Not much really, just happy that the review and analysis finally came out. I still dislike evangelion, but I'm happy Bennett was able to make peace with it and have a thorough discussion. This is the second part, and the first part I posted back a few months ago. He was late on the video cuz he had a lot of stuff going on. I will say that he goes for deep dive for a Anno and his history with Gainax. It does get dark (the first part is actually a little darker), but not all is doom and gloom. It does show all the bull crap that comes with the anime industry in the behind scenes. I'm just glad those corrupt and Gainax are gone now. If you have not watched the first part, I recommend you watch it now, and then later go to the part two. Keep in mind both videos are about an hour and 45 minutes.So how do you rate it? Or do you have any point to discuss?
You are correct.Short Review: Its good shit.
To what may be my benefit here I am not a LOTR fan.
Elves originated in Middle-earth as a single race; during the "biblical" portion of the story they're led in a massive exodus towards Valinor, which is where the show opens (with little Galadriel being bullied for no reason). But large contingents of Elves branched off during that exodus and chose to remain in Middle-earth, basically becoming their own separate race. When the other Elves returned from Valinor they committed genocide on the way, which is why they're not allowed to return to Valinor.I wasn't aware Elves were in middle earth unwillingly, that they started out more as a stationed army than a race living side by side with humans.
It doesn't help that the suit so very clearly does not fit her impossibly large body. Who even makes suits that big? I'd imagine clothing is one of the hardest things to animated, so I was wondering why they made the decision to have her wear something loose and flowy instead of fitted.Throughout this episode She-Hulk is wearing a business suit and theres this painful uncanny valley effect where her suit looks like rubber it doesn't really move organically or shift with the light.
Yeah, no, that's exactly what Song of Ice and Fire is.The House of the Dragons ep2
So again, I've never seen a single episode of GoT. I assumed it was a dark fantasy show because you have giants and dragons and people named Sansa and Sersi. What I'm getting from Dragon House is soap opera stuff (teen girl resents dad/dad wants to remarry/uncle wants dad's job/cousins fucking each other/everybody wants somebody out of the way for some selfish reason).
I haven’t seen the show, don’t plan on watching it either, but I have to ask- if the pirates retreat into beachside caves, can’t the dragons just hose the caves down with fire and burn away the oxygen?The House of Dragons ep3
How dumb was Game of Thrones about its battles?
Here it takes 3 years for the combined forces of two powerful feudal lords, including 2 fucking dragons and the full force of what I gather is meant to be the the most impressive armada in the world, to take over a shitty beach that's being guarded by what appears to be only a few hundred pirates. If you told me this was a send-up of the Battle of Thermopylae I'd remind you that lasted for 3 days, not 3 years, and there's no real geographical advantage shown in House of the Dragons either (nothing that would hold up the largest army in the world and their two god mode dragons anyway). Yes, the pirates tend to retreat into the caves by the beach. So what? Get in there and fuck em up.
By the end of the episode you have a single grown man slowly zig-zagging around sand in 60 pounds of heavy plate armor and a hundred archers aiming from above can't land a single fatal hit on the dude even though there're dozens if not hundreds of them and have been doing this for 3 years.
You try flying that theory over at r/houseofthedragon and see how they receive it. But yes, that was my first thought. It's not like they're dealing with a grand underground kingdom, it's just a bunch of pirates hoveled in the side of a cliff wide open to attack.I haven’t seen the show, don’t plan on watching it either, but I have to ask- if the pirates retreat into beachside caves, can’t the dragons just hose the caves down with fire and burn away the oxygen?
I’m pretty sure that’s how the US forces cleared bunkers with in the Pacific during WWII.
It’s more than likely because the people writing this stuff are basically comprised of the underlined parts above. I was curious about the show but now I’m not so sure I want to suffer that much in the couple hours of relaxing time available, and before bed no less.Its a very odd show with a very weird tone. Like we have She-Hulk literally making light of Hulk's depression and suicide attempt and losing the woman he loved and being enslaved for years and saying she deals with more pain and anger on a daily basis than he's done in his whole life because...sometimes her shoes don't fit. And its like wow, okay. Either women are completely shallow and self-absorbed to the point of emotional blindness, or women have the emotional maturity of a toddler and something as small as shoes that don't fit is enough to completely overwhelm them.
Either way She-Hulk has some very ugly things to say about women and how they fit in a superhero world.

I look forward to being disappointed eventually either way!
