Oh awesome - Another WOT fan! Not too many on the boards here from what I've gleamed. ASOIAF slightly outranks it for me as well. Aside from the grittier and more low fantasy-type setting, GRRM's use of plots/sub-plots, backstories and history is much more richly layered in my opinion, and ...

Tell me, does anyone know what's supposed to happen once the show catches up with the books? Does it suddenly go on hiatus for half a decade while Martin finishes the next installment? God I love the man, but he definitely takes his time making everything perfect. I will be incredibly depressed if h...

Really? I can see where some people might have taken offense with it. I mean, they took away Superman's heroic red underwear for no good reason... And it's true, most of the characters are fairly flat. But I thought Michael Shannon played an impeccable General Zod, and the final battle was a...

Marley and Me... I gave Owen Wilson a chance. I won't be doing that again. It's not often that a movie makes you a worse person for having seen it.

Just nothing that really interesting to me.
but my top movie this year was Pacific Rim


Same here, I absolutely loved Pacific Rim.

I was also quite fond of the new Superman movie and Anchorman 2 as well.

I just saw this movie a couple nights ago and I'm still sorting through my feelings for it. It's probably a good thing my last read-through of the Hobbit occurred over eight years ago, so I only remember the basic skeleton of the plot. It all just felt very... half-hearted, I suppose is the ...

I had the pleasure of playing Bully on the Wii, one of the rare occasions in which I actually enjoyed the whole motion-sensing schtick. It was a very well put-together game with one of the most entertaining hand-to-hand combat mechanics I've seen. I just wish Rockstar would have made GTA5's ...

This town's got a thousand movie theaters... Surely one of them will come through. It wouldn't be a life well-lived if I didn't get to see Eva on the big screen at least once.

Since I still haven't actually seen 3.0, it would be an extraordinary treat. Here's to hoping.

Final Fantasy Tactics did such a good job of revitalizing my waning interest in the medieval setting that I have once again found myself playing Oblivion. I suspect this will be my last attempt before finally moving on to Skyrim, which I've purposefully avoided until such a time that my fantasy ...

Three nagging ideas immediately come to mind when I think of what could have been: First, I was always a little disappointed that we lost Suzuhara during his first sortie, even though it made for a very poignant episode. For once, it would have been nice to see an alpha male behind the wheel of an e...

I cant let my younger brother watch it hes too young (11) and stupid to understand he`d end up just snitching on me and get Mom to ban the show Precisely the age I was when I first came across the show. If he's anything like me, he'll thank you for introducing him to the most fun-to...

Oooh, Eva dreams are always a treat. A few months ago I had one of my unfortunate zombie dreams, as I often do. These encounters usually end with me getting caught and devoured, but on this particular occasion I had an armored suit identical to Unit 01. It was remarkably liberating stomping around a...

Like the poster before me, and like so many other American viewers, my first taste of Eva was during Toonami's initial airing of the show in 2003. Until that point, I had grown up on a steady diet of Robotech, Voltron, and eleven different flavors of Gundam. Evangelion promptly shot to the top of th...

I recently reread The Demon Ororon by Mizuki Hakase for the umpteenth time. Good memories. I tried so hard to copy her art style back in middle school. I could definitely use a fresh series, though. The last few I tried to get into didn't hold my interest for too long. It helps that Ororon is so...

You know you're obsessed when you have an entire spiral notebook filled with JUST alternate Progressive Knife designs... Nevermind the box in your closet filled with notebooks dedicated to everything else Eva-related.
