I am surprised there has been no discussion on Warner Bros' "The Iron Giant"
which opened about 2 weeks ago. It's an animated feature starring a big
robot, and no one on the GML even mentions it...

The fact that it tanked at the box office did not help either, because if an
homemade animated mecha flick bombed here, how are we to expect a live
action Gundam flick do well in the U.S.?

Onto a slightly related topic... not too long ago everyone came to
Jake Llyod's (a.k.a. Anakin Skywalker) defense when I complained how
awful his acting was. "Ah come on, give him a break, he's just a kid."
You better check out Haley Joel Osment's acting in The Sixth Sense.
This kid is only a year older and his acting was light years beyond
young Darth Vader. Too bad Lucas did not cast Osment as young Anakin
instead.
