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...

Re: Shane Black & Fred Dekker to make PREDATOR Sequel

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...

Virtual-San Looking (Hideaki Anno)

Re: Shin Eva - Official 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...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

They better have something special planned for Godzilla Vs.

I anticipate they will have to turn to ALIENS to up the ante! Also, the last Godzilla ...

Re: Men in Black franchise!

My two cents - It’s a series that is so serviceable and never exceeds the status of getting-the-job-done and is really not deserving of an entire thread. The first movie is enjoyable for what it is, the second is garbage, the cartoon is supririsingly solid from what I remember, the third movie is pr...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

Can't argue with Gen Fukunaga's viewpoint on Netflix getting Eva. It's an easy target to mock his opinion because of where he's coming from as the president of a company that would have had the rights to Eva if they weren't so astronomically high. Eva is just another piece of content in Netflix's ne...

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

If there was a time to drastically change up the style & aesthetic of Evangelion it would have been back in 2007 with You Are (Not) Alone . That was the time & opportunity for Anno & Co to switch things up and go all CG or whatever since it was essentially a brand new start. They didn't....

Bumblebee is not a Michael Bay movie. It’s actually good. Surprisingly so. The action is coherent and really thrilling.

The last Marvel movie to have taken any general risks was Iron Man Three. It also is one of the few Marvel movies to have a bit of a real personality. It's of course hated by a majority of the fanbase because it doesn't pander to the fans. Infinity War is 150 minutes of pure pandering. They took 10 ...
