Oh, come on, Tribble, it's clearly a joke. Nobody talks like that. I realized that the moment I read "Obummer". I figured "CG Angelina Jolie" was the biggest tell, myself. vvv Good thing this isn't "practical, reasonable discourse", but a website devoted to arg...

Man, it sure does suck how when people can't be bothered to come up with a logical, sensible argument, they fall back to appealing to emotion and/or shaming those they don't agree with.

That was brilliant. Also, it's not a penis-surrogate - it is an assault-tactical-camo-penis-manacer-surrogate. Get it right, libtard. Sounds tacticool, bronservative. Fixed that for you. Speaking of insecurities, that sure was a pointlessly rude and defensive response to someone making a joke a...

I own a 12 gauge. Somewhere atop his skull throne, Evil Emperor Obummer is quaking in his black-leather boots, his foul spawn the Military-Industrial Complex quivering in terror of your mighty penis-surrogate, clinging to the leg of its ungodly father, as if Grendel fleeing armless to his Dam (...

I doubt if there is, or needs to be, an in-universe explanation for why Kaworu possesses out-of-universe knowledge. He always does - in ep24 he's able to perfectly characterize Shinji after knowing him for like a day, for god's sake. If he wasn't making inexplicably accurate and cryptic ...

Yes, that's definitely another thing that the scene accomplishes. Shinji has gotten quite used to having Rei II with him after fourteen years of being "all right like this" and after Wille give him birth, he feels like he was ripped from her arms, which for all we know he was. She'...

That's all implying he saw the things as the watcher did when he merged with Rei let alone know what was really happening with him. Nah, I just don't see it. What on earth do you think that scene depicts, if not how Shinji perceives the fusion of Rei into 01? Honest question here, I really ...

@ Az : about the first instance of the "you're clueless" that was quite the contrary : every objective fact was saying that Misato was lying to him : - "14 years have passed" : but Asuka looks exactly the same, and what proves me that this chick is really Toji's sister 1...

Only God Forgives . This movie was the tits and I want to watch it again wearing headphones - even the background noise is fucking symphonic. Visually it's just one astounding tableau after another, plotwise it's a grotesque death spiral of incest and suicide. Gosling's protagonist is r...

You're right that the accusations of cluelessness are parallel: in both cases Shinji establishes a prejudicial view of the situation without any especially strong evidence to support it ("I saved Rei"/"If I use two spears I can fix the world") and when evidence that s...

I, Claudius. I watched this as a kid and had pretty fragmentary memories of it, but it holds up quite well. Brian Blessed's Augustus Octavian and Sian Phillips' Livia are absolutely priceless together.

Yeah, thanks for posting it. I was so engrossed in it last night I forgot to return to this thread...at any rate, it hammers about a thousand fucking nails into the coffin of the notion that Eva is 100% the product of Anno, and not just because Tsurumaki read Shinji differently than Anno did.

The people in the show don't have those traits. Shinji is obstinate and acts to please others rather than out of any sort of principle, and Misato fights for revenge and out of desperation (rather pointedly avoiding reason and common sense in the process). IMO the show is pretty consist...

I think Tsurumaki mentions in the 2.22 CRC that he always read Shinji as a doormat until Anno told him "no, Shinji's very stubborn and won't do things he doesn't want to". Unfortunately I've forgotten pretty much all the context of this, mostly I only remember it because he...

If he really made the time skip because people misinterpreted Shinji's actions at the end of the movie, then he was really clumsy : it's pretty hard to feels Shinji as a self absorbed asshole when he didn't had any idea that 3I was being triggered by trying to save Rei, hell he didn'...

Probably because Asuka, who did not witness Shinji's transformation or Unit 01's pseudo-ascension at all, has less reason to think of Shinji as gone. And as I've already said in this thread, I feel it's implicit that Asuka, unlike the rest of WILLE, felt that recovering Shinji should...

Oh, right. Jesus, is there anything in this movie that Mari DOESN'T claim is some Adamic shit trying to fuck with her? Also, why would one of the Adams not have an AT field? And why is it being constructed (armored? processed? confined?) inside a gigantic artificial womb?
