In the Godzilla movies, it was usually monster vs monster action with humans just being fodder.  Evangelion focuses on a teenage boy recruited by an organization named NERV to control a giant cyborg called an Evangelion to fight monstrous beings known as Angels. The show takes place largely in a futuristic Tokyo years after a worldwide catastrophe. It also centers around other Evangelion pilots and members of NERV as they try to prevent another catastrophe.
 
Tell me which of those two sounds more like PR.


Because evangelion is the only mechs vs monsters anime there is...

If anything I'd think stuff like robotech influenced him more aswell as the whole kaiju genre.

I don't think he'd be ashamed to admit if evangelion was an influence. Never seen it myself though so who knows.

The Wolverine.

 

I liked it well enough. I was surprised by how much of the movie Famke Janssen was actually in; I thought Jean would pop up in one quick dream sequence and then disappear but she was around for quite a while. From the trailers I also thought Yukio was going to end up being an annyoing sidekick but, well, I thought she stole the show. Was pleasantly surprised. 

 

The opening in WWII was pretty intense too, that might be my favorite scene. I do wish they would have made Logan mumble something along the lines of "Wait 'til Victor hears about this." just because Origins made it seem like they were inseparable during the various wars. Felt odd not to hear a mention, but I understand they wanted to separate this movie from the first one.

 

I am, however, bummed about

Glengarry Glen Ross - Can't believe it took me this long to watch this one, a timeless movie. All the actors and the dialogue in this are awesome, shame they don't make them like this much these days. Baldwin, needless to say was amazing in his 10 minutes and as a fan of Pacino can't believe I never watched this one.

I read the play during school, and man everybody is such a effin' dick, but then again they were a boiler room enterprise.

 

I stayed up and watched the French Connection II last night. Obviously it wasn't as good as the original, but it's because of the most memorable scene of Hackman chasing a train through the BMT line through Bensonhurst.  It showcased Paris quite well, from the grimy underbelly to the magnifique girls at the beach. I'd say it was also grosser than the last one, considering that they made Popeye a drug addict, and they had to show his recovery.

There are no teenage boys in Pacific Rim.

 

Godzilla movies do have robots piloted by humans (Mechagodzilla, Moguera, Mecha King Ghidorah), plus there are other giant monster movies that aren't Godzilla related that have such things as well. Even King Kong has a robot version that fights him. 

 

I won't say there isn't the possibility of a little Evangelion inspiration being in it, because there probably is, but there's just as much Evangelion as there is Power Rangers in it. The biggest inspiration is giant monsters movies, I say this because Del Toro himself said it's a tribute to giant monster movies.

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Heathers - 3.5/5 The first half is better than the last half, a bit too over the top the last quarter. Winona Ryder is great and Christian Slater very good.

Evangelion was human psyche evaulation first and foremost and then a a giant humanoids versus giant humanoid (as proven with both the Angel's and EVA's being 99.99% human and both having souls) in a faaaaaaaaaaaar distant second. Hell, might even have religion in second if we're counting those movies and the ending as well. I Remember Shinji's nonstop whining about not having a place in the world more then I do the EVA's smashing shit.

The Searchers

 

John Wayne is fucking awesome. He's a got a real larger than life persona and the movie is really good. There are the Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Westerns (Good, The Bad, and the Ugly) and then there are John Wayne Classic Westerns (Rio Bravo, The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance). In the two films I've seen Wayne in, this and Liberty Vallance, he's surprisingly been showcased himself as being adept at playing flawed individuals. I expected something along the lines of an invincible Hulk Hogan but that hasn't been the case. 

 

The film itself is about a young girl whose been stolen by a group of rogue Comanche Native Americans and Wayne and a group of others trying to get her back. The story isn't as straightforward as it sounds in that there are a number of twists and turns make this a very, very entertaining affair. I definitely suggest checking it out. It's gorgeous!

Yup. I'd probably agree, The Collection is a little less horror and more actiony.

Flashpoint Paradox is my new favorite of the bunch, though Batman: Under the Red Hood is still a VERY close second. Superman Unbound is great too, and although it feels rushed in some parts, All-Star Superman is good as well.

Finally saw Avatar. Looks great and the story was okay. Not as good as Cameron's The Abyss and the Terminator movies, but not a waste of time either.

 

Watching Tokyo Drift over the weekend.

Evil Dead II. Very gross, and darkly funny.  It seemed more like a remake of the original, kinda like what we see decades apart these days, but considering the timespan is shorter, I guess it's a revisioning and a jumping off point for Army of Darkness. I guess I could have more fun with the third movie, considering the first two weren't exactly my cup of tea.

I was too young to watch it when it came out but recently watched it on tv and as good as it may have been back in the day or is to some people, I found the film to be laughable. Which is why I liked the remake.

 

Though Army of Darkness was awesome.

Evil Dead 2 is my favorite horror movie of all time, although it's definitely horror comedy.  I was also too young when the first 2 were released, but my understanding was that the first didn't go over too well with people so Raimi pretty much remade it with Evil Dead 2 being a different kind of horror movie.

School Ties - 3.25/5 Pretty good concept, execution slightly off, had more potential. Still unique enough from most movies of it's type.
