Thoughts on: Hideaki Anno’s ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ (eps 13-16)
These next four episodes are split two ways again, 13 and 15 seem to be interested in drilling down into objective reality, 14 and 16 go in the exact opposite direction, interrogating these character’s subjectivity. It feels odd to describe them out of order like this, but it’s really the only way that writing like…
Thoughts on Hideaki Anno’s ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ (eps 9-12)
Nine episodes in and it seems like things have finally settled down into a good rhythm, although I’m assured by reputation that it’ll be shaken up before too long.
Thoughts on Hideaki Anno’s ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ (eps 5-8)
I guess I basically decided to cover these episodes in blocks of four because I got to the end of the fourth and decided it was such an amazing piece of filmmaking that I had to write about it.
Thom Yorke & Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Anima’: A review
Thom Yorke has one of the best faces. I’ve kinda known this since discovering Radiohead as a teenager (eugh, I hate that. Yes, in 2008 I discovered one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists, as though it weren’t a cool English teacher who recommended them to me.)
Thoughts on Hideaki Anno’s ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion (eps 1-4)
So this is a show with a main character who is suicidally depressed. It’s confirmed at episode four, but the whole thing’s been building to that point.
Netflix’s ‘Love Death & Robots: The Secret War’ Review

Maybe i’m just exhausted, Netflix has just uploaded Neon Genesis: Evangelion and I kinda just wanna get this…
Netflix’s ‘Love, Death & Robots: Alternate Histories’ Review
Okay, this one is an extended six riffs on the same joke none of which are funny. Like, oh my god it’s so fucking bad.
Netflix’s ‘Love, Death & Robots: Ice Age’ Review
Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Topher Grace are between them charming enough to make me almost forget that this is a live action adaptation of a Treehouse of Horror segment. Yeah, I guess when series creator Tim Miller gets to make his own episode and can call in his famous friends the format gets to be…
Netflix’s ‘Love, Death & Robots: Blindspot’ Review
After one episode that just about pushed enough past the realm of ‘okay’ that I actually struggled to write about it, Love, Death & Robots returns back to its core content. Execrable garbage.
Netflix’s ‘Love Death & Robots: Zima Blue’ Review
I was watching and then reviewing all of these a while ago but had to stop here because it broke me. It’s the first one of these shorts to actually be good, and I didn’t quite know how to deal with that.
