I considered starting a Mamoru Hosoda General thread recently since I love all his stuff and his work at Toei seems to be overlooked. I think I just forgot to make the thread. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was what got me into his stuff, but I haven't seen it in a pretty long time. The thing t...

I just watched World on a Wire . This is something I suspect I would have enjoyed much more had I not read the book it's based on first, or waited longer before watching, as it simplifies Simulacron-3 's story and strips away many of the most interesting elements. (Which is... nearly alw...

By that logic 90% of mecha series are set in the same continuity.

What about Pacific Rim is specifically Eva that couldn't have come from other mecha anime that influenced Eva or that Eva influenced?

I watched Windaria today. I liked it but I'm not sure to what extent I liked it. It did certain things very well. The only significant problems were 1) the fanservice was misplaced (which is usually the case, isn't it?); if they felt obligated to include nudity in the movie, ther...

I just watched Killers on Parade , a.k.a. My Face Red in the Sunset . The head of a corrupt corporation hires a hitman to kill a secretary at a rival corrupt corporation, not realizing this hitman is actually just a regular guy. A colorful team of real assassins goes after the not-hitman to secure t...

I just watched A Day in the Country ( Partie de campagne ). It has a lot going for it but the rapiness of the male leads kind of spoils the idyllic feeling that was presumably intended. It occurred to me immediately that The Umbrellas of Cherbourg has a very similar ending. Is it a common tr...

Today I watched The Blob (1958). I'd seen it as a child, but only remembered the opening song, the blob-on-a-stick attacking the guy's hand, and the shot of the blob oozing into the movie theater. This time, what stuck out was how unusually good the script was. I felt like the film w...

Just because I kept it to assist my own memory, here's a list of every movie I watched in 2012. Titles I watched in theaters are in bold (I know Bomby wants all titles in bold, but this is almost nothing but titles so I assume it's OK this way), titles I watched for the first time th...

Re: Gunbuster Was Better Than Evangelion

Gunbuster also was unique in taking elements of shojo and teen drama and mixed that with Einstein's time dilation concepts making the story very emotional, much more so than Evangelion. That element comes directly from The Forever War . Which isn't a teen drama, but it uses time dilation fo...

Did he really? I assumed the lyrics to the VOX songs were by Loren and/or Mali.

I'd always assumed English must not have been Mike Wyzgowski's first language since the language is often awkward in his songs, but... I guess the mistakes he makes are mistakes hobbyist lyricists of dubious language proficiency might make. They just normally don't get to write songs for...

Yes, I'm having to stay away from anime sites and discussion threads entirely.

It appears the biggest problem with waiting for a BD release won't be my will power at all.

A subtitled version is indeed useful. They also translated that line as "Live, breathe the air, take in the feeling of peace and harmony.", but the beginning doesn't sound like they're singing "live".... It's just a copy/paste of the lyrics I posted here and on ANN f...

It's showing along with Q in theaters with a bit of new footage.
