Thanks to taisa for proofing!
And feel free to discuss the movies (though maybe warn people of spoilers before you do) since they are so awesome anyways. I love DC. xD
i've never watched the movies, but I did watch the live action movie and it was quite good except that I don't think the girl playing ran is cute enough
the live action? actually, i didn't quite like it. they say oguri shun is 'cool', but i dunno about that...and i thought the case was lame (way too easy to see through) and some of the acting wasn't quite as good...not in the sense that the actor/actresses are bad, just that the plot wasn't all that well based. but that could just be me.
well if you've watched the live actions of other manga/animes you'd probably consider this one as quite good :)
really? like which ones are you comparing to?
I Saw detective conan movies and they are good
which movie would you guys suggest?
Personally, I would suggest #6, #3 or #8. I actually love them all, so in terms of what would you like suggestions? (ie. plotline-the mystery case, or character appearances?) If you have the time, I'd suggest you watch them all! xD
okay thanks i'll check them out~
