Re: Ghostbusters (2020)

Any Bill Murray movie can be instantly and immeasurably improved by replacing him with Jeff Goldblum. The older I've gotten, the more Bill Murray's on-screen antics feel more like an asshole trying to act like he isn't. Ghostbusters I & II were the more obvious examples of this, but it's even th...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

There's a category error here when discussing this in the context of the Rebuilds. Those were announced as two and two halves from the get-go (even if the halves have become full length). The original Matrix was marketed stand-alone, and only grew follow-on films later. Perhaps you were looking for...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

Yeah this whole "matrix wasn't complete" is wholly arbitrary. Any story can be broken down into as many parts as you wish and any trilogy can be seen as a "part" of a larger story. It's wholly arbitrary and really just a double standard to defend certain stories as "not bei...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

No, I'm not. I'm just asking a question. I haven't argued anything yet. But to be clear, no, we should NOT factor in untold factors into anything that isn't told to us yet within the narrative itself. Lemme just get to the point here. I think what you're attempting to argue for here is that a story ...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

Let me ask you a better question. This is relevant, how? We're discussing rebuild not the matrix. If you want to use the matrix as an example then you're gonna need to get specific on what they're an example of and simultaneously get specific parts of the stories you're using to make a point about ...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

"Ambiguous storytelling" is code for "payoffs without set up". Failing to set up future payoffs is simply bad writing. End of. Let me ask you a question. Which is the better film, the first Matrix movie, or either of the Matrix sequels? (Also, I think you might mean "set-up...

Re: EOE as a comedy

Okay edge lords, calm down. I don’t know if adding/imagining extra-textual elements means that the movie is funny. I think it’s more like you’re just really good at amusing yourselves while watching movies.

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

I really doubt that Shikinami has the same mother issues as Soryu. Everything surrounding Soryu, her distain for dolls, comparing Unit 02 to a doll, insisting that Unit 02 was a soulless creature, crying "Mama" in her sleep, the occasional flashbacks to Asuka's younger days with her derang...

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

Shikinami’s personality traits in general aren’t as obvious as Soryu’s, and I think that has more to do with Anno’s evolution as an artist than it does anything else. Yes, Soryu’s very blunt and to the point in NGE compared to Shikinami in NTE, but that’s also true of their respective works as a who...

Re: Star Trek

Shit, mainstreaming Star Wars for a mass audience isn't even working. I will argue that Star Wars was always mainstream. (It didn't become a pop-culture legend and break box office numbers by being a small, niche, underground film.) It was the Expanded Universe books, especially in the 90's, that f...

Sounds like I actually need to see this bat-shit lunacy. Wonder if a RedBox around me has the Blu-ray. AvP always sounded like the execs were high as a kite (as they often were in the late 80's/early90's) and one said to the other "Dude, like... the Predator's an alien, right?.... What if the P...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Yuko Miyamura also has a Twitter, and she’s been reposting Tiffany Grant petitions for re-dubbing Eva for Netflix. I think she lives in Australia, so she probably doesn’t spend as much time with the Anno family as Ogata does.

Re: Adult Swim NTE differences?

I don't know. They've re-edited NTE before on Adult Swim. (At least, I think it was Adult Swim, and not Toonami.) Even if they're night-time programing, and even though the FCC has no jurisdiction over subscription-based media (such as cable network channels), a lot of networks still see it as good ...

Hm.... I mean, if the upscale is really good, a manually upscaled video for Blu-ray is still better than an automatic upscale of DVD content. And for standard definition shows that were fully digitally produced, I actually prefer the upscale to the original DVD when playing them on a flat panel tele...

Now THIS Funimation should be able to afford the rights for. That's cute, but Funimation can't have it anyway. NOZOMI ENTERTAINMENT ALREADY HAS THE LICENSE FOR THE DVDS (and I consider them the better anime disc distributor anyway), so I think it's gonna be more like Nozomi's other release of Utena...
