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...

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

I mean it's fake but interesting. Khara has complete control over the workflow of Evangelion. There's very little chance anything will get out without their approval. I mean Khara kept the entirety of 3.0 under wraps up to the premiere. November 16, 2012 everyone still assumed the third movie would ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I'm happy that for the first time in my life they made a good Star Wars movie. It's flawed for sure and so much of the "we're destroying the old ways to make room for the new" reads less as natural storytelling to me and more as Disney needs a fresh slate if they're gonna make one to two o...

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

I've always held the belief that while Shin Godzilla was in the final stages of post-production Anno was starting work on Final . Glad to see my assumptions were accurate. I don't know if Anno has had a full outline of what will happen in Final pre-2016 - surely he had ideas, concepts, sketched out ...

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

You gotta love Anno's fascination with cables, wires and the physical connectivity between machinery. He makes it look so good.

And Anno himself is looking fit and happy. I have a strong feeling Eva Final is going to be really special!

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

Film needs to clear $700 - $750 million just to start making a profit. This was a film that was in the planning in some form or another for years and from conception was expected to at minimum make over $1 BILLION. Warner Brothers was hoping to net 100s of millions from the theatrical alone and even...

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

The new Khara2 twitter account is fun. Basically, it seems someone at Khara is allowed to tweet the experience of "keenly making" Final. It's a less formal official account that offers a more behind-the-scenes look at production. Nothing too informative yet. Though apparently Mahiro Maeda ...
