Re: News [NO POLITICS]

That's a good point; I can't even see a brass section in that video (though I can hear it). That's kind of weird now that I think about it.

Re: [Film] Prometheus + Sequels

^Of course, the flip side to that runs something like this: Prometheus fanboys are unwilling or unable to see the flaws in their beloved movie, and they dismiss any and all criticism leveled at it no matter how legitimate or well-supported. They've decided the movie is the greatest thing ever and si...

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

So what are some of the positive things you can say about her? She's brilliant and beautiful and proud and defiant and fierce. She isn't particularly nice, but I don't care -- I appreciate her as a character, not as a life partner. And I honestly feel bad for anyone who can't see any value in a per...

Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

If a virus invades your computer, do you call a tactical general or an IT technician? If I'm in the military I call my CO and do what he tells me to do. Mind you, with policy being what it is I have a pretty good idea what he'll tell me to do, but I run it by him first since he's in charge. That's ...

Think you're mixing people together. Sgt. Rock worked with Easy Company, and was a DC character. The Howling Commandos worked with Sgt. Fury and were Marvel characters.

Re: Star Trek

I have no issue with the uniforms, since they look like actual military uniforms. I appreciated Enterprise for giving the crew uniforms that seemed halfway plausible, just as I appreciated the TOS movies which likewise at least gave lip service to something resembling a dress uniform. But the fact i...

That suit of Mera's looks awfully uncomfortable. Hopefully it's not as stiff-looking when she's actually moving.

As to WW, yay!

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

Indeed. Had she known what happened during his experience down at Neo NERV, then maybe, just maybe , she might be little more sympathetic towards him. But quite frankly, she was not. And probably never will, because that's just Asuka. The Asuka in your mind, anyway. ;) Others see things differently.
