i fully agree, if it's good it's worth it. Like LOTR. It's really all about preference. As much as LOTR being fantastic movies, 3 hours is still draining for a lot of people. Personally, 1 hour 40 mins for Evangelion Q feels right to me, just so long as: 1) The story is told in whol...

CGI in and of itself is just a tool, and depending on its implementation can range from the utterly convincingly to the staggeringly fake. Not much different from practical effects in that regard. The techniques just have different capabilities, strengths and weaknesses, etc. With Thing 2011 , CG e...

What the hell!? That looks way better than the crap CG that we got from the final movie. Yeah, I do admit, some of the practical effects in the John Carpenter movie do look a little fake, but what Hollywood fails to realize is today's CGI makes EVERYTHING look fake.

I remember watching this on VHS as a kid. I didn't like it as much back then, but now looking back and rewatching some of it again is really nostalgic. Just like James' says, glad to have grown up in an age where television had balls.

Jonny Greenwood, or all of Radiohead together. Indeed. There Will Be Blood is one of my fav scores for a movie. Definitely would give Eva a really unique edge in emotional/psychological drama. But for a composer more for general mecha action, I always thought Norihiko Hibino , composer of Zone of t...

The Happy Video Game Nerd http://www.youtube.com/user/lophatjello Rinry http://www.youtube.com/user/rinrygamegame Rinry and HVGN are pretty good. They're among the few video game reviewers who don't thrash as much. Not to say reviewers who thrash aren't entertaining though. ;)

They're a less known group just starting off, but their reviews are quite good. Their Real Silent Hill Experience is probably the best analysis and review of the Silent Hill franchise online.
One of their members, Fungo, also does some reviews.

You know what I miss? The age of VHS and anticipating your favorite show to start on tv so you can start recording it. It gave you something to look forward to in the day.

I was in the theater the other day and I decided to check out the upcoming movie posters. I found that 12 out of 15 of the upcoming movies were either remakes or sequels. The remaining 3 were romantic comedies. Originality in Hollywood is dead. :(
