Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

I've noticed a lot of people concerned with 3.0+1.0 featuring yet another Impact event during the third act which may or may not be averted. It seems people are concerned that this will be repetitive of the last two movies. How about instead of Final Impact occurring toward the end of the film, it's...

Re: Is it weird I can't pick a side?

Why choose between Rei and Asuka when you can have both? It's Shinji you should be kicking to the curb. ReixAsuka 4 lyfe.

Re: What would you change about cinema/film history?

Star Wars would end at one film. That's it. One. Star Wars. Movie. Are you trying to get banned? I don't consider myself above such things. :emogendo: jk i'm super above them As for my input: I wish Disney had more faith in Tron, and continued with the plans after Legacy. Instead, I hear they're no...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

I'm really just in this for Michael Keaton playing Birdman. A lot of "^very much this". Spiderman was my favorite superhero growing up. His origin story on screen, however, has been played out a lot. This movie will inevitably be Spidey settling into his role as superhero and ultimately p...

Re: Currently playing 4: Guns of the Patriots

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time has now been ported onto the PS4 and I've logged about 6.5 hours into it. The graphics are much crisper now, and details in the environment that were once blurry are now clear; I've played this game dozens of times, but with the new graphics I'm noticing things I'd n...

I'll let movieartman tackle that. . . I'm not in the mood right now. I hear lot of complaining, but no proposals for solutions to flaws you see in Superman's character. Has Chuck not gone over time and time again his ideal vision of a Superman movie? I'm sure he could repeat it again, but like you ...

Misplaced my phone for a moment while at school, and now it's gone. Yay.

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

No one ever said making mistakes was inherently bad. It's only bad when your plot requires that everyone make obvious mistakes that real people would never make purely to serve the needs of the plot. I don't think this is a particularly opaque concept, so I'm at a bit of a loss as to why you're pla...

This logic does not compute for me. How is having a plot full of people and structures making mistakes inherently bad? Again, I fail to see the objectivity behind all this.

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

At that point everyone in power as well as everyone they hire is carrying the idiot ball, which is its own problem. There's another theme of the movie: even the gods and the powers that be aren't perfect. David is disappointed by his creators, the same way Halloway and Shaw are disappointed by thei...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

The capitalists in this franchise haven't exactly been shown to be competent either. Who says they're any better at their jobs than the scientists? Another huge part of this movie is using power simply because you can, and not because it's entirely understood. Weylin himself had a deadline consideri...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

It is generally not possible for an idiot ball to be used brilliantly, as proper use of a character's ignorance, stupidity, or essential nature does not involve carrying the ball. The idiot ball by definition involves characters acting out of character and contrary to what the narrative's establish...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

If you're acknowledging that an idiot ball was needed to make them happen, then yes. This is where you and I disagree then. An idiot ball is a plot device like any other, sometimes used brilliantly, and other times just used. The usage of an idiot ball in of itself does not make something bad, and ...

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

Are these things, such as the hammerpede scene, still objectively bad if I enjoyed them and didn't mind the idiot ball that needed to be carried to make it happened? What's wrong with seeing idiots get killed off due to their own idiocy? Being that it's a trope in horror films, it's something of a t...

Re: What are some of the good traits you can say about Asuka?

Remember the episode Asuka come home early from her date? She found Shinji practicing his cello and complimented on his playing. This was also the episode they later kissed. I believe this is the one episode were they connected the closest.
