finale of the movie has one of Tetsuo's limbs engorging, growing out of control, and engulfing his girlfriend; it's not exactly shooting for subtlety.


tl;dr version: It's about being a screwed up hormonal teenager in a screwed up perpetually doomed civilization.

AKIRA - also possessor of best end credit music ever.

Something else to ponder, Akira came out about 1 year after Transformers: The Movie. But the animation is leaps ahead of it. And TF: The Movie was pretty good in its own right.

Or- In short, you say evolution. The core of Akira lies in change (HAHA TRANSFORMERS), as best described in the movie itself. Remember the Amoeba-speech, there's your 'about'.

Effing great flick.

I wouldn't have to be seduced with fries. It really depends on what she looks like. But fries is a nice bonus.

Good advice; Whenever you decide to post something, type it in the 'reply' box and then read it aloud. Adjust if needed.
