Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Well, the movie is about how the government with the people of Japan & their infrastructure defeat Godzilla. Instead of having him taken down by a Nuclear Deus Ex Machina or a bigger monster he's taken down by the people of Japan. It's no one thing that takes him down but a unified collaboration...

Re: Synchronisation battle: Why was Shinji paired with Asuka?

i haven't watched the series in a long time (coming up on my bi-annual watch) but isn't Unit 00 still being repaired/getting a spiffy new paint job at that point? I remember that aside from Operation Yashima, Unit 00 was out of commission a good deal in the first third of the series.

Re: Who is the most attractive character

Maya. Misato close second.

Though when that Sakura Suzuhara grows up she is going to be a real heartbreaker.

Two pages of "If Shinji commits suicide..."?

I mean, he won't. That's not the story.

Re: Blade Runner franchise

It's a fun in-joke. I think somewhere in online marketing for Prometheus the marketing team tossed in a line of text that the Weyland Corporation had some dealings with the Tyrell Corporation. It's a fun easter egg for people who are wiling to do the digging. Of course, the nerd in me has to point o...

Re: Am I alone in having a love hate relationship with Elfen Lied?

I remember loving it the first time I saw it about a decade ago. I marathoned the show and felt it was this great unheralded classic. But, then I remember I tried to revisit it a few months after that initial watch having impulse bought the entire series on brand-spanking new high quality DVD discs ...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I appreciated that the movie was willing to go that far out in terms of a main story & concept but the execution was garbage. Putting aside the CG animation which I was not a fan of - like a lot of cheaper CG animation environments & computer readouts looked great but the characters were sti...

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

Probably not. Partly because of age. Having your main character masturbate to a comatose colleague is a go-for-broke young(er) artist stamp of being edgy. I feel with 20+ years of experience Anno would probably not do something so direct. Partly circumstance. End of Evangelion wasn't originally plan...

Re: Could there be a way that Units 1 and 13 fight one another in Final

I figure the movie will set this up confrontation and then either go through with it in a final boss battle or more likely subvert it in some fashion. Eva 13 will of course feature into the narrative of FINAL somehow. I also stand by my long held belief that Shinji will get into an Eva one last time...

Re: The ocean is blue in Q's preview at the end of Break!

I wouldn't hold up any of the post-credit "Previews" to much scrutiny. I've always held the believe the unnecessary after the credit "Previews" in the Eva films have always been hastily put together. Something that Anno doesn't really care about and has only tossed onto the films...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

My two cents: Batman & Robin is a "better" movie than Batman Forever because it's more tonally consistent in it's cheesiness/plain terribleness. Forever is garbage but occasionally tries to dip its toes into being a real movie which makes it even worse. Plus, B&R has the joys of Mr...

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

Well the other big deal is the new Evangelion films are basically independent productions. Khara + Anno & his collaborators are not beholden to any larger studio/distributor. They can literally do whatever they want in these films and can take as long as they want. Even when George Lucas was doi...

Oh Pixar is great as long as it's not a Cars movie.... sadly The Good Dinosaur was the victim of Disney reacquiring them ( I wish we could have seen the original version of the film set for release in 2014 which was apparently a much weirder film where dinosaurs have evolved to basically be Amish, t...

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

Taking over a decade to make four theatrical length animated films WITH a couple year pause for the director to write, shoot, edit and release a reboot of the biggest franchise in his country? Yeah, sounds like Anno & Co are exactly on track. People constantly show their ignorance in the time co...
