Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo ½

anno is a genius but my respect for him still doesn't stop me from hating this abomination with every single fiber of my being. eva 3.0 is the most frustrating film experience imaginable, it's a work with active condescension for its audience and for these characters, a script that's eager to disrupt and destroy each meaningful fiber of previous evangelion material (including its own prequels), not out of an attitude of genuine subversion or considered thematics, but out of sheer desperation to do anything new with the series. eva 3.0 is what it looks like when an artist's creativity runs totally dry, dissolving any spark of joy that this franchise once had in favor of loud incoherent spectacle and pointless cynical fanservice.
