[size=6]*I'm even more racist then that, size]



fixed.


Seriously I'm still P'O about your comment that adding a politcial or Social element to your film will kill it. The opposite is true...it has to be more then a Micheal Mooreish poltcial slandering of an issue and be more important than lol 'demcroats are gay' though and there are issues like that. Racism, how we conduct ourselves in warfare, ect.

The best "political" works will never age, because there wlll ALWAYS be buffoons, maniacs, and villains in charge of governments and militaries.

Quite so. The Cold War may be over, but that has not stopped the communist forces from trying to sap and impurify our precious bodily fluids!

If you wrote and directed the Live Action Eva movie, how would you make it?

1) Little or No CGI. The Evangelions Will not be Computer Generated, they will be anamatronic. The Angels will be CG for the most part

2) It would be a series of three films. Asuka would be introduced in the middle of the first film. Jet Alone will not be a significant role, but will be mentioned.

A) Movie 1: Be a heroic style film, make Shinji into the hero, with the makings of a tragic hero. Movie ending on a happy note, after the "Dance Like you want to win" Episode.

B) Movie 2: Heroic, yet a comedy with the conflict between Shinji and Asuka. Movie ending after Asuka gets mind raped, looses are Synchronization, and then Koworu is brought in.

C) Movie 3: Psychological with some funny moments, really feeling like the movie "A Clockwork Orange". It would focus on Shinji breaking down, thinking he is cured when Third Impact occurs, afterward Shinji breaks back down.

3) The Music will be be re-recorded but still the same or similar arrangements from the Show. A Cruel Angel's Thesis will be prominent in the sound track, including a heavy metal riff of the fast part of A Cruel Angels Thesis, namely the Chorus once,

"Hito wa ai wo tsumugi nagara rekishi wo tsukuru
Megami nante narenai mama
Watashi wa ikiru..."

and the the Chorus once again. This would play when Shinji finally defeats and Angel, or when Unit-01 goes Berserk.

A slower arrangement would play when Shinji's and Asuka's relationship grows.

4) The Characters will be their proper ethnicity. It'll take place in Japan.

What are you thinking?

The actors would at least look Japanese.

It would follow the plot as closely as possible.

Cut out some of the really vague stuff.

Make some of the loosely implied stuff more direct.

Cut out the action arc.

Kaworu and Asuka make out.

I would make what it should be, a live-action version of the anime. I would make it a trilogy of movies comprising of the show's episodes. I would make it almost scene for scene with except what happens in the episodes closer to the end of the series(keeping up the action that started to dwindle towards the end of the series while keeping up the psychological aspect), give it its own ending thats mind rapey. I would probably get rid of the sequence of the magma diver episode or make it a more serious sequence. As for the violence I would keep it as close to it appears in the series while making sure it doesn't cross over into the R-rating. As for the sexuality I would probably tone it down a bit because I would like it to be a PG-13 Movie.

As for the Evas I would have Unit-01's teeth show whenever its mouth its open and goes berserk instead of the red things then the actual white teeth show up when it beats Zeruel.

I would also have versions of some songs from the soundtrack like The Beast, The Beast 2, Cruel Angels Thesis, the one that plays during the Gaghiel battle (forgot what its called), The Longest Day, and others from the series as well as some new ones.

As for special effects I would go with WETA since they are good at making cgi while making it look like an actual physical object. I would have a cgi animatronic combination for the angels and evas.
