He didn't endear himself too much with the crowd when he implied Ireland was a part of the UK.

Anyway Summer Wars is quite a good family film. Quite funny (especially in the first half of the film). But I can't really see why it's getting so much praise. Don't get me wrong, it's really good but it's not the second coming (perhaps I expected too much or it's that I've crap taste).

Gundam Unicorn episode 1 (or as it kept being referred to as My Little Gundam) was a one hour introduction to a new conflict in the universal century. A teen takes control of mobile suit to save some random girl, and is somehow exceptionally good at beating experienced professional soldiers. Didn't think much of it. I'm getting sick of over angsty teens who are somehow blessed with gods gift in piloting robots. That said the show did have someone getting shot in the face, and it was in HD so it wasn't all bad.

Both Gundam and Summer Wars (indeed everything else the whole weekend) were in subtitles. I'll talk about Eva later.

Finally, I've seen Eva 1.11 and 2.0.

First my old man complaint, WAY TOO BLOODY LOUD! Some of the battle scenes in eva 2 were ear bleedingly loud (good, but LOUD).

I'd hate to have seen Eva 1.0, cos 1.11 is pretty sodding gloomy during the 1st battle.

Other than that. :thumb: :thumb:

All very enjoyable and Shinji is still a whiny waste of skin. :lol:

Only problem now, is that it'll be 2-3 sodding years until part 3 comes out over here. :shock:

Also, there's no Cruel Angel Thesis or Fry me to the Moon. :wink:

You forgot the looney yank who had been awake too long :)

1.11 looked great, it looks like it was from the 4k digital masters. 2.0 was a film master and was scratched to buggery in places. And as Kodamie says they were tooooo loud!!!!

2.0 was a lot different to how I'd expected it to be, a good thing IMO but after 2 films there are a lot of details left un-resolved. I think it confused my little sis a bit.
