Oh? What problem do you find with the pacing? I've found it really steadfast ride all in all. First couple of episodes felt a little choppy to me in how they tried to blend retakes of scenes from the original series with introductions to the new characters, etc., but since then it's picked ...

A Tree of Palme: Two hours of Salvador Dali's Pinocchio , 20 minutes of Akira . Phallic symbols everywhere. An arthouse endurance test that feels thrice as long as its running time. Holy shit, someone else has watched this? Agreed 100% on the description, though I have to say I really really li...

@ Azathoth : like I said, what happened at the beginning of the movie was pretty much inevitable, there was simply too much information WILLE had to give him in too little time before Mark.09 appeared. Nah, they're really not obliged to give him any information at all. Shinji's not a part o...

^ He's saying that "a quatre mains" is a direction that follows the name of a song, rather than the name of any given song per se. Unfortunately the name of the song in Q is "Quatre Mains (a quatre mains)" because Shiro Sagisu is an asshat. On topic, I like the openin...

An excuse. It lets them do what they wanted to do anyway. Anything to back this up? because as far as I can tell the river runs the opposite direction to the one you say it does. WILLE needs the power to kill god; to that end they build Wunder. They need a source of (infinite-ish) power for...

Because, despite the haters' words to the contrary, they honestly cared about the kid. The newbies don't know him from Adam, but Misato, Asuka, and the old bridge crew do and they're not okay with leaving him to rot. My guess is they've been waiting for the opportunity to get him ba...

Cold hard logic means you lie like a motherfucker to keep this dangerous loose cannon from going off the rails -- not tell the truths most damaging to that end first time you open your mouth. For the record, the original "ten minutes in the shower /a/non" post . Yeah, nah, that post is pr...

What happened to these recent batch of Yamato 2199 episodes? It's like their animation budget tripled. Some of it is like high budget movie quality. orly? I meant to follow 2199 but real life distracted me before I got more than a few eps in, and now that I pick it back up I'm pretty impres...

Fun "turn off your brain and enjoy" movie! Loved the homage to Mecha and Kaijuu genres. Oh, (not reading 18+ pages right now) supposedly del Toro hasn't even seen Eva. Pacific Rim was more of a nod to '60's and '70's anime/movies. This was also the feeling I go...

Nocturnus were always okay to good but after they kicked out the frontman there's not really any reason to care about the remainder of them; plenty of other people have done death metal with goofy synths since them and a lot of them have done it better.

total zzzz of a season in every respect except for Rozen Maiden which will no doubt wake me from my slumber for one episode or so before its puny promise is crushed beneath the overbearing engorgement of my...expectations.

Cosmopolis . This rules. Clearly Cronenberg watched Twilight several times and concluded that there was no man more qualified than Robert Pattinson to realize one of DeLillo's monstrous machine men; that casting is about a thousand times more inspired than the rest of the film, which is not to ...

I watched the first two episodes a while back. It wasn't aggressively bad but i didn't find much about it memorable; am still waiting for another good fantasy mecha series to chase Escaflowne.
