Re: Last Movie You Watched

watched Bumblebee the other day and enjoyed it. I thought it was fun and heartfelt although it was dragged down by some very cliche and hammy performances from John Cena's character and Dr. Powell. But I thought the dynamic between Charlie and Bumblebee was well done and the emotional beats landed f...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

∆ Reminder they'll make the Mario film.. I watched Marriage Story and holy shit, I loved it. It's not only the film though. I also happen to love Adam Driver. And his performance is godly. So is Scarlet Johanson's. They got me to cry. I actually watched this the other day and didn't really enjoy it...

Re: The Satire of Evangelion

Just so we’re clear on terms, here’s how these words are usually used: Satire - Humorous deconstruction of an idea or property. Parody - Humorous homage of an idea or property, usually done out of love. Roast - Praising an idea, a person, or a property via humorous sarcasm. While this is generally ...

Re: The Satire of Evangelion

Yeah I would also jump in and say that satire isn't necessarily a comedy as far as I understand. Parody on the other hand, which seems to share similarities with satire due to both being able to be funny, does pretty much have to be humorous. The difference between satire and parody I think is reall...

Re: [Merch] Neon Genesis Evangelion TV Animation Production Art Collection

Does this book contain a bunch of previously unseen work? Or is it more a collection of other stuff that's been released over time in various places? I'm very interested in getting it, just not sure how worth it it is if a lot of it is already out there...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

It's a crying shame that Gareth Edwards hasn't directed since 2016. I know fanatical Star Wars idiots probably feel like they've won something with that, but SW hasn't been the highlight of anyone's directorial career since 1983, so I don't know what they were expecting and they're gonna (rightfull...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

The new Asuka was the best change of the bunch and the new Misato was the worst - mainly because I think Allison Keith was the one member of the NGE and Rebuild dubs who actually did some pretty great performance work. The consistent thing I felt in the roughly four episodes worth of dubbed materia...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Yeah, that was a really nice surprise for me too! Can't remember if I mentioned this here (been talking about the dub in a couple different places :p), but while I generally like Grant's work as Asuka I feel like she's missing something that Miyamura's Asuka has. I call it 'impishness' but I'm not ...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

yeah I just felt like the new dub was meh. None of it was awful but I didn't think anyone of the VAs knocked it out of the park. I don't know if that was due to casting or directing or what but it just seemed uninspired. Asuka's voice especially seemed to be less energetic which bothered me. I don't...

Re: What directors would you like seeing tackle Evangelion in the future?

I feel like David Fincher could do a pretty good live action Evangelion movie. His work is great and he does a good job of being able to translate a feeling of loneliness or eeriness or alienation to film via visual story telling. Big fan of his work and he handles dark or odd subject matter really ...

Re: Music You Associate With Eva and Eva Characters

Lots of songs by Radiohead have the type of mood or atmosphere that I associate with Evangelion and a surprisingly a lot of lyrics fit with it too. How to Disappear Completely really has the vibe and lyrics that match Evangelion well. Going along with that, I saw an AMV of 2+2=5 but Radiohead paired...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Watched "Drag Me to Hell" the other night and it was pretty good imo. Sam Raimi really excels at character building and the editing in all of his films are great. The best edited scene in this film is probably the last scene of the film and I won't spoil the ending for those that haven't s...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

The Bluray box has the "Renewal"-type OA episodes, and the Archive DVD box has the real original episodes (hence their not being released in higher resolution). So all the main different versions are included somewhere (with the notable exception of the Reiquarium images from the pre-Rene...

I'm too lazy to pop mine in now, but I'm 90% sure the OA versions are only on Archives... One 5 second google search also turned up this Ah, I see that you are correct. My mistake. The Blu Ray set doesn't have the real original OA versions of the episodes. Only the Archives DVD set does. So as far ...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

I don't think there even are HD masters for the non-apostrophe version of Episodes 21-24, since they only appear on the Archives on Evangelion. I don't think they'll produce an HD version just for the purpose of having incomplete versions on Netflix. So yeah, I'm pretty sure they'll use the "d...

Most excited for the End of Evangelion release on Netflix tbh. I already have the original series on blu-ray, but getting any release of EoE other than the Manga Entertainment release is exciting

I watched the first Blade movie for the first time in years the other day because a friend of mine had told me it was terrible but I remembered liking it. So I rewatched it and I had totally forgotten how enjoyable it is. The digital effects are dated but other than that it's entertaining as hell. W...

Re: Progressive Knife

Just revisiting the cost of the Eva: while rewatching episode 2 during Gendo's meeting with the other 5 leader's including Kiel about instrumentality, they mention that the cost of the Eva was enough to bankrupt a nation. That's not much of a clarification in terms of exact figures but it does narro...
