Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

They even finally took down Anno's over two-year-old letter about how he's going to take a break to make Shin Godzilla.

Re: Evangelion's site updated with new image - First tease of Shin Eva?

Actually a nerdy shoutout to a line Ken Watanabe delivers in INCEPTION. But, yes. This is VERY good news. News for the final film might not be regularly occurring - would be pleasantly surprised if we hear anything else before the end of 2017 - but I think we're finally past the point of "No ne...

Normal people: It'll probably be a full year. Fuck!

Me: I've been here for these films since I was a young lad in 2006. Now that I'm an old man filled with regret a year is like tomorrow.

Re: Will Eva become dated, or will it become more relevant with time?

Nah, as you stated, the emotional honesty & frank handling of what it means to feel isolated is too pure for the show to ever really feel dated. Works that are emotionally genuine usually tend to stand the test of time. Empathy transcends all lengths of time. Until all people on Earth learn how ...

Re: Netflix's Death Note Live Action Adaptation

Show was a disappointment. Was planning on writing a lengthy essay on why it's not good but I'm two days post finishing it.... and I can barely remember the damn thing anymore. The characters, the plot, everything has just vanished from my mind. I think that speaks more about the show than anything ...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

There's nothing wrong with really stupid comedy. But, like everything else it needs to be done well. Not Another Teen Movie is really stupid comedy done really well. The line "She's got paint on her overalls!" is something me and my friends still will randomly work into nights of fun drink...

Re: [LAEM] Would an american Evangelion live-action movie have ever worked if it had been done right?

We already have a series.

It's called Neon Genesis Evangelion.

It's perfect. No need for an American anything.

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

Saw Spider-Man: Homecoming. Was fine. Nothing special. I found it to be another case of the "Marvel Marketing Misbrand" hurting my overall enjoyment of the film. Just like their earlier cases of misbranding: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier is really a 70s conspiracy thriller...wi...

Re: Netflix's Death Note Live Action Adaptation

Update: Heading into the final arc & the show does not let me down by reasserting itself as not just morally ugly but also being sexist garbage. Misa continues to be a non-character who we're supposed to like even though she's a murderer & is solely defined by her sex appeal, her thirst for ...

Re: EVA 2.0 OST= Kare Kano OST? WTF???

The music of the Rebuilds has been wonderfully reconceptualizing tracks from previous Anno projects. 1.0 used NGE tracks (naturally). 2.0 used KareKano (wonderful) & 3.0 had a few Nadia tricks sprinkled throughout (glorious). Shiro Sagisu didn't do the music for it but I would not be surprised i...

Re: [TV] BoJack Horseman

Oh Season 4 is very needed. The story of BoJack is far from over. Honestly, of all the Netflix Original Shows that get overhyped - any of the Marvel ones, Stranger Things, House of Cards - BoJack Horseman is legitimately worthy of all the praise it is given. In fact, it's under-praised in my opinion...

Classic CEO Power play. NERV CONSTRUCTION: Plans are complete for your office, Mr. Ikari. It's a very (sigh) very large open space. Like excessively large.

Sounds like they're peacocking.

They're hoping some investors will be allured by their beautiful decorative project announcements & will come to them with a nice juicy financial contribution.

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

So if they're doing three of these should we expect one of these annually? Will this be Toho's Godzilla placeholder until Anno is finished with Evangelion & they try to get him back for Shin Godzilla 2?

Re: Jurassic World

Nice animatronic. Will not get my hopes up.

Won't be surprised in the slightest if the much-hyped animatronics only appear in two or three shots throughout the entire film. Jurassic World had tons of on-set animatronics work & they only used them for close ups of the dying brontosaurus.
