Anyone Disappointed. . .

That Mr. Davis is not going to review any of the anime video game films for TANG? 
 
 He stated in the BombCast that he isn't going to review the anime films for TANG. I know TANG has ended, but when it returns in 2010 (Maybe), he'll just review the live action and CG stuff only. 
 
I don't like Pokemon as a anime, but I'll admit, I was curious to see how Mr. Davis is going to handle watching a Pokemon movie and giving a review for it. It'd be one interesting thing to watch. 
 
What are your thoughts?

Mr.Davis review all the shitty Uwe Boll films. Why not review the possibly shitty Pokemon films?

While it would be funny hearing Ryan's commentary on the truly outlandish Tekken anime movie (Heihachi catches a tomahawk in his mouth and crushes the blade with his teeth!), I can understand his point.  There is a lot, and I mean a lot, of anime based on video games, much of which is incredibly obscure.

Anime in general is a whole different device.  Trying to criticize those in the same way as you criticize live action and CG movies is not even in the same kind of league.  Then again, look at Ponyo.

Nope, not disappointed.
 
Anime isn't terrible in a way that makes TANG interesting.
 
There's that Live-Action quality that just merges well with hilarious mediocrity.

Someone told me it's the other way around.

The Pokemon films are aimed squarely at children.  The general plotting and character development don't need to follow the same standards that something meant for older audiences should aspire to.

HEY! What are you calling shitty!? I only seen the first like 3 or 4 movies but from what I remember they were pretty badass.

I said possibly shitty. I saw the first one, I didn't like it.

Yes, but that's a CG film.

Yes, yes he did.

I was hoping he would review anime too. If I recall correctly, a Dead Space anime was released some time ago. Also, now that the Halo anime was announced, you'd think it would be a no brainer to review that when it's released.

Meh. There are good adaptations to anime, and since Ryan probably doesn't like anime and TANG is geared toward bad movies, I doubt the reviews would be truthful.
 
Someone reviewing something they don't like before even trying it is always a bad idea. That's like if I went and watched a Saw movie with the intent to review it knowing full well I hate Saw.

I don't think his hatred for anime is as bad as Jeff's. Mr. Davis admits to not liking Uwe Boll's films but at the end, he admits to saying that he's getting better at film making.

Well, I don't know whether he does or not. That's why I said "probably doesn't like anime", I'm just assuming he doesn't. Hey, if he decides to do the animated movies, too, then that's great, but if not then that's fine, too. I guess what I mean to say is I don't really care either way.

Since when are we referring to him as "Mr. Davis?"  That's way to weird for me.  I like to refer to him as "Sweet Cheeks" or "My Lord", but I guess I'm just casual like that.

Obscure? You mean I won't see my episode of TANG about the Sin movie?

This.  I just like Giant bomb generated content.  Mostly, the videos of them in the office.  I just hope, season 2?  Isn't to far off.  If we have to wait till next spring/summer...

I agree with Jakob on this one. Also if Ryan doesn't want to do it, it's best he doesn't, I don't think TANG would be as special if Ryan was so half-hearted about working on what he was doing.
