Stop it with Evangelion

You know what happens Friday?  Pacific Rim happens Friday.  For those of you who don’t know what Pacific Rim is…you need to get right with the Lord or something, because seriously?  Check this s#!t out:

And everybody’s talking about, because why wouldn’t they be!  It looks awesome.  But the one complaint I have is that everybody – and I mean EVERYBODY – seems to be comparing to Neon Genesis Evangelion.  And if you don’t know what Evangelion is…then you need to stop playing games because you don’t need be telling them lies that you don’t know what Eva is.  Google it and buy some DVDs.  That’s like not knowing the plot of Star Wars; it’s 2013.  Get your act together.

If Pacific Rim is derivative of any classic mecha series, it’s not Evangelion; it’s the Power Rangers.  It’s a big-budget, ‘grown-up’ version of Powers Rangers.  I don’t understand why Evangelion’s even beginning to come into the discussion.  So quit it!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to count the seconds until the midnight showing Thursday.
