Logic's Expectations: Rebuild of Evangelion 4.0Logic's Expectations: Rebuild of Evangelion 4.0 by Thaeonblade
To be perfectly blunt, I'm certain that this movie will suck.
Normally, I'm the guy who won't bash an unreleased product and will wait and see before I give a final opinion on if it's good or bad. I went into Soul Calibur V assuming that it would be awesome because previous games in the Soul Calibur series were awesome. I wasn't a huge Final Fantasy fan, but I didn't go from Final Fantasy XII into Final Fantasy XIII expecting the latter to suck, especially since I thought XII was great. I also didn't go into Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 expecting it to suck after the immensely satisfying experience that I had watching Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0...
Considering my views on Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0, I believe that its fair to go ahead and call the final Rebuild movie a dud.
However, I want you to understand that I didn't come to this assumption lightly and I actually tried to pick at straws and potential ways that this next installment could in fact be good. But Rebuild 3.0 left such a mess

8) The End of the Not-Evangelion Movie
So Shinji and his new boyfriend pilot Eva Unit 13 down to Central Dogma escorted by Rei Q in Unit 9. Shinji makes an offhand remark about Rei and why she can't pilot to which Kawaoru replies that Rei Q doesn't have a soul and therefore can't synchronize with the eva.
Then how can she synchronize with her eva? How did she survive when Mari blew off her eva's head? Wouldn't the nervous shock kill her? Why can't it produce an AT Field? How is it still functional when it's missing a head? Then they come down and find Unit 6 and SEELE had stored the 12th Angel inside of it. Why would you do that? The Angels are the enemy right? Why wouldn't you outright destroy them? Why waste a perfectly good eva just store one? You know that an angel possessed an eva and used it to try and destroy humanity right? How do you know that this 12th angel won't do the same? When did you even capture it? Did you use an artificial saucer-e

5) The Best and Worst Part of the Movie
So after escaping Willie, Rei Q takes Shinji back to Nerv where Gendo immediately tells him that he'll pilot another eva and Shinji more or less complies because he never tries to escape despite the utter lack of security around the exits or the hangers. Seriously, what was stopping Shinji from hijacking Unit 09 and leaving?
That aside, the only people that Shinji will interact with for the main duration of the 2nd Act will be Rei Q, who Shinji still believes to be "his Rei" and Kawaoru with who Shinji forms a strong bond with as best demonstrated by the famous piano duet scene. Honestly, the relationship between Shinji and Kawaoru is the best part of the entire movie and even better than how it was portrayed in the anime. You could make an argument on whether this is a romantic relationship or just a really strong friendship, but I'd enjoy it either way.
Despite clearly being an Angel, Kawaoru isn't out for Shinj'
Logic's Insight: Rebuild of Evangelion 3.33 1/3Logic's Insight: Rebuild of Evangelion 3.33 1/3 by Thaeonblade
Rebuild of Evangelion 3.33 is a movie that beautifully executes narrative suicide.
How else could you take the Barrel of Miyazaki that the first two Rebuild films had set up and turn out this turd salad? Why did Hideki Anno completely change the entire premise of the series right at the halfway point? Granted, things were already going off the rails with the ending to 2.22, but no one thought that 3.33 would be such a disaster.
Not in the mindscrew way of a disaster, fans have come to expect that type of material from legendary anime director Hideki Anno. But the type of disaster that could be best equated with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
For context, let me give you a brief synopsis of the first two Rebuild films.
1) The First Two Rebuild Films
The Rebuild movies are an updated, rewritten and retooled retelling of the classic anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion. They had the same characters, same setting, same mecha, same enemy, same plot, same story and...yeah...at first g
