Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

Though hopefully unlike the Dragonball movie there will be opportunities to see the film subtitled in Japanese. Dragonball is pretty much the only case where the I literally cannot stand the Japanese dub. I’m sure Masako Nozawa is a sweet lady, but good God is her voice distracting. Though, the ori...

Re: The James Bond Thread

CARY FUKUNAGA IS DIRECTING THE NEXT FILM.

I do expect the release date to get pushed back. A Valentine’s Day release for a Bond film is weird as fuck.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

It seems to have something to do with Shiro Sagisu. It might be his birthday or something and it looks like he’s performing with Loren (so maybe another collab for the FINAL soundtrack???)

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

The Japanese also have somewhat of an aversion to the number 4. I don’t recall the exact reasoning, but it’s like bad luck or something, so 3.0+1.0 gets around that. I want the opening shot to be of a red landscape, like the end of 3.0, but then we pan and it’s Shinji in his school uniform and Asuka...

If you ever go to Japan, you’ll find that matcha (green tea) ice cream is actually extremely popular. And it’s delicious. They even sell green tea Kit Kats, and they’re pretty good, too.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

If you had told me in early 2013 (after I first saw Q) that we would get a new Star Wars trilogy fully released before the next Rebuild film was out, I would have laughed in your face...and then would have become sad because I would have thought that such a long gap would have been due to Anno eithe...

In his own words he ran out of ideas after 3.0 and was overworked, the toughest point in his khara career. This basically confirms what I've long suspected: Anno did not have some kind of grand ...

Phasma is even more pointless than Mari in Rebuild. It's been an utter waste of Gwendoline Christie.

True? Didn't like it, or just got sidetracked? I read the synopsis and I thought it sounded like Perfect Blue with cyberpunk/sci-fi, which struck me as my kind of thing. Keen to hear your thoughts (minus spoilers, of course). The plot just wasn't going anywhere and unlike Perfect Blue , who had a p...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

I was suggesting, metaphorically, that Pacific Rim is true to its anime/kaiju film/mecha influences and the dip in quality in the sequel is as if Americans tried to replicate it with the same fidelity that they brought over the feel of Ghost in the Shell, Dragonball, Godzilla (in 1998) etc. I know ...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

That would make sense, given that all of the tracks for Q were titled in French.

He has to be recording at least SOME material for Final. Hopefully, he cools it with the corny male choir tracks. Shit has been cringe.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I actually was able to enjoy Solo more than TLJ simply because I had less things to gripe about, with the major exception of the twist at the end. It felt pointlessly dark and not earned. I would have been able to accept it if the reveal has been, say, of Boba Fett, but Maul just seemed too dark for...

To me, the photo and captions indicate that Tsurumaki and a production associate are working on storyboarding an action sequence with a brand new Eva unit that they don't want anyone to know about yet, as the precise name has been censored.

In terms of all soundtracks across the franchise, I think that Sagisu peaked with his work for EOE. It contains some truly mesmerizing orchestral and choral pieces without it becoming cheesy or overblown....like the majority of his action tracks for the Rebuild films.
