    'Akira,' the beyond-reproach Japanese anime, plays at the Charles Theatre tonight
    Try and imagine what the inevitable live-action Hollywood remake of "Akira" will look like: directed by some Hollywood worker bee after Darren Aronofsky is fired a few days in from a script written by Guillermo del Toro; executive-produced by Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino; score by Hans Zimmer with a theme song performed by Linkin Park featuring Hayley Williams. And that's only if the studios think it could be a juggernaut with just enough critic-bait qualities to gain accolades and still become a Hollywood big-deal blockbuster. In other words, an "Akira" remake could be way worse than that. Then again, any remake would be pointless because the 1988 anime, directed by Katsuhiro Otomo, who also made the manga the film was based on, is terse, brilliant, and beyond reproach.

    Presumably, the creative itch to bring back the bygone era of sword-and-sandal epics comes about when a big-deal Hollywood director spends six weeks in post-production fussing with his latest CGI-laden blockbuster. Fed up with pixel manipulation, he...
