Re: Steven Universe general

The epic hour long episode Change Your Mind sure delivered on a lot of promise. It was a bit rushed at times and did a little too much but as a longtime fan of the series I couldn’t really complain when the high points were so high and so much of the episode appeared to be animated on 1’s. It was a ...

Re: Ghostbusters (2020)

Random thought:
It’s gonna be so weird when the Ghostbusters reboot that is retconning the all female Ghostbusters movie out of existence pushes the message on the fan base that toxically attacked the previous cast & crew that “Anyone can be a Ghostbuster”.

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

^Thank you. I’m planning to catch it early next weekend. I’m looking forward to the film and if it works for me Shyamalan’s trilogy could be up there for me. I love the idea of Superhero films that are actually more about what they would be like in the real world ( probably why I don’t care for Kick...

Re: Ghostbusters (2020)

As a move for Sony it makes sense. BUT it reads to me as cheap and gross that Jason Reitman is directing. He’s an okay director. He has little directiorial vision and his best films are the ones written by Diablo Cody where he just gets out of the way of her strong scripts. His interest as a filmmak...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

I think what gets released in 2020 will be the final film. Unless they're planning something truly insane Shinji's emotional journey doesn't have places to go for three more films. Possibly it meant FINAL gets released in 2020. All four movies get slightly recut theatrical re-releases in 2021. All f...

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

Funimation's theatrical run of the new Dragonball Super movie made $7+ million yesterday. Pretty damn impressive considering in most locations it only played once or twice a day. Though in one local theater in my area they're giving the film a full on theatrical run with five to six showings every d...

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

I like that she’s more vulnerable and willing to care for & work with others. While it’s easy to read the last scene of 3.0 as Asuka just being mean to Shinji & kicking him because she can, with the body language as animated there’s a lot being expressed in that while she’s wearied she under...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

Pretty certain 3.0 & it’s intentionally aggressive tone and message showed that Anno doesn’t give a fuck about simply appeasing people with fanservice. If all Anno wanted to do was give people empty fanservice these four films would be a lot less divisive because they’d play it safer down the mi...

He's had a plan from the get go. It's the same plan he had when he made Neon Genesis Evangelion in the 90s. Yeah, this universe of giant mechas fighting kaiju from the sky in a weaponized city is awesome but in the end none of that shit matters. Lore is window dressing. This is a story about a wound...

It's especially insane when you realize Sigourney Weaver has been VERY vocal about her complete disinterest in anything to do with an the Alien & Predator crossover * since the late 80s. Whenever asked about the series her stance has always been "That's a dumb idea. I want nothing to do wit...

Re: Shane Black & Fred Dekker to make PREDATOR Sequel

It’s not clickbait if they shot the alternate ending. Which they did. Someone got paid thousands of dollars to build a pod and design a mask to cover up Ellen Ripley and Newt’s faces (because they sure weren’t getting Sigourney Weaver to come in for a wordless cameo), a stuntwoman was paid to put on...

Don’t know what the hell this is - something to do with virtual youtubers? - but according to Sakuga Blog, Hideaki Anno himself is involved in the creative aspect of this thing.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Do any of the other Eva cast members have a presence on social media?
Megumi Ogata has been the only one I know of so far who has talked about work being done on Final which leads me to believe Final is going to (rightfully so) be very Shinji focused.

Re: Box Office and Attendance

Final is probably going to surpass what 3.0 did as well. Though I think Makoto Shinkai's next film, Whethering With You , is going to have such a large audience carry over from his past film, Your Name , that it should easily set an opening day/weekend attendance record in Japan. Probably one that w...
