Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution .aka Miyamoto: the Dream is Dead Evolution.
I'm hoping the dub just retains the Japanese score if anything, though I'd prefer reusing movie 1's dub stuff over Ed Goldfarb's usual pap.So the movie is pretty much the same and some cultural references were made more generic. But I still felt some nostalgia reading through Pokebeach's article. Is it bad that I want some of the dub score to return?
However, I still have my doubts if the movie was worth it as it seems it doesn't have anything new to say. It feels like we're having a gap year in movies, and very long gap year as we've known the title and the basic details since last July. Its resources could have gone to something more creative.
It is one of the few movies that had something to say to begin with. With Shudo being dead, there was only so much they could have added to the script. And you just know that heavier changes probably wouldn't have been good, be they about Armored Mewtwo, a random mythical or Dynamax.However, I still have my doubts if the movie was worth it as it seems it doesn't have anything new to say.
I'm trying to understand OLM's point of view here, so those examples don't quite count. At the end of the day, Shudo only had a chance to flesh out Mewtwo's backstory in the radio drama, presumably because OLM didn't want too much sadness right at the start of a dark prologue. The home release is a different story because it's for people who want to delve more into the movie. Hopefully history will repeat itself.“Finding Nemo” and “Up” start rather tragically, if they count as examples. And those are movies for children.
It's already been confirmed that TPCi is releasing a dub of this movie using the current dub actors.If an English dub is possible, recycle the 4Kids dub audio from both the original dub and the Uncut Story DVD extra and call it a day (unless lawsuits happen) or create a new dub (It's possible they may have got the rights to the songs cleared up while purchasing them from Warner). If the later, we could see Polite Mewtwo in English or due to the Genesent controversy, retain Evil Mewtwo.
Just because Mewtwo didn't have a conscious memory of them doesn't mean that the event didn't shape his demeanor. It explains perfectly why he killed Dr. Fuji, because he had previously told him that Ambertwo was disposable. That kind of thing doesn't just go away.
I dunno maybe it's just me but I've always found the first Pokemon movie's death scene to be really overrated. Like, it involved four rather underdeveloped lab experiments dying and in the end their deaths didn't even play a part in the main plot of the movie since Mewtwo just kinda forgot about them. At least the deaths in those two Pixar masterpieces played a part in influencing the main characters of those movies.
