Re: Last Movie You Watched

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a bad movie Just from the trailer alone, it looked like it was going to be absolute shit and I had zero interest in seeing it.I was holding out some small modicum of hope that it might be passable fare, but it looks like I needn't waste my time. Thus, JW:FK will be...

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...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

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. My guess is that it's some upgraded form of Unit 01, since ...

Re: Eva 01 themed shinkansen train

I just recently learned that 3 of the Shinkansen train lines are named Hikari, Nozomi, and Kodama. So, basically all the Horakis are named after speedy trains.

Re: Evangelion Soundtrack Is So Good?!?!?!

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. I absolutely cannot fucking sta...

Re: Favorite EVA fanfiction

Strictly Ghosts isn't finished, in that Bagheera has said he may add more to it sometime; but it's gone a while without, and it covers its chronological limits satisfactorily. I suppose he might want to bring up some more psychological matters. It didn't really seem as though there was much more th...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

Might be wrong on this but doesn't Japanese animation do voice work later on in the process compared to western animation? I know that in Pixar stuff and TV cartoons voice work is usually done early on with animation done afterwards. If Anno is already doing some editing then there's a good chance ...

Re: 3.33 Tonal Shift

In that case I'd argue Q is more optimistic than 24 since Shinji isn't despondent I could not disagree more and I have no clue how you think the kid, who is borderline catatonic at the end of the film, is in a better place than he was at the end of episode 24. In addition to indirectly causing Kawo...
