Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I've noticed that Japanese Godzilla almost always starts as a heel and then arcs toward an anti-hero in later movies as he fights other monsters. There's always some initial event where Godzilla is hostile towards humanity. In the Heisei and Millennium series he never loses that antagonistic streak....

God damn was that a rough ride. I just felt sick at the end of it.

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

If things continue in the direction they're currently heading it looks like Godzilla vs Kong will be the final installment of the Monsterverse. From what I understand, Legendary's deal with Toho expires after Godzilla vs Kong anyway and Toho is set to roll out their own new series starting in 2021....

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Re: Ghidora They threw in imagery comparing Ghidora to William Blake’s Great Red Dragon paintings, and you know what? They actually earned it. They made him awesome and terrible. Giving each head a unique personality added a lot. Am I reading into it too much or were they trying to imply that he wa...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I get the sense that this GKotM movie might feel more like a big budget version of a Jun Fukuda Godzilla flick, rather than a big budget version of an Ishiro Honda Godzilla flick. Is this true? I mean, I’ll enjoy either, but I prefer the latter. The best way I can think to describe it is that someo...

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

Regarding the plot of the movie, I do wish they'd had one more scene showing how 2014 Thanos' ship got to the present when they didn't have any more Pym particles. I was left with the impression that Thanos had his people reverse engineer them and the temporal GPS since we saw Nebula give hi...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Snoke was a dud of a character, an off-brand Palpatine wrapped in a mystery box. Having him be a red herring that's offed by Ben was, imo, the smartest thing they could have done with him as he was. Kylo Ren doing what grampa Vader couldn't and claiming the big chair by offing his master was a refre...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Rey using her old look is probably a necessary concession to mask the fact that they're using old footage of Fisher from The Force Awakens. As for the trailer...I don't know. First watch, I liked it right up until the laugh at the end. Kennedy confirmed Palpatine is coming back in some way and that ...

Re: Eva 2.XX Storyboards vs. Final

Wow! Would you say this is good evidence for the Adam Kadmon theory? The final scripts have cut all mention of what happened during Second Impact and what the Katsuragi team was doing in Antarctica in the first place, and while the details of the final sequence differ from this somewhat, this inform...

Re: Rebuilds being a continuation of EoE?

^I could see that. Do any of the other Eva properties or spin-offs besides NME use the Wevangeliwon spelling?

3.0's ending provided a nice set up to start over, just further in the future. Eva is a story that repeats. :P

Eva-fan had a video speculating that it's called that because the movie will end the current "old" Evangelion and also start a new one. "Evangelion 3.0 + Shin Evangelion 1.0" essentially.

Just a reminder that Anima 4 and 5 come out later tonight/tomorrow depending on your time zone!

I'm not really expecting anything either. Khara can post whatever news whenever now that they're so active on social media. But you never know what else might pop up. Who could have predicted the Godzilla vs Evangelion campaign? :lol:

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

April 1st is Monday. Think they'll post any kind of news or updates on the Eva site or their social media channels? We're still too far out for a release date but I'd think we'd get a key visual or something any time now. So far they've just shown that sketchy poster and the New Unit 02 doodle.

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

Here's a question I just thought up: Is there a chance this whole matter is due to union rules, whether actors are part of an actor's union or not? I don't know if Netflix uses union or nonunion actors for voiceacting, but it could be a factor. Not sure about Netflix, but Funimation is non-union. J...

Re: [Film] Alita: Battle Angel

I have mixed feelings on the movie. The VFX were fantastic and Rosa Salazar was excellent as Alita. I really enjoyed the first two-thirds or so but in the final third I felt like it stumbled hard and did some things that left a bad taste in my mouth. Didn't really care for it upon leaving the theate...
