Years after his death Bob Ross’s painting show somehow manages to have a continued following thanks to the internet. (Admittedly I didn’t watch the show. I’m more into drawing than painting.) And now fans will have a chance to see some of his work in person at an exhibition in Virginia.
The Cartoon Cypher recently put out a great editorial about the ongoing anime debate between supporters of subtitles and people who prefer the dub. However, because I tend to reach out to casual as well as diehard fans of the works I review and discuss I want to build up to it with a few other editorials that I think frame the dub perspective perfectly. And looking at the dub for Cowboy Bebop is a great place to start.
Even if you aren’t part of the anime fandom I’m willing to bet many of you out there have at least heard about this show. The series follows a group of space bounty hunters who come together through a shared sense of brokeness, eventually going their own way once they found a part of themselves that they lost. Or for Edward, because it was a Saturday in July or something. She’s fun. While sub-only purists may discount this, the Cypher team goes over why the dub works so well and why it’s airing on Toonami drew so many who find it easier in dub to anime.

I want to make one thing perfectly clear to anyone rushing to this movie’s defense or my interpretation of MatPat’s latest Film Theory episode about Todd Philips’ Joker movie. I am NOT talking about the quality of the movie. It could well be a good movie. This is about the quality of the ADAPTATION, although they have said that they are ignoring the comic. This leads me to the question that is at the heart of my problem with this movie: WHY did it have to be Joker? Is there any reason to make a Joker movie that ignores the source material other than the popularity of the name hopefully bringing in viewers? My answer is no, and this latest episode proves it.
In this episode, MatPat is actually looking forward to this movie, so every negative comment to follow is mine alone. He showcases just what this “Joker” origin story is actually doing, and while it may offer a slight defense the rest of it highlights this question of why it’s a Joker movie when it might have been better off being it’s own character except for the name. It starts with mental illness and ends with the idea being stolen from another work, which is appropriate for Joker admittedly. I’ll also get into why this bothers me so much.
Admittedly I haven’t seen Megazone 23 (pronounced “2 3” not “23”) nor do I own a blu-ray player. However, for Robotech fans this movie is rather important.
This is the movie reworked into Robotech: The Movie, which I’ll be getting to both in video and in comic adaptation reviews when we get there. (With The Sentinels it’s going to be a long wait.) So promoting this movie gives a new opening of awareness of Robotech, although it also opens up to the anime purist critics of the franchise. Still, if you want to back this here’s the link.
