I think he means that Speilberg's Dreamworks studio made a sequel to Shrek.  As for the Transformers movie, I think John P's just hallucinating or something.

Well, anyways, even though the movie is announced, that doesn't mean its going to be released.  In fact, I would prefer for it not to be released.  Let the show remain how it is...Saturday cartoons transformed into live action suck as a rule.

I agree.  If I wanted to see a Transformers movie, I'd just rent the one that already exists.

Excuse me?  I believe that my exact words were:

It's not the name changes or the way that the evas look that will make ths movie suck. The real reason that it will suck is because, instead of 14-year-old kids, the eva pilots will be played by adult actors, thus defeating the entire purpose of the story. All of the psychological aspects will likely be removed, and the movie will end up being about giant robots fighting giant monsters, which is not at all what Eva is about.

However, as much as a live-action Eva movie would suck, ruining the Transformers with crappy CGI would be a thousand times worse.  Whoever is responsible for this should be sharing a suite in Hell with the people who made that awful American Godzilla movie.

Is Speilberg producing the Transformers movie?

If not, half my point is valid.

IMDb lists it as being produced by DreamWorks SKG.

...which Speilberg is a part of.

But yeah, I agree with David A on this one.  IF you want a TF movie, why not just rent the original?  I don't think TF is as popular as many believe to hold its own movie in 2007.  It has a strong niche audience, but that's it.  Besides, the best part of the show was the robots, not the stupid humans that hung around with them.  If you have to remake it, just make it a standard 2-D cartoon.

And the Evangelion movie frightens me.  It's possible, although unlikely, that they'll find good 14-16 year old actors for the roles.  Even then, most of the good stuff will be edited out because of pressure by the MPAA.  You can't show teenagers screwing, thinking about screwing, or getting emotionally scarred anymore.

Do you really think that there's a bigger audience for a live-action Eva movie than there is for a live-action Transformers movie?  Lots of people remember the Transformers from when they were kids, but only anime fans care about Eva (and most of them don't want to see a live-action bastardization of Eva).

Also, what's this about not showing teenagers screwing or thinking about screwing?  That's all that teenagers do in movies and on TV.

1. An Evangelion movie is obscure enough to make it in a large audience, possibly.  People already know of TF, whether they still care about it is something else entirely.  TF has a reputation for being '80s, while Evangelion has almost no reputation - most people would think of it as an original idea.  That would help the promotional aspect; instead of being a movie for "nerds," it could be pushed to all groups.

2. There's a difference between the sex in Evangelion and the sex in, say, American Pie. In AP, and most other films about teen sex, sex is seen as comedic and zany.  In Evangelion, the sexual aspect is more raw and mature.  The closest film comparison I can think of is the implied subtext between Jean Reno and Natalie Portman in Leon.  Do you really think the general American public would support that?

I don't think that most people would think of it as an original idea.  Most people would probably think of it as a rip-off of the Power Rangers.

There are film versions of Lolita.  People apparently watch those.

The Kubrick version of Lolita was played comedically.  Evangelion won't be.

Will this film take from the series and the Ending Movie? If so, I can see what Evan says about the sex with old man Paedophile Gendo's amazing hand trick. The series would be fine, but a movie about the animated movie. The normal movie is already a mind fuck.

Back on topic, I'm sure everyone hates Rupert Murdoch on PEEL?
