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

Not so much “Tho r ’s a Nors e god and those don’t exist in the real world, silly studio,” and more like “That Thor 3 movie was okay I guess. Nothing special, tho. Kinda felt stud...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Directors often slyly telegraph their philosophical or thematic inspirations with book placement on film. Heck, even less-than-stellar filmmakers do that, like that Snyder/Goyer collab for Man of Steel.

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Honestly the real issue with pinning Mari as gay for Asuka is that Mari seems to be rather equal-opportunity with her behavior, and her behavior was never really all that sexual. She has positive responses towards people, sure, but they all seem to be towards Eva pilots, or to people with connection...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

@Manuel ikari, I like where you're coming from within terms of reading the characters from more of a studied and nearly academic way. I also doubt that Mari and Asuk are actually homo for each other in the Eva movies. However, one of the things you've missed here (and a thing that I think almost le...

Re: The seven deadly sins of Evangelion

Shinji hits every one of the seven deadly sins at some point in the show. Pride? Episodes 3 (disobeying Misato’s orders) and 16. (“You are number one!” “Battle is a man’s job!”) Lust? Episodes 5 (Rei dressing), 8 (Asuka undressing), 9 (Asuka sleeping), 20 (“Become one with me”), and EoE (“I know abo...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

In the 2.22 CRC production book, they make it clear that Mari was initially created for commercial purposes. I like how the character made mostly for marketing and merchandising is even telling the author/audience surrogate to get a grip on reality at the end of Eva Q. Anno just can’t let even a fu...

Re: 3D animation evanglion show

Advent Children-styled Eva doesn't appeal to me as much as I should think it does. But then, much of that movie is full of desaturated grey tones and the like, while Eva is known for being a very colorful show with vibrant colors. Maybe of the color pallet stayed the same, it could get behind a 3-D ...

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

Yeah, Disney made a bad choice and not only do they know it, they know that everyone else knows it. While the #RehireJamesGunn movement (both in Hollywood and on Twitter) probably won't actually get him rehired onto the project, it has been instrumental in exposing the very unsavory aspects of this ...

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

So, the thing about rehiring James Gunn is that Disney C.E.O. Bob Iger is considering retiring, which means that all of the higher-ups underneath him want to make it look that their decisions matter and are final. As a result, Alan Horn (who fired Gunn) isn’t backing down on his decision. Also, the ...

I really like how Disney shot themselves in the foot over the James Gunn situation and now they can’t even make a Guardians Vol. 3 movie.

Misato and Kaji are the walking manifestations of the word "cool." They are what cool people look like, and I am very fond of both characters for that fact.

Re: Flashing text (and Gerry Anderson influences)

I remember watching UFO sometime ago and noticed a lot of the similarities in both shows' OPs. I'll have to watch it again more closely and soak in all of the connections. It's nice to see Anno's influences come from both animation and live-action medium.

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

The only Eva film Funimation released without incident was 2.22. They’ve had to “fix” every other Eva release in some fashion. 1.01 has some embarrassing misspellings in its reading insert, the first press release of 1.11 had certain special features that Kara did not authorize them to have, and 3.3...

I feel like most of my chat/discussion contributions will have dried up after the Final film runs its course in this forum. I haven't really posted a lot in the NGE specific boards in a while now, and I have a feeling that the same might happen to NTE once everything is discussed to a certain point....
