Re: Star Wars

Wasn't Obi-Wan supposed to have gone into hiding between III & IV? As in, keeping out of the way and doing as little as possible in order to not attract the Empire's attention? Because if that's the case, I really don't know how you can make a big blockbuster film about a character who is delibe...

Re: Star Wars

So that's... what now, THREE Star Wars spin-off films where the entire premise seems to be based on fanservice and nothing else? Rouge One : Let's take this opportunity to expand on the Star Wars universe by addressing a 'plothole' that only riles up CinemaSins and overly nitpicky folks. Han Solo: L...

Re: FML general thread [8]

This has been poking at me for the last couple of weeks, but I figured I may as well rant about it today. My dad and I are the only people who use our PC, so whenever I decide to pop on over to YouTube, I can see recommendations based on videos he's been watching. Most of them tend to be comedians/a...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Was very bored yesterday, so I picked a random film from a list on Netflix and watched it: Not Another Teen Movie , a 2001 comedy that takes every single high-school movie cliché and exaggerates it to hell and back. The plot is basically She's All That , to the point where Chris Evans and Chyler Lei...

Translating the S2 Works Booklet (or some of it)

The soundtrack to Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of my all time favourite soundtracks, and the man who composed them, Shiro Sagisu, is one of my all time favourite composers. Because of that, I'd like to to find interviews with him or his comments on music he's worked on, but I tend to come up unluc...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Just finished watching the Castlevania Netflix series and I gotta be honest, that was terrible. I'm not really a fan of the series, so this isn't some bitter fanboyism masquerading as critique. My issues with the series lie with its mistakes and them alone. So, what did I not like about the series? ...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

So, I ended up watching episodes 18-21 of Gurren Lagann yesterday. The fact that I was hooked enough not just three, but FOUR, episodes in one sitting likely speaks volumes of how much I've gotten into this show. Unfortunately, watching more than a couple of episodes results in them blurring togethe...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I had a couple of hours to kill, so I decided to watch The Full Monty . It's considered a (fairly) modern British comedy classic, or is at least very well liked from what I generally gathered, so I was looking forward to seeing how it turned it. How's the film? Eh, it's alright. It's not terrible; f...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Went and saw Baby Driver this week. Please go and see it, if you can. It's the best live-action film I've seen since Fury Road . Film-making wise, it is one of the most ambitious films I have ever seen, and easily blows every other 'big-brand franchise/superhero/Star Wars' movie out of the water. Ev...

Ended up watching episodes 14-17 of Gurren Lagann today (mostly, though I'll explain that in a bit). Before I get into my thoughts on each episode, I'd like to say that I'm really getting into the show now, to the point where I honestly considered binge-watching as much of the show as I could until ...

Re: How many people in this forum would support an Instrumentality for mankind?

I have a feeling that if all of mankind were to come together into a collective hive mind, it would be as if everyone was on Twitter and constantly tweeting everything that came to mind, with no way of blocking it out and everyone follows each other. In short, it would be hell. Regardless, as someon...

As usual, I'll post my thoughts on each episode: Episode 10 I didn't realize it until now, but I've become quite endeared to the cast of the show. Like I...
