Re: Nausicaa - Hideaki Anno Commentary

The special features are great! The commentary by Anno & Assistant Director Kazuyoshi Katayama is a delight. Anno basically watches the film & happily comments visually what works in the movie, what he would like to change - shorten a shot here, expand here, stuff that bugs a true filmmaker ...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Hmm.
Interesting.
So Anime Godzilla Part 2 comes out May 2018 huh?
That sure looks like a MechaGodzilla.

(I guess first responses to the Anime Godzilla movie should be online & will get translated in the next few days)

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Why is anime so bad but Nichijou so good? Can't stop re-watching this show.

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Almost no one wants to see that, plenty of people want to see semi sexy amazons. Output is unequal because demand is unequal. And besides that male bodies being more blocky & flat then females don't lend themselves to being in skimpy designs, it just looks awkwardly slapped on while with female...

Re: [Film] Alita: Battle Angel

Only heard bad things about the movie. Rumors of something close to 95% of it has been shot against a green screen in a warehouse in Austin & being very camp. I'm figuring it will feel like a "gritty Spy Kids" movie. I'll never forget the disappointment of my friend showing off some of...

The dude wants out. You don't talk about a "cool way to segue out" unless you've already got one foot out the door:

I've got high hopes for Aquaman as well. And I have zero knowledge of the character outside of the obvious jokes - he talks to fish who have nothing interesting to say & James Cameron directed the original Vince Chase version. James Wan has grown into a fine commercial director. Both of the two ...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

Correct. No one has denied Anno is retelling the story of Eva. That's a given. He's retelling the story in a new form after over a decade's worth of new life experiences and from a very different mindset. But, you have been adamant in your absolute (and flawed) belief that Rebuild is replacing NGE w...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Critics are being allowed to express opinions on Twitter. No reviews for a while thought I think. Consensus seems to be the movie is actually fun. Has a lot of issues - story is a complete mess, the villain is an absolute bore, the reshoots are glaringly obvious - BUT it mostly works because the cas...

Also one of the only movies to properly get 3D. Sooooo of course it was a financial failure. Such is life. Went on a date to see Thor ...

Re: Blade Runner franchise

Honestly the key reason Blade Runner 2049 disappointed is the budget. There's little to no reason why the movie should have cost $150 million. I felt the marketing campaign was superb - perhaps they went after the wrong crowds because I felt the marketing for the film was ubiquitous & nonstop wh...

Disney's attempt to buy Fox is not happening (they want the AVATAR sequels). Talks fell through. Which is for the best. Monopolies are bad for business AND worse for consumers. Any small gains in "Oh joy, we get to see a weightless CG Wolverine have a weightless CG fight with Hulk" will qu...
