Are you ready for Urobuchi to win an Oscar?
hah, I wish.
Will he win if we believe hard enough?
The old guys from academy like suffering or cute grils? If yes, maybe.
I just want him to win for all the butthurt it would produce.
Can I make this my wish for become a magical girl?
If Rebellion wins (it won't) Shinbo will get the Oscar, not Urobuchi.
They like suffering.
They don't like cute girls.
Did I hear a wish?
When he got down from the stage, Shinbo would probably just ask the person nearest him if he wanted to trade the statue for 30 bucks.
The team would win it
is madoka the only thing nominated in that category thats not 3DPD?
No, there is a lot of animated shit. You know, like the 2D animation America does like Shrek. But these are much worse than Shrek.
No, the fucking director wins it.
Absolute dogshit power rankings.
Homura should be one, Kyouko two, Madoka four.
no Homura wins it
People honestly think Rebellion will win an Oscar? Is that a joke?
Gen would win it. Shinbo would receive it.
Homura is 2D, she can't win a 3D award.
That's not how it works. The director wins the award. I belongs to him. That's it.
Havent seen the oscars in a few years but Im pretty sure that the whole team goes up to the podium and accepts the award when a film wins in the animated feature category
When are the nomination results again? Tomorrow?
>I belongs to him
I'm pretty sure the entire 100+ team doesn't go up on stage, anon.
Are you telling Homura what she can and cannot do?
Those who worked on the film that are actually at the awards I mean
>I belongs to him.
I've heard of director loyalty but thats a bit extreme anon
Yes. Homura cannot become 3D to accept the award. Even if Saito somehow wills it.
Madoka doesn't have a shot compared to stiff competition like The Croods, Free Birds, and Pixar's name on something. Don't be delusional.
>I belongs to him.
Is Shinbo you'r waifu?
I fucking hate CG
Nominations announced at 5:30 a.m. PST (13:30 UTC) (8:30 a.m. EST) at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater
From le wiki
Odds are Madoka doesn't even get nominated. Frozen will win, judging by how it's on its, uh, 165th General on /co/
I can tell isn't even ironic.
>it's on its, uh, 165th General on /co/
so it has that big of a following huh?
seemed like a pretty meh movie me
>165th General on /co/
I'm sure that number is an exaggeration, but what.
I think he meant that Shinbo would get the award, but that Rebellion would win more due to Urobuchi's writing than Shinbo's direction.
Just checked, it's the 169th.
So, what time in GMT + 10?
Do they just...not have anything to talk about over there?
I can assure you Rebellion has had more threads than that which can be considered "generals" by now.
Butcherfags don't really believe that Madoka is good because of Butcher, do they?
I'm hoping Studio Ghibli would win.
That would put a sock in Abe and his ilk.
I guess not. They don't get even near as much new content as we do.
Yeah but we don't bother to keep track of them. Also /a/ has a much larger population.
Judges are only required to view 80% of submitted material in the animation category, meaning they will likely avoid subtitled films or sequels.
Even if it was the original series up for nominee, Madoka probably would just get ignored.
The Oscars are a largely American circlejerk. Anything not too popular in America has no shot.
Is that movie good? I remember 2 years ago I watched some film about Santa Claus and some holiday nerds and it was so shit I gave up on watching cg movies since then.
I think that year was filled with pure shit, except some film about witches and bullying which I liked
There's a difference between "general discussion threads" and "numbered/chained generals".
>Judges are only required to view 80% of submitted material in the animation category
What? That doesn't even make sense. How can you judge if you haven't watched them all?
>don't bother to keep track of them
Because people would shitpost you off the board if you tried to give each thread a number. Doesn't mean we haven't had fucking thousands of them. So why are you acting like it's a big deal?
We just have to bank on the fact they might be tired of CGI kids movies and checked out the dokes because it looked more interesting. Although its hollywood jews so I'm not getting my hopes up.
can't we rig it
>Hey /frz/. How are you all doing tonight?
>Earlier I realized I actually haven't watched Let It Go in awhile, though I listen to the song every day.
>>Watching Let It Go
>>Suddenly mom busts into room
>>blah blah blah
>>As she leaves, "You're in love with Elsa!"
>>Want to "jokingly" say yes, but embarrassed as fuck
>>Only manage to hum out "Mmhm"
>>Door closes and she probably didn't even hear me anyway
Jesus, and I thought /a/ was autistic as it was.
Ask the oscars.
>A Chairperson, appointed by the Academy President, shall head one or more Animated Feature Film Award Screening Committee(s). An invitational letter will be sent from the Chairperson to a list of active and life Academy members requesting their participation. Those serving on the committee(s) will be required to see 80 percent of the submitted eligible films at meetings of the committee(s) or in a theatrical setting. Viewing Animated Feature Film entries on DVD or by streaming will NOT qualify a member for voting purposes in this category.
>judges watching any of the submitted material at all
I'm just running chu2 simulations in my mind at what would happen if Madoka were to win.
A jap will never win an Oscar because the jews fear the Samurai.
And they're still butthurt about the whole allying with Hitler thing.
We're not even halfway to the most autistic people on 4chan. Just look at /hsg/.
That's stupid as fuck. Well, that's not even a surprise since these are the people who voted Argo for best movie last year.
Fuck the Oscars.
Ok then, we're fucked given the limited re-showings of the previous films and the already limited and booked showings of Rebellion. It was worth a try i guess.
Numbered generals are a different thing from just having threads. New ones are made as soon as the old one dies, even if there's literally nothing to discuss. So it's just a circlejerk. Yeah yeah, you're going to say "how is that any different from Madoka threads?" but seriously, check out some of the really old generals on /vg/ or fucking Homestuck General, jesus christ. I'm glad they're not in favor on /a/.
A jap will never win because anime is for children.
Enough shekels will loosen those sphincters. I don't think the Japanese really care what the American Academy thinks of them, though.
I hope it's atleast nominated
>Yeah yeah, you're going to say "how is that any different from Madoka threads?"
It's definitely not something you can overlook.
>mfw Chu2 movie gets nominated instead of Meguka
>tfw Frozen will win the Oscar instead of Madoka: Rebellion because it is objectively the better film
The madoka threads are image dumps, waifu wars and angry speculah about the movie. Some of these generals have degenerated entirely into namefag circle jerks and blogging communities.
>not liking Argo
Wow, /a/'s shit taste extends beyond just anime!
>because it's objectively made by Pixar
My answer is, go and see for yourself. It's seriously something that has to be seen to be believed.
>mad about his shitty gook cartoon
I liked it but there were better movies there. Argo won because muh american pride.
Last meguca movie is good for 2/3 and then it becomes dogshit.
Frozen is awesome.
Face it, elevens can't make proper international animated films anymore.
Well, it's based off average scores, so if even a couple judges went, it could be eligible.
>The committee(s) will view all motion pictures entered and mark all entries 10, 9, 8, 7 or 6 with the guidelines of 10 (excellent), 8 (good), 7 (fair) or 6 (poor). Those productions receiving an average score of 7.5 or more shall be eligible for nomination..
It's entirely possible for judges to just bullshit a low score though. Just to fill up their 80% quota.
>A show about magical girls? Preposterous! I'll mark it down as a 6/10.
>Now excuse me while I go watch that masterpiece with the quirky talking snowman. Genius! 10/10!
But it wasn't.
Third post of current thread:
>HSG you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity
>the only problem I can think of with the dildo covers is that it might be too hard to get the rubber dildo cover onto the waterbottle without mashing it
I want it to be tight enough so that water doesn't spill
Hold me, /a/.
so when will we know the painful truth that any anime is getting nominated?
Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs 2
Despicable Me 2
Ernest and Celestine
The Legend of Sarila
A Letter to Momo
Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie – Rebellion
Rio: 2096 A Story of Love and Fury
The Smurfs 2
The Wind Rises
I'm not wasting 11 minutes on some youtuber's opinion.
Discussion, even if frivolous, is more natural. And if you want to rag on shit being frivolous, then you need to take the entirety of /a/ into your lens.
Chained generals basically work themselves into the ground, perpetually getting worse - circlejerking and unbelievably consistent/constant shitposting, namely. For all the silliness that HOMURA DID NOTHING WRONG et al. brings, it's nothing in comparison to what I've seen on /vg/.
>This field of contenders will be whittled down to between three to five nominees on January 16, 2014.
I'm sure at least a few went to the rebellion showing without any prior knowledge and only a smaller number caught the re cap films so it will have a low score because its blisteringly fast even if you re watched the series multiple times.
This is what Rebellion has to contend with? Good fucking luck, especially since they'll be watching it with no prior knowledge of the series.
>him being a youtuber instantly discredits his opinion
Madoka has no chance.
No, him analyzing a movie on Youtube discredits his opinion.
Heh, it's pretty funny seeing Madoka on a list with all this stuff I think of as kid's movies.
That doesn't make any sense.
I don't want to waste 11 minutes in something I could read in 2 just for the sake of imagery (in replacement of actual arguments) as it's the case for evey youtube "reviewer". Pretty much what >>100329442 said
Do You Want to Build a Snowman>Cake Song
Despicable Me 2, Frozen, Monsters University, Planes, and maybe The Smurfs 2, calling it no w.
I'm ready for him to win something alright.
Lifetime healing award
Yeah, they can't make fast food quality like westerner's CGI shit anymore since they only know how to make a high quility.
No wonder why fast food shit always sell well as well as disney's shit. just like instant noodle sell more than actual noodle that's why instant noodle is the most delicious noodle in the world.
He's done it once before and he'll do it again this year.
That's the most stupid comparison I've read in a while. Be proud.
If The Rebellion wins some prize it's definitely because its direction more than its writing.
You and me both brother.
The wind rises will probably nominated. We can expect to see relative thread about it on /a/ tomorrow.
>No chance for muhdoka there
No, no, /co/ is on it's 169th Frozen General thread.
What people don't understand is that /co/ is where all the cancer and autism comes from. MLP, Homestuck, GFG, Furry, and now this
This makes me strangely uncomfortable.
I disagree with him and all, though I will agree Frozen had its share of flaws and wasn't the greatest movie ever, but that's not even my main issue. God I hate the internet for giving people this platform of "oh I stand against these tasteless masses who can't see the truth like I can.". Nigga if all you are doing is preaching to people who already agree with you, what the fuck is the point? To suck your own dick for eleven minutes? More so, just because something parodies/subverts common tropes doesn't mean it can't also play them at the same time. Nobody ever said that there wasn't any true love nonsense in Frozen, just that the type of true love (family love over romantic love and fuck the whole "lolincest" shit) was something we don't see very much. It played the true love trope while also giving it a slight twist that we haven't seen with Disney very much.
>just like instant noodle sell more than actual noodle that's why instant noodle is the most delicious noodle in the world.
Madoka and Eva have big and cancerous fanbases like ponies too.
I'll give you that one.
>big outside /co/
Popular and huge way before /co/ and way before 4chan.
You mean your dick wasn't beyond diamonds during that whole sequence? Did someone steal your dick Anon-kun? That's a horrid crime.
>Madoka and Eva have big and cancerous fanbases like ponies too.
>Madoka and Eva have big and cancerous fanbases like ponies too.
No where fucking near it.
>Madoka and Eva anywhere near as bad as MLP
Even combined, it's not even close.
No, I mean the gif. The movement is just weirdly inhuman. that one, however, gives me a certain warmth in my shoulders.
>American Awards show
AND THE NOMINEES ARE:
>Despicable Me 2!
AND THE WINNER IS:
Calling it right now. If The Wind Rises is even nominated, I will be utterly blown away. If Urobutchi somehow wins that Oscar, I will fly to Japan and suck his dick myself.
How much time until we know the nominees?
>If Shinbo somehow wins that Oscar,
Read the thread.
No offense but you're sounding like a /co/ apologist.
I'm glad I could please you Anon-kun.
Madoka probably won't even get nominated, but if it won I would spend the next month just trolling Frozen General until those faggots just fucking killed themselves
The only difference is that ponies stand out more because they are fucking ponies for little girls. Do you think bronies' autism is any different to anime fans' autism?
>they buy pony toys
>i buy figmas
>Madoka and Eva have big and cancerous fanbases like ponies too.
You could take both of those, all the cancer of Toonami's entire following, AND a few cartoons, and it won't amount to MLP's.
>The 86th Academy Awards nominations will be announced live on Thursday, January 16, 2014, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
About 9 hours from now.
I think you might be in the wrong place dude that's the worst comparison I've ever heard
You're such a fucking moron.
>One singular gesture accounts for the combined cringeworthy autism of a fanbase
I'm certain that "buying figures" is something that applies to innumerable fanbases, especially any you belong to. When you have shit like the actual voice actress who headed the whole thing being utterly disgusted of the fanbase, that's when you've gone too far.
>implying that Planes will be nominated
The Academy and American animation industry fucking love Miyazaki. If The Wind Rises is nominated in Animated Feature , it'll almost certainly win over Frozen.
do you berieve in miracles anon?
bronies have actually usurped furries and sonic fans as the worst fanbases
you cant even compare.
No, the problem is that don't have the same degree as marketing as Ghibli did with disney back in the 2000s.
The movie could be the greatest work of film of all time, and it still wouldn't win against the latest thing released by Disney or Dreamworks.
How do you think Kana Asumi would have reacted if she had browsed 2ch/2chan yesterday?
There's, what, 3-5 big daily threads about Eva? They're full of waifu bickering, the same regurgitated discussion, and arguing about whether 3.33 was shit or not. This might be unsightly when kept up constantly, but it still resembles productive posting.
There are a hell of a lot more Madoka threads, always with much less going on intellectually. They're actually pretty bad.
There's an entire board for MLP. An entire board full of stagnant discussion, autism, waifu bestiality, and circlejerking. A board with countless shitty threads daily.
15-20 threads of varying quality are nothing compared to an entire horrible board. And that's ignoring the fact that the bulk of the MLP cesspool isn't on 4chan, and is out shitting on other corners of the internet.
At the absolute worst, shock that so many people want to fuck her because of her voice.
At the absolute best, flattery that so many people want to hold her hand because of her voice.
Tara Strong does not ever want to be around bronies again, and she's made it more than clear at these Pony cons and Pony meetups that their "Dark side" is about the most aggravating thing on earth to her.
>Madoka and Eva have big and cancerous fanbases like ponies too.
Just pretend or real thing?
What was 2ch doing yesterday?
>There's an entire board for MLP
You know why there's an entire board for MLP?
Show me an Eva or Madoka video as bad as this.
I thought she had a hard on for her brony fanboys?
I probably could, but I would suffer an aneurysm in my attempt to find it.
I don't really into /a/ (not sure why I even had the catalog open now that I think about it) so can somebody explain to me what this guy's deal is. I mean, When I started watching Gaim people kept saying a lot of shit and I didn't really pay it much mind but they clearly knew what was gonna happen before I did.
What would happen if he does?
I wouldn't say all Madoka threads are like that, like Eva, you also get the "Was Rebellion shit?" threads and discussion about the movie which are at this point still less stale than 3.33 threads. It's the threads with just a picture of a character you have to avoid, same with Eva.
They're both bad, don't get me wrong. I just don't think there's that big of a distinction.
Are you retarded. I don't like the oscars either but you're just making shit up right now. Where is your citation? Exactly.
I will never understand people who see ugly-shit character design and robot movement CGI like frozen is great.
I guess thier brain got rotten from those stupid-retard westerner cartoon that they keep watchiing since their childhood and never be able to appreciate something better and have to the same taste as 7 years old kid.
God damn it, that guy was creeping me out.
You from /m/? Urobuchi is the the successor to Sad Tomino.
Are you retarded? I literally posted it only a couple comments down from that one in the same comment chain.
Go home, noodlesfag, you're drunk.
>ugly-shit character design and robot movement CGI
I don't think you've see the movie have you
That's not Tara Strong.
Is that mocap?
I just makes me feel a bit too uncanny valley.
She moves like Jackie Chan or any of those super expressive actors in asian movies.
Let It Go blows away any scene from Rebellion. Even Mami and Homura's gunfight and their Sentai Henshin sequence.
You know why always western animation won the award but not your shit otaku garbage?
You know why Miyazaki but not Tomino?
Because you guys don't watch anime for story telling, you just like to watch the genre, the same genre again and again with a bit tiny change.
And you never notice there are A letter to Momo and Possessions in the short list, beause both are not your shitty genre film like Madokq
And a letter to Momo has already won
Nice Youtube account faggot
God that designs are disgusting the male is good the female is not.
>Eye of the Tiger
>added to Workout Music
This type of 3D animation just feels so sterile and lacking in personality. It might be technically well made, but I'd rather watch any scene from Rebellion over this.
I'll never understand why everyone's cumming over this. It's a pop ballad with CG animation. Granted, I think the scene is well orchestrated, but it's nothing I haven't seen before.
how the hell is this song workout music?
It's not even quarantine. Moot already said it himself, he was tired of receiving hate mails from people of /b/ and /v/ complaining about pony reaction images. Reaction images from a cartoon show.
At least they are cute. Women in western videogames look like trannies.
I am from 2034. Madoka is going to win the Oscars. This eventually leads to the death of anime and Japan turns back to imperialism due to America killing anime, igniting WWIII. Also, 4.0 was shit.
>sterile and lacking in personality
It's so fucking funny that /co/ regurgitates this same autistic shit for anime. Both things can be worthwhile, you faggots.
That's some fluid animation... I mean, that looks REALLY good. I'm probably still not seeing the movie though because of that fucking snowman.
Fuck you, fucking snowman fuck.
>Also, 4.0 was shit
I didn't need a time traveler to tell me that, but thanks anyway.
did miura ever finish berserk?
>This eventually leads to the death of anime and Japan turns back to imperialism due to America killing anime,
God bless America.
>Because you guys don't watch anime for story telling
Absolutely incorrect, especially for Madoka.
>you just like to watch the genre
I'm fairly certain that 90+% of Madoka's fanbase were not fans of Magical Girl shows prior to watching it. Not to mention the value of this series is, in no way, based upon its quality as a Magical Girl series.
So go circle-jerk Frozen in /co/ again, faggot.
He dies next month.
>4.0 was shit
>I'm fairly certain that 90+% of Madoka's fanbase were not fans of Magical Girl shows prior to watching it
Do you only associate with Narutofags or something?
It's just my opinion, I'm not telling you or /co/ how to think.
I just struggle to see the personal influence of individual animators and directors like you do in anime. I'd be glad to have you educate me otherwise, but most Disney 3D animation feels the same to me.
What about HXH?
I wouldn't say im a fan of magical girl shows meaning I didn't follow every precure, but I did consider princess tutu a masterpiece
I associate with a large amount of Madokafags. Most of them say the exact same thing, every single time.
>I thought was a cute magical girl show, so I didn't want to bother/I don't watch magical girl shows, but I watched it for cute girls
>Suddenly it took a darker turn
>Now I stuck with it to see where shit went right/wrong
But anon the boat.;-;
It's the same Tangled girl
Screen cap it, also please tell us your email so we can asking you for evidence.
Not giving e-mail because I actually don't have one.
Be sure to swallow, anon.
>expecting a cute magical girl show by urobuchi
90% of Madoka fans are newfags? How the hell 90% of the fanbase didn't expect a dark turn? Hell, 2ch was calling it Chidamari Sketch months before it aired.
Because most Madoka fans don't know Urobutchi's reputation. Madoka is Mainstream as fuck, if you seriously don't know that.
Did Spice & Wolf get a season 3?
TL NOTE: CHIDAMARI MEANS BLOODSOAKED
Wow so clever japs
The CG is nice but the WotLK cinematic still has the best CG snow I've seen.
Also the song itself was nice but nothing fantastic.
>comparing a stylized disney movie to an emotionally heavy video game cinematic
I'm pretty sure this trailer was the only reason why I kept playing the game for a couple years
I'm strictly talking about the snow m8, it was really nice snow.
In what way do you mean "no"?
Ugh, don't remind me Anon. Warcraft is like seeing your childhood friend grow up to be the drug-addled town bicycle. It hurts.
3.3 was when it all went downhill for me, and I'd been playing since vanilla..
I swear to god, if Blizz's cinematic team ever makes a feature length movie, I will have sex with the digital download.
The HotS opening cinematic was better.
Blizzard is making a Warcraft 1 Movie, but I don't remember if they said if it would be CG or not.
Dear Khaz'Goroth, I hope so.
Urobutcher isn't jewish enough to win
No, from what I heard, it'll be live action.
Gods help us all.
We're actually talking about games.
If it was CG I would kind of want to see it, but I don't want to give blizzard money.
It's not full CG, there is actors. Shooting actually starts this month.
I'm going to be there.
Does your uncle work at Nintendo as well?
What Disney and all the other studies are doing is not "stylized", it's generic, it's the same shit they've been doing for years, what Madoka, Kill la kill or Jojo do is stylized, for give you popular examples.
Fuck no. This scene only works because of the music. The animation in itself isn't quite creative or interesting. You can't possibly compare this to a fight sequence anyways.
It doesn't matter if it's generic. It just has to be done in a certain, unrealistic way. Are you saying that it doesn't have a certain style, or that it's realistic?
Yeah next year for the psycho pass movie.
Am I the only one who doesn't really like the song?
The addition of the cross-server dungeon/raid/battleground stuff destroyed any sense of community the servers had and increasingly trivialized every encounter. There's no coming back from that mistake ;_;.
Define "like". I don't care for Disney songs as a pretty solid rule, but this one in particular doesn't irritate me or anything.
Do you understand what stylized means or are you that fucking retarded?
no one here knows what anything means, not even me
>When you have shit like the actual voice actress who headed the whole thing being utterly disgusted of the fanbase
>Tara Strong does not ever want to be around bronies again
I really, really enjoy a lot of the old ones particularly in hunchback.
I've just seen this posted multiple times as some sort of defense for it being a good movie and everyone sucking its dick.
I mean I've heard worse, but it realy doesn't do much for me.
GOD WILLS IT
>it's generic, it's the same shit they've been doing for years
This is the most common complaint about anime.
>Giving series titles instead of the names of the illustrators or directors
Hellfire and Make a Man out of you were both good. And a few others escaping my memory.
Not that guy, but
>This is the most common complaint about anime.
That's from people who don't watch anime or don't know anything about animation.
I'm still waiting for that guy to show me how personalized Disney 3D animation is and how it can even stand up to anime in that aspect, but he didn't respond.
Disney is still a single studio, you shouldn't compare it to japanese animation as a whole. It would be like comparing Sunrise to western animation as a whole.
holy fuck /co/, I thought the madoka fanbase on /a/ was batshit insane. The west really likes their lesbians more than we do
Except Sunrise doesn't have much persistent staff. It's why you get stuff like Tiger and Bunny and Love Live.
The studio you're looking for is Ghibli.
Okay, Disney-like 3D animation, but that's probably getting too general and I'll get burned.
But still Sunrise has a lot more personality. You can tell what animators do what, who the director is, feel the character designer's influence, etc. It isn't really about the studio.
wow, that's actually a decent list. People usually just say shit like The Croods or Planes, which is CGI box office shit, but there are some solid contenders on there that would make the nominations over Madoka
Gaim is not THAT good.

Shut the fuck up, Titor.
The Wind Rises wins to honor Miyazaki. It is his last movie, after all.
I think he means because Kyouko blew herself up to kill Oktavia.
Japan already has attack homucopters.
Gotta love how nerds get in the military all over the world. A couple of sergeants from my regiment play D&D, my lieutenant and my old Colonel played WoW, and I had an hour long conversation with a guy about how manga is different in nature from comic books.
>and my old Colonel played WoW
Guess who's never making it to full General...
Considering in America you need full-on Congressional approval for every one-star, it's not surprising.
Most top out at LTC.
There's absolutely no way he'll even get nominated. I'd eat my shoes if he won.
I hope your shoe is made out of leather.
Wind Rises is fairly popular.
It's about WW2 or more specifically, an engineer who helped design the Zero plane.
If Frozen wins over Madoka i'm going to choke someone.
Just wanted to say that.
There is a 0% chance Madoka is going to win. Get your chokin' arm ready.
that's a big bet you're making, you have to be delusional to think madoka is going to win
My choking arm is always ready.
Not really Madoka losing as much as Frozen winning.
Because Frozen is a dogshit movie.
He did not say anything about Madoka wining.
Unless they do some sort of losers ranking or shit.
All I know is that if The Wind Rises doesn't win or gets nominated, I will walk into Cheryl Boone Isaacs' (current president of the Academy) office and kick her in the cunt.
Is Frozen even any good? I have a friend who says it's great but she's the kind of person that'll suck any Disney movie's dick. Based on the trailers I've seen as well as the promotional art, the movie looks generic as fuck.
Its amazing. Thats all I hear about it. Everyone loves it. Its the best. You will love it. Its awesome.
Yeah, this. That movie's story is 100% Oscarbait.
I actually didn't care for it, but if it wins and prompts him to unretire again and make Porco Rosso 2 I HOPE IT WINS.
But it was so melodramatic. SO melodramatic.
Only good parts were poster scene and the dream sequences with gaikokujin planebro.
full sized poster of this when?
I really enjoyed it, the characters were incredibly endearing. It's nearing levels I feel for golden-age Disney classics.
It's very good, best Disney film in a while. Music is very modern Broadway sounding, less classic Disney, but it's still got a lot of great hits (Let It Go and Frozen Heart especially). Story is solid, nothing really wowed me about the animation except the ice effects I guess.
Olaf is the comedy relief they whored out for the advertisements, but he's not as prevalent as they would make you think. He did have a song that went on a bit too long, but otherwise he was pretty unobtrusive and even had a nice moment later in the story.
Since when is melodrama a bad thing? It wasn't supposed to be a cutesy, heartwarming movie. The Wind Rises was supposed to be heartBREAKING. It directly contrasts to every single movie that Miyazaki has made. One of the main influences on the movie is the Japanese notion of mono no aware, or "the pathos/transience of things". It is the idea that happiness is a fleeting emotion that won't last forever, but to make the best of that time as you can and cherish those memories always. It pretty much highlights the love between Jiro and Naoko before she dies of tuberculosis. Mono no aware is a concept that's existed in Japanese literature since The Tale of Genji, which is the first piece of Japanese written literature ever written.
Disney's best film since Tangled.
Tangled was 6/10 at best, and most of that is the songs carrying the movie.
This article is real? Whoa.
It's brety gud, at least an 8/10. Unfortunately, they changed the villain to a protagonist at the last second, so there are some plot holes and the villain number doesn't make sense.
Up was a shitty movie.
6/10 is a bit too harsh there. Tangled at least deserves a 7. I found it better than Frozen.
>tfw Fucking Hideaki Anno voices the main character
I just... I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it.
There is literally a 0% chance of it getting any nomination whatsoever
sorry guys, but if anyone had any common sense here you'd realize that nobody gives any shits about this movie at all
I actually felt Anno's voice to be surprisingly fitting for Jiro's character.
most on /a/ on delusional foil hat wearing nuts OF COURSE THEY HAVE NO COMMON SENSE
More forced, manufactured garbage
Not sure how people get suckered for the same goddamn formula every time
At least pixar's earlier stuff felt somewhat genuine, but the pure disney shit just feels saccharine and disgusting
I think it's safe to assume that most anything would be more fitting than Joseph Gordon Levitt.
>No actual criticisms
Are you two retards actually reading the thread? Almost nobody actually think Rebellion has a shred of a chance of winning.
But he'll be a better fit than Anno. Mark my words anon. I'm watching it in dubbed in February.
I give it a 7/10 but it reminded me of a bit of pre 2000 disney movies.
>The Wind Rises won't win because of "Oy vey a movie that makes you care about a Jap during WWII? Oy gevalt remember Pearl Harbor!"
>2. The Wind Rises - (Walt Disney Pictures)
For the record, there will be a livestream of the announcements here:
Just in case anyone wants to be disappointed live.
The dialogue and songs were really bad
Whereas the old disney movies felt timeless, the dialogue in this felt like something that came manufactured straight from the facebook age
Seriously, something about the romance just felt un-genuine as fuck
Did anyone else get that feel?
The romance was basically second choice
Show fucking seinen to your amerifat children, and then come back.
>Seeking recognition from ameridiots
That's like hoping you'll be accepted by the popular airhead girl,not only are you retarded, you also lose your sense of self-worth for nothing.
Did that popular airhead girl reject you in high school, anon?
He's here, obviously it was the unpopular one
Nope I was the guy laughing, cause she cried when I called her an idiot.
How long till it airs? I hope at least one of the two anime gets nominated.
