buntz: No way they use GLaDOS in this movie and NOT have it mean something. It's TOO distinctive a voice to have it just be "a voice"It would be like having Darth Vader's voice, WITH the breathing, as another voice over. It's too iconic to be coincidence.I say this movie is a precursor, and it's all part of the same universe? Maybe now we know what Cave Johnson was doing all this testing for? To fight monsters?
MisatoNERV: Antimatter: DaStompa: Erix: NeoCortex42: Oafmeel: [i649.photobucket.com image 320x181]does it better./screams at his dad instead of BWAAAAARRRRRRR/hotThat's what we need, entire episodes of "I mustn't run away. I mustn't run away. I mustn't run away..."/Thank goodness Rebuild of Eva has a more tolerable ShinjiGreat series, but man, that kid was the most intolerable whiney biatch (I know that was kind of the point, but damn did it get grating).For what its worth (nothing i guess), I didn't like the lack of buildup and total mental breakdown after his eva goes bezerk and crushes the other eva's pilot plug thing in the re-doHe doesn't get the chance, but he still goes nuts and threatens his father and Nerv HQ. The fight against that Eva, and the fight against the next angel are far more brutal affairs in the re-do.Also, Mari's english voice is absolutely awesome, and her fights were fun as hell.Shinji isn't really whiny to me, hes a 14 year old who honestly wants to be anywhere but in the cockpit of a 30 story weapon of mass destruction fighting a war he knows pretty much nothing about. It's like having a jr high student storm the beaches of Normandy without prior knowledge of the Nazi war machine.Best part of the remakes is the stronger focus on Rei and Shinji in the films. Their relationship takes center stage, as far as character interactions goes.This. It's what made the characters in shiatty series like Gundam Wing look like psychopaths. No sane fourteen year old would relish killing.
kronicfeld: If Idris Elba and Del Toro weren't attached, everyone would be calling this Battleship 2. The trailer inspires no confidence.
hubiestubert: Seriously. He puts out a movie, I'm in. He's one of only a few directors that I will see anything by him. Every one of his movies, has been either an enormous amount of fun, or so bittersweet and moving, and often combinations of both, that I've put them on my MUST SEE list. That means, channel surfing, I will stop on his stuff, no matter what. I'm in. All in.
crypticsatellite: I'm surprised they're using the voice of GLaDOS.Unless, there's an Aperture connection...
