This weekend was amazing as far as movies go. First, my friends and I watched a couple of Asian films including “Old Boy” based on a manga by the same name about… well, revenge, if you get down to it, but its definitely not for the faint of heart or the conservative. That said, it was a masterful piece of cinema.

Another masterful piece of cinema, though, was… I’ll give you a hint:

Is that a new Eva pilot?

So, if you haven’t yet realized, what I watched, on opening day, giddy with excitement and munching on the first real popcorn I’ve had in months, was none other than Rebuild of Evanglion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance, which, I must say, was one of the most masterful anime films I’ve ever seen. Also, fans of the original will be surprised that this isn’t just a simple retelling of a tired story. No, this is something different.

If you’d like to talk about this with me, please send me an email at zjheines@(nospam) and I’ll discuss the movie with you in full detail, but for those of you waiting for a shaky cam release, all I can say is that I salute you, and whenever the Blu-ray comes out in Japan, I’ll be the first one to have a watch party back in the states.

Because it’s just that beautiful.
