Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the most iconic anime of all time, and Freudian analysis of Rei Ayanami, Asuka Langley, and Shinji Ikari, provides a whole new layer, and how does this relate to Hideaki Anno himself?
I am a strong believer that superhero movies don’t need to be “high cinema,” and that Martin Scorscese was right when he called them the amusement parks of movies. I also don’t believe that’s a bad thing. I think superhero movies should be fun! Comic books are a fun medium! Comic book movies provide a lighthearted and fun way to address serious issues in the same way comics themselves do. That being said, while Wonder Woman 1984 is a fun and colorful trip through 80s fashion, the plot seemed confused, and, at times, exhausted with itself.
