I am not impressed with how pathetic of a job Anno did with this show. How he let us all down, tumbling down, and there is no way that 4.0 is going to make up for this atrocious crap. It's nothing but random shit flying across the screen!

You Can (Not) Redo? More like you (Should) redo.



How about "You Can (Not) Reboot"? I'd stick to the original show.

I feel 3.33 is where Anno just lost whatever was left of his motivation or caring for this story and his audience. So much wrong with so much of this movie. Even if Shinji accidentally caused the 3.5 impact, the treatment of him does not make sense, considering they put him in the damn robot, and also he was told to stop the angel at all costs...

Exactly. It ended as a big 'fuck you' to the fans that I absolutely loved. Anno is a master troll and astounding director.

The movie is pretty meh overall.

I had a better opinion after a second watching when I could pick up more on things and I can better appreciate Shinji's continued battle with self-hatred and Kaworu representing a co-dependent relationship that still won't fix Shinji's problems. So I didn't mind his character taking apparent steps back because the reality is he's only thought he's taken steps forward when he actually hasn't.

But the movie still is just a mess of execution and just falls flat especially compared to 2.0

I mean it's head pounding against the wall stupid when the entire situation in the movie could be avoided if someone had an adult conversation for a few minutes with Shinji who is clearly confused and has no idea what's going on and explained the situation and brought him up to speed why he shouldn't pilot Eva or go back to NERV. And lo and behold he bounces to a familiar face once he has a chance because everyone is being a jerk to him.

I'm going with a theme here: It's probably terrifying to see evangelion without the 'wow I'm 15 and it's sexy and I haven't seen anime before!' filter.

Seemed about the same as the old one to me.

I'm in the quietly contented corner bemusedly watching the whippersnappers holler themselves blue.

Wish they'd just bottle all that energy and give it to me.
