Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

^ Building anticipation is worthless if you don't reward it with a worthwhile romp afterwards. It's like Hitchcock's building tension with a bomb that's about to go off, only for that bomb to make a tiny little popping sound. The most amount of Godzilla we've had in 10 years is Shin Godzilla . All o...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Scripted American television basically exists only to achieve longevity, and not to tell stories with beginnings, middles, and ends. Every TV producer has wanted to make the next M*A*S*H* series within terms of both longevity and syndication ever since they found out how successful M*A*S*H* was. Thi...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I did almost fell asleep several times throughout the movie. I'm kinda surprised how right I was in that Godzilla just wouldn't be physically moving much in this movie. Seeing the trailers, I thought "This thing can't look good in motion," and it seemed like the filmmakers also knew that w...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Finally getting around to watching Stranger Things. 4 Episodes into it, and this is either going to be the best show ever or the absolute worst show ever. No in-betweens. But what I've seen is damn impressive so far. It almost makes me forget that I'm watching American television. (Almost. I still f...

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

^ I think we see Anno begin to part ways with his shocking forms of story-telling in Shiki-Jitsu. As powerful as that movie is, it doesn't rely too much on overt sexual expressions in order to force a reaction from his audience. I do like the fact that it's still in him somewhere, though. These rewr...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I liked it. I'm not saying it's good. The characters are disposable, the sci-fi tech is bland, the revenge plot is basic, the film's core animation aesthetic is trash, and even Godzilla's visual design leaves a lot to be desired. But it's a fresh and unexplored concept of the G-Zilla in a true Godzi...

Thought experiments can't prove anything more the fact that people can set up an internal logic in order to think about a wide range of things.

Re: Would you rather "Evangelion Edition"

Both. Asuka is the 18th Angel. (Confirmed in EoE.) I want Asuka to scream while she eats me.

Who's hair would you rather braid (or simply see braided)? Kaji's or Aoba's?

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

Unit 13 is out of commission unless Kaworu starts it up again. (He’s still in there, waiting to act.) Unit 01 is out of commission unless Rei II starts it up again and refuses to be a battery for AAA Wunder. (She’s still in there, mark my words.) I’ll be shocked if Shinji pilots anything in Shin Eva...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

As for the episodic formula, like I said before, my inspiration for why I think like that comes from Cartman from South Park and his burning hatred of Family Guy which extends to what the creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have said what they really think about that show. So, you took an argument ...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

You have to ignore things that you yourself establish in order to make the "corpse" idea maybe-possibly work, which probably means that's not a good way to go. You know what? You're right. In NTE all of the Angels dissolve. I figured that maybe AAA Wunder could have been like Ramiel in NG...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

I always assumed that we knew that the AAA Wunder was some sort of fallen Angel. All that stuff about the Adams were separate from all that stuff about the Angels. I always assumed that referring to Mark.09 as "Adam's Vessel" meant that it wasn't an angel, simply because the characters wou...

Re: Ayanami and Autism

She is not autistic, nor do I think she was meant to serve as a commentary of autism, but I can see why someone who is autistic would relate to her. Anno's comments that reference autism tend to be saved for discussing the otaku, of which he identifies as one, and uses Shinji as his self-insert char...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Shinji won't commit suicide. Not because "he doesn't have the guts to do it," but rather because Shinji was always the focal point upon which Anno hung the entire Evangelion franchise. No Shinji? No Eva. But, if Shinji commits suicide in Shin Eva, my guess would be that the movie will take...

Batman Forever is a competent nod to the kinds of fun that can be had with Batman, a type of fun that ha...
