"Evangelion 3.0+1.0 (Spoilers, Of course)"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Aug-15-21 AT 10:41 AM (EDT)
 
So I watched it earlier.

Now, I’ve never had a huge...LOVE of Evangelion. I was kinda meh on the original series aside from the fights, and never understood why people have such reverence for it. It was either confusing psychobabble nonsense or annoying how much shit people loaded onto Shinji then blamed him for not being handle all of the shit they piled on him. But I liked Rebuild 1 and 2! Shinji developed!

And I absolutely *loathed* Rebuild 3 for everything it did to Shinji after finally letting him *do something* in Rebuild 1 and 2, with people cheering him on and then....! He wakes up in 3 and everybody absolutely hates him and blames him for what they were yelling at him to do the whole time.

Anyway, the first HOUR of this movie is more of that, with a heaping dose of either just *ignoring him*, insulting him, assaulting him, or blaming him, because that’s how people heal from IMMENSE trauma I guess, then about 45 minutes of things that are actually pretty okay happen and then the last forty five minutes is pretentious psychoanalysis by a few characters about themselves and the feeling that Anno is likening himself to a sort of god of this world and he’s taking his toys and going home.

All in all, I give it a 3/10 for being *absofuckinglutely infuriating* or pretentious for a full two thirds of its runtime.

Maybe you’ll all get something out of it that I didn’t.


(I can’t wait to see how Super Robot Wars tries to reconcile that ending with things, because man, that’s some pretentious bullshit that you just can’t continue from, unlike how they did End of Evangelion back in Alpha 3.)

EDIT: PS, not sure if this should be here or but, it doesn’t feel like this is really *source material* so I dropped it here, maybe I’m wrong)
