It's not a contest. Nor are artistic boundaries as black and white as those on maps.
Give me writing and acting over FX any day of the year. Hang a story on people, not costumes with speaking roles.
And I'm sorry but the costuming in that live action movie reminds me of MST3K's Invasion of the Neptune Men.
Other people can do whatever they want. If it were me I would stop designing for 1950's children.
Oh, and I have watched enough media from around the world to be able to say "God bless Marlon Brando." But then again I appreciate cultural influences and don't pretend it's the same everywhere.
