Re: FLCL: Seasons 2 and 3

It's a strange controversy, indeed, and the first time I've ever been privy to the kind of internet anger and rage I'd always heard about over the years. I made a short audio recording in response to it, but since I promised to keep it on the forum where I posted it, I'll give you a summary of my th...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

We're having a bit of a snow storm (or the temperate zone equivalent) in Ireland at the moment, which has me stuck at home for the next few days with plenty of time to kill. So I decided to rewatch 3.0, and I think I've finally figured out what I think of the film; for now, at least. I think 3.0 is ...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

This has been commented quite a lot, but there are big disagreements. I have no problem with it, so I haven't investigated personally, but as I recall I got the impression that it's an issue of how the surround soundtrack gets mixed down to stereo in most listeners' systems. That could very well be...

Alien Resurrection (yeah, I'm ripping off Gendo Papa's formatting when he talked about Mute, but it's a good way to help me structure my thoughts) About 2 or 3 years, I watched the first three Alien films for the first time with my brother, a long time fan of the series. They were pretty good (alth...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

How often are the lip flaps finalised after the original dubbing to make them fit? I seem to remember that was a big deal with one of the famous films ( Akira ?, Nausicäa ?), but since then I've seen contradictory accounts. It was definitely Akira that used the technique of basing the lip flaps aro...

Re: Not all jokes are images! Text jokes...

I've developed an obsession for jokes that have overly elaborate set-ups in order to make the terrible punchlines work, as you will now see: What do you call an Olympic sport which involves people talking, while they throw frisbees? Discuss. What's an alternate term for a cellar where you play a cer...

Like with the previous post, I'm going to go through various thoughts I had while watching the film: -The editing is totally on point; scenes seamlessly transition to one from another, every short is neither too long nor too q...

I found some time this morning to sit down and watch 1.0, but before I get onto my thoughts, I want to thank everyone who's given me advice so far. I really do appreciate it! I'll reply to a couple of points that caught my interest: But be careful not to shoehorn NGE concepts and story-lines into th...

Re: Why does Kaworu have a different voice in the DC?

Since I'm a fan of the dub, I'll give the best explanation I can (as far as I've gathered, and my memory could be foggy somewhere, so please feel free to correct me): In 1996/7, ADV dubbed the original Evangelion TV series. For whatever reason, they chose not to dub the Director's Cut/NPC versions o...

Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

If you didn't know, I used to do YouTube videos once upon a time , and I've been thinking about getting back into that by making a video analysing the Rebuilds. Specifically, I want to analyse the criticism these films tend to get, and how most of it is based on some form of comparison to the origin...

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog

I think the reason critics, as well as most fans, got pissed with Sonic Forces was due to one big thing: since Lost World and Boom had been on the Wii U (which very few people owned), this was going to be the first main series Sonic game that most people would be able to play since Sonic Generation:...
