Re: Star Wars

I can't wait to see another movie full of reference to make nerds claps and cheer, carefully planned plot points not so different from what has already been done in the original movies to not alienate the "hardcores" and cameos of characters from the OT. :um: Me neither. :D Oh, you mean t...

Re: Star Wars

I really hope they keep it small. I want an Obi-Wan Western similar to Unforgiven. I want him struggling with his faith as a Jedi, his guilt as a failed teacher, and his burden of looking over Luke. This film should be about him finding clarity in his purpose. Please no flashbacks. You can get so mu...

Official "Hello/Goodbye" Thread!

The previous and separate threads we had, the welcome and departures thread, were used almost interchangeably at times, so we decided to merge their functions into one. If you're new here, please introduce yourself! Tell us about yourself, and what brought you here. We're glad to have you. ^_^ For t...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Let's examine our first shot of Nerv HQ from the outside: http://i.imgur.com/6Pr5btXm.png We have three parts. Primarily, there's the pyramid; this is Nerv HQ itself. On the left, taking up the majority of the space in the frame, is a lake. The lake is an inverse pyramid digging into the ground. The...

Yes! It was only a matter of time, but the news is good to hear nonetheless. They'd be fools not to get Ewan back.

Re: Why Gendo never talk to Asuka?

Gendo is a man of singular obsession, consumed by his work. He rarely interacts with anybody unless it's relevant to his goals. Asuka is a disposable pawn in the grand scheme of things. Her Eva isn't special in any way, and she herself has no role in the culmination of Gendo or Seele's plans, nor do...

Re: These Moons Were Made For Walking (Weird Image Thread 8)

There are editing techniques, popular amongst YouTubers, where you film yourself twice from the same camera angle and later splice the shots together into one frame to appear as if done in one shot. WheezyWaiter does that sort of thing a lot. Example: https://youtu.be/bypUk5FvjvQ

Re: FML general thread [8]

There are many conspiracies in the world. Many are probably true. A lot aren't though. We live in an age of information, too much information. Many of us pick and choose our own truths, and can be allowed to live within bubbles of relative delusion. Those prone to crazy conspiracy theories have thic...

NTE would for sure be in it's own thread. I currently plan to do EoE in this thread in two parts, as Ep 25' and 26'.

That actually looks a lot like the dragon priests from Skyrim.

I'm going to go play Skyrim now. Bye.

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

I edited the OP a bit to hopefully clarify my intents with this thread. I also resized the images in my initial post about episode 01. One thing that caught my eye when watching the episode, but I couldn't quite gather my thoughts on before was while Shinji and Misato are first entering Nerv. As Mis...

Kaworu and Shinji are still in their male school uniforms. I don't think this is a gender bend, so much as everybody is now male

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Ah yes. Limp cigarettes. I was trying to make a connection between the ash tray and Nerv HQ, and this helps. The ashtray has the Nerv logo on it, and the ridges make it look like a castle wall. The cigarettes are limp and powerless within their fortress walls, unable to defend themselves from attack.

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Alright, I just finished Episode 01. I took more notes than I thought I would, three written pages. Here's what I've got: Right away we're told it's the year 2015. We see a broken city, partially submerged in water. A state of emergency is being declared. From the condition of the city, it's clear t...

I dunno. I was visiting family. It was a smart TV of some sort, and well over 40 inches. It just made me more aware of the fact that what I was watching was staged and filmed.

Re: Analyses and Comments on Death + Rebirth

@Sachi Even in Hollywood, huh? Well, I'm not so naive (anymore) that I'd think SoCal to be completely free of that sort of thing... :) Eh, I've only been here in Hollywood a couple years, but I'm a California native nonetheless. Things were a lot different here regarding homosexuality a decade ago....

Reichu is bae. P.S. (Is there anyone who does not love Kaworu's "exuding soft and wispy bishounen androgyny from every pore on his body"?) Just all those people made uncomfortable by even the slightest hint of homo-eroticism. Sadly, there's more of them out there than you might think. It s...
