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

Ragaholic got it wrong about the 80's. Fantasy was a niche market at best during that time. The real popular 80's genre was comedy. It's partially why Ghostbusters wouldn't work in a contemporary market regardless of the casting.

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

DC shoulda, woulda, coulda done a lot of things differently. But they didn't, and so here we go. Honestly, I'm waiting for the other show to drop as far as superhero movies go. After the Infinity Wars movies, I'm not the superhero trend will last much longer in its "Cinematic Universe" for...

Re: EVA 2.0 OST= Kare Kano OST? WTF???

The piano tracks become very noticeable after you rewatch episode 24 and experience their absence. You get to the scene where Kaworu and Shinji hang out for the night, and your mind is like "0 out of 10, needs more pianos."

Re: EVA 2.0 OST= Kare Kano OST? WTF???

I... don't remember a choral version of that tune. Maybe I'm thinking of a different song? It's not the one that plays during the first angel attack in the movie, is it?

Edit: Wait! I remember. It played during the second Angel battle in the movie. That one did seem a little off to me as well.

Re: EVA 2.0 OST= Kare Kano OST? WTF???

Track wise, the soundtrack is split right down the middle. About 17 piano tracks and 17 fully orchestrated tracks, not all of which have the men's choir. So, yeah. Objectively and unarguably there are less men's choir tracks in Q than there are other tracks. You can still think that they're over dra...

Okay. That's, like, your opinion, man... I have a hard time complaining about Sagisu's supposed over-produced orchestral scores when A) They're awesome, and B) Evangelion Q has only 4 or 5 real examples of that. Outside of the few loud and crazy moments surrounding Wille, most of Eva Q's score is si...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Baby Driver is the best summer movie since Mad Max Fury Road. If you can only see one summer film this year, skip the MCU and watch Baby Driver instead.

Re: [LAEM] Would an american Evangelion live-action movie have ever worked if it had been done right?

... Battle Royale ? :devil: I always considered that more of a dark comedy, not a serious drama. (Or, at least a very silly, psudo-Final Destination-style flick.) Yuko Miyamura's recorded video at the end of Act 1 of Battle Royale explaining how to play the game kind of established that tone for th...

Aye, that I know. It's still an Ambrahamic religion, though, so it has a bit more Western recognizability than it does a Far East Asian recognizability.

Re: How do You Respond to People Saying Eva is Pretentious?

I think it's important to note who says Eva is pretentious, and why they may think that. Eva uses a lot of Christian iconography in its basic aesthetic. We've got cross-shaped explosions, Adam, Lilith, Angels, giant beings nailed to red crosses, and even the show's named translates into "Gospel...

"Most people would argue" that Asuka is at least one of two "best girls," and that Shinji simply needs to "stop being a pussy" and "get in the damn robot." So I don't think many people have a clear consensus as to how frustrating Asuka could be as an individua...

Re: Star Wars

I, personally, cannot be bothered with whether or not they include practical effects. At this point even that is a calculated move by the studio to profit off of nostalgia over good story telling.

Yeah, $100 Million at the very least.

^ I am more inclined to think that a standard, archetypal "Hero's Journey" narrative is more lazy than a Romeo and Juliet adaptation. I guess the same thing goes to the music usage in Eva.

Re: Your Stupidest Eva Interpretations

Mari is an actual, miniature, self-sustaining Evangelion unit. This is why she likes LCL so much. She sees the act of entering and piloting another Eva unit as something far more deviant and sexual than even Matt Greenfield's wildest interpretations of the franchise.
